I have talked about provocation marketing so much on my page I thought it was worth doing once to see if my suspicions were correct.
Most drama is, I think, engineered by one or both bloggers. Its a traffic generation cycle.
Having watched various popular blogs for some time I have noticed a pattern.
So I thought I would put it to the test and found myself a suitable hot head, and wrote an article.
Which generated this response
Which resulted in traffic for me!

Experiment in provocation based marketing seems successful... resulting in my latest post being one of the most read on my blog, a couple of new likes on my FB page, lots of empathy and support from my awesome readers.

Likely never again, fun as it was, those who need what I have to say will find me without continuing to employ such negative, provocation based tactics.
But as an experiment it worked out quite well. Anthony responded perfectly in the perfectly predictable way.
Please remember, everyone on the net has an angle, turf to protect, and deep down we can sometimes just be attention whores ;)
