158: Mental masterminds

Does your team have advisors?

While every great team should strongly consider an advisory board, there are some people you won’t be able to recruit.

Inaccessible-or perhaps passed-greats need not be inaccessible:

  • Read their best works: Lots of them. Learn their journey, expertise, and bodies of work (what can they teach you?)
  • Get some time, if possible: Use live events, interviews, or one-on-one calls to learn their quirks and their personality (how do they talk?)
  • Ask them questions: In your mind. The better you know someone, the better you’ll know “what they might think about that” (what might they say?)

While there is no substitute for real-life advisory, for those who are unavailable to you, mental masterminds keep genius closer: privately, and on-demand.

465: Why nobody wants your sales coupon anymore ​

As enticing as they can be (albeit a little desperate) there’s a better option for the enlightened consumer of today: Coupons are for people who are already interested. But what gets them interested? Unless it’s the mere pursuit of a bargain, initial interest must come from somewhere altogether more emotional. We want to buy things […]

463: Ad value = Add value ​

Your secret recipe is about to be exposed. Ads that sell are dying: Not because they used to be good and now they’re not. But because they were never that good and prospects got wise to it. Ads that serve are rising: Not because it’s a new trend we should all hop on. But because […]
