The Best Marketing Strategy…EVER

The best marketing strategy anyone can ever come up with is to be a person.

Seriously. Just be a person.

Don’t be a *bot* that just sends out your book link with a little something thrown in for flavor now and again.


How can you do this? Well, one very very simple way is to list things about yourself.

Like So:






My name is AnnMarie

1. I am 26 years old and my birthday is in April.

2. I am one of six children. I have three brothers and two sisters. I am the second to youngest.

3. I have lived most of my life in Colorado except for an 18 month stretch I moved to Delaware to be closer to my sister.

4. My husband was one of my older brothers friends. Yeah, that was fun 😛 I also thought he was a huge jerk when I was younger. (I should have listened to my younger, smarter self!

5. I.Love.Music. I can’t clean without it blaring!

6. I grew up out in the country. It wasn’t really a farm, but we had rabbits, chickens, dogs and cats. We also had a HUGE garden, tons of trees, and lots and lots to mow. With a hand push lawnmower o.O

7. I’ve only pulled an *all-nighter* when I was hanging out with good friends. Never for something as serious as studying 😛

8. I don’t really drink soda, but can COMPLETELY taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke. I can’t stand Coke. I also love Mountain Dew. Mostly when I was younger though, as I can’t really stomach that much sugar anymore.

9. My ring finger “size” is a 3. Seriously. For those of you not savvy on ring sizes, it is probably smaller than your average 8 year old’s ring size.

10. I can wiggle my ears (without touching them…obviously).

11. I have been to Mexico, Germany, Italy, Prague, and France.

12. I am a complete “night owl” and do NOT enjoy mornings. At all.

13. I was a competitive Irish Dancer and a Figure Skater as a teen. Wasn’t awesome at either, but it was fun!

14. I love soccer. It is the only sport I will play or watch. My husband is a sports fanatic…except he doesn’t like soccer. Go figure! (He even watches GOLF!!)

15. I have never broken a bone.

16. Finding Nemo (the Disney movie) is awesome. It really is, you should watch it.

17. My favorite subject in school was English (especially reading/writing). I hate math. Or math hates me; one of them.

18. I learned how to drive a stick shift before I got my license.

19. I never really knew any of my grandparents. One of them even died before I was born.

20. I have four girls. Three biological and one adopted step-daughter.

21. I have two cats.

22. I am a Google fanatic and research EVERYTHING.

23. When I was younger I loved to climb trees and dig holes that were turned into “club-houses”.

24. I have blue eyes and blond hair. I dye my hair blond because it has gotten darker as I have gotten older. (Hey, I have to warn the world I’m coming!)

25. I can’t sleep unless I am on my side with a pillow between my legs.

Connect with me:


See what I mean? Now you *know* me. The next time I send a tweet or post to FaceBook I’m going to be the crazy blond who only sleeps on her side.

I’ll stand out!

THAT my friends is the goal.
