Your Daily Email Addiction

Filed under: Email Marketing

One of the valuable things the October “Email Players” issue (which goes to the printer later on today) contains is my official “troll response” swipe file.

I compiled this for my subscribers to study, model, and adapt.

(Not copy & paste)

And, it contains 18 pages (making up 8 separate emails) of some of the most profitable emails I’ve used to make out like a bandit from everyone from a garden variety troll whose heart was filled with envy… to an outright hater wishing outright destruction on my business… to a Kindle reviewer who left a dorky 1-star review (that prompted him to change it to a 4-star review the next day)… and even someone who wrote a long email to his list saying I was a psychopath.

You’ll see the subject lines I used.

The way I used the info inside the October issue to create emails out of them.

And, how I not only shut them up, but made money from them.

Again, this issue goes to the printer later today.

After that, it’ll be too late to get it.

Today’s the deadline to get the Email Players issue that’ll send trolls, haters, and other mob-mentality boogeymen fleeing into the streets, weeping and gnashing their fangs.

Here’s what’s inside:

  • How one of my subscribers turned being bum rushed by an online mob of drooling psychopaths (and even Snopes!) out for blood into lots of sales, new traffic, and leads on her list.
  • How the great Bruce Barton used his advertising knowledge to “troll proof” the General Steel Corporation.
  • The absolute worst thing you can do if anyone launches a personal attack against you (that, unfortunately, most people do instinctively).
  • The professional pick-up artist’s secret (that is also used by President Trump almost every week) to turning the tables on anyone who mocks, insults, or accuses you in an attempt to tarnish your name or business reputation.
  • 8 words any man can use to calm down a seething angry wife or girlfriend! (Nothing to do with business or marketing, but if you’re a man, these 8 words can make for a far more pleasant time with your woman.)
  • A 7-step battle plan for shutting the yaps while making money off any trolls who try to smear your name, your reputation, or your business dealings.
  • The secret psychology behind turning personal attacks into big paydays.
  • 2 copyright-free email templates (you can use, modify, or adapt however you like) for making money off of anyone who calls you a nazi or any other label intended to ruin your credibility and reputation. (Can also be used as social media posts, too.)
  • 3 “real life” examples of how trolls and SJWs attack businesses, and how to turn those attacks into money in the bank.
  • What exactly to do to make a windfall whenever someone uses YouTube to put you on blast.
  • The real reason so many amateur trolls (in the online marketing world especially) are making videos trying to attack marketers with bigger names and reputations. (HINT: A certain guru taught some people to do it, and a few fruitcakes with nothing to lose decided to run with it.)


I am also including a bonus “Ravings of an Adman” training containing a special sale structure you can use to make a small windfall this Halloween, as well as an 18-page “troll response” swipe file of proven-to-work emails I’ve written that you can adapt (not copy & paste verbatim, only losers do that) for your own troll-to-sales flipping endeavors.

I’m sending this issue in to the printer later today.

So if you want in, now’s the time.

After I send it in, it’ll be too late.

Couple weeks ago, “Email Players” subscriber Stefanie Arroyo got stalked and harassed by a mob of white hipsters on social media calling her a white supremacist (she’s not even white…), amongst other pleasantries.

And, using what I taught her, made a tidy profit from it.

Here’s how she did it (in her own words):

Over the past 24 hours, I’ve been called a racist, a white supremacist, an MLM scam artist, a Nazi, a spammer, all-around terrible person, a scumbag, a 9/11 apologist, a “garbage human,” and several other colorful things… hundreds of times.

(And that’s not Latina-drama numbers, that’s what Twitter analytics has told me—and that’s not counting subtweeted screenshots and deleted tweets.)

And, in the midst of this shytflinging in my Twitter mentions, I was able to get 3 new Biz Typology members, 2 new consulting clients—and increase my list by 10%

How did I do this, you ask?

Well, here’s what happened:

Talib Kweli, a rapper who was popular about 20 years ago, got offended when I noted by tweet that, in my disastrous foray in the NYC dating scene, most of my bad OkCupid dates were 1- fans of his and 2- white.
?Thing is: Talib doesn’t particularly like white people.

In fact, he was openly complaining about white people when I mentioned this fact—which, it turns out, he didn’t like being reminded of.

So, naturally, he called me a white supremacist and a racist—multiple times.

Then, like a good little (white) fanboys, they took upon themselves to “investigate,” where it was “discovered” (in plain sight) that I, and a few other people who were roped into this racist rodeo, have online businesses.

According to them, I am:

– A part of a MLM scheme
– Specifically, a *Nazi* MLM scheme
– Even more specifically: a Nazi MLM scheme that pays by clicks.

Not leads, or even customers or buyers—just literal clicks.

(Their evidence for this? A Facebook ads webinar that describes an ad being “10 cents per click.”)

According to their “findings,” Ben Settle is my upline—the Grand Dragon of the whole click-collecting scam—and, as a group, we were purposefully kicking the POC beehive while cackling and clicking our claws like Smaug gobbling up these shiny click-coins.

And, with their troll-like, bulbous eyes glittering over their new-found treasure, they went to town—tweeting and subtweeting me left and right about my slimy, scummy MLM business, my terrible taste and broken moral compass, being a “garbage human,” and being a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad, white racist.

Because, according to them, I’m also laughably, horribly white.

(Which, if you didn’t know by now, I’m not.)

But, of course, as a good little MLMer, I learned from my wizard upline Ben Settle’s teachings. Specifically:

If you’re going to be painted a villain, you might as well play the part well.

Now, much to Talib’s chagrin, I didn’t burn a cross on Ben’s yard. But, if I am going to be “trolling for clicks,” I made sure that they had the right URL.

Amusing stuff.

And, this sort of thing is only becoming more and more common on social media, and from anyone who even has an email list — where these creepy SJW-types are now stalking people, trying to dox people, and have nothing but time between watching pourno and eating cheetos in their moms’ basements to attack whoever offends their fascist sensibilities.

All of which is good for you and me.


Because, as Stefanie and several other “Email Players” subscribers are find out, profiting from these dorks is not only easy, but far more rewarding than they could possibly have imagined.

Enter the October “Email Players” issue.

(Which goes to the printer tomorrow.)

I show you how to turn attacks (whether from political nutcases or just harmless trolls) into sales, with case studies and an 18-page swipe file of my most profitable “troll response” emails you can study, model, and adapt (not copy & paste) for your own situations.

But, not it won’t just help you get lots of sales.

It can also help you get lots of long term customers and other business, too.

There is simply no reason to fear the online troll and hater boogeyman. Especially when there is so much profit in turning its nonsense into cold, hard, cash in your hot little hand.

But time is short to get the October issue.

I am sending it to the printer tomorrow.

After that?

It’ll be too late.

Once upon a time (a few months ago) an “Email Players” subscriber in the prepper niche got into some, uhm… hot water… with the SJWs and media — including Snopes.

Basically what happened was this:

She wrote an article about water regulations in California.

It ended up going viral.

And, she was attacked by a mob (online — with even Snopes jumping in to try to debunk her) of foaming-at-the-mouth SJWs — specifically the mentally unstable and low IQ ones who think anyone who disagrees with even the most draconian and idiotic government environmental regulations wants Mordor. And, then, predictably, these nut cases wished death by dehydration and other pleasantries on her and her children.

Yay SJWs.

Anyway, here’s the point:

My subscriber was no dummy.

She used the energy of the mob to her advantage to get featured on 3 radio interviews, gained an additional 2000 or so subscribers to her list, and got herself quoted on several mainstream outlets, which advanced the Alexa rankings of her site dramatically, and gave her enough fodder and residual traffic that she was able to take the rest of the week off.


She did it in a very clever, but simple, way.

A way anyone reading this email could “adapt” to their business if you ever get attacked like this.

A way detailed (in her own words) on page 6 in the October “Email Players” issue.

This is extremely valuable information.

Especially if you are even slightly right-of-center politically — where you are always going to be at risk of being attacked by the rising number of SJW hooligans and even big media companies looking to de-platform you.

A little while back, I got a testimonial from one of the single best Twitter marketers I’ve ever seen:

The notorious Bryan Sharpe (AKA Hotep Jesus).

I’ll be writing more about him in future emails, but for now, he gained a lot of glorious notoriety when he trolled Starbucks earlier this year about reparations. It got him on all kinds of media — from Alex Jones to Laura Ingraham on Fox News. And, his “Hoteps BEEN Told You” show on YouTube is one of the only two podcasts I listen to.

Anyway, here’s what he told his Twitter audience about Yours Grouchy:

“There’s been a recent flood of copy writing ‘gurus’ lately and I only trust ONE! And that’s @BenSettle”


Other than for blatant self-props, there’s a reason I am bringing this up.

Hotep Jesus is also one of the single best I’ve ever seen at turning trollery into sales and to grow his audience. A topic I am teaching in depth in the upcoming October “Email Players” issue.

The deadline to get this issue is in less than 48 hours.

Grab it while the grabbins’ good here:

“Email Players” subscriber (and the original “Villain” — i.e. he was one of the founders of the site that ran the content I wrote that I eventually turned into my Villains book) Kyle Trouble recently hit the jackpot when he got flamed, attacked, and mobbed by some psychopaths on Twitter. And, he banked quite a bit of dough, added quite a bit of new people to his list, and had quite a bit of fun as a result.

How did he do it?

Well, I’ll let him tell the story:

I know you’ve been watching the carnage on Twitter…

Just got hit with the 12 hour suspension, and wanted to take a breath and say thanks.

Your advice in emails and Email Players issues about doubling down, reframing, and using haters as marketing material equipped me to blow the thing up and make a tidy little profit. And I have zero doubts any current fans became stronger, and I made a load of new ones who saw the storm and will stick around.

Not the first time it happened, took a lot of hits when I wrote at ROK, but I never knew it could be so damn juicy and profitable until I became a subscriber.

Feel free to use as testimonial.


This has been happening to a lot of people I know recently.

Across many different media platforms.

And, in some cases, relentlessly.

And you know what?

Because of this, I am dedicating the October “Email Players” issue to ways of profiting like a politician giving a speech at Goldman Sachs from when it happens to you.

And, make no mistake, it *will* eventually.

I don’t care if you are “anonymous.”

I don’t care if you “agree” politically with the mobs of SJWs doing it.

I don’t even care if you’re so liberal you burn incense at the shrine of Bernie Sanders.

Just ask far-left bomb-throwing celebrities like Will Wheaton — who apparently wasn’t left enough for the mob on Twitter, and got driven off the platform by them. (Which was, admittedly, funny, considering he got the exact same treatment he had no problem with when it happened to others.)

We are fast coming to a point where there will be only two kinds of people:

1. Those who profit from trolls, haters, and psychos online

2. Those who don’t

If you want to be in the former, the October issue will show you how.

And, it does so with three real-life case studies and an 18-page swipe file you can study, model, and adapt (not copy & paste) of some of my most profitable “troll response” emails I’ve used over the years to make a lot of easy sales from these jackanapes.

It’s not nearly as hard as you might think.

And, who knows?

You might just find yourself having a bit of fun doing it…

The deadline to get this issue is two short days from now.

Here’s where to subscribe in time:

Earlier this month, I was on a wine walk here in Bandon, when I got an email from “Email Players” subscriber, Senior fellow of the Mises Institute and New York Times Bestselling Author Tom Woods.

He had just been attacked by hip hop artist Talib Kweli on Twitter.

And, he was in the process of profiting from it.

Which he did — to the tune of making enough from Talib’s hijinks to take his family on a 5-star vacation with the proceeds.

Anyway, short story long:

It warmed the cockles of my cold nubbin of a heart watching Tom make a bunch of easy sales from being trolled by the wannabe Luke Cage of hip hop — who kept calling Tom the usual gaggle of SJW names like nazi, white supremacist or whatever.

You’d think these SJWs would have freshened up their playbook by now…

Also, Tom has continued to profit from the incident. And, not-so-coincidentally, he has been doing it by using information I taught him, that you can find inside the coming October “Email Players” issue.

Imagine that:

Making money when some blue light special tries to smear your name.

And, having a fun time while doing it…

That’s what the October issue is all about.

And, it goes to printer in just a few days.

Following is a simple way to make out like a vampire at a Red Cross clinic.

Here’s what to do:

Have a sale on a product or service you offer.

But, not just any ol’ sale.

I am talking about picking a week (any ol’ week will do) in October, and have a Halloween-themed sale structured in a way where you (1) make the most sales possible (2) do it in a way your list not only won’t mind you doing, but the buyers will probably even send you feedback thanking you for doing so.

And I believe I have discovered a way to do just that.

A way I’ve been playing with for a long time.

But, I believe I honed it in especially tight the other week when I did my “Write Supremacist” sale after the rapper Talib Kweli was gracious enough to try trolling me on Twitter, and hand me email fodder free of charge (helluva generous guy that Talib, let me tell ya…)

Anyway, the magic is in the structure of the sale.

A structure that is easy to adapt to a Halloween-themed sale next month.

A structure that is certainly not secksy, but it has big, razor-sharp teeth.

And, you can access the details in a 12-step “recipe” found inside October issue of “Email Players”, based on this real-life (ain’t no theory about it) way, which I am sending to the printer in just a few short days from now, after which it will be too late to get your claws on it.

Time is getting as short on this.

True story:

Not long ago, the owners of a well-known Boston tavern said they were victims of a misinformation campaign after a group that attended a “free speech” rally had lunch at their establishment.

What the “free speech” rally meant is was not specified in the article I read.

But, what it did say was this:

  • These free speech rally people came to eat at the tavern.
  • According to the tavern owners, “The group was quiet, nondescript. They weren’t wearing anything to show hate or anything of that nature.”
  • Shortly after, another group arrived outside and told the manager the tavern was serving neo-Nazis and demanded they be kicked out.
  • This other group of Virtue Signalers were not customers, not eating or drinking or buying anything at the tavern, just outside acting like the low class jackasses SJWs are.
  • Not a single customer inside the tavern cared or made any complaints (just the non-customer SJW mob outside).
  • The manager went outside to talk to the little psychopath SJWs and assured them no hate or whatever they were accusing the group of were doing anything other than eating.
  • The SJWs — identified as the Boston Feminists for Liberation (which, alone, should tell you something…) said on their Facebook the tavern was, “playing host to members of women hating, gay bashing, white supremacist groups.”
  • Dozens of bad reviews started pouring in to Yelp saying things like, “stay away, this bar serves Nazis openly wearing swastikas and other white supremacist symbols and intimidating other patrons.”

Yes, this was the case even though nobody was wearing swastikas.

Or white supremacist symbols.

Or anything else to identify themselves as Hitler’s little helpers.

But that didn’t stop the mob.

No sir-ee-bop.

In fact, it got so bad, Yelp had to launch what it called an “active cleanup” of the reviews that it said don’t reflect a firsthand customer experience.

(Which, again, should tell you something.)

Anyway, here is why I mention this:

To my knowledge, this tavern did nothing to capitalize on these idiots.

In fact, it looked like all they did was play the victim.

(The absolute worst thing you can do in any crisis situation.)

And it’s a pity, too.

Because, had they used elBenbo’s Email Supremacist 7 -step crisis-management plan inside the October “Email Players” issue (including 2 copyright-free email/social media posts you can use, adapt, and modify as you see fit should this happen to you) they’d have laughed at these harpies, instead of cowering to them.

Would have made a lot of money from, too.

And, would have built a much bigger and more loyal fanbase as a result.

Ah well.

Too bad for them.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t profit from their situation. To get this information in your hot little hands, and inoculate yourself — like a vaccine — against any attacks like this (or even just garden variety online review trolls) on your business, subscribe to “Email Players” before the coming deadline.

“Email Players” subscriber Alexander J.A Cortes recently tweeted:

“@BenSettle is the ONLY person I’ve directly learned how to write copy from. And his email-every-day model is what I do to a T. His newsletter is the best investment I’ve made in the my business since I started.”

Which got me to thinking:

There’s a lot of money to be made simply following my model.

And, that model is:

1. Build list
2. Mail daily forever to it
3. Put buyers on a buyers list, and sell them something else

This might be the single simplest business model ever invented.

(A concept direct mailers were using 100 years ago — just not the daily email part)

In fact, even my favorite troll (who I emailed about this morning — and that I link to in the coming October “Email Players” issue) admitted it.

Certainly the above model has been a boon for me.

And, also, many of my subscribers.

Anyway, the October Halloween issue goes to the printer soon.
