A Gift to One of Our First 1,000 Fans

Last week SHIFT’s Facebook Fanpage achieved a nice milestone – 1,000 fans!  Compare that to most other PR agencies, and it looks like a pretty solid achievement.  THANK YOU for your kindness.  We want to return the favor.

On April 1 — no foolin’ — we’re going to raffle off a cool prize to one of those folks who count as one of SHIFT’s early believers.  (Actually, it’s a really, really cool prize.  I want one.)

Curious?  Check it out…

Wonder what we’ll have to do when we hit the 2,000 mark?!

    1. Counterpoint.
    I am a fan and a friend, however I choose to ignore twitter, facebook, etc. as being any measure of validity, unless quantity is its own reward.

    2. Anchor
    You may be my favorite social media guy, but I like to think that by taking a contrarian position, your balloon does not rise to the point where it may burst. If that is negative feedback, we have a semantics problem and not a personal issue. I could be that I am just an a**hole:)

    However it shakes out, let me suggest a prize for the next milestone you choose to celebrate.

    The winner gets a ‘Social Media Makeover’.
    Just like it sounds. Like Extreme Home Makeover or Social Idol.
    Take the winner and make them into a star for a day or week, Individual, business, competitor.

    Use your entire bag of tools and make them a star. It will make someone very happy, validate your approach to Social Media and PR and will probably net you some business.

    Do ya really think that ‘contestants’ are the best friends?

    • Todd Defren says:

      There’s a difference between fans and friends. The folks who decide to be “fans” do so for many reasons: would-be employees, competitors, true friends (of the variety you point to), etc. In joining our “fan club” we feel a responsibility to provide a little value, a little fun, some good info, etc.

      What do you call someone who only ever has negative feedback?
