In NY Times Square.
Some guy talking about his foot fetish. Quite an interesting way to look at things…
Anonymous said: Can you please change whoever is providing you with ads? I shouldn't have to read bullshit as sexist and blatantly racist as the shit at the bottom of your blog. China love, Asian lovers, chnlov, shit like this, I shouldn't have to read this fucking bullshit. I hope you fucking die, you disgusting perverted shitlord. I can't believe I have to expose myself to this bullshit that you obviously fucking love and enjoy so much, just so you can make some fucking money. Fuck you shitlord I hope you die
The ads are based off your search history and online behaviour
F yeah! Internet marketers!!!!
I’ve been working on internet marketing for the past few months. Today, after a Skype session with a Latvian, Argentinian, and a Singaporean, it just totally hit me how crazy the internet changed the world.
It got 5 random dudes from around the world talking about Click Through Rates, mobile campaigns, Banner Ads, and the Online Adult industry. What the hell are we even doing?
It’s debatable, but I for one believe that we are the true innovators. Far too few people realize that the internet has been built on the premise of advertising. Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. The whole tech boom has been a direct result of guys who wanted to find more people to buy their shit. And I don’t blame them. Finding customers is tough. And when you are competing against the big boys with the big budgets, you gotta innovate and think outside the box.
Before I started internet marketing, I always had an Adblock on my browser. Once I removed it for research purposes, I’m over analyzing every single ad because I know, there is some guy out there who literally tested out 50 hot girls in the Ad to determine which one brought the best conversions.
The adult industry is so dirty yet fascinating. A large portion of the marketing advancements have come through them. You know the little screen that appears when you try to look ahead in a Youtube video? Well the porn industry has had that for years before Youtube caught on.
Thankfully, I don’t do adult or dating ads. That would be too much. Instead I’m thinking about all the angles for random stuff like apps, games, promotions, etc. It drove me crazy once I realized how much thought a marketer put into a product. And that’s how I have a slightly better appreciation for Don Draper in Mad Men.
Don’t look to the people who came before you and say “Oh my god I can’t do this it’s been done before”. Yeah, shit’s been done before, but it wasn’t done by you.
Currently traveling in Vietnam.
Making the ~ 2000 km journey from Hanoi to Saigon via motorcycle along the Ho Chi Minh highway. (at Hai Van Pass)
This past month I’ve been traveling around. My brother and I did the Yunnan backpacker circuit and made it all the way up to the Tibet/Yunnan border. Kunming => DaLi -> Lijiang -> Shangri-La.
Then I made it to Hanoi, Vietnam. I really love Hanoi and the craziness of Vietnam. Got distracted with some local girls and ended up staying a whole week in Hanoi.
During that time I bought a shitty motorcycle that wouldn’t be street legal in the US, learned to ride a motorcycle in the crowded streets of Hanoi, and am now in some small village in north-central Vietnam. Progress is slow as I try to make it down to Saigon.
My bike breaks down every day. Weather is either monsoon level rain or intense heat. I’m sick of Pho. Seriously hoping I have enough good karma to bring me to Saigon in one piece.
I don’t know how Che did his motorcycle journey around South America, but in Vietnam, the only Che here is a dessert.
