Bob Bly has an ebook there. Have any of you read it or know about it?
Any good?
Thanks!

From the look of the website alone, not interested. Looks like so many other scam websites out there. WAY too many bullet points and WAY WAY too many "testimonials". It doesn't tell you anything, plus has the term "Guaranteed"....

We're all interested in finding an easier way to bring in clients, since prospecting is the aspect of this job that sucks the most.

 
Unfortunately, I'm afraid there aren't any shortcuts.

Silver spoon = shortcut

Not to be mean, but the guy in the picture doesn't scream success to me.

Yeah, I can't tell if it's the down syndrome or that he ate paint chips as a kid...
 
You'd think if he "earns more than $700,000 per year" he'd be able to hire a professional photographer!

Bob Bly is a Chemical Engineer by education, he probably doesn't even think about "looks".

 
 
Have you seen the richest man on earth? He doesn't seem to care about haircuts or looks either (but at least his glasses are on straight).

 
I guess our goal should be to get so stinking rich that we don't care about our looks...and others won't care either because they will only care about our money. :)

I'd like to learn more about this. Seems logical -- we sell more when we're loose and the client is relaxed.
Whistle while you doorknock, eh.

This guy is a clown.  Like Borker said, there is no shortcut.

the dude is a copywriter that is trying to sell his stuff to people who hate cold calling and other direct selling activities.  like the idiots who cold call all day; his business and what he teaches is likely just a numbers game.

think of it like this:

when you cold call someone and they hang up or say their not interested, a lot of those people would have a similar impression toward that call as some posters have to this guys website.  but who cares.  it's just a numbers game.  some will buy/meet/etc.

the only difference is by using a softer approach, or direct mail, or web marketing, the numbers go down but the quantity of contacts go up.  in the end not everyone will reply favorably but those who do will become very good prospects or clients will very little resistance.

there's a huge difference between big producers and those who fail in their first 5 years.  be open minded - a lot of things work.  i happen to prefer those where people come to me and i don't have to realize every time i make an az of myself.

for full disclosure - i wouldn't buy the stuff either

I was thinking the same thing.
