I wrote last week about Plugging other Developers and how I think it’s an awesome way to market your services. No it’s not as fast but it builds long term fans.
Even better is that you can really make someone’s day when you say something good about them. By plugging someone else’s services I have the power to turn a crappy week in to an awesome week.
I’ve had a bit of a rough week. Nothing in particular has been going wrong. My clients are happy and have paid me on time. It’s just felt like a total run around and I don’t like just running around.
That totally made my tiring day awesome. It’s 3 hours later and I’m still happy to have read that.
With 1 paragraph. With 2 sentences in an email. With 140 character tweet. With a card.
Any of those items can turn a bad day for someone else in to something that is purely awesome.
I hope you use your power at least weekly, daily is even better.
