Yes. I collect information on you. But before you run off and put on your tin foil hat, understand that if you have looked at my google + profile, you know far more intimate details about me, than I know about you. For instance, when you enter my website, I can identify you by your IP address. I have a round about knowledge of what country you live in and know what browser you are using. In some cases, I know where you came from. But I don’t know your name, email address, your dog’s name or who slept in your bed last night and won’t….unless you tell me. And even if you tell me, there is no guarantee that I will remember.
I’m a marketer. I sell stuff online. That said, assume that any links that I recommend on the website may benefit me in some shape or fashion. Also bear in mind that the recommendations I make are based on either a personal knowledge of the product or person that I am recommending. In other words, I recommend because I truly like or use the product and think you will too.
I’m also human. Everything expressed on this website is my opinion and I encourage you to chastise them, judge them and use YOUR brain to determine if the recommendation are as crazy cool as I think they are. As much as I would like to believe that I am right all the time, the reality is that I suffer from the same design flaws as you.
