co Why Lousy Content Is Worse Than Porn |

Joe Hall at Marketing Pilgrim suggested to someone in a networking site to take up porn if they couldn’t produce great content. Yeah, see it for yourself.

As funny as it is, it really is serious business. No matter what kind of business you run online, you are in the content business. Your job is to produce great content. If you can’t do that then you might as well be in the porn business.

That sounds harsh, but it’s true. Think about it. What is porn? It’s a perversion of something great. Sludge. Filth. A lousy waste of time.

Good content isn’t great, but it’s not so bad as porn. Lousy content, on the other hand, is worse than porn. It’s worse than porn because it’s not even a perversion of greatness. Lousy content producers are lazy. Porn producers aren’t lazy. They’re making money perverting greatness. There’s a difference there. If you’re too lazy to even try to produce great content then you’d never make it in porn either. And that’s why lousy content is worse than porn.

Convoluted logic? I don’t think so. Porn makes money. Lousy content doesn’t. You tell me which is worse.
