Hey Uncle D,
I'm going to try to sell myself to you
again for a shorter sales appearance at
the show: I am willing to do a 5-6 hour
sales stint of t-shirts at the show,
plus a high quality vid of an interview with
you, for $100. I can invoice you with taxes,
if you would like, as well.
I will cross link to your e-store and
give you a lot of positive PR.
My blog also has a large male following
(about 75% male). I'm at Telefilm conference
today about new media: a lot of television
producers here and a lot of chatter being
raised about my project. I say it's amazing
investment, with great ROI, plus
I kick ass at sales, including t-shirts.
Probably Saturday will be a peak day for
Let me know,
This was his response to my pitch:
Thanks for the offer to 'pay' for an interview Aimee but you may want to do a little research on who I am and the 'value' my appearance on your show would bring to your ratings and credibility. Not sure if that would be called fair for me 'paying' for that.
At any rate thanks for the 'offer' and good luck on your project.
This was my response to him:
My philosophy is that you never know where your traffic will come from. I'm a new media strategist so I offered what I thought was a potential opportunity to connect with a new market. My offers are not empty... and I mean that warmly.
Should you change your mind please feel free to send me an e-mail.
Take care and have fun at the show,
Moral of the story:
You can lead an ass to water, but you can't make it pay you a hundred bucks.
Good luck, Uncle D.
