Scott Rohn is a good dude. He’s one of the hardest working guys in this business and is one of the only guys that has really taken the advice of ‘being in front of the video camera’ to heart. He deserves huge kudos for showing up, every day even when the deck was stacked against him.
Last week, he had enough! He wrote a blog post where he passionately tore into the ‘penny surfing’ mentality and in the process used…Explicit language throughout the post.
Some folks appreciated his passion and agreed with his assessment of the traffic exchange industry, while others were saying he being vulgar and should not have used that kind of language in a blog post.
I’m not saying he was right or wrong, this is just my observations (before people rip my head off lol)
Anyways, because of that blog post he received over 30 comments (pretty sure this was the most ever on his blog), there was a huge discussion about it in Skype and Facebook and I’m writing about the post many days after it was published.
Now let’s take a look at the last post I made on Hit Exchange News, which was published on the same day. In that post, I talked about ClickTrackProfit paying out over $200,000 in commissions and the importance of staying the course no matter what. 20 comments. Rarely discussed in Facebook or Skype. Not a lot of fan fare.
So we have two posts…Published the same day. One about penny surfing and dropping ‘F-Bombs’ and another about building a successful business and paying out over 200k.
This is my thought…Human beings love train wrecks. They love controversy and while this isn’t a dig at the traffic exchange industry as a whole, it’s an observation about how one can use ‘conflict and controversy’ in their business. Now before you again, rip my head off, I’m not saying you have to drop f-bombs in your blog posts, I’m just noticing what gets people fired up and what doesn’t.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be $200,000 in commissions lol
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with the folks that applaud Scott’s passion? Or do you feel cursing has no place online in business.
I’d love to hear your opinions and see what you think 🙂
