“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.
