    Learn how to draw in your audience and force them to read what you write.

    This is no joke and that headline is intended as an object lesson. You experienced writers out there will no doubt understand what's about to happen. But those of you who are new to this world, wake up.

    You're about to learn something. A small thing. But oh my, is it important.


    Have you ever bought something and as you were driving home or walking through the mall, bag in hand, smiling and whistling on the way to the next store, you "wake up" and realize that you just spent money and you can't explain-- even to yourself-- why you did it?

    Of course you have. You're human. I've done it. I bought a $350 cell phone last weekend and I still don't know why. We've all done it.

    You were... well there are many ways to describe it. Here are a few I've used on myself: mezmerized, spellbound, hypnotized, taken, punked and used.

    Used.

    By something or someone.

    And they gently, quietly, with such a soft and subtle, sweet and tender touch lifted your credit card out of your wallet and paid for the... thingymabob.

    And you never even realized it.

    We've all been there. The REASON we've been there is because the words that we saw or heard were exactly the right ones, delivered in exactly the right way, at exactly the right moment to take us away... to lead us into a state of mind of peace and happiness and yes, even lust, for what we thought we wanted or needed.

    Did you know that there is a an exact, scientific method for making a human being feel and react a certain way?

    Would you like a demonstration?

    Proof?

    Very well.

    When I was a child, I was bitten by my neighbor's Doberman pincer. Now before you feel bad for me, keep in mind that it wasn't his fault. He wasn't mean. He was beautiful. He was huge and warm and black and red. His coat was shiny and smooth to the touch. I loved him and he was happy and goofy and I invented a word for how he walked: galumph. He "galumphed" across the yard; he didn't walk. He had his own way and I loved him. He even smelled a bit "doggy" and had Alpo breath.

    Sure, this is a stupid story, but let me ask you this:

    Can you see and hear and smell the moment? Do you have your own words and memories and ideas that correspond to this tale?

    He bit me because he wanted my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It was blackberry jelly, tangy and tart and it made those little muscles in the corner of my jaw go tight and it was incredible. I remember smelling it and my mouth watering and when Poco, the Doberman, wanted a taste I swatted him on the nose, so he nipped me. It didn't break the skin; he just wanted me to know he wasn't happy with me.

    Can you see it in your mind.?

    Did your mouth just start watering at the thought of that first, sparkling touch of blackberry jam on your tongue?

    I absolutely guarantee that most of you saw, heard, felt and tasted something that had you in an emotional state that you haven't felt in years as you read this.

    And guess what:

    4% of you would buy whatever the hell I tried to sell you next.

    And that is why if you want to learn how to make money online, you need to learn to do what I just did to you.

    There is a secret. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that "hard work" will get you there. There is a secret. Anyone can have it, and hard work is part of it, but without the rest... you could literally waste a lifetime of hard work and get nowhere.

    And when you know the secret, your life will never be the same. You can't go back to not knowing what it is. And you absolutely will not want to go back.

    You know that this secret exists... you've felt its power your whole life; hell, you probably even realize what I'm about to say to you... You've bought things you didn't really want, but couldn't say why, and you know somewhere deep inside that this was done to you by... someone.

    You feel it every time you walk into a store, past a display, when you watch tv and see a commercial.

    You WANT things.

    You almost need them.

    And you can't explain why.

    Do you want to know?

    Add your name to this thread, and if enough people show up, I'll tell you how to find out what this thing is, this magic, this compulsion, this drive that is, even now, making your heart thump a little harder than it was a minute ago.

    You believe that what I've said exists because you've felt it.

    You think that I'm a dick, but still... something... is making you wonder if this time you might find out the truth. You might just learn how to make other people feel just like you do right now.

    Wouldn't that be an incredible thing?

    If you could only...

    Add your vote to the thread. If there are enough people who want to know, I'll show you how.

    It's easy to do, but harder to learn than anything else you'll ever know.

    But if you will put in the time, everyone who doesn't know what you do will be yours. You can make their mouths water, their hearts beat faster and you can make them pull out their credit cards.

    If you know how.

    I'll show you if you add your name below.

    You are connecting with the prospect...almost making them do what you want subconsciously.

    They are saying, "YES, I HAVE felt that way. This guy GETS me."

    OK, add me to the list. I'm curious.

    Our 'user icons' are making this look like some kind of 'safety for idiots' class.

    CAUTION: AVOID DEATH (actual warning label that made headlines last week)

    Sorry for going OT.

    Hypnosis in action people. That's all it is.

    When ever you read or listen to someone or something, your subconscious mind draws you a detailed picture of exactly what they are describing weather it be an experience, a feeling, a material possession , or just about anything. This picture that you get in your mind is so powerfull that you begin to experience the exact same feeling etc that the other person has described.

    When you form a connection like this with one of your friends, family, or potential customers be it verbally or written, the other person begins to trust you as he associates his own past experiences with the ones you are mentioning, or creates new ones. The more you vividly describe events, items, and experiences the more trust the other person will have in you. It's that simple. This works because you are able to connect with the other persons subconscious mind.

    The basis of all this comes from the founding principals of hypnosis. I don't have the time to enter any further into specific details but you can learn a lot from this site here hxxp://www.convers**ational-hypnosis.com. You can download all the content here hxxp://www.convers*ational-hypnosis.com/new-course/thanks197dr.php?item=3&cbreceipt=2M7RGS3D&time=1193763382&cbpop=09A43E89&cbaffi=TAF69&cname=EMILY+LENG&cemail=SUCCESSMIND%40SINGNET.COM.SG&detail=Power_Of_Conversational_Hypnosis_16_CDs_As_MP3s+Free_Platinum_Upgrade&

    That whole long ass post was actually to fulfill a promise I made to someone in an different thread.

    The pro copy writers among us will have laughed a little at how ham fisted my original post was.

    No bullet points.
    No personal detail like a name to go with my scubaslick handle.
    No testimonials.
    etc.

    This is a marketplace full of skeptics and rule breakers and other marketers and many many of them probably just chuckled at the post and went their merry way. I wasn't aiming at them.

    To be honest, it isn't very good copy writing (I don't have a week to craft a true sales letter for something like this), but it served its purpose and got a few folks with less experience to read the thread and "buy" my product, even though you were skeptical (some of you).

    Good. This is designed for the new folks. Not the old pros (although if you're here, read on. This is a great resource no matter who you are.)

    I'm not a guru, but I do know this.

    Up until recently, the only thing you really had to work with to sell something to people over the internet were words and images. now we have video and music a bit more easily usable, but still 90% of the sales that take place on the net happen because of words.

    Copy writing is a skill. A dark art to be sure, but it is one that can be learned.

    The single best place to learn this art that I've ever run accross is

    makepeacetotalpackage(dot)com

    That's it. That's how you learn. Go. Read. Flourish.

    I have nothing to sell. No trick up my sleeve. No affiliate link.

    I just think that site is the best on the internet for learning the craft of words for selling and outside of the circle of copy writers you never see it mentioned.

    So peek behind the curtain.

    Clayton Makepeace is considered by many, many, many people to be the greatest copy writer who ever lived. He gives it all away.

    Enjoy.

    Sorry ty180sx. I know I cheated a bit since I already gave this to you, and this is the post I promised. I hope you guys all get something out of it. Even if it does nothing but help you hire better copy writers than you would have, it's worth a visit once a week just to see what's up.

    Yeah, what is this thread about? Are you a Clayton Makepeace fanboy or something? The greatest copywriter who ever lived? I guess he sold you on that one.

    There's lots of great copywriters - some probably better than him - and they all have great free resources as well, here's a couple:

    Gary Bencivenga - http://bencivengabullets.com/archive.asp

    Gary Halbert - http://www.thegaryhalbertletter.com/newsletter-archives.htm

    John Carlton - http://www.marketingrebelrant.com/

    Those are some of my favorites. I have all of Clayton's stuff - Should I share it here?

    The "point" was to get people who don't even know what the term "copy writing" actually means to start studying.

    I think I might have hinted at that when I said:

    I said clearly there was nothing to sell and that I had nothing to gain when I said:

    I didn't say I thought he was the greatest. I said:

    In other words, it's a starting place, a resource. If you read it you will start learning names like:

    And Joe Sugarman and Yanik Silver and etc etc etc

    It's a place for people who don't even realize how they've been manipulated to learn the art and science of manipulating others.

    So I don't know what you're fucking problem is, but moderator or not, I'm going to ask you to lighten up a bit. I'm trying to help. If that's something that you feel should be attacked, let me know and I'll spend my time on another forum trying to help people who actually give a fuck.

    Are you just having a PMS moment? You need a hug bro?

    It's the holidays, I can hook you up.

    /hug!

    PS: defintely share his stuff. Especially his swipe file if you have it.

    You're about to piss me off with that PMS comment. I don't like reading a post for an hour trying to figure out if someone's up to something or not. Be straightforward in your posts instead of vague. Don't ever patronize me again.
