How to Show & Tell w/Hot Pink Chainmail
I learned how to "Show & Tell" Instead of Sell from Gary Halbert.
While one of his "Copy Cubs" was Complaining about How Gary made him drive
his HOT PINK Caddy. And he was Forced to Deal with Scads of Folks who ran
over to the car. While Gary Yelled, "I am a world Famous Marketer. Which
Headline do you Like Best? A or B?"
I Thought, "GADZOOKS!"
Gary found a way to ATTRACT people over to him. So he Could A/B Split Test Headlines. NO WONDER Gary's Copywriting Hit Home Runs First Time The Sales Letters were Tested.
Thought and Thought about ways I Could use The idea.
And Hit upon The Idea of a HOT PINK Chain Maile tie.
I ordered one.
AND it works Great.
A - Shy people see it but look away.
B - The Waiters and Managers all Compliment the Metal Tie.
C - And The Biz Owners with a Bit of BRASS come over and We have a CONVERSATION.
I Discovered Restaurants in Disneyland Doing Something Similar to Create
UP-SELLS that the Customer Thinks THEY Thought of.
You Sit in Your Reserved Table.
***Your Daughter Sees a Little Girl nearby eating a FROZEN Themed Dessert.
***Your Son Sees a Man Eating THE UGLIEST Chocolate Sunday he has Ever Seen.
***"Mommy - Daddy I want one of those."
You are DOOMED.
And the ADULTS don't Get Away For F-e-e-e Either!
Mom And Dad See:
A - A Family Up-Front Talking Directly to the Chef. Wearing Chef's hats. And You
Hear The chef Designing a Plate with The Food Spelling Your 1st Initial.
YOU ASK, "How Can we get a Seat Up-Front By The Chef?"
ANSWER - "Sir, Just Swipe Your Magic Ring Here. And We'll Move You Up Near the Chef. To The VIP section."
(EDITORS NOTE - You Get Home and Discover You Blew 200.00 Bucks on the
VIP Chef Package.)
You have been Manipulated.
After Testing a Few Pocket sized Items.
I found that Food Grade LED IceCubes Bring the most people over to my Table.
I - I Tip the Waitress with them.
II - People Come from out of the kitchen to chat.
III - Children Drag their parents over to talk.
IV - Affluent Couples START TALKING to Me as if We have known Each other
for years. Because I am a Vegetarian. And they See me BRIBING the Waitress.
And the Cooks to Bring me HUGE Plates of Side Dish Veggies.
They are HIGHLY Entertained.
And Share all kinds of Details about their lives.
V - If I Want to LED IceCube FISH for a Customer -- LOCATION - LOCATION -
Affluent LOCATION - I simply Put on a Suit and HOT PINK Metal Tie. Show up to
a 50.00 a Plate Restaurant.
But Order only a 10.00 Cup of Soup. Spend the rest on Tips.
The last such place I went to Charged me 8.00 for Brussel Sprouts. And I called
The Chef Out of The Kitchen - to Ask for His Recipe.
After Bribing the Whole Kitchen Staff with Instant Scratch off LOTTO Tickets.
I met the owner of the Restaurant!
You Make an Excellent Point.
Why STRESS OUT.
When it is so easy to SHOW Some LED Flash. Get Noticed by The ENTIRE
Restaurant Clientel. And Chat. And Only TELL others what you SELL after they
ASK. Cuz they are Curious. And ALWAYS ask.
I Put 58 HOW-TO Case Studies and Testimonials into a E-book so Others know Exactly what to say and do - called, "Flirt Tip Battle Book #1"
And You Can Order The LED IceCubes at Amazon.com -

How I tried to get attention at a festival... and FAILED
I read what you wrote, and it triggered a memory!
I was selling discounted comedy club tickets face-to-face at a festival. I hit on the idea - to get attention... I wore a multicolored clown wig on my head.
It didn't work.
But you know who sold the most comedy club tickets?
The results became clear when we all reported sales at the end of the day...
It was the young ladies selling comedy club tickets, wearing low cut tops (which were the fashion at the time)...
I'm just reporting a fact.
It was unfair... I didn't have the same equipment!
I think my "clown wig" idea didn't work, maybe because it wasn't unusual enough, maybe it wasn't funny enough, or surprising enough...
Maybe in the context of a festival (with all the amazing sights and sounds), it just didn't stand out enough!
But... I LOVE your idea!
It's a good one...
I think (at that time) I needed a better idea to stand out, entertain people, and ATTRACT people, in the context of a festival...!
"A Dollar Bill, A Lotto Ticket or Hillary-Behind-Bars-Bucks"
I Think THE SECRET to Attracting Attention that SUCKS People over to you Smiling & LAUGHING is TESTING until you find an idea that Works GREAT.
I have recently Flirt Tip Given Away and Tested:
Little Yellow Duckies that Squeak
Small Squirt guns
LED Flash Monsters with SPRINGS on them
WHEN GIVEN A CHOICE of Any of the above items.
And In Tipping Tests.
When Asked to "Please PICK ONE You Want as a Tip"
ME Holding up a REAL 1.00 bill and A Fake Fifty with Trump on the Front - The Moolah with TRUMP's Face is chosen 50% of the time!
ALL This Face to Face Testing Is About COPYWRITING.
I am currently Writing a New E-book Called:
"INSANE NLP Copywriting Battle -
B*illionaire Writing Secrets-Book #1"
Inside I explain:
How J. K. Rowling, Disneyland, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Richard Branson
and others Use A Combo of NLP and INSANE Psychology to Create B*uying ADDICTS.
YOU MAY ASK, "How Do You Convert A Face to Face NLP Copywriting Test
into Making Moolah from home with INSANE NLP Writing?
The Spoken NLP Trance Question I use to TEST TRUMP MUNNY - Contains THE SAME Underlying INSANE NLP Copywriting Battle PSYCHOLOGY as the Subject Line Above.
Here is what Both have in Common -
FACE to FACE I say,
"Which one do You Want as a Tip - A 1.00 Bill or TRUMP Munny?
AND THEN -
Here's How I came up with The Subject Line to This Post -
You Can Follow Along and POP-QUIZ Yourself.
Which Title do You LIKE BEST?
A - "Have You Ever Seen Hillary-In-Jail Munny?
B - "Choose one - 1.00 Bill Or Hillary Behind Bars"
C - "Pick One - Trump Munny or Hillary-Behind-Bars Bucks."
D - "A Dollar Bill, A Lotto Ticket or Hillary-Behind-Bars-Bucks"
The New INSANE NLP Copywriting Winner?
LETTER D - "A Dollar Bill, A Lotto Ticket or Hillary-Behind-Bars-Bucks"
Becuz it contains The Basic NLP Hypnotic Trance Words!
Mirroring - Matches Your Memory
Pace - Elicits a Shared Experience
NLP ANCHOR or Energy Link - (Words that SLAP You and Create a Chi Energy Spike inside your Mind.)
HERE it is all Separated out for your Shopping Pleasure -
MIRRORING - "A Dollar Bill,
PACE - "...A Lotto Ticket
NLP Anchor Energy SLAP Words - "Hillary-Behind-Bars-Bucks"
FACE to FACE when Tipping... UNWRAPPED NLP-Wise.
"Which one do You Want as a Tip - A 1.00 Bill or TRUMP Munny?
MIRRORING - "Which one do You Want as a Tip -
PACING - A 1.00 Bill
NLP Anchor - "...TRUMP Munny?"
AND OF COURSE 3 More INSANE NLP Layers are in There too. Explained in
the Next Chapters.
I - The Dr Milton Erickson OVERWHELM (INSANE COPY) Strategy That Opens Your
Mind to "Suggestions."
II - The Trillion D*ollar B. F. Skinner Discovery using Rats. Now used on People in
Casino, Lottery, on-line games. Reward Words As "Suggestions"
III - Andrew Carnegie Competition Principle - Used by every Modern B*illionaire
Our Club Is watching.
P.S. - HO Dien - Amazon has Already Tested What You Should Wear to ATTRACT The Most People at your Next Carnival.
1 – Inflatable Dinosaur
The top seller is the inflatable dinosaur costume. Not only is it selling over 800 units per day in the month of October, but it stays popular year around with an average of 14,000 sales per month!
P.P.S. - If you decide to WEAR a Dino Outfit - Share a Photo. I know that would
but a BIG SMILE on MY Face.
"How to Board an Airplane with a Dinosaur!"
Thanks for your reply!
I think you're right... I needed to do something that would put a smile on people's faces, and get them laughing...!
(A clown wig was not enough to do that!)
But... A guy in a Dino outfit - selling tickets?!?!! Wow, that would get ME laughing!
That reminded me of this video I saw (made by two Norwegians), and I dug it up...
How to Board an Airplane with a Dinosaour!
Great Video Dien - Glenn
It takes a LOT today to Break thru the Barrier MASK people put up to Protect themselves from Zillions of ATTACK advertising.
Warren Buffet has figured out how to do DINOSAUR LIKE Videos for
Break thru so you watch his Geico insurance videos.
The stupid Lizard
The Cave man
The DinoSoar on the ice hockey rink.
He got to me.
I can remember this stuff off the top of my head.
Thanks Glenn! I watched some of the GEICO Gecko (and other GEICO ads)...
We don't get GEICO ads here in Australia... So I just watched a few GEICO ads on YouTube. They're pretty funny!
Thanks for the heads up...
And you're right, cutting through all the "noise" everyone is bombarded with by doing something to make people laugh and smile is a great way to do it!
There are multiple ways to cut through - fear is a big one which is often used (especially in politics). But I like the laughter and humor approach - make people feel good, and even make the world a better place, while you're promoting and marketing!
