One of the things that I love the most about being an Internet marketer is that I have the ability to do what I want when I want. If I want to watch TV all day, I can. If I want to float around on a raft in my pool while all of the neighbors are at work, I can. And if I want to drink some beers before noon, I can.
So many IMers forget that they have this freedom. They spend mind numbing hours sitting in front of the computer writing, coding, creating graphics, and even learning new techniques. I often hear stories about how people forget to eat for almost a full day. Even worse is when people forget how to be people… yes, it happens quite often to IMers.
I’m not a big drinker, but today was the first cool day of the year. The smell of fall in the air made me think of football, which made me think of beer, which made me want to drink some, so I did.
After a few cold ones, I sat down in front of the computer and did a little forum surfing. I made some not so serious replies to some serious threads and I was amazed at how nobody was able to pick up on sarcasm or humor. It was like all of these IMers had forgotten how to lighten up. Perhaps they never knew. Who knows.
I decided to test out just how dead inside these people are. I started a thread asking for some advice on how to price my new product. Here is the post that I made…
I am trying to get a feel for what you would pay for something like this…
60 MINUTE POWERFUL VIDEO REVEALS NOTHING
Let me show you exactly what I did to create this incredible video. I have worked a total of 3,600 seconds creating a video that shows me creating this video.
What is in the video?
I will teach you mind-blowing techniques on how to stare at a webcam for one hour. You will be amazed at the powerful tactics that I use to produce this video.
These tactics include:
· Different facial expressions!
· I sometimes take my hat off and put it back on!
· About 30 minutes in, I walk away from the camera to go pee!
· How I swat a fly away, not once, but twice!
I don’t just tell you how to make a video like this…
I actually show you!
Here is an actual screen shot from the video that you will receive:
This video regularly sells for $99, but today, I will be sharing it with you for just $???
That’s the part that I am stuck on. I can’t come up with a good price. Any help would be appreciated.
I made this post wondering if people would realize that it was a joke. This was the first reply to the thread:
Is this serious?
I guess that answered that question.
As you can probably tell, I don’t have any real Internet marketing tips for you today, just a life tip… keep a sense of humor! You will never be successful if you don’t know how to have fun, no matter how much money you make online! Hey, even Einstein had a sense of humor!
