But wait there's more!
I've been noticing these google ads on many food blogs at the moment and I wonder how many people have actually watched the entire video presentation. After giving up twice I've finally watched the entire video which goes for over 25 minutes which isn't really '1 trick of a tiny belly' as advertsied. It's quite well marketed and runs through all the usual — this is who we are — we're here to help — this is the problem — this is the solution — you can trust us — this is how much it's worth — this is how much you'll only pay — but wait there's more — and this is our even better limited time offer special price etc.
Overall there seems to be some interesting points made throughout the presentation about what we should and shouldn't eat if you want to lose weight. I actually wonder how successful it is for food blogs to basically have infomercials linked to their website? And whether that means those food blogs are endorsing the product that they are advertising on their food blog? Has it made me want to buy the product — no. Have I learnt something — yes.
What do you think of third party advertising on food blogs?
