P.S. How many people buy the same stokcs as he does that you just posted his Portfolio?
Funny you should menton GoDaddy. Did you know that in 2005? when they ran their 1st Superbowl commercial with that woman who's bra almost pops off the company was Broke.


They invested 2 Million dollars in that commercial. They had almost no money left to pay rent and wages.

That superbowl ad launched Godaddy into the largest Registrar in the world.

Bob Parsons (previous owner) sold Godaddy for over 2 Billion dollars only 6 years later. That's right, 2 Billion: http://mashable.com/2011/07/02/godaddy-sold/

Yeah I know about that one, old new seen it on cnn!

And that ad proved to be that WOMEN are good! For things like that, plus he had women all over the website!

Most billionaires these days are making it offline. At the start it was automotive along with oil, real estate. Now online world!
--------------------------
update!

See you have all these ideas and know how it was done and learning History of others making it big and you are using it and it's very useful is it not?

Problem is, godaddy got big very FAST! $8 what the public wants!

Ketchup has something all people love. = Taste.

Coca-Cola well, what can I say? It's first year they only sold 600 bottles! They didn't give up and good job!

Gillette - well they got stuff we need daily!

GM, self told in history.

You know what they all have you and me don't? THE IDEA TO BE THE FIRST AT DOING IT!!!!! We are what they would call "Bottom feeders" I sell stuff you can get at stores! There is $500 billion a year in the business. I don't even touch .01% of that!

K Maybe not GM, but Ford was!

People say. Apple is very good at marketing. I THINK/BELIEVE differently. All of you run a business on ebay, all of you don't want to risk a virus! So what do you do? Get the apple system. I know most of you, use it. Ipod was a great idea. Marketing it or not, I am sure everyone wants to replace a CD player, walk-man. Iphone got big cause people are already on their computers 12/7 so why not give them one something to be online while from work to the house! Any place! Mini laptop, iphone.

Maybe they are really good. But I've got ideas to improve a lot of products in this world. Not saying for apple but other products.

Steve Jobs was a genius at marketing. He kept new releases Stealth until the day of the news conference. They still do.

Personally, I could give a damn about some new phone, ipad, Macbook, etc... but, if you follow the cult-like company then it's a BIG deal.

I use Windows because Most of the programs I run are all designed for Windows. Very few software designers in the Internet Marketing industry build for Mac.

People will say you can run that Mac program that allows for windows but very few do in the real world.

Apple charges big Premiums vs competitors for the same product.

Apple is only sold by Apple stores or approved resellers.

Apple is cutting edge on design.

Appple has a cult-like following.

Apple is not trying to take over the world like Windows tried to do.

Apple has carved out a niche.

Apple stores are so Unique that they applied for a US Patent for store design. Can you beieve that? Microsoft copied their store idea,, now Apple is suing.

Apple does a lot of things right.

I still hate Apple, lol.

P.S. I've spent a small fortune on Macbook Pros, iPads, iPhones, etc... for my kids. Apple sends me emails every week to build a relationship.

It's funny because we were actually talking about 'Apple' in my marketing class at university. Our lecturer said Apple spends less than Microsoft on advertising, and yet they've gone into a trend that to have a 'apple device' is 'cool' and 'luxurious' whilst a windows device is the 'norm'..and through their own marketing techniques they imprint this in your brain..just like how they imprint..if you have a iphone 4..you NEED a iPhone 5 now..

People got to keep up with technology! They'll make things work with iphone 5 and it wont work with iphone 4 no more. So you HAVE to buy the newer crap. Do you see windows XP running most java sites and so on? NO you need windows 7 at least along with games and programs cause your old pc won't have enough ram or graphics card won't work with newer stuff! And google chrome or IE won't work with older system cause they require a lot of power! Etc.

I know it is! It's like video game systems okay? We all loved SNES game system or Play station 1! What does the gaming world companies do? They give you a new system, and stop making games for the old system, so if you want newer games YOU have to buy a NEWER system! It's all manipulation anyways, and they push you to buy it! The best system you can get is a Computer! But after 2 or 3 years, good bye! It also needs upgrades and so on! I got a laptop Sony Viao. Very nice system here. I play old games, newer games etc. Works wonders for me! I watch my movies on it, I do my business, I do video chat with the wifey. I read my news.

Gosh how did all these older people do it back then? Must of been a boring life!

And I totally agree that spending your money on crap and pleasures is stupid !

Well that's interesting.

Pleasures and luxuries are just hollow. When you tag the term Marketing (like say Apple does) that changes the meaning of entire concept. I find Apple and "the likes" quite Hollow. Promoting a product as better or superior over the competition when there's nothing more to it there than a layer of simple luxury, is somewhat foul. Especially given the state of affairs in the world today, notably between the haves and have-nots. I guess luxuries have their limited place, but it can't be demanded as the norm -- perhaps only in a world of limitless resources.

When you market a product what is the real aim behind it? I couldn't agree less Apple is too good at Marketing and also patently obvious that the content of that marketing is rather quite dilute. To me these sort of practises give Marketing a bad name.

If you're going to Market something sell it for it's actual value and content. Not BS customers into thinking there is more there than actually is.

Another example is the type of marketing you see on eBay with flood-loads of the same product all trying to undercut one another. This is probably the other extreme end of the Apple scenario -- poor marketing mated with literal junk.
