Have you watch those ‘As seen on TV’ ads? The kind where they can sell you a piece of miserable looking shit and pass it on as something that you ‘simply must not miss this chance, only for today, buy one get three free, lifetime guarantee, do not wait any longer because we have limited stocks, call the number on your TV screen now yadda yadda yadda’.
I really admire how creative the Americans are in the marketing field. They really have a way to pull you into something ever so subtlety. If you have watched ‘Wag the dog’, you will know what spin doctors are. Something our local politicians lack.
So, the other day, there was this hoo-haa over ‘Death of Adsense’ and then, no sooner than you can say die, another person came up with Adsense is Alive. Being the sucker that I am, I signed up the newsletter just to find out what’s in store. But I smelled something fishy because they asked for my Paypal email. I dropped the thing like a couple of unwashed spenders (male underwears lah).
Now, this bugger is selling some templates that will make you very, very
leech rich. Cost USD197 wor. Chisin meh…..I can optimise my websites free of charge. Ptuuiiilah, think want to earn auntie’s money so easy meh?
Anyway, back to the topic, I just want to rant that there are so many scams and get-rich-quick things out there. So, be careful folks. Don’t blog because you want to get rich quick. Blog because you have something good to share, do it sincerely and you will be richly blessed. I just realised that my parenting website MyMomsBest, my first ever paid domain is three years on October 10th. I bought that domain and hosting for RM200 (share with another person) from Intergricity with my own pocket money. It has so far served it purposes. And my adventure as a blogger is going touch two years on October 23rd!
Peeps – If you haven’t link me, please, please, please, please, please link me! I am desperate because I want to see how far I have gone since the day I started blogging.
Now, Americans are creative in marketing. Japanese are innovative. Malaysians leh?
