I'd like to get your opinion from many of you about google ads on the side when you're reading your gmail. In particular have any of you actually ever clicked on one, have you ever paid attention to them, etc...
Honestly, after watching the video, I went back to my gmail and took a look to see the ads because quite frankly, I had to think if I've ever even noticed an ad in my gmail before, lol. Maybe as a marketer I'm ad blind or something, but to be honest with you as silly as it may sound since google ads are in fact there, and I read my gmail every day usually several times a day, I myself never really took note of them.
My thinking, since this new product is based on gmail marketing, is if I never took note of the ads, is it just me or what. I mean I'm there to read email, I don't consider myself in a buying mode or even primed to buy when i'm reading email.
Ryan states high numbers and conversions, and I'm certainly no one to question or compare to a marketer of that level, and I'm not questioning him, but it just struck me funny that up til the time that he has pointed this out, those google ads never entered my mind let alone my attention.
Just wondering how it is for all of you. I find it interesting now, but at $97 for a marketing course on something I never even noticed for as long as I've been using gmail, I don't know that I'm THAT interested.
