[8:40:28 AM] Vik: I've decided that my cat is a better marketer than I am. check this out:
[8:40:46 AM] Vik: i'm going to write a book about her
[8:41:07 AM] Vik: she knows immediately how to get me to drop anything I'm doing and give her the kibbles
[8:41:47 AM] James: I guess Purrrsuation is a form of marketing...
[8:42:07 AM] Vik: lol. seriously we can learn something from her. ask for what you want.
[8:45:54 AM] James: Ask and ye shall receive!  Somewhat related is the old "assume the sale" technique I was taught when selling books door to door during college.  I didn't do very well but it is nice to look back on.  Anyway, they told us to say - I will be in the neighborhood next week making deliveries so would you like your books delivered on Tues or Wed?  This is without them ever having to say the "yes" word.
[8:46:44 AM] Vik: well she's even better than that.
[8:47:26 AM] James: Yeah well you have love and emotion involved.  I was just a door to door salesman.
[8:48:24 AM] Vik: i'm sitting at my desk and she just lets out one meow and I know she wants food and I also know (she's trained me) that if she doesn't get it immediately she will sit on you and purr and literally put her head under the hands on my keyboard so I can't work until I feed her.  Now I know that as soon as I hear her footsteps I better get up.
[8:48:54 AM] James: Pavlov!

You simply Gotta see This (She's so cute)

[8:49:40 AM] James: Or is it Pavlov's dog in reverse?
[8:51:33 AM] James: Paul Bunyan had Sport, the Reversible Dog
[8:55:43 AM] Vik: Pavlov's cat trains her owner
[8:56:29 AM] James: Is that like eatapus complex?
[8:56:42 AM] Vik: LOL

Every once in a while there's an enigma and you simply just have to throw your hands up in the air and surrender.

Last week when my friend and business partner Scott shared with me this high converting opportunity letter, I didn't believe him - he showed me 'his' results.

I thought my e-mail list was 'dead' - I mean - people were reading my e-mails but weren't clicking on anything.

I thought all my emails were going to spam folder and nobody cared.

I thought that my 'sensible' and valuable content about SEO and marketing strategy was fantastic - why wouldn't everyone read it?

I had people calling me and saying - yeah - I have a whole file of your emails and i'll get around to them "when I have the time."

Feeling frustrated and almost ready to give up on email marketing completely and switching my focus to 100% twitter (since that's where I get most of my responsiveness now), yesterday I finally tried my friend Scott's letter to my 'dead' list.

Where did this magical opportunity letter come from?

Scott got this letter from another marketer - who got it from another marketer.

It's the most coveted letter I know of and I'm going to be sharing it with my online marketing team in our back-office later today and will be breaking down the psychology of the letter and WHY it works in a private hangout.

Keep in mind, I didn't think it would actually work and I thought my list was dead. I was flat-out wrong.

Look at this:


How do you get on my marketing team?  First of all you apply and then we decide if we want to accept you.  That's also the 'secret' of this sales letter.

You see while everyone else is saying 'click here to check out my fantastic offer' - that' doesn't convert.

What converts is the concept of Acceptance into something greater.

I didn't believe it until I saw the numbers.

Now, I'm a believer.

Are you?
