So, I reached 10,000 followers on Facebook a few days ago.
First of all, huge thank you! I’m beyond stoked with how many people are reacting to this project, it’s really heart warming.
Secondly, I’d tried a few things in the past in returns for likes, for example, I’ve tried saying things like ‘Hey, share this status and get people to like this page and when I reach ‘x’ arbitrary number, I’ll release a free tune etc’ or something like that. A lot of artists do this kind of thing, it’s not abnormal, however, I noticed every time I did this that my page would go down in likes (only by around 3-5 likes).
So, rather than telling anyone I’d do anything for 10,000 likes, I ran a secret competition, where the 10,000th like on http://www.facebook.com/mrbillartist gained free, 32 bit, Hardcore Ableonteer status FOR LIFE!
Congratulations to Noga Che CircoLand for being the 10,000th person to like my page and win this awesome prize!
You may be reading this thinking “Yeah, yeah.. come on, Bill. Get to the damn point.”. So, here it is.
I wanted to make this post in particular to mention that I’ll be running secret competitions randomly from now on without telling anyone about it. Basically, it’ll always be based on something to do with interaction via social media. So for instance, you may be the 100th person to comment on a new tune on SoundCloud, or you may be the next person to tweet a specific word or number I’m thinking to me (that one could go on for a few years, hehe), etc.
The fun is, you won’t know when it will be, or even what it will be. So one day you may just be interacting with me on social media, and bam, you’ll get a prize!
I thought this was a fun idea, so I’ll continue doing it.
