Don’t take advantage of your customers.

Just because they love you doesn’t mean they won’t leave you if you start getting too pushy or obnoxious.

You can be unfollowed, un-friended, reported as spam or even blocked in half a blink.  Don’t take that chance.

Respect your friends/followers/readers time by listening and engaging.  Not. Just. Pushing.

The long-term value of taking your time and building the romance into your relationship with your community far outweighs any short-term impact you might see from flooding the stream with pushy sales messages.

Remember….it’s not all about you.  It’s about the community and the relationship.  Take some time to think about what you can add and what value you can create and you will receive back ten fold what you push out.
