I was browsing my bookshelf the other night, looking for something to start.
(I have more unfinished books than I have fully-read books. Not every book is worth finishing, I’ve learned… though many I plan to return to… I think…)

I pulled down my worn copy of The Ultimate Sales Letter and Continue reading “7 things you’ll learn in Dan Kennedy’s “The Ultimate Sales Letter”“
I’m not entirely sure when I first heard about copywriter Ben Settle from BenSettle.com. I signed up for his daily email list in July of 2018, some 10 months ago. I’ve since received over 600 emails from him.

appeal, I’ve not historically been good at selling things to people. (Or at least that’s the story I’ve told myself!)
The last time I was trying to “sell” (as a career) was during the down economy in the early 2000s.
No one was buying, and I wasn’t making any money trying.
I’m an introvert, mostly — again, one of the things that I tell myself. I’ve practiced becoming more extroverted. I’ve intentionally put myself into situations where I need to be more extroverted.
One reason I’m drawn to persuasion because I see it as a way to interact with people. It allows me to better understand their motivations and behaviors, and to better connect with them. It pushes me to do so.
Sales, on the other hand, is a whole different beast of persuasion. To be “salesy” meant Continue reading “10 Things You’ll Learn From “The Secret of Selling Anything” by Harry Browne”
