Damn, there is so much crap online.
Some of it is not even lies, but it’s still boring as hell LOL.
I was just reading a blog… a local blog about success and how to live the life you deserve and, you know, the regular stuff success coaches post (everybody is a success coach, or a life coach, or whatever coach, yet they all have 5 bucks on them… some of them have 6 LOL).
I was reading the blog cause the guy who runs it and I have a mutual friend who recommended it.
I read almost nothing that doesn’t come from at least a 7 figure earner, but this time I was like:
“well, what the heck, I’ll go check it out”
So I went to the blog and started reading about ‘the one thing all successful people share’. I was interested to see what I shared LOL, kidding, I wanted to see what the heck that thing was, although I had read about a hundred articles covering exactly this topic (it’s pretty popular).
I thought the guy would have just translated an already popular article and reposted it on their blog, yet I was surprised to see it was his own thoughts and the article was actually quite cool, would have been if I hadn’t taken the spelling mistakes into consideration (but who cares about spelling anyway, it’s all about the fun) and the fact that it wasn’t written to entertain.
Let me repeat that: it wasn’t written to entertain. The article told a boring story as if it was a high school textbook, people do that a lot actually, they create that wikipedia type of content and wonder why no one cares about what they say.
Fuck wikipedia, fuck boring articles with ten thousand pictures that make you wanna kill yourself before you get to the end (cause it takes 5 hours to read the little text throughout the pics). People who read those are the worst audience and you don’t need them, not if you want to be entertaining and sell.
Entertainment is everything in this life
How to create entertaining content
First, you should go read this article: You Will Be A Truly High-Class Blogger After You Read These 5 Awe-Inspiring Blogging Tips, in my opinion it’s one of the baddest on the blog and will tell you how to write articles that make a difference.
Then you can follow the step by step guide I’ve prepared for you and fuck wikipedia one more time LOL, I don’t have anything against it, but it’s dead boring and I don’t get why it gets so much traffic, I really don’t… actually I do, it’s pretty easy to create a high traffic site when you have the whole world writing and editing your articles.
1 Don’t sound smart, sound funny
What do I mean?
No one really cares about your opinion, neither do they care about the truth (cause there is no such thing as absolute truth, or at least people don’t accept it, everybody believes in different things), so there is no much point to try and enforce your beliefs.
I want you to check out this video on Fb, it is hilarious, I laughed my ass off and I’d buy everything this guys sells… Derek is actually one of the few marketers out there I like a lot, mainly because he doesn’t start his videos with: “I just wanted to shoot this quick video”, or “we had so much traffic the servers crashed” LOL and mainly because he has a monstrous sense of humor.
That’s how you make a video about something extremely important – weight loss, you make it simple and fun and you can see how many shares, likes and comments the guy has. You can be like him too.
2 Write as you talk to your friends at the coffee house
Take a look at me
I say fuck, shit and whatever I would say to you if we have known each other for years… not that all I say to my friends is fuck and shit LOL, ok I can’t lie to you, it is everything I say ahhahahhaha.
I’ll get serious now
I mean, you can’t write a personal article if you sound like a robot (or have wikipedia type of articles), no one likes to read dry content stuffed with facts, even if you talk about SEO all the time.
You content should be simple, fun, touching… and you have to say fuck and shit a lot LOL, although you run a risk of getting some angry emails from a few grandmas :). I get one of those every now and then.
Well, you can’t be liked by the whole world, so why try?
3 You have to learn to talk and talk and say nothing really LOL
This I’m still learning, it’s hard when you are a straight to the point guy.
People are not though, I’ve learned that for the 5 years I’ve been marketing and the 10 years I’ve been an entrepreneur. They like to be taught useless shit, cause it’s easy and everybody wants easy… it’s always simple, but not easy, but no one actually wants the truth as I said earlier, people want easy and useless shit is easy.
Learn how to talk and say nothing and you will become a beast marketer… and I stopped caring whether this is right or wrong a long time ago, cause I can’t change it, nor can you.
You haven’t read it yet? then you are fooling around.
The book is that awesome I contacted Amazon and tried to talk them into changing their price tables with no success, so I had to price it $9.99. I think it should cost $99.99, but Amazon is the vendor and they say what’s what.
You think I’m saying that cause it’s mine?
Let me know where to send you the first three chapters then and we’ll talk again (use the form to your right, below the article on mobile).
I’ve gone through a lot, I was once boring as hell, I used to write those fact articles, I used to read every god damn piece of content out there that taught how to get traffic before I noticed traffic’s the easy part of this business, I’ve lost a lot money, I’ve been lied a lot, why not learn from my mistakes?
Your choice though.
This is it, that’s what you need to start creating entertaining content.
Let me know if you liked this article and stay AWESOME!
