The only thing more frustrating than not being able to get a job is when you are able to. This is the reality of life and it is one that most people live through. Being unemployed leaves one with the question, “what if?”.
The reality of life is that you are not always on top of your game. When you are not busy building your skill and creating valuable content, you are not doing the work of being a good employee. It’s possible that you might be unemployed for a while, but the fact is that there are a lot of jobs out there. At the end of the day, there is no such thing as a 100% ideal job.
In the old days, before the Internet, the best way to get work was through a bank. The bank would give you a job for one hour a day, and that was it. There was no such thing as a free lunch, and you had to be willing to work for free. Before the Internet, the best way to build a following and gain business was to provide free products.
That’s the new way to do it: to provide free products, and build a following. Before the Internet, you had to make real products and give them away, but now you can make a lot of products for free. In fact, you can make your product for free now. You can create your own website, send it to people, get them to sign up for your newsletter, and you don’t even have to give them a credit card. You could send them a free gift.
If you have a great product, you can sell it. If you have a good product, you can offer it for free. But in the case of coinbase, their product is very good. So, their product is free, so they have nothing to lose by offering it for free.
In the past, only the wealthy, who wanted to be sure to have their products protected by a government entity, were able to offer their products for free. But with the rise of the Internet, more and more people are able to make products for free, and even offer them for free. So, in fact, you can offer your products for free even if they are not really that good, and if you’re a good marketer, you can get someone to pay for it.
Coinbase is one of the few places where you can really make a profit without really having to pay anything. As a result, their marketing plan for the new Bitcoin is pretty impressive.
They’re aiming to get in the $50 million to $100 million range in bitcoin sales by the year’s end. And they’re looking to grow their market share in the US. So in a way, they’re really doing themselves a great service.
One of the big complaints we hear from new Bitcoin users is that Coinbase is not very transparent about what they are doing. They also tend to be very slow in responding to questions, which leads us to think that they might actually be a bit of a scam. But, as we learn from other sites that have gone through this same experience, having a good marketing plan helps make sure that your site gets seen.
Coinbase does seem to be a bit slow about responding to the media. As a result, we will probably be the first to admit that this is most likely a pretty bad idea. But, I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
