I`m interested in an apparent correlation between missing calls to
action on Web sites, and the same problem in various types of forum
It seems to me that the number one rule for an entrepreneur should be
to always engage the interest of the open market (potential customers).
As such, if someone posts about a book that`s super-dooper fantastic,
why wouldn`t there be an included sales pitch?
I`ll look at the book, that`s not an issue...it`s interesting only
because it`s been posted here. But beyond that, it just intrigues me
that so many people make recommendations on a forum, but forget to make
a pitch of some kind. Is that useful information?
I wonder if maybe it`s only a generic problem with MLM and Network
marketing people? This book is just another one of those, to the point
where anyone who posts such a hyperbolic topic increasingly seems to be
in that category. :-)
Richard (Keycon) came up with an excellent rule of thumb. When you get
a "this is a fantastic product" post, check the member profile and see
they`ve just joined, have no content, and no Web site, typically
they`re just trying to hype some sort of get-rich-quick scheme. I`ve
been testing that for a few months now, and have to say, it`s pretty
accurate....as a general rule.
