So, I understand others wanting to do the same. However, there are some marketing techniques that just rub me the wrong way. You may consider them "pet peeves." Some push me too far. I will not help market or promote the product no matter how good my feelings are towards the product itself, because I don't want to "reward bad behavior." I will list three for you today that I have experienced on Facebook.
For example, I have had an email by someone who said that I was so closed minded because I would not try a product. So, I emailed back saying that I didn't ask for the email and that being called "closed minded" wasn't not enticing me to buy the product any more than any of the other conversation. Hmmm!
I have also gotten a friend request by another author. So, I accept. Then, without saying "hi" or "thank you for accepting the friend request" or any nicety at all, I get "check out my book." Umm! No! I am happy to check out books and even promote the ones that strike me nicely. However, if you are going to go through the trouble of friend requesting me, you are going to say "hi" before you are going to get me to check out anything.
I have also been tagged in a multiple chat about a book a launch or some sort of promotion. While that may seem like it is saving time to get the news out to people, it is a big put off to some. I don't check out the event or book, because of it. Notifications just keep popping up whenever anyone posts anything concerning the conversation. I get twenty notifications that people are leaving the conversation, plus all the other notifications when people actually say something. Hmmm! Nope! Not for me!
