Warning: This email includes praise for Tai Lopez…viewer discretion advised.
Love him or hate him, no one can deny the marketing success of Tai Lopez.
I used to rally against this guy. He seemed so full of crap with is garage and his books and his Mensa membership and his over the top attitude…
I worried about his message to the young people of the world…I worried about those following him expecting massive success with garages full of Lamborghinis and pockets full of cash…and falling way short.
A walking conspiracy theory, many believe his entire persona is made up…that he is the face person of an evil genius set up to steal money from America’s youth in exchange for infotainment and a promise of riches if only they apply his teachings.
I met Tai at T&C, and not just in the “I saw him walking and got a selfie” kind of way.
I actually met an old roommate of his from his days as a new marketer, and got to hang out with him and his entourage (which included a videographer and several bodyguards, along with car guards for his orange and black Lambo) for about 30 minutes.
Just hang out. Not talk shop, not hear a speech…just hang in the VIP room and shoot the shyt.
Outcome: I think the guy is legit. I signed up for his list. Love him or not, he is definitely smart as a whip about business, finance and marketing.
And he garners a LOT of respect from those in the VIP boardroom…far from the haters in the general T&C population.
Not to mention, his Snap Chat game is hard core (I tried to copy his phone handling skills and dropped mine about 10 times).
Now, I’m not just telling you all of this so you’ll think I’m super VIP by association. I’m telling you this because Tai gave a tip at one of the parties around town, and I want to pass it along to you.
*** TIP OF THE DAY ***
Edutainment (or infotainment) will be the ONLY way to sell as we move forward into 2017 and beyond.
People are tired of boring benefit bullets or educational facts. They want to be delighted, entertained, and told a story.
Sure, you have to provide the info…but it must be combined with the ‘tainment to caputre the audience’s scattered attention and allow them to leave their lives for a while and listen to you.
In tomorrow’s email I am going to share some slides straight from the Traffic and Conversion stage showing you the precise storytelling formula that works to infotain and delight prospects…and leads them straight to your shopping cart.
In the meantime, can you cruise over and give me a like on my Facebook page. I’ll love ya for it.
