- The showbiz reporter also encourages networking people to become more realistic in convincing their prospects
Below is the Facebook post written by Ogie Diaz. Read on.
"Dear Networking people, lalo na dun sa mga nagpo-post ng mga naipundar daw nilang magarang sasakyan (like Porche or Ferrrari or Maserati)....
"Yung rehistro niyan na nakapangalan mismo sa inyo ang ipakita nyo, wag yung sume-selfie lang kayo katabi ng sasakyan para mas maniwala yung mga prospect downlines nyo na kayo ang rightful owner.
"Magkano rin yan? Milyon-milyon ang halaga. So yan ba talaga ang una nyong bibilhin o ipupundar sa milyones na kinikita nyo para i-post at engganyuhin ang mga taong sumali na sa networking?
"Di ba mas maganda kung house and lot or condo ang ipinupundar nyo at di yang mga sasakyang yung iba'y nagpa-selfie lang na kunwari ay kanila ang kotse?
"Unahin nyo ang bahay dahil mas nag-a-appreciate ang value nyan yan kesa sa sasakyan. Nang sa ganon, ma-inspire nyong mag-join ang mga tao dahil magkakabahay sila, hindi magkakaroon agad ng magarang tsikot.
"At please, tip lang sa ibang nagyayabang na yumaman sila sa networking lang, utang na loob, pag mag-iimbita kayo ng mga prospect, manlibre, kayo huwag sa coffee shop na kape lang ang iti-treat nyo.
"Dun nyo dalhin sa fine dining para mas ramdam nilang totoo nga ang sinasabi nyong yumaman kayo diyan sa networking. Pakainin nyo ng steak, wag yung dinala nyo lang sa fastfood eh kayo tong nagpe-press release na mayaman na kayo di ba?
"O don't get me wrong, networking people, ha? Tulad na rin ng lagi nyong tanong....
"Openminded naman siguro kayo, di ba?
"So sino gustong maging downline ko? #Charot"
(Dear networking people, especially to those who would post their fancy cars which they claimed they accumulated from networking [like Porche or Ferrari or Maserat].
Show the official registration of these cars under your name, instead of taking selfies beside them so that your prospect downlines will believe you even more that you are the rightful owner.
That’s how much? They cost millions. So is that what you will really buy first from the millions you got, just to share on social media and encourage people to join networking?
Wouldn’t it be better if you rather invest in a house and lot or in a condo and not in vehicles where some would only take a photo with and pretend they own the cars.
Prioritize a house because people will appreciate more its value compared to cars. With that, you will inspire people to participate because they will get to own a house, and not with the idea of having luxury cars immediately.
And please, just another tip for those boasting that they got rich because of networking alone, for heaven’s sake, if you will invite your prospects, do not treat them at a coffee shop and offer them only a coffee.
Bring them instead to a high-end restaurant so they will believe that what you are claiming - that you become wealthy from networking - is actually true. Offer them steak, and don’t just bring them to a fast food chain, since it is you who declared that you are well-off.
Don’t get me wrong, networking people, okay? Just like what you would always say…
You are probably open-minded, right?
So who wants to be my downline?)
