This is crazy. It’s well past midnight, and I still have to take out the trash for collection in the morning.
Why on earth am I still up???
It’s entirely my own fault. I got sucked into some training videos. I was just going to take a quick peek. A few minutes, tops.
But not this time… I’m sucked in, and I think you might be too. So I guess I had better explain myself. I absolutely had no idea I was going to be posting this tonight. I had no intention of doing so, I was just curious more than anything… but now I’m excited.
Let’s go back in time a bit shall we? Do you remember all the completely outrageous hype that surrounded the “Google Cash Detective” a couple years ago? I think it was about 2 years ago… I can barely remember now.
Anyway, it was hyped up as the hottest thing since sliced bread. It would make you a bazillionaire overnight. It would make your bed. Cook you breakfast. Clean up after the dog. You get the idea.
And I gotta say, I was very intrigued. The concept seriously appealed to my analytical nature. I mean – think about it… what if you could actually download every adwords ad, for millions of keywords, every day, for a long time. Holy cow, you’d know exactly what made money, instantly!! The Holy Grail of online marketing finally realized!
Unfortunately at the time, I was seriously strapped for cash, and it was not cheap… I just couldn’t swing it. Months later some cheap imitators came along and I bought one of them… and hated it. Returned it after 30 days and decided that “spy tools” were a total load of crap. I still feel they are fundamentally flawed and won’t make anyone rich overnight.
HOWEVER… I still think the basic idea makes sense:
* Gather intelligence.
* Analyze the data.
* Make decisions.
In my book, that’s a winning formula.
So what’s the point? The point is… there’s now a Google Cash Detective 2 and this time I got in (thanks for the heads up Mike!!). Like I said it was really just curiosity… I didn’t expect to be particularly blown away. Sure it would probably be pretty interesting, but… I’m pretty jaded about the latest PPC fads at this point.
And then I watched one of the videos. And then another. And another. And…
And now I’m wide awake and it’s 12:28AM and I still have to take out the garbage!!!!
I’m a big advocate of staying focused, of not getting distracted, of not chasing every “shiny object” that comes along.
But I have to admit, this one is really, REALLY shiny. I think I’m going to have to take a bit of a detour and implement it. They have come a LONG way since the original, where I heard a ton of horror stories about it not working, crashing, not delivering, etc. etc. etc.
All I see now is one highly evolved, smooth, absolute monster of an intelligence weapon. I only personally know one tool that might rival this, and it’s not public.
However GCD2 is once again NOT an inexpensive product. This is absolutely not for the beginner on a limited budget. But if you have the pockets for something like this, or are already a seasoned marketer… you’re gonna want to see this. Like, NOW.
Check it out and let me know what you think… I will definitely write more once I’ve deployed some campaigns and have some personal results to share.
Damn, why did it have to be so shiny???
