Why You Should Not Let Your Client Control Your Copies

Why You Should Not Let Your Client Control The Dosage

Folks,

Two weeks ago, I got rather interesting feedback from a client who asks me to create a cold email pitch for his service.

And here’s what he said:

“Chad has great writing skills and provided out of box thinking. However, at times I felt that he wasn’t very eager to receive feedback and offered me to end the contract in the mid of the process.” – anonymous Tide Hunter

Hmmm.

I had to wonder if he had a point.

Looking on his feedback, I’m so grateful that at least he appreciates my great writing style and out of the box thinking.

But then…

He mentioned that I don’t accept feedbacks when it comes to my work, this and that.

Well here’s my point:

If he’s my patient and I’m his doctor…

Do you think I will allow him to control the dosage of the medicine that I’m about to give him?

I guess that’s absurd (in my humble opinion).

You see, the majority of clients are so demanding about their work requirements.

Some of them will tell you so much nonsense about their needs but hardly pinpoint what’s wrong about what they are doing.

Well, not everyone of course.

And I guess it’s my fault that I did not explain to him clearly that he cannot touch my copy not because I have an ADHD or whatever.

But I don’t want his emotional attachment to his service or product to wrap around and ruined my work.

Okay…

If you want to taste some great email writing style and out of the box approach when it comes to email.

You have the option to email your uncooperative out of the box email marketer at chadgodoy(at)gmail(dot)com.

Till next time.

The constantly slow reading and then forgetting it was miserable.

It was miserable…

And I really feel for anyone else having the same problems.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

You see, one day while I was surfing Youtube, I had this weird video about how to solve my reading problems. So I decided to watch it!

So I tried it to see what happen.

And much to my surprise…it worked!

In fact, it worked so quickly I almost thought it was a “fluke”.

But it wasn’t a fluke.

IT DOES work.

And, I believe it can eliminate your slow reading and forgetfulness, too.

Beautiful Teeth Expert Advice to Procrastinators

Teeth Expert Advice to Procrastinators

Recently…

I’ve stepped inside my dentist clinic for filling, cleaning, and dental checkups.

Unfortunately, my beautiful teeth doctor is kinda a bit late so I waited for an hour before she took care of me. And frankly, it’s my fault because I did not take the time to ask for a schedule, and just act as a walk-in patient, and I deserved it.

So what’s next?

Yes, I sit down and open my mouth wide, while she’s checking me up, she gave me a mirror so I can see what she’s doing and how horrible the status of teeth are in.

She easily noticed that I have a big hole on my left upper side tooth that needs immediate attention. There are also six minor teeth that need filling but not in critical condition. And there is one tooth that needs a more serious operation.

Even better…

She asked me to get an X-ray of my front teeth, to make it assure that we capture the tooths infection condition. It doesn’t cost that much, for four hundred Philippine pesos, she gave me a picture of what’s happening inside those teeth, and why the other looks different.

So what’s happened?
She gave me two options…

  1. Extraction – to pull my teeth.
  2. Root Canal – to kill the nerve of my teeth.

So without much thought…I choose the second one.

Why?

First is I don’t want to wear a prosthetic tooth replacement.

Secondly, she told me stories about how we’re going to make it beautiful and all of that.

Plus, she horrified me that if we procrastinate and wait for months until I experience such excruciating pain because of the infection, and how it will gradually affect it’s brothers nearby.

It will be a big mess.

So here’s the point:

Most of us (not just me), have these procrastinating habits to do what’s needs to be done. Not just in the area of orthodontics, but in finance, relationships and sometimes spirituality.

And most of the times…

We wait for the moment where we are in massive pain, debt (in the case of finance), or loss of a loved one (relationship).

Same as in orthodontics, business, and some areas of our life as well.

Just imagine if I did not go to the dentist until I felt so much pain what would happen to me?

I guess, in my opinion, if I get that massive infection, it will also affect the cost of the operation, my work, and some family members who are busy with their lives to take care of me.

It will be going to have a “Domino Effect”.

My God!

So, I did not wait for it to happen, she prescribes some meds (antibiotics) to cure the infection and schedule the operation right away.

And the lesson is…

Don’t wait, it’s better to get moving rather than meditating (or procrastinating).

How to Block Writers Block By Simply Stepping Inside The Shower Room.

How to Block Wrtiers Block

One of the hardest things for a writer is to sit down, look at the dreaded page and bleed to death for ideas.

I tell you…

For years of being a wannabe copywriter, writer’s block is one of my notorious enemies, not just for me, but for people who took the same path as with me.

But, here’s what I’ll discover…

One of the ways you can stop this myth is to step inside the shower room, take out your briefs, turn on half the hot water, turn on half the cold water, mix the temperature well, and as the water pours into your body, in just minutes…

Ideas start to strike in like lightning.

Well, I did not invent this.

In fact, one of the Mind’s greatest speaker living Jim Kwik tells that whenever we are taking our showers, our mind is in the “Theta State”.

Meaning, our minds start to wonder and our subconscious mind is at play.

Whenever we are washing our body with soap and doing some scrubbing.

We think of things that are related to what we are about to do, especially those important things that involve problem-solving, creativity and focus.

This is no joke.

If you think I’m wishy-washy about this, you can try it today or tomorrow.

Just don’t forget to bring your pen and paper.

It’s so crazy not to write those ideas, and forget it after you brush your teeth.

An Open Letter to My Dearest Friend who Loves His girlfriend Very Much

An Open Letter to My Dearest Friend who Loves His girlfriend Very Much

Dear Adrian,

They said that a true friend is a gift from God.

That you can only count them in your most dominant hand.

And, the only way to know whether they are true or not is when disaster strikes you.

But Mennn…

You’ve proved that you’re not just a friend to me. You’re a BROTHER.

A few years ago, I experienced the darkest moments of my life, that even now has its shadows following me within my heart.

It tested how strong the foundation that I’ve built in my twenty-six years of existence as a human being. But I can tell you, and as you know it, it falls to the ground. (Brick-by-Brick)

It breaks not just my heart, but my soul.

But after some years of agony and pain, I’ve learned to pick myself up and stand again with confidence.

And last December…

I’ve decided to offer my life to something that I’m so afraid to do, and that is writing.

Writing gives me a way to loosen my insanity. It makes my mind so occupied, that even there are sexy girls in front of me I really don’t care. (Even it’s size C or D whatever).

Well, it’s not my prime occupation right now, but a part-time trade with some perks that come along with it.

I write for people all across the grid…CEO’s, founders, the right hand of founders (you name it).

Well, man, it feels like I’m not working. (Chuckles)

Now why I’m saying you this?

Well, I just want to thank you, for everything you’ve done (including the insults), and I’m grateful that I have a friend like you (and Ai of course).

Without you, this has not been possible.

As Gary Halbert (one of the greatest copywriters ever lived) once said…

You’re the most useful skin God ever created for me.

You’re a shred of living evidence that in life, we need a good friend to sing with, laugh with and be with in times of despair.

I hope you have a nice life, and you’re rocking your day wherever you are reading this right now.

Your dearest friend from the shadows,

The Most Embarrassing Email to The Vice President of a Multinational Company

So I remember when I was still in the corporate, working as a crappy purchasing agent.

I send my most embarrassing email ever created by a pawn to her queen.

And, to give you a little context what this email is about, well, here we GO.

This email is about a request to purchase additional forklifts, that, are barely needed by the production line (in one of our cement plants).

Unfortunately, the budget is so ass-tight that adding those biggy crabby lifters that help the company speed up the loading of cement bags to hauling trucks is on hold.

So after the day, I processed the necessary documents, regarding the purchase of those forklifts.

The morning after, I received a disaster email from the Big Boss (I call her witch) Miss Ian, just like how Ron in the Harry Potter receives a growling message from her mother when he steals his father flying car in the middle of the night to rescue poor Harry Potter from his deadly uncle Vernon.

Anyway, she nagged me why I am eagerly pushing such purchase, even there’s already a memo not to increase units, especially those expensive lifters (that look like crabs).

With that email, I decided to counter the message.

With all my might and enthusiasm I reason out why I’m purchasing it blah-blah-blah. And then I pushed the magic button. SEND.

What I did not notice is that I also send the grammar suggestions, of the fix my grammar app that I’m using (because of copy and paste habits – I accidentally included it in the email).

This app tells you how was your grammar is doing and all the details that come with it. Including the number of words you’ve used, what grade your writing was, how many adverbs you pitch out, the no. of prepositions, and how strong you wrote your message/article or in my case email.

Fortunately, the witch did not care about those red highlighted words and grammar suggestions (I just can’t imagine her face, while reading it).

But she focuses on the substance of the email which the benefits that we will have if we buy those lifters.

Well, the lesson is.

It’s not how perfect you created your email or how grammatically correct they are that is important.

But if you have a good offer, well that is all that matters folks.

Don’t be afraid to send it, if there’s a big idea behind it.

And if you’re entirely afraid of writing it, maybe one day you will ask me how to do it.

Adios amigo…
