The Story of the
Hypnotic Writing Monkey
by Joe Vitale
A monkey could use this material to write
a riveting sales letter, ad, or email message.
The only condition is the monkey needs
to be able to read.
I'll prove it to you.
Right now I have no idea how to write
this article for Larry on " How to Easily Use This Material to Get
So, in this case, I'm the monkey.
Now follow my path....
I grab this material and flip through
it -- which is what I'm doing right now -- and I spot a phrase...
"You don't realize it, but in the
next few minutes you're going to learn..."
I add to that phrase something my
monkey mind gives me, "...how to get people to do your bidding by using
this amazing collection of hypnotic materials."
I now have this: "You don't
realize it, but in the next few minutes you're going to learn how to get people
to do your bidding by using this amazing collection of hypnotic materials."
There, I just wrote a good line. Any
monkey could do it, as long as said monkey can type.
If you're like me, you'll probably
want another example.
Stop! Did you notice that "If
you're like me..." is one of Larry's hypnotic lines? It is. It's in this
book. My monkey mind found it and used it.
And "Stop!" is from his
book, too. I saw it and tossed it into the above paragraph. Made you look,
Here's a fact for you: Any man, woman,
child or monkey can flip through these pages and find words, phrases, and
complete sentences to help them lead and control the minds of their readers.
Hey! Did you catch what I did? The
phrase "Here's a fact for you..." is also from Larry's collection.
It's a way to assume logic without having any. It works.
And did you notice that
"Hey!" grabbed your mind?
It, too, is from this collection. It's
a powerful yet simple tool for practically yelling out your reader's name in a
crowded room. It GRABS attention.
Are you beginning to see how you can
use this material?
Think about making use of this
collection of hypnotic material and you'll begin to feel real power.
And did you notice that "Think
about making use of..." is yet another golden nugget from Larry's book?
Yes, a monkey with typing and reading
skills just might be able to write a good letter with this amazing collection of
tried and true hypnotic words and phrases.
But more importantly, since YOU are
smarter than any monkey, by the time you finish reading this material you will
be able to take these words and phrases and weave them into hypnotic letters and
ads that get people to act on your commands and suggestions.
Stop! Note "by the time you
finish reading..." is ALSO from Larry's priceless bag of tricks!
Can you see why I'm so excited!
As you study every word of this book
you will become amazed at how easy it will be for you to start writing your own
(I can't resist. "As you study
every word of this book you will become..." is also swiped from Larry's
collection. This is becoming way too easy.)
But let me confess something:
(Yes. "Let me confess..." is
a hypnotic phrase.)
When Larry wrote to me and said he
compiled this material, I was angry.
("I was angry..." is from
this collection, too.)
I wanted to be the author of these
gems. I even offered to help add more gems to the package if Larry would let me
be co-author. He agreed, but I could barely think of anything to add! Larry
already did the work---and did it very well!
The further you read into this
collection, the more you will realize why professional copywriters always have
"swipe files." They use them for inspiration. In this case, Larry has
done ALL the leg work for you.
("The further you read into
this..." is from his swipe file.)
Remember when you were in high school,
and you cheated to get a passing grade? Admit it. You did, at least once. Well,
this collection is your cheat-cheat.
("Remember when you were in high
school..." is swiped from this book, too. Do you see how easy it is to
write with this collection at hand? It's so easy I feel silly accepting money
for writing material like this for clients. But not THAT silly.)
Have you noticed yet that I began with
no idea of how to write this article and now, with the help of Larry's
collection, have written a very interesting and maybe even hypnotic piece?
("Have you noticed yet
that..." is from this fantastic swipe file, too.)
So here you are. You're holding
dynamite. Do you light it and throw it in a field to watch the dirt blow up, or
do you light it and throw it where you know lay hidden gold?
FACT: The choice is yours. Use this
("FACT" is swiped, too.)
Go forth and profit.
