Goofy or sexy - which is the best content?
Sat 02 Sep 2017
When considering what content to blog, which products or even which business to be in, the question is always "where's the action?"
There is no doubt that primary activity on the Internet is related to sex and pornography, so one would wonder is it a good idea to be in this business? In my time as a web designer we've been approached a number of times about developing a "porn site". It's something that's just not in my fabric and would cut right across my personal ethics.
There is the question of how lucrative it would be anyway with no shortage of players in the market already, so why bother?
Now there is this.
A new revelation from the book "Everybody Lies" by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz reveals another reason to dismiss this questionable industry as profitable. Seth points out around about the middle of this fabulous and fact based text that the all-time greatest viewed porn video racks just 80 million views...
While that sounds impressive, the wake-up call is that Psy's "Gangnam Style" broke the YouTube view counter as it amassed and continues to push up through 2.3 Billion views.
That's a massive difference by orders of magnitude...
For mine, this makes one thing completely clear. The world is more likely to seek out fun and entertainment 20 times more often than searching for something sexual.
"Clean" ethical products and services are where the action is without a doubt regardless of the content you are creating of the products you are researching to sell.
