On Giving Away Free Stuff…

I don’t know about you, but every time I buy a table to an event or buy tickets to a golf outing, I always feel like it’s nearly impossible to get people to join me.  Is it me?  Or is it that there are way to many events and outings?

There have been times, when I fill up a table for an event and then the day before, someone drops out.  At that point, I find myself going crazy trying to get someone to go with me.

The other day, I had an extra ticket to a golf outing.  Kristie Galvani, HJMT’s Senior VP, was unable to make the outing and I started to call up and email everyone I knew to try to get them to join me.  I had no luck.  So, I decided to post it up on Facebook and Twitter.  And you know what?  No one answered me on Twitter and two people answered me on Facebook but were also unable to attend.

Sometimes, I even feel that way when I run a small contest to give away something from my office.  And still, hardly anyone responds.

What do you think is going on here?  Do people know longer want freebies?  (I for one LOVE freebies — Free it’s for me!) Is it that there are way too many distractions?  What do you think?
