Since even before the global health pandemic conflagration, the decision to rapidly shift lens focus from Consumer to Services Provider to harness the enormous, guaranteed profit inherent in the multi-billion dollar Advertising niche was the correct move. Ahead of the panicked-rush of desperate, schitzy, chicken-headed potential Internet Snake-Oil Salespitch Victims, multiple, profitable experiments in the world of Online Advertising supplied the aegis for the exodus from a solely “Make Money Online” niche perspective. Specifically, the entrance into the marketer-relative underbelly of Advertising; the safelists, and traffic exchanges, paid-to-click (PTC), paid-to-read (PTR), and viral mailers and all the other, multiple evasions of both Good Sense and Good Taste were strenuous enough to consider getting into the game from the other angle. Noticing that, within this ecosystem, there’s a steady Tsunami-pulsing of a wave that ripples through the niche constantly, it was surmised that a sturdy-enough capsule — built CORRECTLY — would not only be able to weather any buffeting of that wave, but be driven to enervation with every push.
The ruthless undertow of the niche waters are perilously-treacherous, and made even more dangerous for those not accustomed to its’ flotsam-and-jetsam wreckage hazards swirling around in the unrelenting-murk. The main problem being the nuisance of every schemingly-entrepreneurial razzle-dazzle technician; the ubiquitous Tire-Kicker [imagine a ‘circle of hands around the rageface’]. The spawn of mutant, radioactive lamprey sucker-fish, these Tire-Kickers have the knack for latching onto commercial Advertising ventures, burrow grindy teeth into the proceedings to gnaw at it until, tattered and worn, the enterprise staggers on its’ last legs to give up the ghost to a playing field that couldn’t give two rat turds about their very Existence. Ruthless, Eh (lol!)? That the nature of the Online Advertising niche; and with almost a dozen new sites monthly, the playing field looks more beneficial for advertising site members than owners.
One of the (inherent) problems of the niche is the existence of the “Free Account”; a slot reserved for those who will effectively become the ambassadors for the site, and drive traffic at a white-hot level ESPECIALLY in chase of advertising credits allowing them to advertise to other list members. Overall, the niche was a tremendous time-suck until there were shifts in practice combined with employment of automation. It was this conundrum that was the leading-edge driver of the push into advertising. BUT, knowing the past-uber-insanity of the level of Dog-Eat-Dog competition within the niche, what was any project constructed going to have to offer to be able to stand on its’ own Two and do battle ruthlessly (and daily) for its’ niche supremacy. It was going to have to counter-intuitively think outside the donut-hole (lol!). Drawing off the metaphysical inspiration of Martial Arts, it was decided that the weakness of the niche were the strikepoints protected in the site-to-be. First strikepoint? Site construction. With no ‘All-In-One’ solution available, and the need for organizational flexibility on the spaz in the background, a custom codebase was located, and successfully-impressed into duty. The ability to control account creation with absolute power was the most important, since the notion of the “free account” had gone the way of the Dodo.
Second strikepoint? The Tire-Kicker (lol!). More decent sites were overwhelmed by their good natures rather than blessed with innate Fortune by their refusal to see the Obvious. That they would NEVER pay (no matter how many times the ‘Upgrade’ rigamarole got played). Even with lists of hundreds of thousands of…
