I often talk about using your IM skills in the offline world… maybe doing some web design for people or helping with their marketing campaigns, etc. as a way of diversifying your business in the current climate.
Well, today I was browsing around Google and checking out the competition… a good starting point, right?
Anyway I typed in this keyword phrase into Google:-
‘internet marketing middlesbrough’
And several things popped up but this ad jumped out at me:-
This ad was on the first page of Google
Mmmmm….interesting. This takes you here (Gumtree.com):-
That's Me! That's YOU as well!! - £75k / Annum - Nice work if you can get it, right?
But it leads you here…
Errr... a Diet Supplement Site...
WTF!!?? AND yes, it’s got an affiliate program!
Not, exactly a JOB then!
Not only is this unethical IMO but it’s also against the TOS of Gumtree. Naughty then… but real sneaky, right?
PS. I also checked ‘internet marketing newcastle’ , ‘internet marketing leeds’ , etc. Same deal.
