Give me a reason or just **** off.
I’ve noticed a surge in spam and general electronic clutter. It is annoying me! Rather than making a song and dance I thought I’d just blog. It’s not just spam, too many people are generating meaningless content.
When we are the creator of anything we take on responsibility to create something that matters. If it has no reason that will benefit the reader it should simply not exist.
Are you creating content to entertain, to inform, to rally for a cause, or are you just creating noise to get seen and to increase your fans and followers?
Don’t tweet unless you have a profound statement. Only recommend followers that create brilliant content, and tell your followers why. This will get you followers that follow you for your insights and high-quality connections.
Don’t ever send me an email to try and sell me something, especially not digital marketing services. If you knew about marketing you would phone me (yourself, not your Asian call centre).
You probably get the message.. Junk gets ignored and puts you in the trash can.
Lets all strive to pull not push. Create something wonderful and put it out there, followers and customers will come. Don’t create beige content and spam people who don’t care. It does you more damage than you realise.
This goes for real world stuff too. Lets create lovely woolly things that people will cherish. Lets create stuff that is worth re-tweeting.
