Wrist Locks Tweets

Are you on Twitter? What kinds of topics do you follow?

Or do you only follow people?

As you know, I have been Tweeting as of late … but I have NOT been using Twitter to market what I sell. Are you interested in knowing my results?

First, let’s talk about a fellow wrist locker:  I thought another wrist-locks expert was in complete juxtaposition with my “no-promotion-on-twitter” point of view. Whereas I have not sent people directly to sell pages, and preferred to educate with wrist-locks articles, I thought this master was pushing his wrist-locks DVDs on a DAILY basis.

Who is this mystery martial artist?

Alain Burrese.

But guess what! He isn’t pitching his video daily at all. Let me explain …

Every day, I saw a Tweet pointing to Alain Burrese’s DVD, Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 1: Wrist Locks.

Well, recently, I had my birthday, and surprise of surprises … Alain emailed me with birthday wishes. So, I asked him if his Twitter.com efforts were successful.

His response?

He had no idea what I was talking about. It must be an Amazon affiliate promoting his product.

It’s a good thing he’s in the dark, because I can’t imagine that that the affiliate’s selling a lot from that link.

So, why am “I” tweeting?

I’d like to make it easier for you to find information. So far, I have been using Twitter for the following:

• To help you find martial arts information
• To retweet interesting tidbits. Call it life-enrichment.
• Actual communication
• Updates about what’s going on with me … NOT what I am having for breakfast, but rather new book, site, and video projects.

So far, have my efforts been successful?

It really is too early to tell, but I am enjoying the process.

A few people have clicked over to my articles on wrist locks and practical martial arts; in that sense, I am happy to be able to help.

Now, the question is … should I Tweet a link to THIS wrist locks article? ;-)
