What Would You Do? A Case of Rude Behavior Online-
Thanks so much for the offer to review it!
At this point, all bloggers are purchasing their own copies. If you
like it, you are MOST welcome to review it.
SIDE NOTE: At this point, I had already chosen multiple bloggers to send review copies too, and the book has sold thousands of copies in two weeks. All in all-I’m pretty satisfied! Any more reviews that were going out were from bloggers who purchased the book and enjoyed it enough to share with their readers. This was a blogger from a marketing firm, so I had no problem suggesting they grab a copy. (All journalists looking to review the book can grab a free copy. So can all non-profits (no review necessary).They responded (retaliated?)
Standard PR practice includes providing review copies.
Our site is a solid PR 4 site focused. A backlink from us is worth about four times the price of your book.
This was a bit of a test actually. To see if you are as savvy as you say you are.
No worries. Maybe with some experience you’ll improve.
Now, I have to wonder! Does the fox think the grapes are sour, or was I remiss?
I decided to share this story with you guys, because I think there are multiple lessons to be learned here. I have not responded to “Andy” – but I am curious as to what you think I should do…or have done?
