Here are 18 signs that you’ve been doing online marketing a bit to long. Read this list then put down your computer and get some sun. =0)
18. Calling an emergency because you’ve found “the missing link”, and it doesn’t mean a Yeti. No, it means your email was about to launch and you forgot to put a link on your call to action, your affiliate link is a direct one instead and a post launched or you forgot to add tracking parameters.
17. When someone says cookies, you think tiny bits of tracking information, not delicious confections devoured by friendly blue monsters.
