Hey everyone, I'm Neil Patel and today I'm gonna share with you how to deal with negative social media comments.

You're gonna get them. Again, it's just a question of when. The more popular you get, the more hate you're gonna get and it happens with everyone, it happens with me, it happens with the Tim Ferrisses of the world, the Gary Vaynerchucks of the world, it's never ending.

#1: Don't delete the negative comments

If they're saying something that's just really bad like vulgar, of course, delete them but if they're just hating on you and they disagree with you, don't delete it, that's not right.

#2: You can respond

If you have a good counterargument, respond to it and you know what? You can prove your case and make your points.

#3: Just let it be and don't fuel the fire, in which just ignore it and that's what I usually do

Yes, when someone says something and I truly disagree and I know they're wrong, and I believe saying a comment and responding will help teach other people, I do respond but when I know someone's just gonna continually hate on me what I do is is I just ignore it and when you do ignore it, most people just end up leaving you alone after a while and they don't keep coming back.

That's how you deal with it and sadly you can't get rid of negative comments, you're always gonna have them but it's okay, it's a part of life.

      Loved the honesty, I’m not sure if you used a site called sararah (something) where people can anonymously message you. And you can’t even respond. There were lotsa haters ☺️ for me (I’m Ajay S Nair, CEO) But as u said it indicates our growth! Have you used it?
