Facebook / Google – War on the Expense of the Consumer

  What is the Google : Facebook about? Yesterday, Google announced that they will remove their YouTube app from all Fire devices. Fire phones, Fire TV, Fire Stick, Fire Tablet as well as Echo. I don’t know how you feel about the politics between Google and Amazon. I, for one, am getting pretty tired of it. As an additional punch in the face, Google reports this via in-app messages. When I started YouTube yesterday, I was greeted by a message that YouTube will be unavailable on my device from 01/01 and I was offered a list of devices that are still supported. It’s probably save to say that this will… Read More

Appsumo vs Stacksocial – What is better?

AppSumo and Stacksocial are two of the better known “deal sites.” The promise is that you can find unique deals with savings you couldn’t find any other place. Until I came across AppSumo, I didn’t have too much experience with “social shopping” communities as a buyer. I knew a little bit about how these sites work because I tried to make a deal with a site a few years back. The site was called Living Social. My impression was that they bleed the vendor to death while the offer they put out does not reflect the meat they cut out of the vendor’s body. In other words: My impression was… Read More

Why I don’t believe in Millennial Marketing

Today I wanted to take a little break and tried to install a PC Game from 1994. It’s about a private investigator named Tex Murphy. I recently discovered the 2014 episode of the Tex Murphy series, Tesla Effect, and was intrigued by it. Drawn into the story. So much so that I purchased the other installments from the 90ties. Oh my god, such a mess on my computer. From the number of recent discussions, I could see that many people look for these old games. Well, they didn’t run and I use the break to write this down for you. The quote “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”… Read More

AppSumo Review

My AppSumo Review might come out as a love song. As you can see on the picture below, I did quite some shopping since I joined less than a month ago. Because of the nature of this site, it will be hard to review it without getting you too excited (you’ll understand what I mean very soon.)   What is AppSumo? AppSumo is a site for everyone who does anything on the internet. They work with mainly new and upcoming companies who, instead of expensive marketing campaigns, want to gain popularity and potentially some cash for the “war chest.” by taking advantage of AppSumo’s HUGE user base (SumoLings.) Most of… Read More

The Myth of Personal Branding

The myth of personal branding is told often these days. You have to be a brand. “I can help you to build your personal brand!”, says nearly everyone. There are social media sites that can help you become a brand, tools, methods – I’m sure if I do a search on Amazon, I’ll find a personal brand building protein-bar. Sometimes I read an article that talks about the topic. Many of the people who advise on this topic are true experts that could help anyone grow their business and brand. I don’t envy them right now. They have to cut through a lot of noise. Obviously, this short read is… Read More

The surprising danger of being a blogger

  The surprising danger of being a blogger? Blogging sounds like a pretty safe job to me. Marian was a frustrated insurance agent when she discovered blogging back in 2011. At first, it was a side-hustle. But as the number of viewers grew, so did her confidence. She felt proud of what she had achieved. In 2013, she quit her insurance job with a big smile on her face, a feeling of excitement in her tummy and went full time. She still remembers that day. It was a cold September day and raining outside but a ray of positivity was warming her from the inside. Marian was never happier and… Read More
