I just had a conversation with a fellow “freebie” maker and this was what she said “I went to sit down to make another freebie and thought, why should I bother spending my time on that when rarely anyone even says thank you?! So you know what? I didn’t.”
I used to be a mostly non-commenter till I started making freebies myself and realize that a positive comment is what MAKES you want to keep making things for free for others. Now I’m trying to change my ways & when I download something I give a comment.
For myself, the few things I’ve made so far (the ones actually made by me, I’m not talking about the collections of freebies I post about) have been downloaded hundreds of times & I myself have 3 thank you’s to show for it. I can see what she is getting at.
A freebie can take 10-60 minutes, a comment can take 5-10 seconds. Even if it’s a pain in the butt we can see from the comment above that doing so is what is ensuring that we keep getting freebies.
The more you know.
