Once upon a time…
There was grandpa Baboon. And his nephew, young Rabbit.
And these two fellows through their crazy adventures have taught the youths of my culture how to behave… and grow on the right side of the “manners tree”. These Tales of old where passed down over a burning fire where we’d sit around our elders, and listen as they pulled us into an absurd story that ended with an epic moral lesson. Best part?
Each story was easy to digest for our dumb-hyperactive child minds… and so absurd there was no way we where going to forget them anytime soon.
But that’s just the tip of the ice-berg…
The true purpose of these stories wasn’t to entertain. No, the true purpose was to make sure we knew the rules of our society just enough to not make total buffoons of ourselves when we grew up.
By slipping lessons into the story the elders overcame the “learner’s barrier” and snuck important social lessons through our back doors.
<h2>Thing is, people hate being taught yet they love being entertained</h2>
That why teachers don’t make much in our modern age society while the entertainers and superstars scoop up the moolah in bucket loads after each new shitty movie.
And so it is when it comes to email.
Everyone loves knowledge but nobody is actually going to willing try teaching themselves. I’m mean seriously…
<h2>All the knowledge of the world is there on the interwebz if any of your subscribers really want it</h2>
So instead just focus on being that entertaining person in their inboxes who brings a fresh story each day.

…Till the next wave of madness… Vae Victis
PS Y’know, come to think of Western cultures actually have an equivalent to what I just said.
They call them the “Tales of Aesop” and they’re pretty much the same thing. Innocently absurd stories that carry a massive emotional wallop at the end. They’re not as popular here but I’ve heard of them.
Even read a few in my spare time.
If you want to see how to teach with stories, read a few fables by Aesop and see how you’re learning without being taught. And if you have kids bonus points if you read the stories to them.
So, once again if you want to be the “Aesop” in your subscriber’s inbox then join forces with me and let’s create a kickass email marketing strategy for your list then enter your detail on the page below:
