Slamming Links Down My Throat

Permission Marketing BookI would log into Facebook to have this guy send me links to work he has done.  I’m not trying to be a jerk but, I don’t want to see his work, does he actually think I have time to look at what he’s been doing? As Michelle from Full House would say, “HOW RUDE!”.  I would never throw a link to my blog to a friend via Facebook chat, WTF?

Has our world got to the point where we are allowed to shove anything down anyone’s throat expecting them to like it?  Not a chance in hell.  When someone “tells” me to look at something I purposely look in the opposite direction.

Ideas don’t spread by force, marketing needs to take a lesson from child psychology, what ever you tell me to do/look at/be a part of, by nature, I want to do the opposite.

“People don’t believe what you tell them.
They rarely believe what you show them.
They often believe what their friends tell them.
They always believe what they tell themselves.”
-Seth Godin

We have entered the era of Permission Marketing
