103 people on social media read the PRESS RELEASE as I try to promote SUNSHINE SMILE DAY. Our local newspaper did not get back to me following the e-mail.
Blog figures since I started writing the page towards the end of 2016 are quite good.
Today is the 800th edition. Divide 91,118 by 800 and you get..... 113 and a bit as an average for the day.
Yesterday's page did not even attract an average readership. Oooopppppssssss !
Yesterday was my 134th show on crmk. I did not have a great audience and so far nobody has listened to the podcast !
857 podcast listeners divided by 134 = 6.4 - yesterday's podcast did not even attract one !
This week I am broadcasting a total of 22 hours on the radio. My normal five early morning show, I am covering DECADES at 6pm on Wednesday then doing a 10 hour show overnight Sunday to Monday.
I'll be live in an hour with today's show: www.crmk.co.uk. Once done it will be 4 hours down - 18 to go.
I am not going to promote today's show and I am not going to tag anyone into this blog page when it is published. Let's see what happens.
We are supporting some fantastic and wonderful good causes - FAR better than the commercial charities which enjoy zillions of supporters and cash so why am I struggling to engage people ? What am I doing wrong ?
Am I sad ?
No, not really.
Am I worried ?
YES BIG TIME !
SUNSHINE SMILE DAY is, of course, important to me on a personal level but more than that, what do we do if we can not get people to turn up and support the good causes we have invited to take part ? I am so looking forward to the music of SMILE DISCO but without lots of people there nobody will be dancing.
How do you get something to viral on social media ?
Can somebody tell me and I'll do it !
