I have a debate I want to open up with you. Okay I'm a good girl, right? As far as you know anyway LOL.
But I grew up golfing. With retired military men. I shoot the shit. I cuss. I laugh at crude jokes. I TELL crude jokes.
So in my info products, I sometimes use phrases like "kissing ass" or for example, I use an example of an adult website URL but in a funny way (not real).
I got scolded by a great customer today for that - and so I refunded her, sent her a clean version I created quickly, and apologized and then put the clean version in the with crude version with a READ ME FIRST note so they'll know which one to choose based on their preferences.
I want to know:
1.) Should I do away with ME and tone everything down?
2.) Should I keep being ME - and give them the option of reading a G rated Tiff product?
3.) Or should I say "tough" and be ME no matter what?
I know I won't do #3 - I personally like the second option but I wonder, could THAT even hurt me?
I know that many of my customers are Christians. I am a Christian too - but I'm not perfect. I do cuss, etc. I don't get offended very easily and in fact PERSONALLY I like reading info products, blogs, etc where people are laid back and themselves - crude or not.
What say YOU, Warriors?
I respect your $0.02
