For small sums of money, bloggers are willing to promote products on behalf of companies, revealed a survey. The flagship blogger Robert Basic wanted to know: given various manipulation attempts, PR agencies and companies recently in the blogger scene initiated, he started a survey among his fellow bloggers, from which sum they would write one or more Blogpostings in favour of a company without having to specify that get money. The result is sobering: only nine of 100 online diary writers on such attempts at bribery never withered. The majority however could afford and that not even shows for money, as the survey: 16 percent of a total 269 respondents would compose business-friendly postings for 500 euros. Another quarter would be satisfied with 1,000 to 2,500 euros.
20 percent would turn a blind eye as 5,000 euro, higher sums are obviously hard to imagine for many weblog. “I admit, I am absolutely shocked that Overall result”, writes Robert basic in his weblog and secretly hopes that he has made it the bloggers through the described scenario lightweight to throw all moral concerns about Board: the potential company had a good product, namely a clean image, a strong social commitment, a super staff policy, but as a result of a weak product sales, 1,000 jobs were threatened. Robert basic itself is not quite as convenient to exploit for marketing purposes: according to own statements contributions from 50,000 euros would bring only slowly to the brooding. Source:
