Firm solicits Idiots to Write an Ebook on Internet Marketing
- Join Date
- January 18th, 2005
Here's a help-wanted ad I saw on Craigslist today, which might help some folks understand the mindset of people who sell internet marketing ebooks. Their plan is to hire a few people for one to three weeks to write the entire book. (Hmm, maybe what this really means is, they'll hire people to work for one week to produce a detailed outline, then refuse to pay them and send the outline offshore to be written into a book.)
This is the actual ad -- just one solid jpg image, no text (gosh, I wonder why?). I've merely removed the company's logo from the upper right corner. (The company's web site, which was first registered in mid-February of 2009, is little more than a placeholder, with no valid contact info and no meaningful information for advertisers or affiliates.)

I make it a point to never respond to job ads that use the word "gig" in them.-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Anyone that would sell years of experience for a few bucks is surely an idiot.

In all fairness, they've got to have someone to write all those "Books For Dummies".

Personally I find this quite refreshing. I thought they were all written by monkeys.
