Elise’s is a flamboyant marketer from eastern Canada who teaches us “out of the box” ideas on smart eMarketing and trendy technology. Elise is a video blogger and her vlogs are both entertaining and educational. Visit her site at elisesreview.com. Elise offers up excellent marketing pieces including this one “Would you promote an affiliate product like this?”. Elise is a real person! 🙂 She openly admits to being weird and has this to say on her blog about marketing, “Screw the “guru” status in this over-hyped industry. Many of them lie and cheat their way to the top, charge ridiculous amounts of money for mediocre products, and never end up telling you the whole story. I’m not a guru, and I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong. Instead, I’ll show you truly “out of the box” stuff and give it a slap of my own colourfully opinionated and often “weird” personality and sense of humor.” I have found Elise’s blog to be a refreshing oasis in the world of online marketing.
