Ryan Gonzales  I've never personally blasted my friends list and beyond to ask people to go like my companies... I leave things like updates on my wall... And guess what... Turns out I'm doing just fine.

Half the battle in marketing is... Having a product people want. Soliciting people on such a massive scale is just a way to show people you really don't care. You're just looking for "numbers" which is not even a metric used to measure success...

There are multi-billion-dollar enterprises that have less likes than bullshit groups and pages on Facebook... What does that tell us about using Facebook Likes as an actionable metric upon which to make a business decision? Well. It tells us not to.

Johnny Smink  Yeah. I've been in bands for almost 18 years now. I've done everything flyering cars and passing out demo tapes to pushing MP3s and Facebook invites. Nothing works better than simply playing week after week and generating a buzz. Nobody wants to hear you talk about your band, but they'll listen when their friends tell them about your band.
