Never having seen a single episode of South Park, I am only familiar with the “underpants gnomes” by secondhand information. This, however, is their business plan:
Surprisingly, they are not the only folks to come up with such an ironclad scheme.
Some time ago, I got an offer to join the GunUp network, with the following promise:
GunUp.com is sending 10 of its Gun Blog Network members to next years SHOT show. Basically, you just put the badge on your site, and then they link you, and feature your posts from time to time. It has been great for my traffic.
Much earlier this year one of my sponsors said they were going to send some gun bloggers to the SHOT Show. I was told that I’d be one of the ones to go, for sure. Unfortunately, that sponsor wasn’t able to afford to send any bloggers to the show after all.
Huh. No one saw that coming.
