5 Jedi Mind Tricks That Make People Read Your Post

Congratulations you just got sucked in by a “great” headline and are now part of an informal study about blogging. Have no fear I won’t reveal your identity nor do I promise to provide real scientific data for this study.

Instead I shall follow in the grand tradition of so many others and write a post that supports my hypothesis that headlines are overrated. So now let’s move on and see how many come seeking information and who comes because I have used the force to suck them in. If you aren’t using the force to generate readers and bring in traffic I suggest that you rectify that immediately.

One of the best ways that you can do that is by purchasing the ebook I haven’t yet written but will provided that a minimum of 500 people pay the never to be so low again price of $37.50. There is alternative for those who are too foolish, ignorant, stupid and or skeptical to pay me up front. All you need to do is send me three low payments of $19.95 and I’ll do the rest.

Can you see the immense value in my proposition. Don’t bother answering that was a rhetorical question. I never doubted that you would recognize it. Fact is that by taking the time to read these words you not only gained IQ points but also proved that you have exceptional taste. Congratulations on that. It makes you part of an elite group of influencers who have the kind of clout that Klout wishes it had.

And that my friends is why you need to immediately visit the blog that I built for Nanowrimo and read the story that I am writing there. Don’t forget to leave a comment about what you read.

But before you go here is a special bonus video. Watch it soon because you know that some videos have a very short shelf life and are subject to being pulled down.

Now that I have used up the 5 minutes I allocated for this post I am off to write something more serious.

    HAH! Only came here to post this *AFTER* having the friend who linked to this post confirm that the headline was itself a trick.

    YOU LOSE, SIR! (Dammit, now I’ve gone and read it anyway… I guess you win now.)

    For your ebook, I will give you one dollar for every IQ point I went up! 🙂

    Yes, the force never fails…

      The Force is mighty and should never be used in any way other than the Jedi Code. And if you want to know more than order my book and you’ll receive quite the education. 😉

    I really did stick in the headline. Makes me want to read this.

    Jack, aloha. Congratulations! You did suck me in with that great headline.

    Jack, I’m torn between the two payment plans. Does either or both have bonuses with it? All the FREE bonuses really make a difference to me.

    As soon as I hear from you, the check will be in the mail. Until then, aloha. Janet

      Hi Janet,

      Every one of my payment plans comes with free items and an unbeatable value proposition that has the most amazing ROI of all time.

      It is the kind of thing that every business school should use for a case study. 😉
