Default Re: How the world's most hated blogger makes money...

Hi Jim,

Thanks for sharing your experience with meeting up with Casey Serin...

The problem with his blog is that it is his main source of income, and if you look at the hours he puts into it compared to what he's making with it, you'll see that it's very likely under minimum wage.

The last couple of months have been a bit better.

But the funny thing - It's hardly a real estate blog even though he calls it that.

It's a place whare people can go and watch a trainwreck and it's actually pretty fascinating. The guy makes more stupid decisions than most normal people are capable of.

But still, I kinda like the guy.
It looks to me like he's taken lemons and made lemonade... Might be clever. But yeah, who would want to put up with so much "hate"? Whereas, I get the feeling he's encouraging it!

It's a kind of "Jerry Springer" effect - people like to see a good brawl! So they come in droves...

As far as any publicity being good publicity? I'm not so sure.

I've considered advertising on his blog because it gets incredible traffic. The problem is that once you advertise there, it's like an endorsment from Casey and the last thing I would want is to have my product endorsed by a guy that everyone hates.

Almost a guilty by association sort of thing.
I agree... you gotta be cautious...

But it might fit some businesses... Though I'm not sure what, off the cuff!

But for anyone that hasn't checked it out, his blog is a fun one to follow.

And another one that you might be interested in if you want to see the other side of what can happen to a real estate investor at the top of his game (but without all the hate).

Check out....

Good luck to Joe with this!

Perhaps unfortunately, the way the system is, state Attorney Generals and District Attorneys have to win elections. And sometimes they like to "ham it up" and even conduct "show trials" to get publicity that they're "tough on crime" - so they can win the next election. (Mike Nifong, take a bow.)
