My first introduction was marked as spam…most likely reason: when I mentioned what I was working on, I included the link to the site. It wasn’t my intention to spam anyone; since having spent time on and/or moderating discussion boards since 1994 I’ve been an ardent “anti-spam” crusader.
Funny thing is, because the site has gone live and I’m in full “marketing mode,” all my sentences (EVEN IN REAL LIFE!) might sound like advertising. I can understand the Bill Hicks bit about marketing/advertising a lot more now (will not post it here, as I’d almost certainly get kicked out ).
Anyway, I’m a Toronto-based promoter and website creator…and one of the challenges I am facing, as I mentioned above, is having people believe I’m a real person when I’m online. I would love to know how promoters here work around the fact that, because they are always promoting, not everything they say “needs” to be an advertisement.
Hope that’s better, and Have a Great Day!
