Chapter 1099: The Closer We Are to Success, the More We Must Not Relax!

At the same time, Pei Qian was sighing in his office.
What should he do?
The champion’s skin really had nothing to do with me!
Everyone might not believe it, but FV Team had acted on their own accord. They were the ones who started it…
Pei Qian obviously saw the negative impact of the champion’s skin from the netizens’ comments.
The image of Modest, the Coin-Scattering Hedgehog, was probably going to be even more deeply rooted in people’s hearts.
What’s more, Finger Games had communicated with FV Team and changed their plans day and night. In the end, they had created such an exquisite champion skin. Yet, its popularity had been snatched away by Tengda. That was a huge blow to Finger Games!
Of course, the money made from the champion’s skin was not small.
The crux was that their mentality was a little unbearable!
Pei Qian even wanted to pay out of his own pocket to hire a psychiatrist or at least a psychiatrist to counsel Eric.
After all, not everyone had the fearless mentality of being indomitable like him. A mentally fragile person like Eric would probably collapse under heavy pressure.
Pei Qian did not want Eric to collapse.
If Eric did not want to work anymore, who knew what the next person-in-charge of the China region that Finger Games would send over would be like?
What if Finger Games saw the tragic end of the three person-in-charge of the China area, especially Eric, who had entered the palace twice, and chose to give up on the China market directly, sending random people to mess it up?
At that time, no matter how Tengda burned money, Finger Games’ new person-in-charge would not follow. Wouldn’t that be in a standstill?
How could he happily burn money then?
He could continue burning money in the overseas market but it would be too far away and not convenient.
Thus, Pei Qian could only pray in his heart, hoping that Eric would become stronger and be as brave as him, facing the dismal life and the blood.
If he had a way, Pei Qian really wanted to help Eric. Unfortunately, he could not.
The champion’s skin had already been made. Tengda had already snatched the popularity away whether it was changed or not.
It would be useless even if Pei Qian were to tell everyone not to guess blindly and clarified that this set of skin had nothing to do with Modest!
On the contrary, it might backfire and make everyone feel that it was riding on his face to mock him. It would further attack Eric’s mentality.
Eric’s mentality should have collapsed. He could not tolerate such stimulation.
Thus, Pei Qian could only choose to deal with it coldly. Out of sight, out of mind.
He could only pray that Eric could survive!
Pei Qian did not bother about the champion’s skin for now. He opened the work reports of the various departments again to check if there was any more work worth paying attention to in the future.
The snack market would officially be opened for business in the following week.
Pei Qian had no confidence in the snack market at all. The snack market was similar to the experience shop to Meng Chang after all. It was a surefire project.
Meng Chang’s vision had already come true in the experience shop.
The snack market was most likely doomed.
However, no matter what, he still had to open for business after so long. He would rather grit their teeth and earn money than delay or affect the settlement.
Even if it really became popular and made huge profits, he could only grit his teeth and bear it.
However, when it came to Meng Chang…
Pei Qian opened his calendar and realized that it had been almost two weeks since Meng Chang officially promoted Zhongdian Chinese Network’s inspiration class.
The proposal was released last week. The publicity plan was especially simple, it was just a picture. Thus, it spread out very quickly.
By next Monday, this publicity plan would have been published for two full weeks. No matter the final outcome, Meng Chang would be able to obtain a commission. That was a total of 7,000 yuan with a basic salary of 5,000 yuan and a guaranteed commission of 2,000 yuan.
It might not be a lot but it was double for Meng Chang who could only get a basic salary of 3,000 yuan previously.
What’s more, the 2,000 yuan guaranteed commission was not only about money, but also about his pride!
Meng Chang had always prided himself as a master at publicity and psychology. He thought that he could play with the netizens’ attention and easily create a lot of popularity.
However, after coming to Tengda, he failed time and time again. He became less and less courageous.
This was a heavy blow to Meng Chang’s values.
Getting this 2,000 yuan guaranteed commission would greatly boost Meng Chang’s confidence, give him confidence and enthusiasm, and pour more energy into the future publicity plan.
There were still four days to this critical moment.
It was already Wednesday. He would be able to get the commission after this Sunday.
From the current situation, Meng Chang’s publicity plan could be said to be very successful.
That ugly picture really did not cause much of a stir. Even if there were discussions, they were all about how ugly this picture was.
Some netizens felt that this publicity plan might have been outsourced to outsiders, so the picture was ugly and the publicity method was not novel. The most important thing was that they did not understand the industry data at all and became a joke.
He was actually exposing their shortcomings and making a fool of themselves by putting the statistics of these works out.
If he maintained this momentum until the end of the month, Meng Chang might be able to get a commission of tens of thousands.
However, Pei Qian felt uneasy.
Where did this strange sense of danger come from?
Perhaps it was because Pei Qian failed countless times on the night before success…
Thinking back, Pei Qian was once a hot-blooded young man like Meng Chang, but he always felt lucky.
He would always feel there would be no problem as long as the project continued to incur losses every time when the settlement was right around the corner!
However, whenever he thought about it this way, loss-making projects would suddenly become popular for no reason!
Was this a coincidence or a trick by fate?
Pei Qian could not explain it clearly.
However, after suffering so many times, Pei Qian finally understood a simple principle: The more he was nearing success, the more he had to put in 120% effort and make sufficient preparations.
As for Meng Chang…
He probably did not understand it so well.
Thus, Pei Qian felt that he had a duty to remind him as someone who had been through this before. That would save him from being too complacent and losing everything at the last minute.
Pei Qian picked up his cell phone and sighed silently.
It hasn’t been easy for me!
Not only did he have to adjust his mentality, but he also had to constantly help Eric and Meng Chang adjust their mentalities. He was afraid that they would suddenly collapse and not play with him.
However, who would know about Boss Pei’s pain?
Soon, the call went through.
“Hello? Boss Pei?”
Meng Chang sounded relaxed and relieved.
Obviously, after more than a week of anxiety, he realized that his plan was very successful. He did not attract any unnecessary attention. Thus, he gradually relaxed.
Pei Qian asked, “How’s your publicity plan?”
Meng Chang smiled and answered, “It is going quite smoothly thanks to Boss Pei.”
“In particular, your request for the various departments within Tengda to keep the development of the works of the inspiration class a secret was a huge help!”
“What’s more, I can follow the regulations for internal leaks and commission. That gives me a lot of comfort. I can now formulate the publicity plan in a calmer state.”
Meng Chang reminded himself constantly that he had to be cautious, cautious, and cautious against an old fox like Boss Pei.
However, Boss Pei had indeed helped him a lot this time…
If Boss Pei had not blocked the loophole in time, he would probably not be able to bear the consequences once the internal department leaked the development of the works of the inspiration class.
Meng Chang broke out in cold sweat when he heard that Tengda Games had already begun preparations for the downloadable content ‘Eternal Reincarnation’.
If this news were to spread, the attention of the entire inspiration class would definitely skyrocket!
At that time, the publicity funds that he had spent and the ugly publicity picture would probably become a burning flame. The situation would definitely be out of control.
Fortunately, Tengda’s internal security was good.
Therefore, Meng Chang gradually relaxed. He was in a happy and relaxed state, seeing that he would be able to get the commission in three or four days.
Pei Qian immediately had a bad feeling.
A proud soldier would lose!
Meng Chang’s state was obviously because he did not have an objective understanding of the laws of causality in this world. He did not realize the seriousness of the problem.
Pei Qian immediately said in a very serious tone, “Your mentality is very dangerous!”
“Indeed, there are only four days left until you get the guaranteed commission. However, don’t forget that the closer one is to completing a task, the tougher it gets!”
“The publicity plan has been thrown out for more than a week. The publicity budget has also been spent a lot. It might not seem very popular on the surface, but in fact, it has already planted a seed in the hearts of netizens.”
“The current state looks like a scene of singing and dancing, but in fact, danger is everywhere. It’s the most dangerous time!”
“How many times did you fail at the last minute? Have you forgotten the pain?”
“You have to be more alert and cautious especially during such times!”
Pei Qian’s words stunned Meng Chang.
The tone and content were very normal, but why did it feel like something was amiss…
Meng Chang felt a little strange but he realized that what Boss Pei said was quite right after seriously thinking about it!
How many times had he failed at the last minute?
He should not let his guard down especially during such a period!
It was like a bucket of cold water had been poured over Meng Chang. He immediately felt enlightened. He stopped being lazy and optimistic. Instead, he became serious.
“Yes, Boss Pei, you’re right!”
“I’ll pay attention!”
“However… how should I be cautious…”
