How Not to Promote on Facebook…
This is quite a short post.
I get this on a fairly frequent basis, so I thought I’d point out a few things:
1. Always introduce yourself: this was the very first time I’d heard of this person.
2. ‘Er.. Why would I be excited about your release…?‘ In light of 1 above, why they thought I’d actually start counting down is beyond me…
3. ‘Er… Okay. If you say so…‘. This project might actually be this person’s best work to date, but I’d recommend someone else provide your endorsement.
4. ‘Who..???‘ I’d never heard of those people either.
The fact that I’d never heard of any of these people doesn’t mean they aren’t amazing musicians (I’m going to assume they are), but the advice here: watch how you name-drop…
5. Yes, I deleted it.
P.S. 1 I forgot to mention (someone’s just pointed it out to me): ‘Caps Lock’ is on! Don’t know how I could have missed that! 🙂
P.S. 2 if by some stroke of fortuitous circumstance I was actually interested in following up on this, there are no links to the artist’s website or any of the music services mentioned…
