Lessons learned from internet trolls thanks to this cool Anonymous and Hacktivist movie

Lessons learned from internet trolls thanks to this cool Anonymous and Hacktivist movie

This was a non trading documentary but hits the hart of any programming or techie. This was sent out by Paul Cottrell.

Lessons learned but rant alert:

1. I am mixed on this. I understand these socially awkward misfits need a sense of community. I am pretty well one of them. I get that and respect their attack on Scientology and racists. Good one but when they attack innocent businesses indirectly like Paypal, my business survival is at stake because their precious little WIkileaks funding was pulled. That is when they cross the line so I send a big FU to them.

2. When any site like mine is honestly run to help dozens of people, you will always get little demented trolls with their stupid comments. Ok fine but will that stop me from posting stuff? I don’t think so but this documentary clearly shows these types are frustrated little boys in their mommy’s basement with no where to go on Saturday nights. Boo hoo. You are just like one of those little maggots who are invited to someone’s house, decide to take a crap in the corner, and think it is funny. It ain’t and you look a moron. As a result, I think engaging with these twisted psychotic types is dumb so I will ignore them. Give them their little platform to spew but they don’t realize that their lonely misery is not going to stop people like me from succeeding.  Oh yeh, a big FU to them again.
Boy that felt better so the rant is over.

My full on review on Hootsuite Pro service with these third party apps for social media marketing and management

My full on review on Hootsuite Pro service with these third party apps for social media marketing and management
Here is my review of HootSuite’s Pro paid service. It is still way too early to see the impact of the paid social networks like Google Plus
Wordpress, or StockTwits. There is no point for the extra services if they don’t work. I must say there are wierd connection problems with Google
Plus pages with some title only on my posts. That is frustrating but I am getting even stranger problems trying to post StockTwits postings. It only
appears to work with Evernote. Don’t ask me why?

Overall, I am questioning this paid service as none of this stuff works. Not worth it and a complete mess. If this is how the so-called start
up community is pulling off this kind of rubbish, no wonder they are failing with the lack of venture capital. Shame  on them. Thanks for wasting my
time you tossers.

Most of these are pure crap. It seems they are developed by a third party so I am sure HootSuite will not take responsibility if these
will work within their dashboard. Either way, it is an insult to a potential paying customer to even see this. It makes both parties look
like they don’t care about their users. It is just junk!!!  I used the latest version Internet Explorer so don’t blame it on the browser. I
got unpredictable results for each using Firefox and Opera.
So far, just stick with the paid offering as that works just fine.

So I have doubled the number of people landing on my sales pages and squeeze pages. All done organically for FREE

So I have doubled the number of people landing on my sales pages and squeeze pages. All done organically for FREE

So I have doubled the number of people landing on my sales pages and squeeze pages. It ranges from 200-400 daily That is done organically for $0 as compared to Google Adwords costing $0.50 per click. Still no sales conversions so I gotta work on that sadly. That is another science in marketing. Most sales come from emails it seems.
