What Gillian Chung can teach you about making money online

Get people’s attention first

model naomi campbellWhat will catch your attention: a campaign about milk featuring cows or model Naomi Campbell?

Exactly: unless you are really into any kind of cows, your attention will be pointed to Naomi Campbell, only then you will notice the milk.

This is a famous campaign that still continues 10 years after featuring model Naomi Campbell as the first in a long list of celebrities in the Milk Mustache Campaign.

Attention first, money later

As soon as you get people’s attention, you need to sell your own product. Quite difficult at first when people come to see a pretty face, yet if you just stick to your marketing-strategy, you should be able to make money.

Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but when you know that the Milk Mustache Campaign already runs for 10 years, you know you only need one winner and ride that one out.

When doesn’t it work? When you see it doesn’t work… that’s the basic rocket science to apply… Always test what you are doing before considering opening the big bazookas!

Isn’t this a cheap whore trick?

According to Lilian it is, when she criticizes my post ages ago:

cheapest whore

Yet Lilian uses the same cheap whore tactics herself: riding on the sex scandals of Chen, Chung and Cheung :

cheap whore

Some tactics are to be criticized, yet

don’t use a tactic yourself and
criticize others they shouldn’t use that tactic.

Not everybody likes you when you make money online

You will always have people that for one reason or another don’t like what you are doing.

If it is only 1 person (and all their friends), then you need to know it’s part of the trade.

If it’s a lot of people that don’t like you but still come to your blog to scold you… still you are doing something good… But it needs "politicians" skin to

Worst case: better be good in being bad than just being bad…

Attracting people with Gillian Chung

See how wisely Lilian uses Gillian Chung to relate it to a software program to secure your digital photos. As smart as linking model Naomi Campbell to milk.

It get’s a bit more extreme when people just try to fool you big time and selling you an illusion. That’s exactly what is happening with the 2006 issue of EasyFinder magazine:

Edison Chen Gillian Chung pictures?

At the left, some pictures of Gillian Chung, but who is the girl on the right top? You could be easily fooled to think it is also Gillian Chung and buy the magazine hoping to find even more pictures…

But the girl on the right is no less than Chen Zihan, again tricked by EasyFinder magazine to "look to the camera" when she was changing clothes and EasyFinder was "changing the lights"…

Using Gillian Chung to promote your stuff is 1 thing, tricking people into pictures they don’t approve, that’s a complete other thing.

What about Angelina Jolie wearing Red

Now Todd from Todd Harisson Photos asks in my Shinade’s list of marvelous bloggers post why Angelina Jolie is wearing red in my CNY post?

Would you rather have seen this red cow?

So again same idea summarized:

  1. get people’s attention first
  2. monetize

  1. ah… I like the way you talked abt the magazine cover, Easy finder had to change their name to Face after that issue.. now it’s Gillian again, however, people start to think she is so fake. Btw , magazine sells more

  2. @Hunkol

    Fake… I wouldn’t advocate the things I did 10 years ago either! 🙂 I am just lucky that nothing bad happened I guess…

    This is my opinion about the whole Gillian Chung story (not to mention how silly I was when I was younger…)
