If you want people to join in… send a limo?

Sad to hear about Lou Reed… loved him back in the 80’s…

Watching X Factor on TV, the judges roll up in a nice limo and land at a red carpet which takes them all the way to the green room where they can put on their pink stilettos, click their heals together and take the long walk on stage, listening to the adulation of the crowd and to their seat… they love it…

Would they bother to join in if the limo wasn’t sent… catch the number 42 bus, get off at Waterloo, get the tube to Millenium Dome… or the water bus… see you there Shazza! Yeah, right, sometime never…

So what makes you think your fans will follow your blog unless you invite them personally?

Saying, “Just search for I’m so fab dot com, it’s easy, then click on the fourth link down the yellow brick road, right next door to the Munchkins Valley ice cream parlour… half way down the page, next to the tribute to Lou Reed, you’ll see an opt-in form… fill that in with War & Peace and you’ll get my greatness in your inbox… easy peasy lemon squeezy init?”

No it blinking ain’t… just send me an invite and I’ll accept it if I’m in the mood… tarr very much…

Now that is more likely to bring on a perfect day for your fans than having to search high and low on your website for the right buttons to press don’t you think?

Sent out an invite to 300 people Monday after 4PM and as I type this, less than 2 hours later, 20+ more are following my blog… that could well be 40+ more by the morning… 60 by tea time… the 80/20 rules works it’s magic yet again…

Thank you.
