One Item a Day— a New Marketing Strategy
Following in the ideas behind woot.com* and other one sale a day sites, I’m going to advertise one item a day, using twitter to schedule 3 or 4 tweets a day. Why? We’re all busy folks. We might be curious and click on one link, but if we see a whole page of links, we often won’t bother because of the time involved. Note I say “we”— I do this, too. So rather than send you to a page where you have a lot of choices, I’m going to pick one product/design a day.
Here’s a preview of my tweet for tomorrow:

A note: just because I’m scheduling these tweets ahead of time doesn’t mean I’m a robot. Just a real person with real products that people like, and trying to reach out and let people know while still having a life, both online and off.
*Woot.com is an online store and community that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap. … We sell one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central time when it is replaced.
