"Yes, I blocked you bec of el em em…"

Readers: This person’s talking about your competition. So relax.

The title was a tweet today from a guy with thousands of followers – to someone he’d blocked. Here’s the rest of it:

“Yes, I blocked you because of em el em (hell you can’t even type the letters without the vultures descending)”

I saw it and asked him what his experience was with MLMers – and he posted back:

“It requires aggressive + deceptive efforts. I Tweeted 3 letters once, and was spammed for weeks.” (the 3 letters – mlm)

Aggressive I can deal with. But deceptive, not good. Vultures – not good either.

I got this (as one of a series) in my email last week:

“Can you say $10K over, and over with a Onetime investment of $275 and all that is needed is 2 folks……… That’s it …… For Ever!”

People really! What kind of hapless and ignorant people is this pitch asking for? Does anyone with ANY business sense really think a one time investment of $275 makes $10,000 ‘over and over’?

Oi vey.

Take QTs advice. If this is the competition you’re up against, my readers, relax. The good peeps will be waiting for you.

About the author

Kim Klaver


  • I've been on twitter for a few years now and I never mention those three little letters and rarely post my products.

    I am a true beliver in finding customers… ala the Kim Klaver method.

    I post about the things I care about, green, organic, sustainable and then people recognize I am real, not a person "pitching" a product or "opportunity" to them.

    I unfollow anyone that pitches me a product or business immediately, especially when they send it in a DM.

    Using social media is about creating relationships and you have to build trust, this does not happen overnight or with one "tweet" or DM.
