Rude people really make me furious.
You may recall, I announced yesterday the release of the 2nd Video in our PPC Supremacy launch series. If you’re lucky, you might have even had the privilege of watching the videos.
I’d hate for you to think that i’m being arrogant in calling it a privilege.
So I’d like a chance to explain.
I have seen the absolute CRAP the market has to offer at launch time. The MLM industry in particular tends to go on about providing “value” and towing the free line and all that crap…but
it’s all talk.
Few people if any put out any real usable, valuable content in a launch. It’s always a sales pitch or testimonial video with fudged numbers and screenshots upon screenshots of doctored proof. All disguised as “free content” and “free training”.
It’s INSULTING to mine and your intelligence.
And i don’t buy from people less intelligent than I am.
Especially that they assume I won’t see through the bullshit. If a “guru” or a marketer cannot respect their audience, i don’t think they deserve to be given my money. Give them yours if you want, though.
It’s why you don’t see me preaching that you should buy courses to succeed in online marketing. Buy them if you want to. But it’s no secret…i did not and do NOT buy their courses.
In fact, I own 2 courses from inside the MLM industry. The businesses i want to model after are MARKETERS not salesmen.
And MLM is FULLLLLL of downright sales people who call themselves marketers.
Despite only having two marketing courses from the MLM industry (both by the same author), I’ve still done pretty alright for myself. Pretty sure anyone can do the same too if they really wanted to.
The Guy Who Pissed Me Off
You have to know this. Every time I post a video, article, or email, I’m checking out the feedback–reading every single comment, and watching every alert. Unfortunately that doesn’t always mean i see JUST positive stuff.
At first it makes me angry. Naturally.
But then i mull it over and consider if it was somehow true.
Well, yesterday, after we posted the second video in our series, I kept watching the comments roll in. And I saw one guy who went to elaborate lengths to tell us how frustrated he was with the length of the free content-packed video.
And yes. He was rude.
And yes. He made me angry.
But i wasn’t mad for long. Because he was right to some degree–but I’ll get back to that in a second.
It wasn’t his message that really burned me.
Another comment later in the day came from a guy who simply wrote:
“you paint a pretty picture, but it’s still pie in the sky”
I was stunned by the comment. Because alright, we are not professional film producers, graphic designers, or web developers. And we didn’t get degrees in education, communication, or English.
But the video explained a technique that brought us more leads in 60 days and far more responsive prospects than most of the so-called gurus in the industry.
Not only that–the actual page we used to accomplish this was given away in its EXACT form. Along with an explanation of the technique and why it works. Free. No missing pieces.
And this guy had the audacity to call it “pie in the sky”.
A pie in the sky, as i understand it…is something unattainable. Yet the template with directions on how to customise it was there to download. Free. It was extremely attainable.
Not only that. But for proof, we show-cased an ordinary guy who we spoke to for 10 minutes…at a social dinner conversation while visiting San Diego a couple of weeks ago…he went on to dramatically increase his leads the very next day on his own. Without our help beyond that casual conversation.
I’d say that’s attainable
And we didn’t showcase the proof as a sales pitch. All we wanted to achieve was to empower our viewers so they would have the confidence to go try the simple idea we shared in the video, knowing it works!
Finally, the video show-cased two multi-millionaire “gurus” who copied verbatim the template from us – and generated thousands of leads as a result. They too were shown only to empower the viewer.
I say, that’s attainable.
I Banned Him
Needless to say, it made me angry to read that comment.
I instantly banned him from our launch website. He did not deserve our value. I hope he never buys PPC Supremacy because he does not deserve it. There. I said it.
We Do Not Create Fair Exchange
My business partner David and I, we have a philosophy. We do not create fair exchange.
In fact, we aim to create an unfair one. So our students will always feel like they owe us something, not the other way around.
And if you genuinely respect your downline, partners, or subscribers, teach them something.
Teach them something real. Put all of you into every conversation you have, even if you rather get paid to talk about your “secrets”.
Create something you can be proud of. Even if it is just a “promo” video or a free interview, or an article to get leads.
And to address the first guy’s comment, David’s gone back and edited the video and made it shorter. Because the first guy,
even though he was unappreciative and rude, he was right.
the second guy with the pie in the sky was wrong. He needs someone to wire him some money.
