Marketing

I have not spent any time marketing Blot to potential customers. I announced the launch of Blot to the public on a forum for programmers. The initial customers which I recieved from that forum post then spread the product by word-of-mouth. However, I do think that marketing is important. I plan to direct more of my efforts to marketing in future, once I am more satisfied with the quality of the service itself. For now at least, Blot’s growth by word-of-mouth is sufficient.

Advertising

I have not ever advertised Blot. There are relatively benign forms of advertising, like the bulletin board at your grocer’s. However, I think the world would look better without advertising. Less ugly, much calmer. So I won’t advertise.

Social Media

Blot does not have a presence on any of the social media platforms.

Discounts and promotions

I do not offer discounts on Blot. I know that it makes business sense for me to run sales and offer promotions. However, offering a temporary discount seem unfair to customers who had paid full price. The price now is the lowest price it will ever be, and everybody who uses Blot pays it.

Trial accounts

I also do not give out accounts for free to anyone, out of respect to my customers.
