Manipulative Internet Marketers in the Buff by Richard Posner http://internetguruguide.com <ul><li>An expose featuring Frank Kern’s recent re-launch of Mass Control and the ethical dilemmas it poses. </li></ul>
Frank Kern’s Latest Product Is Not For You. Take My Word For It.
Frank Kern launches again and (again and again) and you might think you need what he is offering...but his booty is likely not for you.
You Might Drool Over What He Is Dangling Because Frank Is One Smart And Talented Dude...But His Deal Is Not For You.
Frank's Funny, Engaging And An Outstanding Free-Content Master...But His Mass Control System Or Any Other Is Probably Not For You.
How Can I Be So Certain About What Is Or Isn't Good For You?
That's a great question and I will answer it in biblical terms: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
"Brainwashing is a system of befogging the brain so a person can be seduced into acceptance of what otherwise would be abhorrent to him. He loses touch with reality. Facts and fancy whirl round and change places.... However, in order to prevent people from recognizing the inherent evils in brainwashing, the Reds pretend that it is only another name for something already very familiar and of unquestioned respect, such as education or reform." ~Edward Hunter, “Brainwashing~
And Isn't That Exactly The Formula Of What Frank Kern And Others Have Done And Are Doing?
He's yanking your chain and teaching you how to duplicate the process. Black is white and up is down. And manipulation is dainty.
I Can Hear The Rumbling And Grumbling. Frank Kern's Cool, Fabulously Wealthy, Seemingly Laid Back, And Shares Choice Morsels Before Each One Of His Pricey Launches. What's Wrong With That?
In Every Sense Of The Word, Frank Is A Master of His Trade. He Teaches Trance Marketing – The Art Of Turning Customers Into Happy Laboratory Mice. His Bait Is His History Of Success Which He Promises He Can Pass Onto You...Guaranteed!
No, Frank Kern Is Not The Devil. He Truly Wants To Pass On Or Forward What He Does Because He Knows It Works. Many Successful Internet Marketers Imitate Him, As Best They Can...But Frank Is Frank.
OK. I Know Many Of You May Be Thinking That Unless I Make Big Money On The Internet, I Should Keep My Trap Shut And Let Busy, Successful People Go About Their Business.
To Make Fistfuls' Of Money, You Must Have Confidence In Yourself And Confidence In The System You Are Using.
What Is Optional (In The Short Run) Is To Be Ethical And Forthright With Your Prospects And Clients. Money And Big Paydays Can Often Cloud Ethics And Lead To Machiavellian Marketing.
In A Nutshell, Here Is Why I Take Issue With Cult Hero, Frank. I Believe He Can Deliver The Goods To You, If You Let Your Morals Drop Into The Sewer. What He Does And What He Teaches Is Devilish.
I Say That, Knowing That Many Marketers And Guru Groupies Will Want To Dismiss Me As A Kook Or Ne'er-Do-Weller.
I'm Going To Now Pull A Cliché Move On You – One That All Marketers Learn From Frank And His Ilk....
*I am not someone who went from a gang leader to being a world-class financier or noted author. *I wasn't orphaned and did not grow up in a war zone. *I am not a man who lived in a trailer park or the backseat of a beater.
There is no rags to riches story here to convince you that “I f I can do it, anybody can!”
The Unadulterated Truth Is That Jiminy Cricket's DNA Runs Through My Veins. I am A Voice Of Consciousness In A Gladiator's Arena Of Gritty Internet Warriors Who Turn Truth On Its Slick Head Without A Blink.
In Less Prosaic Terms, I Have Firsthand Experience With Mind Control Techniques And Because Of My Traumatic Brush With Religious Cults More Than 30 Years Ago, I Have Been A Student Of Brainwashing Techniques Ever Since And Can Smell A Rat A Mile Away.
In A Way, Most Successful Marketers Who Study And Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Are Able To Hypnotize You With Words, Rhythms And Visuals. But They Often Abuse That Privilege And Should Be Called To Task.
All Successful Marketers Tap Into Our Minds By Implying That Their System Or Software Application Is The Vehicle To Fantabulous Wealth And Financial Independence.
I Have Yet To See A Marketer Flat Out Tell A Prospect That Their Launch Product Is Inappropriate For Certain Skill Levels And Mindsets.
To The Contrary, The Marketer Believes That One Size Fits All And Virtually No Scruples Are Necessary In Flogging “The Next-Generation” Innovation.
The Seller Shamelessly Claims Or Implies That You Will Transform Yourself From A Beach-Bum Dropout Scraping Baked Beans Out Of Can Into A Tropical Island Owner With James Bond-Type Ladies Or Men Licking Your Privates With Gawking Cockatoos Circling.
There Is A Method To My Madness. I Believe That Most People Are Not Professional Internet Marketers And Never Intended To Be So. They Were Captured By The Lure Of Riches And the Leisure Life. We Are Put In A Trance By The Marketer Skilled At Doing That Kind Of Thing.
We Are Put In A Trance By Marketers Such As Frank Kern Who Are Skilled At Doing That Kind Of Thing. They Tell You In A Whisper What They Do Because That Is Part Of The Hypnosis.
They Desperately Want You To Bind With Them - Let Down Your Guard. So They Write Or Speak As If You Have Become Their Confidant. It Feels Cozy. You Might Tingle With Joy, As If You Won A Lottery Jackpot The Day Before Your House Is Scheduled To Be Repossessed.
But Then You Wake Up On Monday Morning, Flip On Your PC, Read Your Emails, And Take A Look At The Newest “Can’t- Miss” System You Bought With Millions Of Dollars In Bonuses Tacked On Gratis From Shawn & Tellman, Brad & Andy, Mike & Anik, or Frank & Trey. Lovely Couples, All, And Well-Meaning To Boot!
“ Each man has his own vocation; his talent is his call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~ Ralph Pinpointed The Problem Long Before al Gore Invented The Internet…
The Clothes Don’t Make The Man; The Man Makes The Clothes. One Size Doesn’t Fit All. Most People Don’t Want To Be Internet Marketing Junkies. They Just Want The Moolah That Is Sketched Into Their Collective Consciousness By Artful And Designing Gurus And Wannabes Looking To Finance Their Next Maserati.
Human Beings Don’t Pee In Synchrony. They Don’t Goose Step To The Same Restaurant For A Reservation For Four. They Don’t All Want To Be Astronauts, Actors, Or Corporate Lawyers Speaking And Acting With One Voice And One Opinion. No, They Want To Be…
Financially Free. Emotionally Free. Job Free. Worry Free. Time Free. Even Free To Fail.
They Desire To Follow Their True North Uniqueness Without Having To Deal With The Ridicule And Sniping Of Failures Enviously Rooting Against Their Success.
Far Too Many Of Us Settle For Second Best, While The Finish Line Lies Around The Bend. Why Do We Self-Sabotage? Because We Are Scared Of Being Naked And Out Of Our Comfort Zone.
So We Look For Short Cuts To Heaven On Earth That Don’t Require Internet Skills MLM Religious Conversion Neuro-Linguistics Expertise Public Speaking Skills Writing Ability Good Health Business Connections Motivation Time Self-Confidence Up-Front Fees Ponzi Schemes Drug Running Money Other Than The Shipping Cost For The Business-In-The-Box Website Programming Skills and… Fill In Your Blanks
So Along Comes Frank Kern, Shawn Casey, Tellman Knudson, John Reese, Anik Singal, Jeff Johnson, Michael Cheney, Heather Vale, Andy Jenkins Or Whichever Gazillionaire Guru Catches Your Fancy With Pre-Launch Promises That You Won’t Need Any Of The Aforementioned Skills Or Inclinations.
Frank (And The Others) Teach You That Offering What The Prospect Wants With A Risk Reversal Guarantee And Zillions Of Dollars In Priceless Bonuses Is Your Ticket To Success.
Can a millionaire or billionaire define success on your terms? No way. You must know what you stand for or risk falling for any dog and pony show. The people who are making consistent big bucks know what they stand for and know how to market with aplomb.
While Frank Kern or David Letterman or Donald Trump May Impart Sound Bites Which Can Dramatically Alter Your Thinking, More Often Than Not They Are Taking Manipulative Aim At Your Subconscious Mind. They Or Their Sponsors Want You To Buy Products And Services That Will Make Them Rich And Secure.
Rich People Want To Hang Around With Other Rich And Successful People. Leonardo Decaprio Wants To Sell His Latest Blockbuster Movie. Letterman Wants To Sell Life Insurance, Beer Or Whatever Commercials Keep Him On Air. Trump Wants To Sell His Persona of Invincibility. None Of Them Gives A Damn About Your Dreams, Nor Should They.
The Loser Always Tries To Live His/Her Dreams Through Idle Fantasy. He/She Draw Pictures Of Castles In The Sky, But Never Puts Himself/Herself In The Picture. It’s Called Idle Or Idol Dreaming, And The Non-Medical Disease Is At Pandemic Proportions In Dog-And-Pony Cyberspace.
I Truly Stand For Ethical, Ecologically-Sound Marketing. In The Prevalent Rudderless Marketing Environment Of 2009, There Is An Absolute Need For Someone To Keep The Online Marketing World Gurus In Check.
Most Successful Marketers Are Good People Who Take Great Pride In Their Achievements And Talents. They Promise You That They Can Teach You To Be Rich Like Them, Without Any Mention Of What My Favorite Mentor, Jim Rohn, Once Said…
“ Work Harder On Yourself Than You Do On Your Job. If You Work Hard On The Job, You Can Make A Living. If You Work Hard On Yourself, You Can Make An Extraordinary Fortune.”
In conclusion, build your business from the inside out. The inside means that you should have clear rules of engagement in your marketing endeavors based on the golden rule. Lies and deceit cannot nor should not be rationalized or justified…ever.
