Love Me, Love Me Not
I would love it if you followed me on Facebook, Twitter, and here on my blog - but only if you want to.
I know that sounds stupid. No one is holding a gun to your head or anything, but if I run a contest and say you have to follow me somewhere just to enter then I do feel like I'm forcing you.
I've held contests in the past and require entrants to follow me because then they will magically be interested in everything I have to say! Right? Wrong. More often than not they followed me just to try to win a prize and then dumped me afterwards. I don't know if that made them feel icky, but it made me feel icky. I don't like that feeling. Do you?
I want you to follow me because you want to. That's it, really. A friend recently told me that's really bad marketing. Huh. Well, I think putting out a sucky book is bad marketing. Facebook, Twitter, and my blog are simply places to keep you up to date on what I'm doing if you already like me or my work....or my awesome collection of shoes!!! :)))))
