Audible joins the Armitage multi-verse. I guess.

OK, honestly, Audible, if you find the answers to your own marketing too boring, why don’t you come up with a new approach? Cynical potshots at Armitage’s most loyal fans are really not necessary. Or is this a new spring tradition?

  1. Yup. Lame. I mean, even RA himself has made such “who would it be… and why is it me” jokes. However, they got plenty of engagement…

    • Honestly, this felt like a question that I often write when I’m grading an answer that was clearly an attempts to disguise the student’s lack of knowledge. But yeah. Engagement.

    • No doubt.

      This was a question formulated because most of their respondents say “Richard Armitage” in response to the original question (who would you want to be stranded with). It’s actually a sign that they are losing engagement among people who would say something other than “Richard Armitage.”

  3. Am I the only one who hears sarcasm in RA’s response?

    • I don’t care that much about his response, although it’s customary to include some kind of sign that one is being ironic (emoji or j/k). As the title of the post indicates, I am focused on Audible’s lousy marketing.

  4. I presume they are channelling the recent RA/ Harlan Coben Q&A when RA asked a question in a similar way. Someone at Audible seems to like poking a stick in a hornet’s nest and it’s weird. It’s not as though his audiobooks need much pushing in the fandom.

    • aha. I listened to that only once (and thought it was stupid, as I recall). Honestly, this is just another reminder to stay off Twitter completely. I assume they do this because the fandom sold out to them, but it’s a big factor in why Twitter is no fun for me.

  5. My only question for them would be: ‘Will you ever learn?’ and my answer is: ‘Nope, I don’t think so!’ sigh
