Just something I've noticed. Does controversy help sell a product? It seems to me the more drama surrounding a release the more attention it gets and the numbers probably go up! What are your thoughts? Especially here on the Café. Drama seems to more threads, keep them at the top of our thoughts, and help push products!

Is this the new marketing technique?

Publicity is publicity...even if it's a "this smells awful-here, you smell" situation.

So how do I get started? I have a new ebook I want to push - will one of you volunteer to talk trash about it : )?

Ok. Wish it wasn't an ebook. I'm running out of toilet paper.

Oh no he di'int! everyone ...go out and buy this book immediately, just to see how wrong he is!

(this is a great idea, if I ever write a book I hope everyone acts all controversially to Smile )

I heard that in your book you have a terrific russian roulette routine that works (some of the time) with nothing but a psychological force! Some people don't understand the power of the russian roulette routine that really does only work some of the time.

... There really just magicians who want to be mentalists.

I recently received a FREE preview copy of this ebook and it is AMAZING! Don't believe Bob Cassidy (he doesn't know a thing about real world performing anyways), this ebook is 10 pages long and contains 30 fantastic effects that will go straight into my act, tomorrow! These are real workers! I tested one out on my kid sister who is 12 years old and her mind was BLOWN!

The only thing I would be upset about (if I had paid for it) was the price. At $4.99 I thought it was a bit too steep. Plus it has copy protection which is annoying as I can't upload it to P2P and share it with my friends.

Peace out, go buy it!

It seems the author of this collection of what can only be described as insane effects; has had to go into hiding following death threats from some of the biggest names in the business.

Effects which the stars have spent years trying to get exclusive rights to, are practically being given away for any youtube generation kid to tell his classmates about.

At least one Las Vegas big-name is planning ways to acquire every copy of this as it goes out.
By whatever means necessary.

This is dangerous stuff.
Keep away from it.
You've been warned

@steveline: This is one of the best sales lines I have ever read...
If Tincture has any idea about marketing he would quote you on his website!

Second thought.Maybe I should quote you on my website and announce that I own the only and last remaining copy after Tincture has been buried in the Las Vegas desert by the Magic Castle delta team... (of course printed on real toilet paper)

Thank you Mr Wolf.

Be careful what you put on your site. ****** *** has agents scouring every forum, website and youtube comment for the merest mention of this e book.

There is an old marketing quote:

Any publicity is good publicity. Doesn't anybody take acting anymore?
Just cause they say it, doesn't make it true.
