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 Gloriously Rich."
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, didn't it?
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 hypnotic
(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
("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
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 material wisely.
("FACT" is swiped, too.)
Go forth and profit.
