There are a couple of things to keep in mind. Number one, don’t believe everything you hear. Number two, especially if it’s on television. The TV is so pervasive in our lives, let’s not let these commercials like MaxMySpeed.com or MyCleanPC.com these are sites that I have written about on my blog. They dupe people into thinking that their computers are infected and then proceed to up sell the consumer a fix.
Let’s think about this for a minute. Anyone with some moderate computer skills can generate a commercial, then pay to have that commercial aired. It is not as expensive as you might think. I priced full 30 second spots with 250 airings or slots across 15 different networks at a modest $4,500. That put my ad in front of a potential 1.5 million eyeballs each day for 25 days.
If it sounds to good to be true, then it is. Don’t part ways with your hard earned money because some pitchman made that product sound good. Research FIRST! If there COULD be doubt, Google it out!
