YouTube Ads Have Come Undone

This had better be a phase and move on quickly

A few months ago, I was like you. I was stuck in the unending cycle of the corporate industry. I hated my life because I could not do all the things I needed to. I was not there for my family and my children. I could not travel the world as I wanted.

Am I the only one who has thoroughly had it with YouTube ads?

The setting of these ads is mainly on the street. Someone is walking, holding their phone, and telling me how they now have the freedom to be with their family and enough money to travel to any country of their choosing.

They only have to work for 3 hours of the 24 and they make more than they made throughout their miserable career in a corporate job.

Their call to action is always just as petty as the entire ad.

Click on the link below to sign up for my training, where I will share the million-dollar formula that will transform your life. Slots are filling up instantly.

If I will watch three YouTube videos in a day, I will see this type of advert up to five times. This is a downward trend aimed at luring unsuspecting people with jobs, struggling to make ends meet. This promise of a magic potion to make their lives easier will make them click. Going down the rabbit hole of these links shows that you have to make payment after which you will be a participant in a haphazard webinar that will teach you absolutely nothing new.

I hope YouTube begins some kind of background check before accepting ads on its platform.

Have you experienced these phony ads as well?
