Got an email from a subber that’s on my fantastic and renowned insiders email group who was a bit put off.
He started off by complimenting me on my ‘positivity and genuine thought-provoking stuff’.
“I cannot help but be touched.” (Sidebar: what movie is that line from??)
Usually when I get an email that showers me with love, I know what’s coming next:
I’ve mentioned you, retweeted your tweets, and heard nothing from you. When you continued in the video how important email addresses are and sales and so on, it came across as the email of the person is purely a commodity to gain sales.
It felt very desensitized and not genuine at all. I most certainly do not ever wish to insult you, but all that video gave me, was that emails are $$$. Not people with feelings, emotions. I was very disappointed. However, this was my take on the video. It screamed ‘SALES’, and put me off completely.
In the interest of being constructive (plus it’s fun), let’s break this down…
‘I’ve mentioned you, retweeted your tweets, and heard nothing from you.’
Well, I have 17K Twitter followers. I get lots of Retweets (thank you!) and of course, oodles of lame-ass pitches and grammar so bad I get headaches and night-sweats. Thankfully, this guy actually can write. (I might need to hire him)
Plus, in some of my videos/blog posts I talk about answering emails…which I do…and I did with him.
‘When you continued in the video how important email addresses are and sales and so on, it came across as the email of the person is purely a commodity to gain sales.’
Did I come off like that? This really bothers me. Actually…no, it doesn’t. I give out more value AND entertainment than 99.9% of the ‘Wanna-be gurus’ who’s every email starts and ends with ‘profit from this weird trick…’ What weird trick? Are you pimping out your dog on Venice Beach on the weekends? *eck!*
And let’s get this straight so everyone understands: THE main goal is to make sales. This is called a BUSINESS. Having said that…I turn away people if they’re not a fit for my training. I got no problem pushing away prospects. That’s exactly why I do as well as I do.
‘It felt very desensitized and not genuine at all. I most certainly do not ever wish to insult you, but all that video gave me, was that emails are $$$. Not people with feelings, emotions.’
If I were not genuine, you’d get the ‘weird trick’ line mentioned above. Sure you meant to insult me. And I’m good with that. I like people with balls (except you ladies of course).
We all have warm fuzzy feelings. But go hug your wife for that. Again, this is business, and there’s a shitload of people in this world that have been effed over by the ‘dream of a good job and you’re taken care of blah blah blah.’ My goal (actually evil master plan) is to give people the real scoop on what it’s gonna take to make it online so they can tell their boss to jump in the proverbial prune juice.
See, this could all have been avoided if my friend here had just emailed me and asked for help. But he didn’t…because he doesn’t want help. He wants to cry.
But I actually do like him tho because he can actually write. The force might be strong in this one…
I’ll end this simply: I’m here to help those who want to be helped. Not coddled. Life is tough. Business is tougher.
Anyone who books a call with me gets the real scoop. If you want the real scoop, then you know what to do.
Now…back to my evil cave…
Who doesn't pal? If you have a rich Uncle, you're good to go. If not, then you better get real and realize that latest 'opportunity' on that Facebook group where you can make 300 bucks over and over for doing nothing is complete bullshit. ARE YOU READY TO GET REAL?? >> >> >> >>
