I have written a few posts here about online video and I talked about Traffic Geyser and TubeMogul. In my write-ups, I have been quite clear about the fact that I prefer TubeMogul.
As I said, though, in my original article, I am willing to be wrong. It is in that light that I want to give a fair shake to Traffic Geyser. Now, as I write this post, I am about to go on vacation. So, I don’t have time to give full attention to this matter quite yet. I will, however, give a full response from Traffic Geyser when I return.
Yes, Mike Koenigs from Traffic Geyser contacted me privately in response to my post. He gave me a very well-written response and, I must say, I was very impressed. Here is a small snippet from Mike:
One is that you suggest our user base is “probably internet marketers”.
That is simply not true. We have thousands of customers worldwide – in virtually every business imaginable.
They’re not spammers.
They’re small businesses, big businesses and everything in between.
They’re people like you and me who are doing their best to get noticed and survive in a challenging economy where it’s increasingly difficult to get noticed.
They’re work at home moms and dads, big international companies, celebrities and more.
They’re distributing all sorts of content. And believe it or not, it’s not just a bunch of spam.
Please don’t take it from this snippet that Mike was being argumentative with me. Most definitely not! But, he was certainly refuting a claim I made on this site.
So, time is short here. I wanted to put this out there so that my readers are aware that there is another side to my argument and I’d like to allow Mike to make that argument here on David Risley dot com.
No, I am not making a switch to Traffic Geyser right now. I am very happy with TubeMogul.
However, I want to provide a fair shake and not give unfair criticism without a chance to respond in full. So, Mike, I appreciate your reply. We’ll be in touch when I get back, and I will provide more insight into Traffic Geyser at that time.
