Damn spies everywhere.
Spies on the windows. Spies on the walls.
THE STREETS ARE CRAWLING WITH SPIES!
Well, at least that’s how a local gossip newspaper seem to get it’s juicy stories. You’d see these guys writing about domestic violence, sexual acts in the most absurd locations, and even stuff so crazy not even I could make it up ( and that says a lot, considering how sanity never was my strong point ).
I always wondered how this newspaper got it’s news leads so damn fast.
Till one day I came across one of it’s journalists giving his business card to a street vendor. Turns out the publication set up a “news bounty” for street vendors and people who spent their time out in the open. This network was centered in the news hot-spots of town with a few in key residential areas.
Whoever could deliver a juicy snippet of news with pictures or videos got paid a handsome reward for their trouble.
Turning everyone around us into a legion of spies for their twisted needs like a crazy news gestapo.
And the beauty of this method is how you can tap into it for massive damage in your emails and copy. Now, I’m not suggesting you start enlisting random “agents” to start looking for killer story hooks and ideas on your behalf ( though I’m not gonna stop ya if that’s how wanna roll ). Instead I’m suggesting training your subconscious mind to be on the constant lookout for interesting events and ideas in your day to day life.
- Whether it be something you see during a walk.
- To how a sexy waitress walks and trips in a restaurant.
- To how the child next door loves scaring the puppies, burning the trees…and
- hiding the remote ( really sick shit )
Ideas are everywhere.
Keep an eye out for them.
And if you want me to be your copy idea spy, using my years of accumulated stories, ideas and crazy stories to inject some fresh “pizazz” and interest into your emails, then hit me up over at:

…till the next wave of madness…Vae Victo…
