In the latest disaster, the Mighty, albeit desperate, Minuscule-thinking Soft has started paying Facebook to promote it’s offer to pay “at least $200” in credit towards purchasing an eligible Windows phone. They are even calling it a “trade up”.
It’s ridiculous to think that anyone would want to trade in a superior phone, for less than it is worth for an inferior phone that only gives people headaches and frustration. Even though I ‘Like’ Microsoft Store on Facebook – I don’t want to see these types of posts – even if they are good for a chuckle.
Promoted posts like these make me feel like Microsoft thinks that all consumers are idiots – and I just don’t buy into that.
What say you? Do you like the promotion? Do you think that it’s a good idea for them to be paying for ads on Facebook to promote it? Do you have and prefer a Windows phone over an iPhone? I’d love to know …
