Thomas Black:
Charlene: What is your twitter name I'll follow you.  I've followed most Logos Users I can find.

Hi Thomas,

The ONLY reason I am using Twitter is to "find out" stuff from Logos!Smile

But I did just start "following" you. It's DuCaleb

Speaking of Twitter, I am Broadus55 there if anyone is interested. I have hardly done anything with it but started following Dan P. to get in on this announcement. And it was worth the bit of trouble. Smile

Ok. It looks like the only way to get this is to ask for an email.

 

Could someone please email me at fred DOT greco AT cckpca.org ?

I think having two classes of customer/users (those in the know and those that are not) presents its own ethical questions. I have been with Logos for nearly 20 years and I love the company but this marketing practice is particularly distastful to me. Being transparent is good when appropriate, it engenders trust and confidence but when I hear that some are getting deals while others are left out simply because they do not have Twitter accounts does leave one to ponder a bit. This may not be true but there has been no clairification at all. I can only continue to hope and believe that company treats all its customers as fairly as they can.

Relax.  Neither you nor anyone else will be left out simply because you don't have a Twitter account (of course, you could always create one).  All you need to do is to check the prepub page and subscribe when the offer is posted so you can get in line for the download (very sizeable so it must be scheduled).  The only thing you miss out on is knowing what it is ahead of time -- unless you can get some kind soul who does know to tell you.

 We are only talking about some early release of information on an upcoming resource.  Many companies don't release this information at all. It seems to me if Logos wants to develop a marketing channel, to incentivize people to use the channel by offering something small for free is a tactic companies have used for a very long time.  Logos wants to get more customers using Twitter.  So why is this a bad thing, to incentivize people to use it? I signed up and I had not before, curiosity got the better of me.

If you don't want to sign up for a Twitter account, you can either wait under a week to find out, or ask someone to email you as many have done.  That's really not such a hardship....

Nobody is getting a deal here.  

This is all about marketing buzz and it is being executed masterfully.  I majored in marketing (advertising is only a small portion of marketing) prior to moving into ministry, and I'm actually impressed with the way Dan is very good at creating Buzz - as I noted earlier.  If he announced something and left it at that, people would be buzzing.  But he announced something and created the ILLUSION of exclusivity and the posts in this thread keep racking up.

I know I hear people (not specifically you Scot) whine about targeted marketing from time to time and I just don't get it.  It's not a moral issue.  There are no unequal weights and measures here.  Maybe it's because Marketing is my former field of study.  Maybe I'm blind to the patently obvious, but I just don't get it.

To clarify: all someone with twitter is getting is a glimpse at what the FREE deal for EVERYONE is going to be.  As soon as it's put on the blog - the secret won't be one any more and everyone will have a chance to get in line to receive the free resources if they're interested.

 

EDIT: wow, George and Dominick both responded while I was composing my answer.  I'm going to have to learn to type faster.  :-)

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Thank you George, Domminck & Thomas for your replies. The marketing aspect and the Twitter angle are not lost on me. But to your point Thomas, the illusion of exclusivity certainly worked on me and as you can see I didn't feel very good about it.

I am rather amazed at how many posts in this thread are wanting to circumvent the easy conditions set by Dan. Like Naaman's servant I ask, "“My friends, had the VP of Marketing told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Get Twitter & tweet me to be in the know?' "   2 Kings 5:13

Ok, I am lost (likely because this thread is 8 pages long). I have a Twitter account. Show me what I am supposed to do, and I will do it.

Oh, you once were lost, but now you're found.  Just tweet DanPritchett and ask him.  He will respond.
