I need help with shameless self promotion

  1. Shadesbreath profile image84
    Shadesbreathposted 7 years ago

    So I started a page on Facebook and I thought I would be able to send out a thrilling announcement with the url to the people in my fan/follower base (I went to a lot of trouble figuring out how to get the neat and tidy facebook.com/shadesbreath thingy URL that doesn't have all the numbers and "/this" and "/that" stuff on it--trust me, that was like learning advanced brain surgery for me). And now my plan for being a total slimeball and sending out an announcement is failing. 

    I swear I saw a button for that somewhere on our profiles, but I can't find it anywhere. Didn't there used to be a "tell your friends" thing?  What am I missing?

              I don't have ninja skills, so I'm trying blunt force with humor padding the gratuitousness of it.  Kinda curious to see how it works out in the next day or two with this post, a hub and the help of people like you.  The world is sure different than it was only a decade back.

                You can certainly say that again. lol lol But, good luck with your page. Just remember, don't lose your sense of humor. tongue

    You've got me.  I have a page on FB myself for my Etsy shop...and FB makes it doggoned hard to even FIND your own page again!

    I usually have to go through ALL my 'notes' and 'boxes' and it turns up at near the tail-end of over 200 posts of various types, not all relevant to my 'page.'

    I finally got smart and saved it in a folder unto itself in my favorites on IE.  However, I rarely use it or visit, so in the end I wasted my time.  LOL

    I recommend that everybody goes and becomes a fan of shadesbreath at
    http://www.facebook.com/Shadesbreath

    (and now, by the magic of a testimonial for a third  party, this post is not self promotional any more :-)


    regards,
    Eric G.

        Eric Graudinsposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, http://Facebook.com/shadesbreath  is the page I'm taking about, in case there is any confusion.

    I sent it to about 30 people on my Facebook friends list, and 90% of them are Hubbers.

    If you're on my friends list, then you might have an invitation waiting for you to join Shadesbreath's page. smile

    It's on each hub at the top next to tweet @@ is that what your looking for? Just be logged into fb and click share on the hub you want to share

    1. Shadesbreath profile image84
      Shadesbreathposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      THAT might be what I am after.  So, if I do that, I spam everyone who was nice enough to click "follow" or "fan" or whatever?

      (I will need to go shower right afterwards... but I'm willing to do it this once.)

        Hey Shades, you can share your hubs on your facebook wall anytime you choose and it's not spam. It's your wall. wink

        1. Shadesbreath profile image84
          Shadesbreathposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Right, I probably will, at least for ones I like.  But for that to help spread the joy of my awesomeness and stuff, I need people to have liked it.  LOL.  I think I'll have to try the share a hub strategy and just write a shamelessly self promoting hub touting the benefits of ME and gratuitously pointing at the Shadesbreath bridal suite of Facebook like the whore I have become. (sigh).  How'd you get all those people on yours? lol

    Just share it on your wall, as your status update.  If you copy and paste the url it will give a picture link.

  8. Cagsil profile image80

    I just shared it on FB, so even if they are not Hubbers, they'll get it. lol

      I can see him slinking around in his ninja suit, silently appearing on FB pages, doing mischief, and then vanishing silently into the sea of masking faces.

    In sent a personal invitation to all non-hubbing friends that were on my list of "cool" people to like your page.  Hope that helps!
