One cockroach will ruin the whole bowl of cherries
In reading “ Thinking, Fast and Slow “ I came across a quote from Paul Rozin, who was introduced as “an expert on disgust” (what a title!).
Paul pointed out that “ a single cockroach will completely wreck the appeal of a bowl of cherries, but a cherry will do nothing at all for a bowl of cockroaches. “
The same is true with your marketing. If all you put out is garbage and self-centered content, a “cherry” here or there isn’t going to help things.
