Whether They Love You Or Hate You…
It Really Doesn’t Matter

16 comments

You may know this band to the left (it’s Nickelback for the uninitiated).

If you do know them, you probably feel one of two things…you either love them or you loathe them.

It’s really not likely that you have any feelings in between.

I happen to be in the “loathe them” camp and often marvel at the success they’ve managed to achieve have despite their horrible music. Yes fans, I said it. Sorry, I hope we can still be friends. ;-)

Despite my opinion and a lot of other public criticism, they’ve been nominated for and won many awards and have sold a ton of records (2007 stats). In short, they have a lot of people talking about them and plenty of rabid fans buying their records.

So if someone doesn’t like you, does it really matter (as long as you’re not actually hurting anyone)? As long as they’re talking and your fans keep coming back for more, keep it going.

    As long as I don’t tick off my fans, then I think it’s all good. There will always be people that don’t like me and I have to work at not concentrating on them.

    I love nickelback btw. Their stuff that DOESN’T make it on the radio is much better ;)

      Yeah, yeah Val. That’s what they all say. The good music is hidden away somewhere. :-)

        Well the good stuff is too dirty for radio :) I’m definitely not saying they are music icons by any means, but super fun lol

          Well, they could just edit it most of it out like they do for Eminem songs. LOL, maybe not. I don’t know why they put those on the radio when there are pretty much no lyrics left!

    Good point ~ Alice and Val. I’ve never looked at it that way before. It must be very freeing. I worry things to death…sheesh, it’s really a wonder how I still have hair. I’ll have to remember that.

      Oh Amanda. Yeah, let go. I’m sure everyone (well those with consciences) has a sense of apprehension now and then…but overall, just work to keep your core audience happy. That’s what matters.

        LOL, Alice! My husband says that a lot ~ just let go… one day I’ll get there. It’s a work in progress! ;)

    Very smart post and nice segue from a few tweets on the subject, Alic. ;-) And thanks to Nickelback (and you), I just learned something about transforming a topic seemingly unrelated to business into some quite relevant to business. Coolio :)

      Go Nickelback! :-)
