Iโ€™m fuming ๐Ÿ˜ก

I was hired partly because of sales and partly because of my content


I have three times the pipeline than my coworkers.....because of my content


New people got hired who now say my content is offensive and annoying even though the results and feedback Iโ€™ve continuously gotten says otherwise


so I have to stop what made me unique to this role


but the money is great lol


what the hell do I do now

Hmm... but yet you're yielding results. Head scratcher. What is offensive about your content? Is it the language you're using or something else? And is the positive feedback from individuals you're selling to?ย ย

Also curious what is being perceived as offensive..


Does management also feel this way or just peers? If peers then depending on what the content is- if it's actually not a big deal then F-them. If management's coming down on you then may be time to move on

I should probably rephrase itโ€™s not offensive itโ€™s just out there. I make some goofy and some educational content. The new hires being referenced are more buttoned up from a much larger company where personal brand wasnโ€™t welcome and viewed as dissent.

then in that case to the hell with them! If it's helping build pipeline and eventually deals then nothing else matters. Keep it UP!


Im also very curious to see said content haha

No way to dial down on the content? If that can be done, then just change the specifics and stay!

I am actively doing so but almost had it written in my employment contract that I get creative freedom if the results of inbound keep pace. which they are... I've generated a few million in pipeline in a few months on Linkedin alone

Then I really do hope that they see through the value you are bringing and check their culture

Why do you have to stop? Is management forcing you to? If not, I'd keep going, and I'd track the metrics of success so you have ammo to tell them to back off.

What could you sell that relies on your content that pisses off your coworkers that impacts how you do your job...?

I sell tech to revenue teams, the new employees are engineers and don't like sales content being associated with the brand that's not a boring white-paper
