Youtube and internet are increasing sales like anything. Sell anything, promote anything, market everything. Ultimately sales get increased both online and offline.
Before youtube, we go to shop see, touch, and feel the product we want to buy. We do not take decision then and there. We return home, think, discuss with family, friends whether to buy or not. After returning from the shop, we are not obsessed by the product we like to buy.
But, now, in youtube days, we see the reviews of the product repeatedly. Mostly reviews will be positive about the product. Smart phone in hand will obsess about the product.
We are in a sort of self-compulsion to buy the product after watching youtube reviews and reading reviews from product reviewing websites. If we have money, nothing can stop us from buying. Scarcity of money is the only procrastination to buy. Otherwise, obsession created by youtube, internet, social media are beyond tolerance.
If you stop connecting to internet for a while, your purchases will be reduced. Tendency to spend will be less.
Stop connecting to internet, you will see the change in you. Internet is full of marketing, promotions – surfing internet will drain your bank account like anything. Internet is also a selling platform. It triggers both online and offline sales. It is a sales trap. Do not be victim of it.
