The best part is, those people doing the spam eventually end up on our side, trying to stop the spam efforts.
Do you promise?
My thing is "know your audience...". If you come here and see NO spam on a business site that should be a hint and a half that if it was ok, we would all be doing it!
Oh, I guess I should stop sending all those spam posts. I thought that`s what everyone on the net wanted to read. After all, I see spam everywhere and thought SuN would want to enjoy it too! I`ll try posting more appropriate content.Of course this comment is just a JOKE. Don`t send me a bunch of junk by private message. I already get enough of that content in my regular email box. Ohhhh it was a joke... Whew, I am so glad you clarified that for us. I thought we finally caught one.
Ok guys, we can take down the rope ... (for now).
Thanks Joel and Steve for the explanation and the assurance that I am NOT crazy...you hush Nikole and Diana! It was like a huge pink elephant in the middle of the room!
I have to say I was getting really pissed off because I feel like the people here work hard to share information and expose their businesses to each other every day. And to have some drive-by spammer come in bringing absolutely no value is an issue, no make that a violation.
I say we go old west on him. Somebody get a rope...!
So maybe, it`s "the kids reward system that grows with your child."I also like the phrase I`ve used in some marketing pieces and that is "someone noticed what was right with me today." The top one doesn`t excite me all that much. Kinda blah.But that second one...noticing what`s "right with me," THAT`s a jewel. In fact, it sums up the entire psychological end almost perfectly! You have to use that...somewhere in your overall branding. It`s perfect! :-D I dunno I think this is for me not a "clinical product" at least not on the site. I see it as a way to say to parents that here is a new way to encourage your children versus what the experts say. For me that evokes thoughts of we have a MAJOR problem and need our head`s shrunken. We already feel as parents we have the potential to screw up our children. Too much expert talk makes me either think that this is for "those people" that can`t handle their kids or reminds me that I am making a mess of them and need therapy and so will they sooner than later. The message has to balance the family needs message with not making parents feel like a failure for buying it. I do like the line but want to see thought into not being "too clinical" on the site as a whole.
I think the first line works or at least the sentiment of it. I think that as a parent I want the value communicated to me that I am making an investment in something that will continue to have value later and will not be a fad to them and will stop working for them soon. I can only expect a paper chart to last so long so I embrace the thought os having to switch to something else later. But this is almost like furniture so I want to know it will continue to be useful. Does that make sense? Netmom2007-8-5 16:28:27
