Demise of Hotmail

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 Heba Moeen 8 Comments

I have many users,
yet I am alone.
My positioning strategy was perfect,
now I don't know what's wrong!
Viral marketing worked well,
assuming; in the inbox, people will now dwell.
If space is what you need,
I also give 5 GB . . . 
Why are my competitors taking the lead?
I think whether my existence 'was' or 'will be' . . .
I tried to scare people that they will be charged,
'Damn you ! We have options', they said.
In with a professional stunt Gmail barged !
Oh ! I just wept and bled.
You can manage 'junk',
then why rely on Gmail spam free account?
Now my market share has just shrunk,
I swear, please stay I won't charge you any amount.
I have a cool messenger,
then why do you return after ages?
What's there in Gtalk? I ask.
Am I only left for your class e-groups?
oh I'm tangled in competitors' loops . . .
Come back ! Come back ! Come back!
