    No, it's not masturbating :D

    Have you ever been caught by marketing practices, tatics or strategies?

    I mean, we know IMs are "different" and even myself not beeing the most experienced IM can spot (most of the times) a good from a bad product and can sense when someone is trying to sell me something even though they might be subtle.

    But... yesterday I looked to my mirror and thought to myself that I could use a diet. Now I know that thought came to me because I saw a very convincing weight loss product in instagram few days ago.

    I ended up buying that f**** "personalized plan" with meals and exercises that are the same bs everyone in youtube videos shows.

    What about you? Ever bhought something like this or been caught in other marketing strategies like email submits?

    Well everything is marketing, subconsciously every day from TV Interet, street ads.

    You always have choice between 10 product but you always choose that 'one', not because it's best one, you never tried other ones, but you use that one.

    I've never been "caught" really.

    I have had accounts that were frozen by CPAs before.

    That's why I said I had been caught lol otherwise I would have done what you suggested :)

    Saw so many people in comments satisfied with the plan and they seemed legit buyers.

    Ever since I learned around IM I hate being marketed to, pisses me off lol

    You look at stuff different after you understand the marketing world.

    Yeah, long ago my roommate walked in on me and a girl I was seeing. I just told the mate to shut the door and I took her back to pound town.

    That's what the big bad wolf did when he first started out, blowing dandelions and birthday candles and stuff like that.

    I bought a specialized meal plan program made for me today, by a local body builder. If it is properly made he will tell you exactly how much to eat and when to eat (calculating how many calories you need). The price was 100 bucks but it most have taken him several hours to put it together so it's well spent money as they have the experience. I am trying to cut down to about 175 lbs from 195 lbs so I should be in shape by summer.
