Let me tell you a story about my “silent” business partner:
(My long-suffering dog.)
I’ve had several leaks in the roof over my master bedroom for almost a year now (walls torn out, buckets of water filling up every time it rains, the works). And, the HOA here finally found a competent roofer that understands the coastal weather patterns.
Anyway, that roofer came over the other day.
And, when he rang the door bell Zoe was at the door instantly.
As I let the roofer in I said:
“Zoe! Get back! I just cleaned up the blood from the last roofer!”
For a second the guy looked genuinely worried.
And, I got a bit of a kick out of that.
As a professional communicator (and that is what you are if you write copy, emails, speak, make videos, do podcasts, etc) I like to “jolt” people and constantly practice jolting people.
I do it when I speak at events.
I do it when people come over.
And, yes, I do it in my emails.
And you know what?
It’s one of those things that can make you a lot more sales — regardless of what kind of medium you use to sell with.
Enter the January “Email Players” issue.
It goes to print soon.
And, one of the many lessons inside is a way to jolt your email readers using my “Needs More Gore!” philosophy I taught a group of mastermind students at Greg Gomez III’s summit during Labor Day weekend that practically everyone in that room told me completely changed the way they go about getting attention from their leads.
It’s not complicated stuff.
Nor is it “ninja” or “cool” or even exciting.
It’s a dull blunt object (as opposed to a bright shiny object).
But, it can make you lots more sales.
That is, if you subscribe in time to get the January issue.
