Ever heard of list builder’s high?
It’s a fairly common condition. Sometimes fatal to businesses.
Symptoms include splonking shitwads of moolah to build massive email lists that don’t really make any money. And an irresistible urge to brag about how large one’s email list is as if they’re compensating for something.
Now, there was a similar condition in knew back in my days as a pick up artist.
I called in “phone book high”.
This was when someone got a girl’s phone number and thought the job was done.
That… is completely wrong.
Getting the phone number is the easy part. It’s turning that phone number into a date or a session of bedroom cha cha that’s the real challenge. Unfortunately it takes a while before most guys realise this.
Though the easiest way to beat the idea into their heads, is to make them chant the mantra:
You cannot fuck a phone number
This usually gave me the incentive to follow through with anyone I met.
And it’s practically the same thing when it comes to email. It’s real easy to watch your list grow as you forget that list is supposed to make you moolah.
You cannot make an email address pay the bills
But you CAN follow up on an email address and make the person who owns that address pay the bills.
Think you’re an list building junkie? No sweat. Just write the above quote on a piece of paper and stick near your workspace… where you can see it whenever you’re paying for traffic to build your list.
That’s all for today.
