Pandemics affect marketing companies negatively

Well… duh! During the recession that started in the U.S. on December 2007 and lasted until June 2009, the marketing and – especially – the advertising sector went to crap faster than many other sectors. For example, even though the global spending was down 9% in 2009, the ad spending was down an extra 3% on top of that. Pandemics affect marketing companies negatively, and since marketers aren’t likely to prevent the incoming recession by finding a cure for Coronavirus, we’re slashing the prices of some of our services:

Subreddit Subscriber – new price $0.99, down from $1.09. We’ve also added one more bonus at the end of the the service description:

[…] We’ll also create activity with some of the new subscribers, like a few upvotes or a comment to a post.

We were actually already doing that, it just wasn’t specified clearly.

Quora Upvote – new price $0.99, down from $1

This might not seem like much, but we have some clients with huge volume on Quora for which it will matter. There’s also the next discount for them:

Quora Question Follow – new price $0.89, down from $1

And to some of our lower volume services:

Indie Hackers Upvote (max 5/post) – new price $1.39, down from $1.49

GrowthHackers Comment and Indie Hackers Comment – new price $3.95, down from $4.5

GrowthHackers Post and Indie Hackers Post – new price $13.5, down from $15

That’s it, nothing else will get a discount. We’re hoping that these will suffice in order for us to maintain a similar work volume throughout the next months of chaos.

If it’s ends up not being enough, we’ll begin studying molecular biology in order to defeat COVID-19 ourselves.
