Sales Spam on Google Plus

By now, I’m pretty used to getting spam on LinkedIn, as I get it at least several times each week. But now, it seems as though the sales spammers are now targeting Google Plus, and somehow sending unsolicited sales spam that show up as notifications on Google Plus. Here’s the latest one, that I received just today. I have scratched out the name of the person and their company and URL, but you get the idea.

Click on the photo above to see a larger version of it. As you can see, it is personalized and sent directly to me. It’s just really trying to sell me on their “franchise” opportunity, by saying that I’m a great sales person.

Really!?!?

Have you ever tried to see me sell something? Probably not.

This is exactly why I’m an SEO expert, a writer, and a content creation guy. I don’t do sales. I’m a tech expert, not some sleazy sales guy.

What I’m wondering, though, is how they manage to automate the sending of this Google Plus spam, as it truly would only be beneficial if you did it on a large scale, and not just contact someone manually, one by one?

Have you ever received spam or sales type spam on Google Plus?
