google nexus 7 16 GB is sold out

Google is surprise. Tech bloggers are surprise too…

I’m not surprise because it is a pure pricing psychology effect.

Right now you can get a nexus 7 8GB for $209 Canadian dollars.

You can also get a nexus 7 16 GB for $259 Canadian dollars.

It is a $50 difference.

You can add $50 and double your space. Is it a good deal? Maybe yes maybe no!

At this point it might sounds like a bad deal until you read the page carefully.

During this early promotion Google gives you $25 of credits to spend in their play store.

Now the nexus 7 16 GB is $234 Canadian dollars.

We are now $25 closer to the nexus 7 8 GB.

The nexus 7 16GB is more interesting with this promotion.

Now to make sure the 16 GB model sell more there is a movie in that promotion package. Yes Google is kind enough to give you Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Any savvy user and those early adopters know how big a movie is. It is really big. 8GB makes more sense with music and their mp3 files.

At 8 GB you is able to put a lot of thing. (unless you plan to put only eBooks)

So now is the question: are ready to put $25 more to keep and load your new toy for a long time.

The answer is quite obvious. At this price tag people are ready to buy once and never worry about space after.

I’m like that and I’m not alone.

Can the nexus 7 16 GB be more popular without the promotion? Yes because it is clear that people are buying the nexus 7 to watch movies. The promotion makes it a no brainer.

What can you and I learn from nexus 7 16 GB experience?

Price doesn’t matter. Price is never a real deal breaker. When you need something the value and reward from whatever you are going to buy is more important.

For example here people clearly want a device to store and play their movie for many years to come. It is obvious that 8 GB won’t make the cut.

So people are ready to spend more to worry less and meet at 100% their needs.

It is something I discover and I try to apply to anything I sell.

The big lesson here is learning and gets as much information as possible from your customers.

This is something I try to apply in my stuff.

Most of the time I’m surprise by what people really want. It is fascinating to see what they want.

One week on craigslist: How to make money over there

The economy is crazy and horrible right now. It is not a surprise that everyone is ready to find a way to make money online.

Of course you can find the traditional people that offer a services or a product.

You can find escort people sending affiliate links all over the place.

I want to focus on those people:

Those affiliates…. They don’t have a product so it is hard to pitch something on craigslist.

So I was wondering how I can pitch something on craigslist without sounding like a spammer.

I’m targeting 2 majors market dating and dating.

My idea is simple I should give you what’s in my pitch.

For example: 3 tips to get laid tonight on craigslist

I give a useful report or tool. By useful I mean something that you can use right now without doing or buying anything.

After that I should be very transparent about the fact that I want them to do a very specific task.

I plan to do it by email like that:

Facebook PR move about Privacy for facebook users

I was on Facebook this afternoon and I saw this news from Facebook in my news feed.

I follow the link and I found out this page:

facebook ads privacy

I find it very clever from Facebook. You must educate your user before the media do it for you.

It is also clear that in 2012 it’s all monetization for Facebook.

The most important thing I can lean about that: educate your user about you business all the time. Transparency is the best tool.

Spoiler alert: it cost around 1 billion dollars to run Facebook today….

I plan in 2012 to educate my users more. I also want to be more transparent.

2012 is going to be all about monetization and transparency for me too.

Google panda update: Discover the google SEO secret

I’ve read almost everything about the Google panda update.


The main problem about those updates is the definition of quality.

From what I understand from Google, quality is a piece of content that people share, like (or +) or people link to it.

Quality is more than that; it’s also the user experience. By user experience I mean is it easy to use or to get the information.

The ultimate signals that Google panda update check are your traffic growth, bounce rate and your percentage of new visitors versus returning visitors.

In other word, are you an authority? If you are the hottest website about cars Google will never slap you.

SEO just get simpler, focus on one thing and one thing only, become the superstar and watch your traffic grow.

SEO Optimization is boring now since rules change every time.

I highly recommend that you read that article from quicksprout.

Make sure you are the best at what you do and promote and share your great content everywhere.

You do not need a SEO firm , you just need to promote like a king with outstanding information.
