I was wondering how long it would take to get a post like yours. I'm amazed it took a whopping 12 hours (more or less).
Are you, why?
Lou Serrano wrote:I didn't realize posting topics regarding marketing on a marketing forum is considered SPAM. We must have different interpretations of the term "SPAM".
Yes, mine (and the dictionary's) is when you post something unsolicited and commercial in an area where no one cares about it.

Whatever, it is a trivial amount. If you can't make that back then whatever you're doing you are simply wasting your time.
Lou Serrano wrote:You may be surprised, but the amount of money I make from making posts here on the Genii forums is almost negligible.
Not at all surprised. Just wonder why you bother.
But, how do you know if you don't measure it?
Lou Serrano wrote: It would be a waste of my time to try to measure it.
Most marketing professionals nowadays say measurement is the underlying key without which there is no point even doing the marketing.
How do you know what works and what doesn't?
Do you measure your success with youtube and twitter? Is it just here you ignore?

Ah, you see, what you should do is measure results. Who cares about effort?
Something works or it doesn't. Black and white. And really easy to measure in these online days.
If the posts do not produce results, why do you insist on boring us all with them?
Clearly you want RK's audience, but you are just too tight to pay for it. That's a little sad.

But you don't know if they work, so you just spam instead, even though you know it doesn't deliver anything. Odd.
I'd have thought spending your time doing things that made you more money would be better.

Hilarious. You don't care about measurement. You don't care about SEO.
Is it just
spam you care about?
Bless you. Funny little chap.
I'm off for a gig now for the weekend. So sadly I won't be able to respond to your know doubt awesome reply to this.
Have fun spamming. I'm off to do some magic.
