I enjoy blogging and releasing content and this site is the perfect platform for that.
So I post here weekly (or at least try!) and I have been noticing a couple of things.
- Practically nobody comes to this website other than people who click the link that is on my Twitter.
- There are a lot of people who like my posts and follow this blog after I do post.
So I started looking into it, and I’m holistically convinced that the people who are doing so are bots.
Sure there might be one or two of them just trying to do mass marketing through mass following and liking (which is an actual marketing strategy), but I think the majority of them are bots.
Some are more straightforward than others.
Some of them will just be called “GreatMarketingTips”, “SuperSportsNews”, “TravelDestinationFun” or something equally blatant.
Some of them will try to be more sneaky.
Bill Josephson, but then you look at the first posts and its “5 great marketing strategies” and “Great ways to improve business”
I love blogging and although you might expect my next few words to be of hate they are not.
The bots are funny to me, the idea that this website doesn’t have any users but rather only bots talking about marketing is hilarious to me.
I’m not upset. This is has been a great experience.
