    Funny that I just saw this thread. Just yesterday, I gave away 10 free downloads of a new track that came out that I had written a short review on, and posted the new video.

    I didn't give them away on my blog...I gave them out to my Twitter followers. It was over and done with in about 20 minutes..(.may have been quicker if I hadn't done it on a Fri night).

    I do have a few promo copies of some new releases coming that I will probably do the same thing with.

    Will it help ? I don't know but I don't see anyone else doing it and it's kind of fun.

    I think on the next one, I'm going to announce it, bookmark it," Facebook" It, and "My Space" it, that I will be giving out copies of a particular album on Twitter at a certain time and see what kind of response I get.

    Let us know if it leads to more subscribers. It'll be interesting to see what response you get.

    Definitely do let us know what the results are. I've seen people giving away things on Twitter, but I've never heard what the results are of doing that. I'd be interested to know.

    Well....I have actually changed my outlook on getting twitter followers. Not looking for the big number anymore as much as i want to make sure that i am following everyone that has anything to do with, or is a fan of dance music, and I want them following me.

    I actually just went through my friends and followers and cut out everyone that wasn't following me back (It's been 2 weeks) unless they were a big name in the industry. What that mostly did was lighten my load of all the marketing and SEO guru's.

    So I'm not really looking for the big numbers, but I do want the "who's who" on my list...that is waaayyy more important.

    It's more of a "thanks for following" , than it is a "see what you get if you follow me?".

    Of course you can, and you will probably trip over it the same way I do...by mistake, but it's the journey that puts you in position to notice it when you do find those little things that you can apply to your marketing.

    It's always one thing, that leads to another, that leads to another....and before you know it you got 3 or 4 solid things going on, that you would have never thought of before, had you not taken the steps and .tried a few things out...and threw a few things up on the wall to see what sticks, (or has the potential to stick if you just change the recipe a little).
