    Their lives revolved around the "lottery" but it was all a con and they were being harvested for their body parts. Everyone is a winner.

    So, Mike Elgan (the least interesting member of the TWiT team) discusses the OPO and the marketing campaign with Jeff Jarvis, Gina Trapani and Leo Laporte on This Week In Google today.

    His view, we are all being punked by a sleazy company who are laughing at us.

    Have a watch and see what you think about what he says.

    Hi mate, we are just a bunch of guys/girls chatting and having fun. There is a list going with the members and whenever an invite comes our way, we share it with the active members of the thread, have a look at my signature :)

    We don't make you jump around in hopes or make you run around in circles for an invite, just friendly chats and usually you get an invite soon :)

    Marketing does not mean adverts these days. It means invite systems, competitions, attempts at viral marketing. OPO are trying all of these as they are cheap. But they are all backfiring in their own ways. Have a listen to TWiG - nothing really new in the discussion but a good summary.

    For me it's a one off thing, I'm happy with CM, trust them and have been a happy user for years. oneplus will crumble if they don't start sorting themselves out.

    Marketing is as much about brand as it the products, having a clear brand identity and using different means to raise the brand awareness.

    Now days adverts are not a big part of marketing for many companies.

    Spamming isn't going to help your cause, odunsi. Pull up a chair and have a chat. Join the list (see above) and play nice. :)

    It looks like there's a decent community, so there is some support if you look for it, marketing campaigns aren't necessary as long as people know about it, which seemingly enough people do

    When they "win" their organs are harvested.
