    Following on from the previous method I posted (The Security/Character Attack), I?ve been busy preparing to launch a new UK drop shipping company but as promised here is another ?new?/original method. This method is untested as I do not have time at the moment, but should convert well.

    Goal: To get people to sign up to a Credit Card CPA/Purchase offer

    Market: This method is generally good for physical products, or other offers where people have to part with cash.

    This method relies on you identifying a pain they have that you can solve, for my example I am going to use e-Cigarettes.

    Psychology: This method uses curiosity to get inside their head, people do not like not knowing the answer to something as it literally implies that they are stupid. And how many people do you know that like being called stupid? So it makes them eager to prove to you that they are not stupid.

    In fact people love the opposite, people love being smarter than others, just think about how many people boast about ?how they are smarter because?. We make them feel like they are smarter than everyone else, or even more ego inflating smarter than a big organisation/government.

    EXAMPLE: e-cigarettes ? we take the role of a non-smoker getting rid of fags (cigarettes)

    1. Post ad?s looking for people that smoke that want to get some free cig?s ? use a story like ?My dad died and I am clearing his cigs cuz he buys in bulk once a year, no-one else in my family smokes and I?d rather someone got some pleasure from them...? ? obviously you will need to write this yourself.

    2. Respond with something like

    You will get people emailing you back saying it's ok that you've given them away already and they forgive you and also messages of sympathy for your dad etc. Use this chance to drive home the message.

    I am sure quite a few people will convert with these triggers, and these triggers can be applied to any product out there. If you are marketing to the UK, you can adapt this method to smoking inside the pubs/clubs which is illegal, and say how you thought it was unfair you had to go out in the rain at winter when this other guy was smoking inside and you found out how...
    Remember, twist the method, rewrite the messages/ad?s and find a good offer. Let me know how you get on.

    I had the same idea last month, but it wasn't as well done as yours. I learned something new. Kudos!

    This guy/gal has got a great track-record of really laying out not only a method, but also the reasons it is effective. I'd stalk his/her threads if I were totally new to IM.

    Nope, I thought about studying Psychology but I hate studying stuff I already know. I just sit, think and dream. You just have to remember everything in life is done for a reason, you just need to find that reason.

    I do study BioVeterinary science as I'd love to become a vet one day :p

    Thanks, only recently started posting methods as I've not found much unique/new stuff recently.

    That works well..

    Try opening non profit organizations and get established... You will get awesome results from stuff like this if you do it correctly.. Start locally then expand..

    CL is a good place to start.. Post an add for people interested in volunteering for your non-profit organization and atleast offer <affiliate> "better solutions"

    Works well

    drug addiction
    cancer
    high-school drop out rate
    under-privileged kids etc...
    These are just a few...

    dont be cruel actually make these organizations and help, but it opens up a lot of room for volunteers / investors / alternative *insert affiliate url* ..

    Be careful writing that your dad died, your dad might die for real. Words have power!

    I'm sure some people will, though I hope that most will adapt it to their own needs.

    Here are some ideas that can use the same structure
    - Weights/Gym equipment - my dad doctor told him to get fit, so he did using this product
    - Sunscreen - Mom got skin cancer so doc told her to use this stuff, n it never came back

    There are thousands of ways :D

    This would be considered social manipulation.

    Isn't all marketing some form of social manipulation?
