Must be something in the water…
“Ben, I love your aggressive way you market your product, but your product better work, or yes I do want my money back. Those days are over! Nobody is giving money over for b/s, I make money in the virtual world and the physical world the same way my shit work. I’m on your list, but you haven’t ever given me a slight example of something I would buy from you. Don’t waste my time, and I want waste yours. I’m learning this marketing thing. But the secret is to show me something that I just got to have. I spent 2,000 on a product. I just spent 197.000 on another product. I got some money, show me something I can use. I’m looking at [big name IM guru]‘s product, another 2,000 dollars, I’m eyeing his shit, because an untrained monkey can sort of see from his example that he knows what the hell he is talking about. He got me re-arranging my finances to buy his product. And hell no he can’t get it back, I’m gonna make sure of that. He couldn’t call me back and ask to pay double to get it back!”
Of course, I told him to PLEASE buy from the other guy.
And, in fact, he’s now forbidden to buy from me, anyway.
Because he’s announced he’ll be a pain in the gluteus assimus. My mind automatically decodes these comments like Neo decoding the Matrix.
And here’s what I see:
“I do want my money back” = “I plan refunds before buying”
“I have money” = “I’m in credit card debt”
“Nobody is giving money over for BS” = “I’m a gullible goo-roo fanboy”
“you haven’t demonstrated any reason for me to buy from you” = “Send me MORE free stuff”
“The secret is showing me something I just got to have” = “lie to me”
Hey, laugh all you want.
But anyone who’s been in business long enough knows I speaketh the trufe about this.
Anyway, I’m changing things up today.
I’m NOT plugging my newsletter.
Instead, I’m plugging someone else’s list who does awesome emails. Who’s one of the few truly brilliant business minds of our age. And, who will teach you all kinds of cool stuff.
That person is…
Traffic/lead generation master.
And “for real” business owner (he even wrote a corporate manual for his business, and runs it using interns, why didn’t I think of that???)
It costs nothing to join his list.
But, it DOES cost you not to join it.
(In my humble, but accurate, opinion…)
