Well basically it is a matter of attraction. Men are bound to fantasize their emotions whereas the women, she will always be jealous of the image. :D

So its a great marketing strategy...

To be honest, I don't think a couple of low quality gifs of women who are, frankly, not especially attractive, will make much difference to a man's sexual inclinations. The idea is that they show people who are happy to help you, and perhaps it is easier for both men and women, generally, to believe subconsciously that a woman will be more willing to help. I don't know. Often, they will also show smiling business men who are overjoyed that their web hosts are providing a modicum of service -- enabling their business to function.

Yes..that is so true. However, in the end it is the service that matters though. ;)

I agree, it's the service that matters more. Excellent service will automatically spread the word for you and get you a good amount of referral sign-ups.

Haha! :lol:
