If you followed Donald Trump on twitter you would've seen the 'Liberal Tears Mug' being spammed by bots (bought aged twitter accounts, with profile picture changed to include pro-Trump/Alt-right ideology). How did people react to these bots? Pro-Trumpers retweeted the bots posts ("HA HA, Trump won!!! Collecting liberal tears with this mug generic-t-shirt-site.) . Every day, for weeks. Search google trends 'liberal tears mug' you'll see the general search spike. People were actively searching for 'liberal tears mugs just to gloat... What happened? Trump's supporters are thinking "ha ha, yeah! Liberals lost. Take this liberals. I'm gonna spite you with this mug". They're emotionally invested in the support of Trump, and so that campaign resonated with them. They aren't thinking that someone will fake support of Trump just to make money. All they see is: Pro-Trump? - Check! - Whip out credit card - thanks deplorable! What can you learn from this? People are biased, and will select an interpretation of a situation the that most fits their biases. And they don't realize how low people are willing to go. Or rather they don't want to believe it, because it doesn't match their worldview. (e.g. I made quite a lot of money with bullshit 100% fabricated Illuminati videos, always substantially more likes than dislikes, and I was almost never accused of lying ). What can you take from this? Exploit people's biases, emotions, vulnerabilities. Do it hard and do it well. Enter their minds. See yourself as having the same vulnerabilities, sharing the same beliefs, and think about what someone in that position would think, would feel etc... Basic ideas: - Soulja Fraud T-shirts (he's receiving a lot of attention atm, and this phrase is mindlessly repeated by his fans) - I'd use a similar same strategy as the Trump bots - Affiliate review site for fat women "2017 Ultimate Guide to Being Fat and Sexy" - website and theme should be something catchy like yougogirl dot com imo List a bunch of relatively high priced random woman's wear for fat people. If you're site is well made, they'll already view you as some sort of authority, and the actual clothes won't really matter. Just make sure you pick shit fat people can fit into. You get the jist? Now stop looking for "methods", and look for vulnerabilities. I intend to write a bullshit ebook surrounding pseudo-psychology, or Christian dates of Jesus' return -> landing page -> ad on a christian forum/facebook ads Will post the journey. PS: There aren't 3 marketing lessons in this post - psychology studies show a higher click rate when a number is specified. Humans are irrational.
