I love FanBox! They have so many cool applications and features on their desktop! Their social network aspect rivals even MySpace and Facebook! I looked up the old stuff on SMS.ac, and who cares? It wasn’t even a big deal and they have since discontinued offering sms service. So stop crying and give the site a chance.
Here is a lesson for anyone out there who wants to seed your own information, company, article, etc. Honestly, we can learn a lot from the SPAMMERS of the world. Not about how we should do things but how we shouldn't. After all, you ask any business executive what they learned more from and they will tell you that they learned more from their mistakes than their successes. Let's learn from the mistake of TJ "I love Fanbox" Brown.
First, don't use the exclamation mark for the first three sentences of your seed. It's a little overboard.
Second, don't compare your features to the competition. That wreaks of advertising!
Third, don't shrug off past issues. And even worse... don't say that they are no longer doing it. "I looked up the old stuff on SMS.ac, and who cares? It wasn’t even a big deal and they have since discontinued offering sms service" sounds too much like an insider.
Fourth, don't sign off. No one else on the blog posted a sign off. That's not how things are done on the internet. Sorry, TJ :-(
Fifth (and this is the MOST important), don't make a call to action. Again, this is an advertising technique. "So stop crying and give the site a chance." is a call to action.
