The Secret of John Chow’s Success Revealed!
Have you ever wondered how well known “make money online” blogger John Chow managed to gain as much popularity on the Web in the early blogging era? What’s the secret of his success?
The Name Wins the Game
Well, one day I finally found out! Just read these two words aloud slowly and at least three times: John Chow, John Chow, John Chow. Did you get the idea?
Right! It’s the name stupid! It’s about his name! How could you ever succeed with a name like Tadeusz Szewczyk?
John Chow is just one syllable for the first name and one for the family name.
They sound just perfect, strong, somehow American but still exotic nonetheless.
It’s like a mix of John Wayne and Jackie Chan: John Chow. His name sounds already like that of a star, so becoming one is just a matter of time.
So what now? Will I stop here at admiring my competitor? No!
I will proceed to outsmart John Chow by using a better name and a better motto!
As I already asked you to call me Tad I will elaborate on that a little. You know, my name – Szewczyk – only looks unpronounceable. In fact it is pronounced like two well known English words: chef and check!
As I know what’s cooking in the SEO kitchen I do not need to check it: thus Tad Chef was born!
Isn’t Tad Chef much better than John Chow? Maybe not, but now listen to my new motto: Have fun making money online! Do you get it now?
John Chow vs Tad Chef – Who Wins?
You are still not convinced? Then I’ll give you 7 more reasons why John Chow will lose in the cat fight of John Chow vs Tad Chef:
- John Chow has been thrown out of Google
- John Chow’s site is so full of ads, you barely see any content
- He is not as funny as I am
- He has no ridiculous head gear like I have
- He drives ridiculous gas guzzling supercars! I only own an environmentally-friendly bike (a beach cruiser)
- He does not even look good unlike most celebs. Yet maybe I can’t judge that as a heterosexual male
- He is a nobody in Iran and I am in the top 10 for [good things about Iran] on Google.com
You see? It’s not hard to rename yourself. When you are blogging for a global audience you can simplify your name and use a nickname or brand name instead. Tad Chef of onreact works very well and is memorable.
But everytime you write about him you are increasing his brand even further ;)
Well, I acknowledge that he needs some assistance so that he does not have to give up before the fight…
John Chow is lame. I stopped reading his site a long time ago. The new design is soooo lame, jesus, somebody teach the designer a lesson or two about clutterness.
sure the new design might let him make more money, but i really hate the ads – i know this is a “make money online blog”, too many ads and make you dizzied.
I must remind that I’d already said more than 3 week before, that John Chow is lightweight as compared to you ;) (sorry all, that post is in Polish).
I’ll root for you :)
I agree “He is not as funny as You are” :). Tad Chef is good one – may I put Your CV on my cooking site? :) “He is nobody in Iran” – that’s really makes me laught.
I’m just using adblocker for John’s site. All is manageable :). Without it the site is really crowded.
Good luck Tad Chef!!! :)
Can someone please explain to me why Quantcast.com lists John Chow’s monthly traffic at a pathetic 4800 visitors? WTF? I think I smell bullsh*t. There’s no way he’s hitting the number$ he claims to hit.
I guess you have to ckeck Alexa instead: http://tinyurl.com/28la2a
