I found a great AdWords mess-up this morning while doing some research for one of my projects. This is a classic case of someone not proof reading their Google Adwords. This ad stating the you can Grow Back Hair Fast is obviously targeting the right market (my search was for Hair Loss Surgery) but isn’t quite hitting the mark. Who wants to grow back hair? Certainly not me. I recommend having someone proof read your ad’s before they go live. At worst, walk away from your computer for a couple of hours and go back and have another look at them. Sometimes the break away from the monotonous environment of your computer workstation will do you a world of good and you’ll find mistakes like this one before they go live and you spend your money on them.
I think it is awesome, Google that is. They have opened up a new economy to the entire world. If you are willing to put in the time to learn about the web, you can turn your back (hair) to day jobs that involve putting on business clothes, commuting to work, dealing with some old asshole’s attitude just because he has been in the business world long enough to know everybody. No more cubicle and no more standard bi-weekly paychecks. On a more negative note, no more wasting time at the water cooler with the hot chick, now that you work for yourself, time is a precious money making commodity.
The best and worst part about this is that all the high dollar big wigs and all these large corporations don’t even know we exist. They don’t even have the slightest understanding of the true potential behind the super economy highway. The Internet, yeah, it’s pretty awesome.
