I’m not a good salesperson.
I’m that person that always shares a compliment, as a “team effort.” I’m that person that responds with “aw shucks” when someone says good job. I have a really hard time selling a product or service, even one I really believe in, because even though it is right for me, doesn’t necessarily make it right for everyone. And I hate the thought that someone may be disappointed in something I recommended.
Even with Thought Pops, I have taken a passive marketing approach…simply linking to my Facebook page and Twitter account and hoping that maybe one of my friends will take the time to read it.
But that’s all gonna change now. I’m making an aggressive move. People can now subscribe to Thought Pops and have it delivered to their email.
At the bottom left tool bar on Thought Pops, you will see a section marked “Follow Blog Via Email.” Click on the “Follow” button, answer a question or two and technology will magically email you when there is a new post.
This fabulous new feature has been added in response to requests from readers, so I guess that makes it less “aggressive marketing” and more “you asked, we listened,” but hey…if I can get two more people who like to read my random thoughts on life, it will bring a smile to my face.
But I can’t lie, I’m still worried so to those of you disappointed, I’m sorry…and it still feels a little like shameless self-promotion to me.
