Our June 24th Post was titled: “It was a great party, until…” (review post here) It attracted some thoughtful comments.

My friend Rob submitted this comment: “People who advertise without connecting to the group are just another version of spamming. Many Facebook groups forbid it and will oust anyone who practices this.”

Rob then asks: “But what if someone knows of a problem many of them have and want to offer a solution? If this person accurately states the problem, others identify with it, and this person offers empathy and a solution, would that be selling? Zig Zigler would say, “Stop selling and start helping people.” Would that be okay?”

Thank you, Rob. I think your questions are very thought-provoking and interesting, and I would like to get everyone’s comments on Rob’s key question: “… would that be selling?”

Please comment for our Arghers community comment section below the post. And please comment on others’ comments too, if you like, and we’ll have a conversation. Arghs!
