Mothers Day Special fallout – Watch one very surprised mum get an SEO ebook for Mothers Day

May 18, 2010 •

2011 Update: I’m running this Mothers Day Special again this year. If you’d like to see your mum as baffled as the lovely lady below, buy her an ebook (or two) about SEO, for only $20…

Remember my Mothers Day ebook special? Where I reduced my ebooks to $10 each? And where I said anyone who actually gave the ebooks to their mum, and filmed the event (complete with an explanation of what they are and why she’s getting them) would get a full refund? Well here’s the fallout. Watch and laugh as Matt MacIntosh’s very surprised mums get an SEO ebook for Mothers Day!

“Mom, I brought you a second Mothers Day gift…”

And here’s Matt’s blog post on the matter, which is quite entertaining in itself! Thanks Matt, great work!

This is great! I imagine my mom would have given me that blank stare as well had I done something like this.

I know. I can imagine my mum too. Although she probably would have sworn at me!

This is hilarious! My mum isn't even sure how to turn the computer on, let alone optimise her website using Glenn's techniques.

Thanks, everybody! I just let my mom know that her video has received 77 views in the past 48 hours. She always dreamed of being famous... although I'm not sure this is how she hoped it would go down. I reminded her that are far more embarrassing ways to gain notoriety... remember Divine Brown??

I know. She's such a good sport, but so clearly unenthused. I remember watching the vid with my wife last year, and laughing (squeaking) so hard in her ear I nearly deafened her!

That's really sweet! Too funny! I could just see my mother having the same reaction. That was really nice.
