Heads up! When somebody works for you, free or not, THANK them for it! It's just basic human politeness or don't Mommy's teach that here in the East? Why is this such a left-field concept for so many of you? ("friendly" Nova Scotians? MY ASS!!!)
If I promote your business for FREE, bring customers to your events and "spread the word" then maybe you'd come down off your high horse and show a little gratitude... even an acknowledgment would go a long way but NO!
I don't give a flying fuck what you think of me or my personality but you sure don't mind my tech savvy working for you at no charge, the extra customers you see, the fine-tuned promotion you're getting and all the other "resources" I provide to make your business successful.
An effective promotional campaign can work AGAINST you too. Maybe you should consider this when you blow me off, refuse to talk to me, remove me from invite lists, etc.
It's very arrogant to think this rude behavior will not become public knowledge and by "public," I truly mean PUBLIC. "Approachable"? I don't think so and that's why the word is no longer included in your online promo.
You know who you are, Fucktard! Just keep pushing and see what happens next.
