“I’m going to show you a good and healthy way of getting fit and losing pounds,” etc etc
no intro, no conversation, no participation in the existing community, just two posts with external links. I’d expect people to have a bit of scepticism mate, lot’s of people here have been sold so many fads in the past, there’s always going to be a bit of healthy skeptisism on things like this.
But if your goal is to build an email list, this is the 1980’s way of doing it, consider adding value first before taking it.
if it’s not, why not make a thread here & share your progress in an existing community full of support & men on the same path?
If it’s support you’re after, it’s all here for you mate?
If it’s ‘list building’ you’re after, you really do need to re-consider your strategy mate
don’t get me wrong, I have an external blog (and some others here do) & sometimes share things, ALWAYS with the @ admins permission, but I’m just one of the guys & a part of this community, not trying to ‘tap into it’.
It’s always good to have your own blog where you can post about your own journey, just keep in mind the language you use when leaving links in place where people spend time, who’ve been lied to in the past, as there’s always going to be healthy, necessary scepticism, so people may mis-understand what you’re trying to do
Good luck on the journey
