Kristi – that’s so true. I wish I understood why internet marketers feel it benefits them? I know it’s a numbers game. But I hard a great explanation about cold calling that applies here as well:
If you call/spam 100 people and get one sale (1% return is pretty good these days), then you’ve made 99 people really angry disrupting their day and wasting their time. If they were interested, they would have been searching. So, now when they are interested, they won’t be looking for you.
Gerri – if you are moderating for approval, I think it’s a great idea. It will ultimately open up your blog to a new audience that probably didn’t even know you existed.
