Clicking May Be a Good Thing
I wonder how many people get the urge to click on something whenever they see an advertisement on a website. I see them all the time, but I rarely do anything about them. Sometimes I will go to them out of curiosity, but most of the time they tend to be worthless. Sometimes I will find some hidden gems in these advertisements. I saw one the other day that was pretty interesting, and when I clicked on it, it took me to a website that featured deals on satellite television service.
I had satellite service for about 4 years, and it was alright, but it wasn’t the best service. There weren’t enough channels and the price wasn’t very cheap. It seemed like every year they increased the prices for their subscribers. It was complete luck that I found the website with the deals, but I suppose it was good luck, because it enticed me to switch from my provider at the time to a new provider with a better value. I signed up for a complete package that included all of the movie channels, all of the sports channels, and even a lot of international channels. I speak more than one language so having channels with international content is interesting to me.
I think I’ll start clicking on advertisements more often. Sure there are a lot of bad advertisements out there, and some of them are just scams in an attempt to take people’s money, but there are some legitimately good ones out there that can be useful. Maybe I’ll find some that will give me better Internet service when I use them, or maybe there are some that will give be cheaper airline miles. I bet there are some that link to a real contest or some kind of prize.
