Am I Really That Stupid… What Do You Think? businessinternet businessbusiness coursesbusiness suicidecopywriting courseslatest crazemoney maker

In a world where advertising, and copywriting in particular, is used to grab your attention, keep it and then entice you to buy a product, I routinely write headlines which may seem like business suicide.

And, indeed, they probably are.

However… for too long a time I suffered because I read some amazing sales letters and bought everything I saw.

Every other product seemed to be the answer to making riches on the internet.

I’d buy one product and, before I got half way through another would come out with a headline and sales copy which made it almost impossible to ignore.

So, I bought that, as well.

Before I knew it, I was in debt from buying money-making products.

Ironic, huh?

Don’t get me wrong… I’m not saying the products are dud, not by a long shot.

I’ve got quite a few business courses, copywriting courses, etc, sitting on my shelf… and I’m even using them now… but, at the time, I didn’t need all of them.

And I especially did not need all of them at that time.

Unfortunately, when you’re new to this type of thing it’s easy to be caught up in the latest craze, or the latest ‘new’ money-maker to come out.

What I’m trying to say is, if the newer guys and gals out there are struggling to start their own businesses, I don’t want to be responsible for their getting into debt because they’re buying everything that comes out.

I do promote a few things but, they’re only things I genuinely believe in.

There may be times when I don’t bother promoting anything at all while at other times I’m promoting three or four things at once.

My reason for that is sometimes some products come out which can be used in synergy, meaning they compliment each other.

Other times it could just be that they are all good, but the price range could be right for one group of people and too much for another…

So, I’m giving them a choice of what they can go for depending on their budget.

However, one thing I can say is that everything I promote is, I believe, worth the price it’s going for.

Now, to why I’m writing this post…

I wrote an email earlier today to my list which had an headline which even I would admit was definitely business suicide.

And I thought long and hard before I sent it out.

One of my readers (ex-reader: he chose to take me up on my offer) even went as far as to tell me he thought it was a stupid headline.

He is, of course, entitled to his opinion.

And I happen to think he’s right.

That is the only opt-out I’ve had, though… so far.

I had another reader emailing me and actually complimenting, so that was nice

And I genuinely appreciate those comments – the positives and the negatives – as they force me to think about what I do.

I still believe I was right, but I know a lot of people will think I’m stupid to do it.

So what’s new?

Anyway, here’s that email:

xxxxx, If I’m lying i insist you opt out of my list, okay?

Hi xxxxx,

That’s gotta be the boldest headline you’ve seen, eh? I really hope you don’t take me up on it till you’ve checked out what I have to offer.

Believe it or not, I don’t make the huge amounts of money others claim to.

Yes, there are a few people who do make those types of income but I’m not one of them.

Why?

Because, and I realise everyone probably tells you this, I run my business on 100% integrity.

I refuse to do things which deceive you, my readers, for my gain.

I send you links to products I feel would be of benefit to you and your business, if you use them.

And, yes, I make money if you get them.

Heck, who isn’t doing business online to make money?

Apart from the charities, of course…

No, wait, even they’re in it for the money… although it’s for a different cause.

Anyway, why am I telling you all this?

Because I’m about to give you a few links where you can get some genuine products… for nothing.

Please check them out as you would be passing up some great products.

And, like I said, if you feel i’m conning you, feel free to opt out of my lists.

Why am I saying that?

Because I don’t want you reading email from a con-man and, if you do feel I’m deceiving you, in your eyes that’s exactly what I’d be.

I know I risk losing you from my list but I only truly want people to read my work if they trust me.

I can’t be any more honest than that, can I?

You may be wondering why I’m giving you so many links… Well, its’ not so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

I genuinely believe all of these products work hand in hand and you can make use of them all.

All I ask is that you tell as many people as you can about these no cost products.

All the best,
Marko

So, what do YOU think?

Am I right, or am I just a freakin’ stupid muppet who needs his head examined?

Don’t hold back… give it to me straight.
