    Dear Successful Black Hat Folks who are making profits online with Black Hat methods:

    Just thought I'd ask for your opinion, experience, and what you are doing if you do use copywriting (or web sales copy).

    With the black hat voodoo that you folks apply, do you need to do much or even any copywriting on your webpages at all?

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    Copywriting is one of the most important skills to learn in marketing. You learn the psychology of a buyer's mind, and the proper words to make them buy. It helps in setting up landing pages, sales pages, web copy, article writing, JV emails, autoresponder emails... everything. :)

    Read the book Influence. You can find it on Amazon. You won't regret it.

    Love the feedback. Thank you, guys. And thank you to the folks who clicked on their choice in the poll.

    Please keep em coming. :)

    "Influence" is by Robert Cialdini, right? I have had the chance to read it :) Really enjoyable and illuminating.

    I also wonder if black hat folks might actually use their content to "steer" prospects (e.g. with zip, email submits, adult cam trials etc.) toward making the most desired action, i.e. as opposed to overtly using sales copy (copywriting) to "make the sale". If this is a practice for some profitable black hatters, then I thought their text content might actually appeal to "respondents" on the basis of ? :
    a) greed
    b) money
    c) sex
    d) freebies
    e) attractiveness

    etc.
