What Does Spam Mean and How Can You Handle It?

What does SPAM mean on the internet? Well I have done some research and found some of the best and funniest descriptions of what spam means.

SPAM = Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages
SPAM = Short Pointless Annoying Messages
SPAM = Self Promotional Advertising Message

These are of course just a few, but I do like the third one best. Now how can you stop spam on Facebook, Twitter or any social networking site?

The truth is you can't really, some will always find a way through the net and worm its way into your inbox.

Of course you can always report spam and that person will get their account canceled, but they can always come back with a new email address and be up and spamming very quickly.

You will have spam filters on your email to reduce spam coming into your inbox.

Now every time somebody pitched their business opportunity to me on any social networking site I used to get mad, annoyed and angry and block that person.

But not anymore, I deal with them in a completely different way. You see they don't know any different. They may well have been told to do this by their upline.

So should we punish them for not understanding the correct etiquette of using the social media sites? Or do we take 10 minutes of our time and help them out a little bit?

Spend a bit of time getting to know that person as you never know where it will lead. Ask them how long they have been online, where they generate leads for their business, what they most struggle with online/offline and start to take an interest in them.

Some will answer your questions, some won't, but what you can do is block the people that keeps the BS coming about being successful and millionaires. I don't know any millionaires who need to push their company replicated website on anyone.

Have some free training in place when you talk to them. Based on the answers they give you can show them a solution to the problems they are having. Those that live in the real world and want help will be happy that you spent the time to show them a better way of building their business.

You stand a good chance of them joining your training system and then joining your primary business at some point in the future.

Most people online want to build their business the smartest way possible, and become successful. So even if they are pitching their opportunity now they may well be aware that it is not the right way to do things and you could be just what the doctor ordered.

At the end of the day we will never completely get rid of spam but if we can help educate just a few people along the way then so much the better.
