Another Made In America Work from Home Selling Not Much Sales Pitch....
You can be proud to work from home for PC Matic, because at least it's not fake anti-virus protection from the boiler rooms of New Delhi. Nope, it's good old-fashioned home grown junk for your computer. USA! USA!
I wonder if we're supposed to believe it's legit because it's expensive- $49.99 per year, according to my research (see link below.) Based on the reviews, I'm not going for it- but I'm not a computer expert and I don't review anti-virus programs or anything else. I just snark on commercials. And this one is pretty vanilla: Trust PC Matic because it's Made in the USA. Work at home for PC Matic because your bosses are Americans. Etc, etc.
Strikes me as kind of a two-fer: Not only is this an ad for Probably Ineffective if not Damaging "antivirus protection," but it's also pitching another "make good money working from home" scheme which seems to account for at least 90% of Youtube ads these days. So both the customers AND the employees have an opportunity to get the royal shaft.
I just figured something out. The real reason why this doesn't pass the smell test is because "PC Matic" sounds a lot like "MyCleanPC" and "FinallyFast" and a lot of other fly-by-night Your PC Is Filled With Viruses Take Our Word For It Go Online and Download Team Viewer and Give Us Control Because We Popped Up on Your Screen "services." Maybe try another name, PC Matic. I suggest Patroit Clean PC or American Eagle Antivirus or Freedom PC. I also suggest you hire some rugged ex-sniper Navy Seal to sell your product instead of this creepy old guy. But what do I know about marketing.
Here's the reviews. Not all that surprised this page doesn't allow comments after seeing this:
