How To Deal With Social Media Trolls


Do you know how to deal with a social media troll?

Recently I encountered one of these miserable people who decided to hurl an insult at me.

I made the mistake of lashing back…

But luckily I came to my senses and realized that I was just adding fuel to a fire.

So I deleted my comment and blocked the troll.

This is how I recommend you deal with haters: ignore them and block them.

If someone chooses to be a troll and spew negativity they don’t deserve a response.

Instead of being discouraged by the negativity of trolls take it as a good sign and use it to fuel your success.

Having trolls (AKA haters) is actually a good sign: it means you’re making an impact.

The only people who experience no resistance are the people who do nothing.

Consider any wildly successful and powerful people: Donald Trump, Justin Bieber, Drake, the list goes on…

…they all have plenty of haters and the haters create awareness that helps them stay relevant.

My experience has been that for every negative statement someone sends my way there are plenty more positive interactions and compliments.

Positive feedback from quality people more than makes up for any negativity you might experience on social media from trolls.

Here’s an email I got yesterday that made my day from one of my subscribers:

I have been a loyal subscriber to your list for sometime now and immensely enjoy the unique and — — USEFUL info you share.

I have found some gems of great ideas for myself from your emails, so I want to thank you.

If you’re just starting to take your social media brands to the next level don’t let the thought of trolls and negativity stop you from being you and doing everything you can to create massive social media success for yourself.
