How much?
Did you get permission from Google to use their name?
What does this have to do with a zero turn?
I wish you would quit spamming this forum.

I think I've provided enough truly useful content on this site to negate your "spamming" comment.

How much hard earned knowledge have you provided us for free? Probably not much. See, ya gotta be a "giver" as well as a "taker."

Actually, there was a lesson in my post, but you missed it.

If I posted "see my new video" you would not have clicked it. Way boring, like the guys that spend money to put signs on their truck saying "Lawn Care -Residential and Commercial".

Wow, what a marketing pitch! Must have stayed up all night brainstorming that one!

However, when you saw "How much did this video cost?! A new zero turn?!" You clicked it. My headline accomplished it's mission. This is a SEO section of the forum, is it not? Possibly it is a little advanced for you.

As to being sued by Google, that would manna from heaven. I would ride that train all the way to CNN!

However, I won't be that lucky. Search +url:google to find how many sites have the word Google in the URL. I'll save ya some time: 80 million.

Oh, and the "zero turn" thing? I saw that a 50" Troy Built zero turn was 3 grand, similar to what I paid for my new video.

Thanks for stopping by Little. hope you learned something useful.

If you didn't, it's not because the lesson wasn't there.

I didn't learn anything from your posts or video.

For sure you've gotten us to click the link. On the Gopherforum, we all support each other & look into whatever anyone has posted, seeing what it is you have to offer. If it wasn't on this forum, I probably wouldn't have clicked it.

And why come on this forum & criticize us for putting signs on our trucks? You will find no justice doing such a thing. I think you are too proud for unknown reasons, & not someone I'd want to do business with.

Coming on this forum, it's better to explain to us how your service works instead of using your marketing strategy on us. If it smells like spam, it probably is.

I don't mean to discourage or upset you. I just don't understand what the point of this topic was about, & if your so brilliant at marketing & whatever it is you do, you have to understand that real people do fail, & try not to get so offended.

In other words, your attempt wasn't a success, you are the provider, not the consumer, so what have you say? You can't throw a fit every time someone doesn't understand or cares about what you have to offer, it's life. Not good business.

Well from my point of view. I see you come on here pitch us your Google Slam stuff and that is what you call contributing. This forum is for people to chat about lawn care and such. If your post is under SEO, well it still doesnt have any sort of lawn care theme behind it except for your name, which you should change to something that fits your style, like maybe...GoogleSpam.

Oh yeah, by the way, if you have to trick people to click on something, well then that is spam.

BOOM!

lol.


Yeah, why not advertise your service for what it is, instead of playing mind games? You can respond that sure, life is all about games... get real, you know what I mean.

If I tell people I mow lawns, I tell them exactly what I do... I don't compare myself to other companies, I let them decide. If they ask why I'm different, I'll respond by saying,

"Well most companies around here have gotten so big, they aren't interested in doing small jobs, or keeping their customers satisfied. My goal is to grow, & to only bite off what I can chew, so I have time to solve problems my current customers have, instead of avoiding them for weeks"

I don't tell them, "Oh well the competition here sucks, I'm better than everyone, if you don't choose me your dumb"

The fact is, everyone has good & bad days, & has the power to turn their business around, no one is perfect, everyone has flaws.

My company is small, we don't offer much because we don't make much...

Big companies have everything, but they are so preoccupied with putting their tools to work then remembering to send out letters of appreciation to their customers. Sure they are successful, but one day I will be possibly more successful. When things start changing, & people we go to the one who supports them the most.

I try my best not to lie, once you lie it'll haunt you & eventually catch up to you. Be straightforward, I'd like to see an honest business become a success at least once!

LAWN MAINTENANCE, a brand new Microwave?!
lol

Hi Breeze 2009.

"I didn't learn anything from your posts or video."

Really? All of them or just this one?

I did a quick search on "website imitator". Maybe Steve can find it for you.

Read it. All of it.

I can't and don't care enough to help you find it.

if you want to jump into the second decade, don't be lazy, find the posts yourself.

With combined views of almost 20,000, some people were learning SEO. It's not just my posts but Richiems and others, that will teach you quite a bit about marketing in 2009.

If you don't get it, no worries. Tow your ball bearing needy trailer all over town and hang door knob flyers.

The world will go on without you.

However, if you aspire to 10 trailers needing ball bearings, and want to get that message from your project manager while you are tuna fishing in the keys, you may want to take notes on the hundreds of SEO posts I've already done.

As to the "truck signs", I'm pointing out the very common failure of most lawn guys to THINK!

You believe that you are in the "Lawn Care" business?

Keep thinking that and you will be a small timer forever.

You, like every other business man, regardless of industry, are in the exact same business.

You are in the ARITHMETIC business. Period.

The "arithmetic" applys to signs, customer service, "spammy blog posts and any other F%^$ marketing skill you can conceive.

So I piss off "little + breezy"? Good.

My WHOLE POINT is to piss off and discourage "Little + Breezy."

Maybe that way you will learn something about SEO.

If you don't, that's on you. The info is here if you want it.

Don't blame me for being good at it.

"don't hate because I'm pretty" You are probaly too young to remember that commercial. It was the most hated commercial ever since the 1960's "Ring around the collar" ad.

Also the most successful since the "collar" ad.

Don't blame me cuz you don't get it.

P.S., thanks for helping me start a fight here. Every time I do I get more traffic

I almost forgot.

Don't be like "Little + Breezy"! Get sleazy!

definition of "sleazy" = "put down the Bong and read/work and write AD copy that makes you money". (source: Daniel Webster or someone that looks a lot like him)
