Attention marketeers: you cannot buy me

by Volker Weber

We are about to launch a ***** Friend program in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and some other EU countries. The ***** Friend program means that we are giving out personal discount codes to tech bloggers in Europe - if you would be interested in writing about the ***** and call out the information that you have a code we are offering a 100 EUR fee to you from each ***** sold using your code (for example if 5 of your followers buy the ***** from our web shop and use your personal code it means 5x100 EUR reward to you). Your followers will get a -10% discount using your code.

Now you know why I never take commission. Conflict of interest. I don't care if you buy the stuff I am excited about. It does not make a difference to me. Now watch out for tech bloggers getting all excited about a scooter.

Seeing this I do not wonder why everybody and their cat are doing a [bv]log.
I hear "haul" blogs are a big thing with teens/twens.
Maybe I should consider working less + starting such a merch blog. Might help towards the "real rich" status you discussed recently. Sadly I'm too old and not enough "video personality" for a haul vlog. Those seem easy.

Nothing is easy. You have to be young, you have to be pretty. Both of these things fade away. And people get sick of you pretty quickly, once they understand what you are doing.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
