    This reminds me of a certain promotional company.

    KMatthew,

    I just felt it was time to get these memes on KBoards. Then, whenever someone promises that they have some trade marketing secret for building a list of readers on the Internet, but that it's a secret, someone can just post one of these to the thread! It gets the message across a lot more simply than arguing, I figure. :)

    Easy.

    Pocket'd.

    Actually, I would use some of them in reviewing certain super-catchy-named ebooks about publishing:)

    I think the problem is that there are all these new sites that are trying to serve author's marketing needs.

    The truth is that the only ones that are going to flourish and be worth the money are the ones that are serving readers' needs really well. So it makes no sense when you read threads from these people who are trying to say that their methodology for getting readers and email lists is a trade secret.

    If a site's not great for readers, it's not going to be useful for writers to spend money marketing there.

    Considering some of the recent comments on another thread about a certain service, I thought it was worth re-upping this one.

     :D
