WARNING: SHOCKING LANGUAGE FROM CUSTOMER BELOW
Ok, so maybe the title was a little dramatic, but still, I didn’t know I was *this* awesome at marketing 🙂
Over the weekend, when I thought of giving away my best-selling book on Amazon for free on the book’s blog, I never imagined that my copy writing style & marketing prowess would bring out such strong emotions in people… 🙂
So, on one of the email groups that I’m a part of, I announced that they could get my book for free. And apparently, one guy wanted to just buy a digital copy right away. And when he couldn’t find a “buy” button on the blog, here’s what he wrote:
“You have no Fucking idea how to sell – you are a third world CUNT – when a prospect has already made a decision to buy you should provide the click button to buy – you have failed – because you – do not believe that you can succeed – am I right cocksucker?”
Now that is an EXACT copy-paste from his email.
Now here’s my dilemma:
I was so furious initially, that I wasted most of my day yesterday plotting revenge on this guy, and how to ruin his career and online reputation. I wrote up an entire blog post spending several hours, detailing every email exchange we had. But didn’t publish it.
See, on one side, I wasn’t sure if going ahead with my revenge saga would do me me any good at all. Too much time wasted non-productively, too much negative energy – the usual “law of attraction” stuff.
But on the other side, jerks like this can’t go on without facing any consequences, and go on like business as usual after such a racist rant.
But then peace prevailed. And I have decided to let go.
But feel free to comment below and let me know what you think.
