Ok so I get it…
We all have typos when we’re messaging other people.
The Receiver of the message usually reads between the lines so we don’t care about it a lot.
But what if I told you that a singly typo cost companies over $150 million Dollars in business rev.
Did you remember that Amazon Servers were down last week?
A lot of major websites such as Business Insider, Quora, Chef, Citrix, Codecademy, Coursera, Cracked, Docker, Expedia, Expensify, Giphy, Heroku, Home Chef, iFixit, IFTTT, Imgur, isitdownrightnow.com, etc. were effected.
How did this happen?
Well, a certain employee tried a trick to speed up the S3 Cloud Storage Billing System and tried to take a few servers offline but instead he accidentally messed up and took down a lot of servers lol
This happened because he typed a single line of code in the wrong way.
Here’s what we must learn from this….
A lot of us Affiliate Marketers still build our landers and everything else manually through Php or Html.
We NEED To double check our codes every fucking time.
I’ve ripped off landers of other people and ran them – just to find out that their Aff link was still in it lol.
I hired a guy to spend time analyzing every line of code to make sure everything is alright.
ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS Make sure your system is functioning properly before you start the ads.
If you can’t do it yourself all the time – hire someone else to do it.
Imagine running $2,000 worth of traffic just to find out your system had an error and wasn’t functioning properly.
Don’t be an idiot – perfect the little things.
