Your Daily Email Addiction

File under: Business Building, Email Marketing, inner game

A question about Facebook appears:

Just subscribed, thanks to Russel B’s Dot Com Secrets book. I love email, it’s our main marketing and sales channel, and I’m looking to up the frequency and regular sales, hence joining your newsletter.

Quick question: I just saw in one of your blog posts “Been almost 4 years since using any of the big free social media sites.” – We’re on them, barely ever used them properly, make crappy or zero sales from them and don’t love them, but keep getting drawn back to FB as a place ‘my people hang out so I should be there’ doing things.

We get 99% of our leads and buyers (Spanish courses) from word of mouth, our podcasts and a bit of YT, but how do I finally get the confidence/give myself permission to ditch FB? How did you give them up four years ago?

I ditched it mostly after realizing just how dumb it makes a lot of people.

In my opinion it’s the digital equivalent of the old west opium dens.

And a quick Google search will show you it was designed that way.

I’m not just talking about otherwise intelligent people who get caught up in the platform’s time suck trap. But it somehow manages to even dumb down trolls – which is quite the accomplishment considering they are already an emotionally damaged & dim-witted lot.

I doubt heavy Facebook users can really see what it’s doing to their brains, IQs, emotions, hormones, attention spans, or productivity.

In fact, they will no doubt insist they are different.

And that they can “handle” it.

After all, isn’t that what all addicts say?

But people who’ve deleted their Facebook know exactly what I speak of.

So here’s my advice:

If you really believe having a lower IQ, butchering your attention span, and catering to the dopamine addicts in your market is worth whatever benefits you are getting on Facebook then maybe you should stay there.

If not, get off there and spend that time more productively.

Like, for example:

Invest that time you currently spend reading and posting content on Facebook on writing and sending more emails, creating more offers, and doing high payout activity instead.

I have a sneaking suspicion you’ll make more sales…
