So at the moment the Mentalism Facebook Page is at 284 members, which isn’t too bad I suppose, but not enough to sell anything. It is steadily growing, so I guess that’s something. I got a Twitter private message (or whatever they are called on Twitter) from Bill Crosby, giving me some tips on it, and he basically showed me a video (and a mailing list) which shows how to milk Facebook with minimal effort. To tell you the truth it didn’t tell me much that I didn’t already know for a 30 minute video, but it pointed me in the right sort of direction which is a good thing, and it told me what not to do. Basically what I got from it is that smaller fan pages with a more targeted audience is better than larger fan pages with a less targeted audience. It also gave some tips on engaging with your audience, but as a fan page which teaches people tricks to try on their friends, I think I’ve got that nailed down for the moment.
Anyway, I’ve got an idea for a new fan page which I’m starting while writing this, which will sort of act as a place for me to invite people to Lockerz. I will call it “Getting stuff for free“. Now everybody wants free stuff, so I think thousands will join it, and after a few posts explaining what Lockerz is, some people will be shouting “Scam” but some people will be begging for an invite! This will leave me with loads of PTZ, and hopefully enough to prove Lockerz works. Anyway, onto Lockerz in general.
I’ve got one little problem about Lockerz: if you remember in my last post I talked about how the display was apparently not working. Well it seems it’s more of a PTZ glitch than a display glitch because at the moment it says I’ve got 6 PTZ. I got 2 for inviting my little brother yesterday, (which showed up on the display, after the 10 PTZ I got previously that didn’t, and still haven’t showed up) and then 4 PTZ today (2 for signing in, 2 for completing a daily), but it’s still only saying I’ve got 6 PTZ overall. I’m hoping they fix this soon.
Another concern I have is that people have been saying stock will be restored on the 15th, but they also say that it usually runs out in seconds/minutes depending on how popular it is. So the first hurdle is getting the PTZ for that product you want, the second hurdle is being online when they restock, and the third may well be having the faster internet connection. I’m not quite sure what time they restock, hopefully they’ll update the news sometime telling me, but if not, I’ll be refreshing rigorously at midnight on Wednesday night.
Oh one more thing regarding Lockerz, you can’t redeem NTSC items (so all electrical items) if you live outside the US, so to cover this they’ll be giving amazon gift cards worth roughly the same. That sucks a bit, but at least they provided an alternative.
That’s all for now, if you would like an invite to Lockerz to experiment with me, comment below with your e-mail address.
