I bought a high priced ebook from a famous AdSense guru, the guy that says he makes $30K a month from AdSense. I plowed thru the bloated manual of over 180 pages and the only wisdom was that you should make the AdSense ads look like they're part of your website, instead of looking like ads.
Of course, he couldn't charge the big price if he just came out and said that. Customers would complain that they were cheated if the ebook only had a few pages with really useful information, but at the seller's price!
A new wave of ebooks has recently emerged - short ebooks that have just what you need and nothing else just for filler. No fluff, no filler - just the info you're looking for without wading thru page after page of junk. Highly informative ebooks on current subjects for cheap prices - you can't go wrong.
How much? Do you like seven dollars?
Yes, however without the ads, I wouldn't know about the book, and without
the book, the ad wouldn't catch my eye in the first place. So as in the chicken
and egg situation, the egg wouldn't hatch without the chicken being there first.
So well, like maybe they're evil, but necessary. Morover sometimes the books are full of boring stuff - like maybe I'd get bored plouging through meaningless drivel, and make really heavy weather of it - and for what, might I ask ?. Some casual reading - sometimes informative, mind you. Ignoring it all completely, if deary, or if you're weary, is a workable option, mind - so you're actually empowered, nothing less.
Also they provide some welcome, sometimes fulsome distraction with splashes of color - these marketing people are arty types, and mostly creative, so in
the final anaysis the world is a better place for advertising.
I wonder, if anyone else, Bushy exempted, agrees.
