John Chow is a legend in “making money on the internet”. He actually recently claimed on T.V. that he was making 30k a month with his online business, which is mainly johnchow.com. I’m pretty sure it’s close to the true numbers as he’s really known to make a lot of money from his websites. Anyway, the point of this article is to express how I feel he is insulting every honest blogger out there with one of his recent post. He posted an article on viral videos and how it can help you drive traffic to your website. He actually made a viral video which is total crap. While being a working way of driving traffic to your website, I think it has to be done in a very clever way to be efficient. Obviously, he didn’t.
The video is at the end of the post if you can’t wait to see it and don’t want to read the rest of this post. But, rest assured, I couldn’t watch more that 60 seconds of the video so you can wait. For every honest blogger out there, the video is an insult. I personally try to post intelligent articles with good content every 1-3 days. I get extremely positive comments and this guy comes in, making 30K a month, and does the worst video I’ve ever seen to promote his website. Honestly, the video is a total pain. He probably got a couple more readers with that video just because he is “John Chow”. I would have lost all reputation by making this video, but unfortunately, he’s still quietly making 30k a month. Maybe he’s more clever than all of us and tried to make the shittiest video available so I would link to his website. In this case it worked, but it’s still an insult for all of us.
Here’s the video for your non-entertainment:
