I suspect that my latest event was not unique. I recently went to a social event, not a
network or business development mingle-thing. Apparently half the people who attended
figured this was not a social get together but indeed a networking function and tried to sell me professional goods and services, insurance, real estate services, you name it, they pedaled it.
I’ve been to network marketing things and they have a legitimate purpose in the proper
time and place. My wish for the rest of the year is that people act ‘place appropriate’. In more spiritual terminology; Be Here Now!
This 100% all the time, anywhere and everywhere guerrilla marketing thing is too much. I
am reminded of some wise old Wordsworth; that; the world is too much with us. It’s not rude and for decades people speak of mixing business with pleasure, I get it. I just don’t care for it.
So Bobs, think about where you market your ‘stuff’ and if you really care for your market share and your customers, give me some space.
