So today a good friend of mine Kenneth Locatelli was chatting with me on skype. And he directed me to a certain Site Of The Day site on a certain Traffic Exchange that I LOVE using. So I go and start reading the comments, and holy crap what do I see?
I see a certain someone calling people (which I take personal offense to) and I quote “Hobby Marketers”. But that’s not the icing on the cake. It’s what he said overall. So I decided that I’ll post it here for you to see. (Edited so that you can’t tell what TE or person):
“This may be my last Site Of The Day on **TE NAME**. **TE NAME** used to be a good place to go to advertise. It is not that good anymore. It is funny how many people click for credits and then the splash page they add gets ZERO opt ins. It is getting to be a waste of time here.”
“I have made some good friends here.. but I am getting disgusted by the hobby marketers that call **PROGRAM NAME** a SPAM tool. I have built HUGE downlines in many programs using **CHAT PROGRAM** and **PROGRAM NAME** helps with my list management and broadcasting.”
“but the ones that call **PROGRAM NAME** a spam tool have either never used it, dont understand it, are saying what someone else said, or have a small **CHAT PROGRAM** list.”
I’ll start with the first comment, basically you are going to stop using a TE because other members aren’t getting results? You must not be a member of many TE’s because I know and see a bunch of people using TE’s and not getting results. But that is mostly because they are doing it wrong, by using generic affiliate pages and not standing out from the crowd. So instead of complaining about it, why wouldn’t you actually do something since you seem to be having some success, and try helping people out. Maybe they aren’t getting results because they don’t know or understand what they are doing wrong. And last but not least, I didn’t realize that you were able to track other people’s opt-in’s. CRAZY…
Second comment. First of all I take offense to being called a hobby marketer, I just like thousands of other people online are trying to learn how to actually make some money in this business. And you my friend, well just understand that I will never buy anything that you put your name on because of that comment. I may be doing this “Part Time” now, but that’s probably because I still have a mortgage to pay and a child to feed. And I have yet to earn enough to live off of this alone. (That and I am working under contract). And why do you think people would call your tool a SPAM tool? Probably because the day your product launched I got messages from a ton of my **CHAT PROGRAM** contacts, that haven’t talked to me either ever or in a really long time, continously throwing links at me to join their “New Program”.
Third comment. You are right, I have never used your **PROGRAM NAME**. And that is probably because I have seen what it can and IS doing to me and alot of people that I know. So how about instead of complaining about the people that refuse to buy your crap, WHY NOT TEACH THE CURRENT USERS HOW TO USE IT CORRECTLY!!!!!!!!!!
OK, rant complete. I can’t wait to see your comments…
