September '09 - Sex Sells.
it's a bit obvious but you can turn the fact
that sex sells to your advantage even if the
product or thing your promoting isn't really
anything to do with sex.
remember years ago I set up a website all
about a game called Quake 2 and pretended to
be one of the female game characters. At the
time Quake 2 was my favourite game because it
could be played online against other people.
I would play for hours then upload silly
screenshots and scores onto the site. I had
over 4000 hits in total on that site even
though it was really quite a messy badly
designed site. I think it was because people
thought I was genuinely female and most of
the gamers were men and fancied me.
remember reading an interview with Masamune
Shirow, translated to English because he's
Japanese and writes manga comics the most
famous being Ghost in the Shell. The
interviewer told him how manga and anime is
popular with women and maybe he should write
new comics with sexy male characters to
attract them. He replied that if women read
his comics and he changed the lead character
into a sexy male then they wouldn't be
interested anymore because women that like
sexy women are unlikely to like sexy guys.
been selling a lot of statuettes on ebay and
in the descriptions I've used the word "she"
instead of "it" if it was a female
statue. I've also made sure the body-shot
photo is selected as the main pic rather than
the total view photo. People can view the
main photo once they click on the item but
the body-shot will attract them first. I've
sold all of them so far.
