After reading a great article on J. A. Konrath‘s blog about marketing tools, I decided to create a MySpace profile over the weekend. I also tried out a friend-adding bot. I found a Forgotten Realms group and used the bot to send out about 200 “add as friend” requests to the group members, along with a short “hello” message. The demo time on the bot ran out before I got through the whole list, but I was able to contact about 60 people, and even got a response from one that they would check out Maiden. That’s a success in my book. The bot isn’t cheap, but I plan to purchase the retail version as soon as I scrape together the funds.
