Social Selling on Facebook IS creepy!
I came across an interesting infographic from HubSpot where they asked “Is Social Selling Creepy?”. Indeed it could be if you do not change the word selling to serving. Taking the approach of Social Serving to your clients and providing them value will always win over ” I see you play golf, I do too, buy from me”
However the survey HubSpot ran was specifically around the research you conduct and what you do with that found information. So it is very interesting to read.
Not surprising were the Facebook responses.
Would is be creepy if a salesperson sent you a Facebook message? Yes = 81%
Would it be creepy if a salesperson sent you a friend request? Yes = 78%
I wrote about Facebook in this blog, perhaps you have read it? They asked, Do you Facebook? I said, No
So here is the full infographic, I would be delighted to hear your thoughts on what you think is or is not creepy about a sales person reaching out via social media. Pop a comment below.
