MY TRYST WITH INTERNET MARKETING

The story of our times is best written on a computer. It is an indelible part of our lives and so my poem today is on an unusual topic -  namely Internet Marketing. Ruefully I begin by admitting that it is a pretty tough business and it does not give up its millions to just an intrepid passerby.
Consider that you must first be able to set up a cracker of a website that loads in nano seconds. Then comes the  FUN part like opt-in pages, landing pages, auto responder emails, squidoo accounts, list building software and on and on it goes. Its really like playing tic-tac-toe , round and round I go, if I miss I take this !!
Now to come back to the poem I am about to read (I did read it out at a Rotary fellowship event) - it is a satire on myself.
One morning when I was feeling particularly frustrated in not making any headway I decided to see the humour in the situation. The poem I am glad to say was completed in a matter of minutes. I have quoted the names of many gurus of the internet world as my tribute for all their help.


In a perfect world all we would like to talk about are our successes, That success does come but not without its fair share of failure is something most of us are just not comfortable talking about.  This poem was written to help me come to terms with my temporary setbacks so to speak. But hey, what the heck, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
