Clickbait Your Way To Success
How each one of us can ensure we get our fair share of Internet fame & fortune.
In a world of eight-second attention spans and 7/24 sensationalism, how can we grab our fair share of eyeballs and monetize our online presence as we truly deserve?
By using the Power of Clickbait, that’s how!
To get you started I’m going to provide some handy examples to show how it’s done. After reading through this sure-fire can’t-miss list, you’ll (i) be ready to create your own fabulous clickbait, and/or (ii) be having a nervous breakdown.
Either way, it’s all good: the viewing stats for people streaming their online mental collapses are fabulous!
Without further ado, let’s take a big handful of ibuprofen and dive into the wonderful world of clickbait.

This is why a Kardashian is worth thousands of times what we pay a neurosurgeon and millions of times what we pay a firefighter. This is why a Tourette’s-syndrome know-nothing rapper is worth millions of times more than what we pay someone to look after old people with dementia or to those who help starving and abused children in war-torn countries.
That’s why they say in the world of human psychology: forget species, get specious!
