Plus an offer at the end for free consulting (!?!)
A somewhat different Wizard’s Roundtable today. I’m going to turn the reins over to Peter Nevland, Wizard of Ads Partner, because he wanted to ask some questions of a couple of writers, (one of them being me, the other one being Asia Gregg) on two specific styles of writing that could be helpful to you. Asia is going to share with you how she sold a truck that was in Canada to a new owner in Texas, and he paid a premium for it, when there were all these other trucks around that he could have purchased. I’m going to show you some ways that you can improve your recruitment ad writing and why this is a stronger way to do it.
You want to stick around to the end, because at the end, we’re gonna have an offer for all kinds of businesses out there. If you need some help with your writing or crafting of certain ads, we’ll critique them and let you know how you can make them better. Let’s begin though with Asia Gregg. And she tells us that she once had a piccolo that she was trying to sell. It wasn’t selling until she changed the words.
Oh, that was when I was just trying to sell my own personal piccolo. And I had it on Craigslist for eight months. And I was just listing the stuff that I thought I would look for if I was in the market for one, just the straight facts. It didn’t sell for eight months and I didn’t want it anymore. You know, it’s not like it takes up that much physical space in your house. But yeah, it takes a lot of mental space in your head if you know what a piccolo is.
I know it’s there, and I need to get rid of it.
Exactly. You can hear it talk to you at night. So you just want to let it go.
So you’ve got to sell it. And so what did you do then after the first version didn’t sell for eight months? What do you do?
I got mad. And I just wrote this ad. I just didn’t care at this point. I said “It’s already not selling, you know, what’s the worst thing that could happen?” And so I just wrote this ad and published it and I went to bed. And eight hours later, I had hundreds of offers in my inbox when I woke up the next morning.
So let’s get the details first, and then we’ll get to the writing part. The details of it: you put it up for how much money? And it ended up selling for how much money?
It sold for the same amount that I asked for, 300. Which was a really good price.
You say you didn’t raise the price at all? Because you’re like, crap, man, all these people want it? Let’s see who really wants it?
No, no, since I already listed it for that price. I wasn’t gonna raise it.
Wow. A marketing consultant who also has integrity, this is gonna be great. Okay, they sold it for the same price, but you had hundreds of offers, whereas the other one didn’t you didn’t have any bites for eight months. And so what did you, what changed? What changed in your writing style that caused people to want to have it no matter where they were?
Well, the first version was just a bullet point list of facts have, you know, Been owned for this long recently. You know, retuned, had it appraised, all this stuff. I just listed stuff that I thought I would want to know buying an instrument. And instead in this other ad, I took out every fact except two, and the whole rest of the I think it was 500 words or something like that. The rest of it was just fantastical, made up stuff.
Craigslist Piccolo Ad
They call the trumpet “God’s Instrument.” The instrument that takes a month to learn and a lifetime to master. Forget that. I’m giving you the chance to own “Satan’s Instrument.” The instrument that takes a second to hate and a lifetime to get used to.
If your goal is world domination, getting the ball rolling on the apocalypse, or simply disarming someone who’s a little too “rapey,” this miniature flute of terror will hold the game down. And how.
Brought to you by Lucifer himself, this 4SP Silver Plated Gemeinhardt Piccolo will serve his evil minion well. From its compact arthritis-inducing body this pipe will unleash a sound that can bring entire crowds of people to their knees in pain and surrender. If you’re thinking of starting a bloody coup, leave the AK-47s and sarin gas at home son, this picc is all you need.
This instrument has the ability to sing an A five lines above the staff so crisp and clear that if you’re not careful may actually cleave your conductor’s brain clean in half. Its highest note is one only dogs can hear, that composers have dubbed “X.”
Apart from the oboe, this is the only instrument able to kick a field goal of pain right between the goal posts of your unfortunate target’s neurons, resulting in synaptic misfires, blown mental fuses, and a complete breakdown of all left brain activity, leaving the right brain to writhe in pain and confusion whilst scrambling all bodily motor functions. Any soul unlucky enough to wind up on the business end of Beelzebub’s piccolo will instantly be reduced to the fetal position and revoked of their right to free will.
Aside from violating several Geneva Convention protocols, this wailing weaponry can produce frequencies that wreak havoc upon others by causing:
- sudden unexpected nosebleeds
- heart palpitations
- loss of sanity
- unexplainable rage
- spontaneous combustion
- abandonment of the will to live
- anal leakage.
It’s a common mistake to think that the piccolo also has side effects on its user. Many claim it causes acute narcissism, but in reality the only people drawn to this instrument are already delusionally narcissistic, have serial killer tendencies, and show traits as promising future dictators.
Because of this instrument, I now rule over my own sovereign island, where I preach from balconies and lounge in my throne poppin’ bottles while getting fanned with palm fronds waved by ridiculously hot cabana boys. Tomorrow’s forecast: Whatever the hell I want.
Since I’m livin’ the dream, I’m retiring from my reign of terror and passing on the torch. Being evil is an arduous, exhaustive effort, and this musical scepter cannot be played by your average whitebread vanilla villain. Only the most cunning, dexterous, morally ambiguous, and questionably sane may apply.
Who among you is worthy?$300 obo. Willing to throw in a box of gravel and ship.
So you put the fact to draw them in, like the interesting fact. And then the rest of your copy was basically entertainment. You know, weaving a story to make it worth more to you. Because now it’s been imbued with magical powers. So it’s interesting. So you got mad, and I don’t know, if you realize that we always say, you know, Wizard Academy, or at least Roy always says that we teach people how to do consciously what talented people do unconsciously.
And what you did unconsciously was you started with facts that would grab attention. And then you started using insider language and turning this piccolo into a magical device that would satisfy all of the insider dreams of any piccolo player, any musician who would know these jokes. And so what it did was it drew in all the people who knew that language. And so what you were doing was you were basically saying, “Hey, I know who you are, I know what you need. I know how great this piccolo is. And anybody who’s been through those conditions went, ‘Oh my goodness, that’s me. And this piccolo could satisfy my emotional needs.'”
Like it just suddenly it became the most attractive thing going for anybody who was looking for a piccolo or even anybody who knows music. So you had people probably forwarding this out to people saying, “Hey, don’t you need a piccolo? I saw this thing and I just thought of you. That would be amazing. It’s in who you excluded. You excluded the people who didn’t play piccolo or didn’t understand music. They didn’t get it. They go like I don’t get this. But people who did play music, it caused them to be even more attracted. Which is so powerful. I mean, that’s really the art of persuasion. You took people who normally would not be motivated to buy, maybe to even look at a piccolo, but because you used insider language, you activated all the people who knew about this thing. And you know, once you press that button, then they’re excited. Now I got to share it with other people and suddenly you multiply all the eyeballs that are looking at your product that you have to sell. It’s pretty powerful.
And it had a nice side benefit to have people just loved reading it, even though they knew it was an ad. It was so entertaining that, you know, it became more than an ad. It became, you know, its own joke that people just enjoyed sharing with other people to make other people laugh, because everybody likes making other people laugh. It makes you well liked, it makes other people feel good.
So that was just for your own personal deal. Now you’re doing this for other people. Like people are paying you to do this for them to sell stuff that they have. Tell me about that. And how has your approach changed? Or what do you have to do when you’re selling stuff that’s not your own, that maybe you don’t know all the insider details about. The stuff that you’re trying to write an ad for?
I had to sell a truck for one client. And I didn’t know anything about trucks. But I know truck people. And I know that they love joking around. And so it was a simple Google search to see what truck people were joking about. And it basically wrote itself after that. Let me pull up the ad. I can’t remember what it was.
Now I don’t remember how much he was selling it for. He was selling for average price, I think a little bit above average, because it needed a new windshield. He was still selling it for a little bit above average price. And it was in Edmonton. And it was bought by a guy in Texas at the time. And it was only up for not even a day. It sold within an hour or so of him putting it up. The guy that bought it wasn’t too far from Houston. And I looked up on Craigslist in Houston and there were over 1,000 2003 F 350 Ford’s for sale. Same truck.
So this guy could have gotten these Fords that were right there up the street, but he went to Canada because of what you wrote. Wow.
Yeah. Cuz all the all the other ads are exactly the same.
That’s so funny. I’ve talked to used car guys, and said, “Oh, yeah, I could turn around and sell this car for you know, more than I just bought from you” type of deal. And they’re like, “That’s impossible. There’s no way you could do that. You’re not able to do that.” And I was like, “Well, there’s some something invisible, that actually will add no value to the truck, but will add value to the truck. I can do that. It’s called words. I can use words, actually to increase the value of this car.” You know, they’re like, “Oh, it’s impossible. It’s impossible.” It’s not. She’s right there. She does it all the time.
I wrote an ad for a buddy. He had this old Kia Spectra that he tried to take to the dealership. And they laughed him out of the dealership because he wanted 800 for it. And they said “You’re lucky to get 150. We’ll take it from you as like a favor.” And then he wanted 200 from it. So he had me write the ad and he sold it within a couple days for 800.
Wow, that’s amazing.
I told him he should have walked back into that dealership just waving the money out of like, see, look.
That’s awesome. That’s really cool. So did you find the ad? Yeah. Are you ready to be uncomfortable?
Ford Truck Ad
There are two types of people in this world. People who like Fords, and people who are wrong.
The Ford F series has been Canada’s best-selling truck for over 52 years. Consistent and dependable. It is everything that a Dodge is not. This Ford can do almost everything a Chevy can. Except randomly catch fire because I heard them Chevy’s run a little hot sometimes.
This is a work truck. If you’re looking for a pretend to work truck, then go to a Nissan store. In some towns, they call it the wrecking yard. Unlike other wagons, this 2003 Ford F-350, isn’t afraid of getting a little work on it. It’s got a small dent in the front bumper, but that just gives it character. Could use a new windshield, also. That’s Edmonton for ya. Other than that, she’s clean, well-maintained and built Ford tough. A word of warning.
The interior is very roomy. The vertically challenged may need a car seat and pedal blocks to operate. Don’t forget your sippy cup. Ain’t that right, Rick? The leather interior crew cab comes with all the Lariat bells and whistles. The heated front seats keep you cozy while you sip coffee and laugh at your buddy trying to dig his lifted Tacoma out of the snow. Sometimes it takes them ‘yoda boys a minute to ask for help. They can be a little stubborn. That’s just the nature of the breed.
Call this rig Optimus Prime, because it can transform from hauling trailers to hauling tools by switching out the tailgate. Sorry, no heated tailgate package available. You’re thinking of a GMC. Got to keep your hands warm if you’re going to push your truck home. Speaking of hauling trailers, this F-bomb comes with a fifth wheel hitch as well, because that was this four by fours for the previous job. Moving trailers from here to there.
The V8 engine has all new fuel injectors giving it maximum pulling power.
So when your buddy with a “city-boy-Honda-Ridgeline” needs to move his RV, you’ll be on speed dial. With brand new, some would say aggressive tires. This pick-em-up truck can pull your buddy’s Silverado out of that ditch… again. You hear how they’re making Chevy’s more aerodynamic to save on gas when Ford’s tow them? They say that over 95% of Toyotas are still on the road. The rest managed to make it home.
But with only 200,000 kilometers, this 3/4 ton is barely broken in. So what’s next? How do you take this truck for a test drive? Just follow these easy steps.
One, if you need to sell your Chevy first, here’s a tip. Try doubling its value by filling the tank.
Two: if you want to get down here, but you own a Dodge… Check the last two pages of the owner’s manual. That’s where they put the bus schedule.
Three: If you’re driving a GMC, but need to get here fast, try shutting off the engine to cut your time in half. Did you know a Sierra can go from zero to 60 in less than 15 seconds if you push it off a cliff?
Four: if you’re trying to unload a Toyota, increase your chances of a sale by customizing with working brakes. How’s that frame weld holding up there bud?
Five: if you’re bringing a Nissan, will you be sitting up front with the tow truck driver so we know who to give the directions to?
Six: And if you’re thinking of buying a Honda Ridgeline, then we’ve got some blinker fluid to sell you.
We hope to see you soon.
I love it. Because you just ticked off everybody who’s got who owns a different kind of brand of truck than Ford. But anybody who’s looking for a Ford goes, “Oh, I’m gonna be so happy owning a Ford and not owning these other crappy shouldn’t they be at the bottom of a cliff trucks.”
Amazing. Any other tips that you know, consciously? That could help somebody who’s either writing an ad or someone who’s wanting to know is this ad that I’m looking at good or not?
Well, first of all, it It can’t look like any other ad that’s on there. It has to have an engaging first mental image. The first sentence, or the first couple sentences, have to put an image in your mind that is completely different from what you were thinking about before. And then the following lines have to make you want to continue that thought. It has to be more interesting than what your reader was thinking or reading before. It’s very important.
And then all of the copy that follows has to be reinforcing that first line flowing through the rest of the body. Copy that makes you want to keep reading, you don’t want to stop. It’s like an ice luge or something, you know, you just keep going and building momentum.
And then of course, you have the last mental image, which always needs to be in my opinion, some form of a mic drop. You know, if it doesn’t feel like a mic drop, you have to go back and redo it.
You want that boom. Where people are just wowed by the end. Oh that was so awesome and you have nothing more to say.
Yeah, and you know, you got to get past Broca because anything that Broca thinks it’s seen before it’ immediately gonna toss it out the window. It’s got to break a pattern.
And when you say Broca — for all of you out there who are listening — when she says Broca she means there’s an area in your brain that is always looking for things that it hasn’t seen before. And Broca’s area is actually about pattern recognition and word translation and stuff. And when it sees something it hasn’t seen before then it stops judging and analyzing and starts enjoying.
And so as long as you can do something that somebody is like “Well, that’s different.” Now their right brain, the imaginative, the artistic side, is activated and they can get into the place of entertainment. And before they know it, they’re liking this thing, before they even decided whether they need it or not. That’s not an issue anymore. Now it’s just I like a “How can I get it” type of thing. So you’re basically bypassing the reason center and just going straight to the emotions, which is where we make our decisions. We make our decisions with our emotions, with our heart. And then we use our logic to justify what the heart has already decided.
So Johnny, let’s switch to you. You’ve been very gracious and very quiet. And you know I said that you write these great recruiting ads. Tell me about your first experience writing a recruiting ad? I guess we could say a Wizard of Ads style recruiting ad — and what you’ve learned since then? Just take us through that?
Well, I think one of the things that always has stuck out with me when I had written recruitment ads years ago was they all sound alike. They all kind of had this boilerplate: Here’s the position, here’s the hours, the pay or the benefits, you know, some bs line about unlimited earning potential, or you know, something like vans. So I always tried to turn the mirror around and say, “Alright, show me the character of the person who’s going to be working for this company.” And I know that’s profoundly more important. When we started writing the ads that that go out on Indeed, or LinkedIn, or one of those things, one thing that is important that was new to me was the length. They’re longer than they probably should be.
But that’s a filtering mechanism in there. Because if you’re serious, you’re going to go through it. If you’re not serious, you bail, and that saves the business owner a lot of time. And I think the other thing that is key is that it should be in the business owner’s voice. I should get a sense of who I’m going to go interview with before I ever send in my resume.
So how do you do that? How do you get into the business owners voice? Or is that just a function of having written ads for the business owner already? And you kind of know their voice?
I think that’s important is to come in cold like you don’t know the rest of the campaign. And one of the things we’ve talked about so often is how do you get alignment through all the channels that someone is advertising. Whether it’s on Facebook, or radio, or a billboard, or their recruitment ads, you need to get some sort of alignment in feel, in wording, and approach. And so when you can accomplish that, then you’ve shared with them the character of the business owner.
So Johnny, now I know on these recruiting ads, you don’t start off with trying to share the character of the business owner, you start off talking about the actual person that you’re wanting to recruit. Now you’ve never met any of these people. How do you speak to things within a person you’ve never met? But stuff that they’ll go “How does he know that?” How do you come up with that kind of stuff? Talk me through that?
Well, I think it’s the thing that we say so often — knowing what to leave out. And as Asia had pointed out, it’s okay to speak in an insider language. And so I guess what I’m looking for really is more of a psychographic or values approach to who that person is. So if I can speak in such a way that it resonates with someone who shares those values, shares those traits, then everything is going to start to lock in. That makes sense, right?
Yesterday, I did a search on Indeed.com and searched “rock star”.
Everybody likes the word rock star.
Yeah, you know, there’s over 5000 hits for people looking for rock stars. Wendy wants rock stars, Jimmy John’s wants a rock star. HVAC technicians, they want a rock star administrative assistant. You know, Top Golf, they all want rock stars. Cheesecake Factory, they want a rock star or a ninja or a guru.
They don’t really want a rock star if they thought about what a rock star is like. A rock star is someone who intentionally crosses the boundaries that normal people don’t. And if you think about the kind of person that you want to work for you, yes, you want someone who exceeds expectations. I think that’s what they mean. But in actuality, if you start trying to attract a rock star, you’re going to get somebody that might not be the best team player. You know what, Johnny, did you think of some other examples?
It speaks to exactly what you were just talking about. In fact, this was an ad for somebody who needed to be very detailed. This is for a coordinator for an air conditioning install company. And their job really is to make sure the parts are there and make sure that trucks are ready to mix. There’s a lot of little details that go into it. And so you’ve got to be ready for that.
HVAC Recruitment Ad
Detail Maniac Needed as Coordinator at a Family Heat & Air Company
All the presidents in your wallet face the same direction.
Your shirts are all arranged by color.
One extra look in the mirror.
Because for you, it’s gotta be right.
It’s not easy to find somebody who has a “thing” for organization, but something tells me you might be that somebody.
We’re hiring an Install Coordinator at Alaskan AC.
We’re a busy company, and making sure our install team, equipment, and trucks find their way to our happy customers without mistakes is going to be your number one job.
As an Install Coordinator, you’ll organize, measure, and monitor installation KPI’s, keep the install teams informed, and schedule them to head out on a job. It’s a daily game of chess where you need to think about one thing while writing down something else and talking to an install pro.
Sloppy-dressers, corner-cutters, and procrastinators are not welcome.
Sharp thinkers, problem-solvers, and expert-planners are strongly encouraged to apply.
You’ll start out at $16/hr…and when you show us you have forward-thinking instincts and organizational skills, you’ll be making $20/hr in no time.
Plus, a whole hunk of benefits, including:
- Health, life, dental, vision, short and long-term disability insurance
- 401k Plan with company matching
- State-of-the-art tools, iPad, software, and supplies
- Lots of opportunities to grow in our company
Some of the things you’ll do during your workday:
- Oversee the performance of Install Teams to ensure project quality, safety, and efficiency.
- Making sure the installations are progressing smoothly, safely, and on budget.
- Oversee performance and customer satisfaction on a call-by-call basis on the phone, by messenger, and by email with team members and clients.
- Making sure all installation vehicles are properly stocked, maintained, and damage-free at all times.
- Coordinate with the Warehouse Supervisor and Sheet Metal Manager to make sure we meet deadlines.
- Complete installation project documentation accurately.
Mostly, we need you to be on our team. We need to trust you won’t need hand-holding, you’ll show up to work on time, and you won’t be Captain Complainer.
“Details” is the name of the game in everything we do at Alaskan AC. Getting a new furnace or air conditioner means a disrupted day for our customers, so we spend extra time making sure it’s planned with precision. If somebody is missing a part, or gets an address wrong, it can throw the whole job off and mean another disrupted day. And because we’re particular about checking off all the boxes, your first employment test is in this paragraph. When you reply to this job posting, you’ll need to write I’m a detail maniac in the subject line. The non-detailed people will completely miss this part. A smart cookie like you will follow instructions perfectly.
If you love:
and coordinating schedules…
I’ll be waiting to hear from you.
That is so awesome. This is a great, I love it. You know Asia, you and Johnny have two different styles of writing. And yet you’re using this same technique fabulously to attract people. You know, I just love that. I love that one line, the captain complainer. It made me think of you know, Captain Caveman from the Flintstones way back? Asia, you’re probably too young for that reference.
And I think you got to be willing to do what we always refer to as magical thinking, just a little notch past what most might think of as absurd. You know, is somebody really going to put all the presidents in order in their in their wallet? Maybe someday. But it’s just silly enough to go “Oh, yeah, that’s, that’s my neighbor, or that’s me.”
I love that line. That was my favorite line because it’s specific, detailed imagery. You’re controlling, as best as you can what the audience sees in their mind when they read that attention to detail. You can’t control what they see when they read that, you know, you can’t guide their mind.
You want them to go — if you’re saying concepts like attention to detail — you know, that means different things for different people. Each line becomes a portal into a whole new world. And when you give people a portal into a whole new world in their imaginations, they forget whatever they were previously doing and put all their focus on what you are telling them. And that causes retention of the words that you’re saying to increase and skyrocket and go way up.
I mean, that’s just just huge, you know. Use specifics, and not to use more specifics than you need to.
Right? I think, you know, we have to always remember what we’re charged with. Our charge is selling a product or getting these recruits to come in and interview. And so you can’t ever let go of that. It’s very easy — I shouldn’t say easy — but you can write something weird and wild and nutso, yet if it disconnects from the the goal of getting somebody in there, then it’s just wasted words.
Yeah, they have to be they have to be braided together, you can’t add the best ones, you can’t talk about the entertainment without talking about the product. You know, they’re intertwined. Can’t talk about one without the other.
Tell me if I missed anything here. But if I could summarize all this, I think I found these points. Number One, that thing that we just said. Think about the ideal person that you want to hire, the character that’s in the heart of that person first. And think about the way that person acts, the kinds of things that that person would do. And you could even compile a list without trying to write something. Just jot down a big list of all those types of things. You might not use all the list, you might only use three or four of those things, but at least have a list of those things.
Second, Asia said this great thing, start with an incredibly powerful mental image that is more captivating than anything else that they’ve been looking at for the last 30 minutes. And don’t stop until you have an opening line that will grab them. And then your next lines need to reinforce that.
Third, use some specifics, you got to use specifics that connect with their personality. Specific things that would make them go, “How in the world did they know that about me” to draw them in. And once you’ve drawn them in, then you’ve got to give them a feel for the type of job that they’re going to be doing on a daily basis. Because remember, this is about them. You need to be describing the kind of job that they would love to do, even if it’s not in the field that they think that they would ever be in. If they’re getting to do all the things that they like to do on a daily basis, they’re going to love it.
Fourth, you’ve got to make sure you’re talking to them in the style of the owner, and they get a feel for what the company is like.
Fifth, you’ve got to have some details, and I’m talking about recruiting ads, but this works if you’re selling a product to0. They’ve got to have a feel for the kind of business that they’re going to buy from and whether they like and trust this business. nd then there’s got to be some details of the actual product or details of the actual salary and the benefits that are in there. Whether it’s recruiting ads, or whether it’s product ads. I mean, these are emotional, direct response ads for recruiting or for products.
Sixth, find a way to weed some people out. Put some slightly misleading directions in there with some subsequent directions that only detailed people (or only people who are really good, who really care about what they’re reading) are going to get. They’re going to respond so that we can turn the haystack into just a small pile of needles that’s a whole lot more manageable for business owners.
And once you do that, then you just need to close with something really big and really powerful. That’s going to be like a mic drop, so that people go, “Wow, how in the world can I get in touch with them?” Or “Goodness, that was an incredible ad,” or “I know somebody exactly like this, that I’ve got to send this to because that was just good all the way through.”
If you do that, then you’re going to be solving a whole lot of problems either for business owners, or for customers who want to find something that fits them. When you look at buying a truck or joining a company to work for — that is a big commitment. And so people are looking for something that feels like home, that feels like they fit. And when they can find that using words, suddenly they’re willing to do a whole lot more than they would then just for bullet points “This is the job. This is what it requires. This is what it takes. If you’ve got a resume send it to so and so and we’ll get back to you if we care about you and think that your hair is worth having in our collection of wigs or whatever.” I don’t know, just saying silly, stupid things that are halfway entertaining then people go “That guy is really weird. He’s probably not a very good marketing consultant anyway.” Did I miss anything in that summation of the style. Is there anything that I left out?
You know, the only thing that came to mind is whether it’s about a piccolo or a truck, or a $16 an hour job. If there’s not much difference in the thing, differentiate the ad. You’ve got you’ve got to somehow make it stand out, because the every Ford Truck looks like a Ford truck. But if you can make the the ad different — it’s not necessarily that hard to find a $16 an hour job. So make it distinctive in and of itself and you’re likely to get more response.
Yeah, Johnny, Asia, maybe I’ll ask this question, would you guys be willing, if there was a business owner out there that said, “Oh, my goodness, you know, I’ve got to get these guys.” Or maybe they said, “Hey, I’ve got this recruiting ad, I want to try my hand at this.” So somebody out there sent in a recruiting ad to you, or they sent in a product ad that uses these techniques and said, “Would you evaluate this?” Or maybe even a business owner goes, “Hey, what would it take to get you to write our ads?” Would you be willing to hear that? Could people send in some ads to us? And maybe we give him feedback on it? That’d be cool.
That’s a splendid idea, Peter Nevland. Yeah.
How do we do that? How do we do that? How do we make that happen?
Here at the bottom of the post are our emails. Yeah, send them in, and we’ll be more than happy to look at them. Or if there’s something you want us to tackle. You okay with Asia?
That’s right. So you heard that right here. We are offering free consulting right now. Send us an ad and we’ll be happy to review it and give you feedback. And if you are like, “Hey, we want you to write a bunch of ads…” I mean, obviously, if you don’t think that Johnny and Asia are worth hiring by now, well, we probably don’t want to work with you. But you should contact them. And I’m sure they’d be happy to tell you how much it would cost to do business with them. Because ultimately what’s going to happen, you know, Asia, she’s selling trucks and cars and stuff like hotcakes for you know, this Edmonton dealer. People are contacting them from all over North America to buy them.
I mean, do you think you want more people contacting you to buy your stuff? And Johnny’s causing recruiting to be a whole lot easier for employees? And if you’d like him to do that for you, and also probably give you a lot of great strategy advice, because both of them are brilliant people. I think you should contact them and you should see what it takes to get them on your team. Because what’s going to mean it’s going to mean a little bit of money to them, but a whole lot more money going into your bank account. Wouldn’t you like that?
You guys are awesome. Thank you so much for giving us your secrets. And man, I sure hope a lot of people take us up on this offer because if you don’t you’re going to be really sad that you missed out on the genius of Johnny and Asia.
If you have any thoughts or questions, please put them in the YouTube comments. And you heard Peter, if you are interested in us helping you send us some copy that you’re working on — regardless of it’s a commercial or a recruitment ad or even something you’re going to put in Craigslist like Asia is so brilliant at — and we’ll take a look at it, critique them, and get some information back to you and see if we can help you improve them.
