In part 1 of this series, I talked about the growing number of ‘chocolate teapot’ (i.e. less than useful) products that have been hitting the market lately. In part 2, I discussed why so many marketers – even well-respected marketers – jump on board and promote these products despite their shortcomings. All of this is […]
In my last post, I talked about the first of three disturbing trends I am seeing in the world of internet marketing… The growing torrent of what we would call in the UK ‘chocolate teapot’ products hitting the streets.
