to Spam or not to Spam

If you are going to spam a person's Facebook business page make sure it counts.

Today a fabric business decided to leave a comment with a link back to their store in the hope that I will click on it and I will in turn like their page.

Thats all well and good but their comment rings hollow as my business uses wool not fabric.  Why would I bother to click on the link as its fairly obvious to me that they haven't even bothered to find out what kind of business I run, they are simply on the hunt for 'Likes'.

Please, I beg you, if you feel the need to spam on Facebook or any other social media platform, make sure it counts.  Personally I think it degrades your brand and makes you look unprofessional.

Do you spam? Have you found it effective in finding paying customers and not just 'Likes'?
