"Twitter took the wrapping off its subscription service twitter blue this morning but only if you're in canada and australia for now pricing is three dollars. Forty nine cents per month. Canadian and four dollars and forty nine cents a month australian which suggests i think what a two dollars ninety nine cents a month price point for when it comes to the us although twitter did not say today when that might actually happen quoting cnbc. Twitter blue users will an undue tweet feature that allows them to set customizable timer of up to thirty seconds to take back a tweet if it needs to be fixed. The feature is not quite an edit button often requested by users but it will allow subscribers to preview what their tweets look like an adjust them before they're published other features include bookmark folders so users can organize tweets. They save a reader mode. That makes it easier to read. Long threads the option to customize the twitter by cons on their phones access to color themes for the twitter app and dedicated customer support and quote more details on those particulars from sarah peres in tech crunch. The bookmark folders option is designed to help. Twitter users organizers saved content collected through twitter's bookmarks feature introduced in early eighteen twitter's bookmarks give users a private way to save tweets for later reference. This is useful for those who want to read long form content at a later time or for those who want to save tweets without alerting others to that fact for example if the tweets being saved. Aren't those they would normally it. The heart icon. Perhaps because the user disagrees with the sentiment being expressed the bookmarks button. Lets them save the tweet. more privately. The folders feature will let users create sub folders for their bookmarks which are also color coded for easy at a glance access. And there's an ad bookmark button on the screen. So you can add a tweet. To the collection.

Want to Talk About Video Games?

"That everyone who listens to talking tech knows you and i like video games. But there's so many games out there. We can't get to them all let alone do a deep dive on them right. Yes absolutely so. One of our editors josh avera came up with this idea of giving readers forum at usa today to talk about a beloved game or anything else in video games. They're passionate about so you can go to tech dot. Usaa dot com. Go to video games and one of the examples of this is a story about microtransactions written by it professional leaf morganson. If you play video games you've likely come. Across a micro transaction is basically. When you're in the middle of a game and you get a prompt that asks you if you want to pay say dollar or two dollars or more for suffolk virtual money or upgrades to your character. Now as leaf points out you can usually earn virtual credit in the game to pay for those things. But if you're like me or fear like other players you might not be as patient One example he brings up is a sports video game and with a lot of the sports video games. They have a mode where you can create your own player and say do this in the nba. And you can start from rookie season and work your way up in as you play each game you'll build up your skills and you'll get better and better so you might start out like with a sixty rating out of one hundred but in order to have a player that can be competitive. You might want to get it up to eighty five or ninety or something like that so trying to grind that out and get to that level can take a while you have to play a lot of games and it can take depending on how much time. You're spending several weeks a month. How retakes or you can spend money. And that means that you know in on top of the money you may have spent on a console game for example like sixty dollars or seventy. If you're on next gen you're talking about paying way more for video game than you expected so in this story leaf admits that he pays his way sometimes but suggests you get more out of earning your experience and at the same time giving game companies all your money by trying to develop your character naturally instead of using it with your dollars.

And the pandemic even very like on your hustle and very productive seems. Well i'm fifty two. And i'm the sole provider for my family so in a way. I think that i have my priorities. And also i'm a writer. The which means that i'm a freelancer. That's what it is so you kind of have to keep your game on. Well i think for me. This is the biggest question for all writers but why novels i feel like that's one of the hardest storytelling ways that is out there. It started out with a corporate lawyer. Just wine apples while. I'm a big reader so that is really the reason why i wanted to write a novel and has really for me very very difficult. I've only produced two in about thirty years. So i've had to have all these side hustles to basically pay for these things. Because i never wrote a book before on contract and that's really important to share because a lot of people think that you have an idea you contact the publisher and say hey. I want to write a book and it just doesn't work that way. So i wrote it on spec and of course in the film industry guys no i wrote the entire thing and i presented it to somebody and said hey can i get one representation. I'd even have an agent. When i wrote my first book and it took me about eleven years of this kind of beating my head against the wall. Why did i choose novels. Because i think novels can create an incredible world. That's really difficult to do any other media. So that's why i did it but for me. It was a very long struggle. I've met young very talented writers who can just pop out. And i think that's awesome. That was not me.

Murders and Disappearances: Can Psychics Solve the Crimes?

"Now like i said i don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that a person can have psychic abilities. I do think that sylvia brown did not have psychic abilities. But i wanted to present you with some cases where psychics got it right. it turns out. Those cases are very hard to find. Even if you pop over to reader's digest dot com which i don't recommend and read articles with headlines like twenty times psychics. Got it right once. You barely scratched the surface on those cases. You find out. It's a little more complicated. It's super hard to get good. Statistics on police use psychics and investigations. Police don't really like to talk about how much they rely on psychics and in some cases get older. The information on them changes drastically if you read five articles about a case from fifty years ago. Each written in subsequent decade. You'll find the reporting goes from police. Credit so-and-so psychic for pointing them in the right direction to initially police admitted to using a psychic helped but later retracted the statement to eventually police adamantly deny using psychic and the case and claim that any information a psychic may have given was patently wrong. So it's a little hard to keep track of but according to an article in forbes. The cia conducted a study and found that eight out of eleven police officers. Polled said. they used psychics to help them solve crimes. Eight out of eleven. Oddly enough. I couldn't gain access to the cia report even though it was supposed to be declassified the link was broken i think someone high up read the report and was like fuck. Now burn that shit but eight out of eleven is a lot. I don't even think eight out of eleven people believe in psychics. Generally eight out of eleven even if those numbers are inflated and it's more like five out of eleven. Don't you think there must be something we don't know and look there could be many reasons caught. Might turn to a psychic desperation. Laziness appeasing distraught loved ones and even if afterward they try to back pedal and make it. Look like the psychic wasn't helpful. It does make you wonder why. So many police officers who aren't generally known for their hippy. Dippy reported using psychics to help them solve cases.

This is all for our benefit. Ran awful for our safety. They'll license plate readers facial recognition. Key loggers blue sapphire know. They're so many different ways today that we can be tracked as we move around the world. Has there been any cases of conflict here with libraries and law enforcement trying to install these kind of things. Oh sure. I mean. I i would say the most the most common our cameras and then also there's like a few other kind of more common Law enforcement surveillance equipment like for example. These devices called a shot spotters. That are mario surveillance devices that are supposed to detect right there gunshot detection but they also picked up all other sorts of audio and so yeah. I mean certainly. Local law enforcement will request to install these devices on the building or in the parking lot especially if there is if it's a quote unquote high crime area or If it's an area that is afflicted with like an addiction crisis or something like that Yeah no i mean that sort of thing. It's it's so common as just a very kind of local community thing that happens. That don't even know that there has been any real attention or or much writing about the one thing that i can think of that speaks too specifically the way that these kinds of relationships with libraries and law enforcement can get really impacted by the presence of surveillance equipment is there have been a couple of case studies around libraries that have installed cameras in there on their property. Not inside the library. But outside. And actually i think in these cases it was the library deciding to install the camera themselves so like they had staff felt unsafe walking to their cars at night or something

In which these truths Become hilarious, and I'm talking to Sandy 10. About her hilarious novel, Lurkers, which has been just named on the Today Show is one of the books of the year and the book. Seems to have almost gone unnoticed by reviewers. Um, you're afraid of the things that you just mentioned. You know, nobody wants to get in trouble for for finding things funny that they might feel the not entitled to find funny. And I think that they should be given permission to find I'm giving them permission to find it Funny. I come from an age before the words political incorrectness found their adjacency, right? We didn't call things politically correct. In fact, the humor Off my time, whether it was Thomas pinch on, or Terry Southern or many, many, the humor of that time was called black humor, and it was black humor. Not because it had anything to do. With caller but because it was dark. It was Being taught, held a laugh at things that they had found utterly unfunny in the fifties. And I suppose we're in that kind of time again. I hope so, where people need to be instructed. How to laugh because there isn't anything that can't in the proper context become funny. Yeah, because I began writing this book in like 2006. A few years after 9 11 when everybody proclaimed irony was dead, and there was no more since humor or something, and it was Is, you know, reverence for so much stuff, And one of the things I wanted to do with this book was to kind of create, um Have you no sense of comedic conflict between people with a sense of irony and people without a sense of irony, and so much of what happens in the book results from those battle between people With a sense of irony and people without years and years and years ago, when I was among the first readers of the joint look because I knew both the Agent and the editor and Amy I learned things I didn't know. But that was not by enlarge of fun enough. No, it was an earnest novel. Have you been at risk? Have you found yourself at risk for doing this? I I don't know. I mean, you know the fact that maybe the fact that reviews have been Um not, you know, not not reviewing it in the in the big places might be that I don't know. Maybe they just have made them wear because you know, all the air sees. They're sitting in their offices and whatever, but so much of this book came out about from my my noticing the great conflict of the Present, which is the difference between You are who you are on the inside and your external qualities. And that's where a lot of the humor begins. And that includes, of course, being perceived as you know, a young Asian woman versus You know how you feel on the inside, or, you know, an old um you know, Gay, um Aging man versus how you feel on the inside. And and so much of the the comedy comes from when these conflicts play out the inside versus the outside when I was in elementary school In the entire school. At that time. There were only two people of color. And one of them was the daughter. Off. A serviceman. At the nearby for Tartan. And she was put In the class. I mean, talk about horrible names. There were things called You won't believe this. I hope you've never heard it. IG see Children. G C. We're intellectually gifted Children and she was in the class and this was considered to be a triumph. That what we now call a person of color was in the I G C class and one of the one of only two in the entire school. So you can imagine how much I had to learn? Yeah, and how much we as a whole culture had to learn. It really was. The time. When segregation was everywhere, unconsciously so and in lurkers that question How do you deal with the impossible subjects that people of color face in? Politically correct society s o. The book is practically like a truck driving into you running you over again and again. Because of your frayed expectations. Yeah, well, I apologized running. You have nothing to apologize for your breaking the barrier, which is what an original novel does. But tell me how you wrote it. I just wrote it thinking about people as people that was basically it as human beings who are funny and sad and angry and all the things that all human beings feel and But they happen to look a certain way on the outside or, you know, some guy want that The Korean man who kills himself was the pastor's, so there are certain expectations of him and then one of the you know the things that Gets the story going is that he aspires to be a writer and then the right that the stories that he, he wrote just quite unexpected, Let's say Um So it Z all that is just playing against type, I guess is what I was trying to go for because I could think everybody's entitled to play against type. I edit a lot. So as I was saying to you the difference between the Air Sea and this finished published version was This is maybe 7% funnier because I was, you know, up to the very last moment, rewriting sentences and that kind of thing, But I was, you know, tweaking things here and there as if I was editing, you know, complicated little film. So let me tell listeners that a R C stands for advanced readers copies and these frequently go out to reviewers and others. Not in final form. So I was warned by Sandy, who I meant by accident at a party that the final book Lurkers is a funding your book, so the book that you will.

"Everyone i'm here with brad stone. I think many of our listeners will know who brat is longtime bloomberg journalist and editor also author of now two books about jeff bezos and amazon brat. Great to have you thank you. Jason longtime recode reader and follower of your work and admire of your work. I feel like the fraternity of of people who know how insanely difficult. It is to crack this company and tell their story is small and so it's really a delight to talk to you And someone who's read the book and understands the company. I appreciate that and yes. This can be a pseudo therapy session as well but We'll start with you so you have a book. It's called amazon unbound. Jeff bezos and the invention of global empire This is sort of the sequel to the everything store which you originally wrote. What were you setting out to do with this. What i sent out to do was to update my history. I had i was proud of the everything store. The everything store continued to kind of resonate. I learned that you know it was. It was a value book for people who were at amazon or in ecommerce or thinking about joining amazon. But it just as the years went by came to be sort of woefully out of date. I mean there was alexa. And there was the expansion into india and there was hollywood and the globalization of the marketplace and the transportation network that they were building and and that was just the beginning when i set out in two thousand seventeen to go okay. I'm going to write another installment of the of the construction of this empire and then there is the whole evolution of a man named jeff bezos bright and the biggest challenge in the biggest the biggest question i had was. How does it all fit together. You know how does one company you know with a couple of hundred thousand employees now over a million you know do so many different things and and and is it linear and and if not how would you organize it into a narrative and the specific questions i had were. How does a company really an online retailer and cloud services company. Come out of nowhere to leapfrog. Google and microsoft and apple in the race to build a kind of artificial intelligence or voice activated computer. So how does alexa happen.

"Life was not easy in the early twentieth century. And we're talking. Like lack of dishwashers vacuum cleaners. I'm talking about death in. nineteen hundred. Left span is forty nine years old. Thanks to things like childbirth war disease. You name it. So when a religious movement called spiritualism promises people away to contact the dead many of them leap at the chance they miss their loved ones and if mind readers fortune tellers and mystics can help dole that pain. They're all for it. One of these devotees is a middle aged woman from saint louis named emily. Hutchings spiritualism is more of an interest or hobby for emily by day. She's a writer and she's also close friends with a housewife named pearl courant. The two of them often spend their evenings in pearls parlor doing all the normal things women do in the night like gaza or talk about an article. Emily's working on while their husbands play cards in the next room. Then in the fall of nineteen twelve pearls father dies. Pearl is devastated by this and as a spiritualist. Emily decides to introduce a new activity to their evenings. A ouija board. You've probably seen a ouija board most likely some kind whore context. They've become a huge part of pop culture. Thanks to movies like the exorcist. Nowadays most people won't go near them but in nineteen twelve ouija. Boards weren't seen as dangerous. They were one of spiritualism is most popular tools. They look a lot like your average board game. They're flat rectangular board with letters and numbers printed across it and the words yes and no written onto corners. It also comes with a smooth flat piece of wood called a plan chat which is placed on top of the board participants. Sit around the board each with a finger on the plan chat and they wait for spirits to move it spelling out messages. So emily brings this board to pearl's house and pearls like listen okay. I'm willing to try it. Why not anything to talk to my dad again for months the two of them play with the ouija board and for months pearl remains unimpressed. The plan chet does move beneath their fingers. But it only seems to spell out gibberish. Nothing worth writing down pearl calls it silly chatter that is until the night of nineteen thirteen when emily and pearl perch the ouija board between their knees and put their fingers on the plan chat.

Then wide receivers mismatches. However why where to position. But when you gotta travis kelsey are when you have Gay man from the forty niners. George kittle desk different. Like an only has a doubt. He's leading the league receiving as a tight end crazy to me. No i can't get gore would take it in auto scenarios that we were talking about right. I was never talked about a wide receiver number three. And i never was. I said i will take lead. I will fill the second. Like see higgins without acting. Get behind drafting pits. Three because tightening is a position of a learning curve in. I can imagine him. You're one doing really well. But i can't imagine him. Actually negatively may be missing out on a lotta assignments. There's a big learning only crazy crazy. Smart ones like. I don't know enough about him to say yes. That's the number three pig. I think you could trade down. Get out of that pick is still bits. That's that's true. But here's the other thing. Whenever someone is pass rushing are sending a blitz like they did against the bengals the first readers the tight end. Nobody scared her drew sample. Nobody can sending on. I'm not saying that i'm not saying that. If they do blitz right and pick goes out for a route is wide open. Like if you can't blitz your linebackers and send a house like they've been doing to us other pain what i am being. They're they're doing that because nobody scared of sample. It's it's all good if he's there but that's another thing that he can do in that area that will help us. Offenses are come on send a blitz go ahead. I'm a hit. You ever saw him over your head. Every time with joe burrow right to pits. Now if he's at number three and you don't feel like he should be picked in that spot because let's say dried out. He runs a bat. Forty or something like that day. Yeah you move back and you can still say pets are unless you ran a four three bulwer tighter position. I can't take title in a number three. I can't i. Just don't i just think that i can finesse get myself out of that is still probably get bits around nine ten spots that ending in get another pick like in the second round or something that i really believe that. That will be like the place for me. The the motive is still the same. I still wanna high end guard fain played his ass off. Last night was very highly rated. I know you were kinda like still reviewing with quit. Spain is a guy that you talk about nasty. You talk about being at some point in his career. He was one of the top guys in the in built with the situation had with him with with buffalo. And everything like there's a lot of stuff. There's nothing wrong with it. I think that's still of a guy as ready to go ahead and lock it in. I think that other guard xavier. Su'a bill in probably out You you already had your center so now what we talk about like so keep in mind. My priorities still land. You gotta go get the guard or you gotta go. Get the tackle in if you do that. Then to me kanesa will is so he was seen enough. Last night is going to take another dude. They're like what if reach though. Like what if the next president l. No i like the guy at timberg. But i'm seeing different things. They say he might go down. To the end of the first the notre dame they in In like two years would from alabama. Those are the two other tackles that are really really like with. The problem is excuse me. From what i see last night. A just what. I know from joe burrow in our priestess allowed on my livestream. Is that a lot of fans do this. Every year. they get so enamored with one position that they say i need all of that. I just need all of that any of that in. I'm not like in last night. Through that timmy than at line is not good enough to consistently santana's at a time we'd probably be pittsburgh two out of those ten times with that line right. I'm smart enough to know that but also smart enough to know. I just wanna game with my backups salon. In this way out steaming if finley had even on the couple he had rented as he could. Iran out yet different. Things could it did. I'm not so bad on his line. That i feel like i have to everything on the line in last night. Proved that in. Spain's there in what i'm saying is if they went and got a Williams like tackle or something like that. I'm getting out the pig. I'm getting out of the number three. I convince myself like i needed. Get more talent. And i need because this. This team will all of injuries in wash. All these guys on our tweet last night mixing joe girl all these guys tweet in new cj. I said you know we need. I need that upset. Backups and i need depth. And i need bodies any players. There's ready all play like this it. They've all this. And i got bodies and i got all these different things in a position. Like talk about the game from jamaica like you don't even have to go to the line back. You had to drive one linebacker. This letter talking about parsons you will arsons. Hadn't seen enough. I haven't gone avid as far as it goes only looked at highlights from our receiver candidates. I think like a month ago was like outfits are bits Hair looking at different tackles or so. I don't know about that. But i would you. You said you have to keep the more wide open. If pratt's plan like that in. Logan wilson is who i think is in a game. Davis gave him in the scheme. Would i think it is. You're going to be a nickel I'm totally ignoring the linebacker position in the draft. Here's the thing. Here's the dilemma. That we talked about best player available right. This right now is currently. Cbs's is saying the top prospects are so this joint right here. this is it got trevor lawrence. They got panay. Mike parsons is third. So say for instance. You don't get any trade offers for number three people like nah. I don't want any any of those quarterbacks who do you take chase jamora. I don't let me blow this up. Okay there we go there. We go there. We go so zag. See quarterback role did that. Wilson just had a game if people are listening to this right now he just knew for three or four times three fifteen like he's gonna run up. This board just fills going to be a bit. Two teams are going.

So is there any scenario where the one reader the rule of one isn't going to be relevant? Well, we talked a lot about homepages. We look at them all the time for real or fake right back home pages are aware. It's really the hardest place to to follow the rule of one you can you can definitely follow the rule of one in terms of finding your one reader and speaking to that reads on the homepage. If you sort of look at okay twenty to thirty percent of your home page visitors are going to be in that place where they're ready to convert the rest of them have just laying there by mistake or they're brand new to your product to your service to your to the idea of you at all, right, they're still exploring their options there shopping around but if you speak to that 20 to 30% of people of visitors to your site who are ready to convert then you can sort of use that as your one reader for your homepage. Okay, so on the homepage Usually have a lot of different options right? It's more like the Hub try to help segment people or help them get to where they want to go. So therefore you have multiple calls to actions. What do you do about that when you're trying to get this one a rule of one thing going? Yeah. So I think you know, we have to emphasize empathize with our visitors, right they want to be directed and of course if we're saying 20 to 30% off home page visitors are in that place where they're ready to convert that means there's a lot of other people visiting there and we don't want to lose them.

So if your first call to action is about taking you up on your your kind of big offer, right whether it's driving it by now add to cart. Or start a free trial if you're like a website or something like that, you're secondary call to action might really be directing the rest of your visitors to opt into your email list. So yeah in that case, you're going to have to ctas right? I've you know, of course a lot of people also will have a third CTA which is to maybe read reviews or compare pricing things like that. I think it really comes down to you need to test but you should always know your number one goal and make sure that you're really focusing on that one goal as much as possible, even though on your page. You're probably also providing other ways for people to take action. So would I be right Meghan saying that the rule of one really starts out with getting your messaging right? Absolutely everything begins with your messaging you need to you need to really nail that down before you're going to be in a good position to optimize for conversions in any other way. So if you're not sure if you've already kind of nailed down On your messaging. Maybe you maybe you've already got that going on, but you're not sure what else to focus on or what to focus on next. That's why we can recreated the great conversion Auto to really help you figure out what you should be focusing on, you know at this point in your business. So go to the conversion optimists.

"Your pain and childbearing and pain. You'll bring forth children your desire show be contract your husband, but he shall rule over you. So, we have a the punishment for the women woman, and therefore in a sense for all women afterwards is this pain in childbirth? And her desires for her husband seemed to be contrary to her husband's desires is eternal struggle in the family, but that the man is the ruler over the woman that's not how we were created in Adam and eve was created eve came from the rib from the side of man to walk with him, and beside, and be as help mate, but sin destroyed that it is destroyed the purity of what was desired in the garden. And Adam he said because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, you shall not eat of it. Cursed is the ground because of you in pain you show? All days of your life thorns and thistles show bring forth four you and you shall eat the plants of the fields by the sweat of your face, you shall eat bread to return to the ground for out of it. You were taken for your dust and to dust. You shall return. Here we see that for man is really harshly spoken to when we see that he listen to the voice of his wife, instead of listening to the Voice of God. And when he did that, he he had sent. The the consequences is that he's going to work all his life just to survive that. The earth that in the garden of Eden was so luscious so fruit everywhere food everywhere, and there's no limits and no needs and everything was perfect has been totally. Destroyed for him now he's going to have to just work hit till he dies just for bread. And when he dies, he will return to the dust, and that wasn't God's original. Plan Adam and Eve were to live forever. They're eating that fruit from the tree of life, and they will never die, but now because of the consequence of sin death has come in to their lives. The man called his wife's name Eve because she was the mother of all living. And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. then. The Lord God said behold the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now let's see reach out his hand and take also the tree of life and eat and live forever. Therefore the Lord God sent him out from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from. He was taken he drove out the man, and at the east of the Garden of Eden. He placed the Cherub him. With a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree life. So guarding the ways the tree of life is at share point. This is another end djelic being. You gotta understand the first readers understood. The world in a different way than we did. Probably I would say the right way.

"What the hell is the rule of one meg. The rule of one is the most important part of your copywriting okay. It's the thing that you can apply to landing pages. Long form sailed pages and emails for higher conversion rates. So what you're saying is that it's important in is uber important. It eliminates distractions and it gives you the opportunity to keep your reader focused on the goal that you've set for your page or your email or whatever it is you're writing and remember. Conversion marketing is all about guiding the reader to take the action. You want them to take so. The rule of one keeps them focused on that action is going to be good. Give it to me okay. So with the rule of one. You've got your one reader. You're not writing to a crowd of people. You're not writing to like a nameless faceless hoard what about my personas guess you're going to choose one persona and you're gonNA flush it out way more than just where they live and how old they are and if they're male or female married kids. Whatever that's just demographics you're going to take your one reader and actually create a person around them like a fictional character like weird science like. Yeah sure a hot babe who will pop out of the computer screen for you. Did I say hot pays at? How Big the autumn. It was really cool is that. I don't think she popped out of a computer screen. She appeared in out of nowhere. So more of a so. Yeah used the demographics right. They're they're good starting place but don't worry so much about answering questions unless you know why you need to know that. Do you need to know that you're one reader is married or unmarried? Maybe but you need to have a reason for why you need to know that are. Don't worry about it you WANNA know. More of the psychographic side the the psychology of that user and the Ethos Graphics. Right what they care about what? Their values are their behavior. And why so? Once you've nailed down who you're one reader is. You're really in a good place to follow the rule of the rest of the way. Okay and so you find your one reader by doing your research you want to interview your customers you're GonNa do Polling on your site You're going to if you don't have customers and maybe you don't have any traffic coming to a website yet. You can do some review mining and forum mining where you sort of eavesdrop on other people's ideal readers or on your ideal reader where they're hanging out online listen to how they're describing their life listen to how they're describing their problem and their pain the outcomes that they're looking for the transformation they want from a product like yours or a service like years that solves their problem so all that's for the one reader that is for the one reader which again is the most like once you figure out everything you need to know about your one reader. Everything else really falls into place much more smoothly that makes sense so the big idea. You're going to help you identify that one big idea. Yeah you're not making up your one big idea. One big idea should come from your reader and it really is going to speak to the that unfulfilled desire that they have a deep desire and it's usually a bigger desire so it's not so much about a feature that they want but an outcome a life change that they are looking for. And once you know this the psychographic side this ethos side of things. Then you'd be able to give them the promise that will make them say. Oh absolutely it. That's a no brainer gas. So you really need to figure out what's holding my one. Read our back. What kind of objection do they have about taking me up on my offer right and once you know that then you know what promise you need to make to them so that it overcomes that big objection right? So you're one offer needs to match your one readers stage of awareness which we're going to talk about next time so hang tight on that one But the one offer can be your product or your service but if you're if you're readers not ready for that maybe they just make you and they're not ready to commit to buying from you then of course you're going to offer them something that doesn't require as much commitment like a lead magnet of some kind of white paper and e book things like that right so you just mentioned some really important. Kosovo often we find the wrong to action in the wrong places. So you have above the fold on the homepage. You'll have a get now our try now with. That might just be a little too aggressive. Yeah so there's there's kind of a split school of thought here like everybody loves to put a call to action with the button right in the hero section and in a sense it kind of looks successful because people like to click right. So that might get a lot of clicks. But we don't know how many people are actually GonNa follow through on a purchase or if those cliques are happening too soon before the one reader is really sold on the offer. Then you know really what's happening after that click and that's what you want to pay careful attention to so sometimes it's a good idea to have that. Cd A right there in the hero section and sometimes you just need to do a little more persuading before you offer that and now a word from US promoting our lead magnet on the conversion optimus dot com. Come one come all hear. The wisdom greet conversion Nado. Let the world renowned crystal-gazing reveal the answers. You seek for your online business.

Push Lesion and how know what keeps your audience buying from you. Go to the conversion optimists dot com and find the answers you seek from the late conversion day so there any scenario where the one reader. The rule of one isn't going to be relevant. Well we talk a lot about homepage. Is We look at them? All the time for real or fake home pages are where it's really the hardest place to to follow the rule of one you can. You can definitely follow the rule of one in terms of finding your one reader and speaking to that reader on the home page if you sort of look at Okay. Twenty to thirty percent of your homepage. Visitors are going to be in that place where they're ready to convert. The rest of them have just landed there by mistake or their brand new to your product or your service to your right into the idea of you at all right. They're still exploring their options. They're shopping around. But if you speak to that twenty to thirty percent of people of visitors to your site who are ready to convert then you can sort of use that as your one reader for your homepage on the homepage. Usually have a lot of different options right. It's more like the hub. The try to help segment people or help them get to where they want to go. So therefore you have multiple calls to actions. What do you do about that when you're trying to get this one rule of one thing going? Yeah so I think you know. We have to emphathized empathize with our visitors. They WANNA be directed and of course if we're saying twenty to thirty percent of homepage. Visitors are in that place where they're ready to convert that means. There's a lot of other people visiting there and we don't WanNa lose them right so we want to help them know what to do next even though they might not be ready to convert. And that's where you might have a secondary call to action so if your first call to action is about taking you up on your your big offer right whether it's be bribing it by now. Add to cart or start a free trial. If you're like a SAS website or something like that you're secondary call to action might really be directing the rest of your visitors to opt into your email list. So yeah in that case you're gonNA have to see. Ta's right I you know of course a lot of people also will have a third T. Which is to maybe read reviews or compare prices things like that. I think it really comes down to you. Need to test.

"It's the guy who became a whiny antiwar activist after the war period America exploited my youth and sent me to kill in baba. But my experience was neither of those things. And I think for most soldiers their experience is neither of those things. It is not a goer fide sort of flag-waving. But it's also not a an anti American kind of thing either. You know, our experience with something else. And I tried to show that in the book as one reader commented to me another veteran, he said. And we were promised a lot of things we're going to happen in this war. You know, things like victory, for instance. And none of that happened and the book really pointed that out for him. And I was glad to see people take that away from the book because I think it's the book is pro military, but it's also deeply skeptical about the war on terrorism, and where we've gone over the last seventeen years. All right. So then the other announcement that I wanted to make no out of you've seen it. It's kinda blown up on my page, and the feedback has been very positive. I just wanted to let everybody know and social media. I that I've made the decision. This is basically going to be my wife month of shows here. And as I said my post, I don't need to reiterate everything, but I I genuinely mean it when it's like these past seven years meeting everybody from the writers of the site the operators who worked at this at what was for dot com. Which became the news rep dot com who've appeared on the podcast, so many guys then just the listeners. This is the doing this shows the first time anybody ever came up to me out of the blue at places say you're in from Safra radio. And I'm not saying that happens every day, but it has happened on occasion. And it reminds me like holy shit. This show is making an impact, and there's people commented that said, hey, started listening, you know, before I was in high school down in college. And it was my mind I've been doing this for seven years nearly since the beginning and I've loved what I've done. I just kinda wanna move onto some different things in my life. This is no surprise to anybody. Like the site has taken a little bit of different direction in the company, and I'm just looking to do something else probably in the radio field. But other things that I wanna do as well. I was telling some people like this might seem field, but like early twenty eight teen I do have passion for fitness. I talked about on the last podcast with Doug and CJ. I was like, you know, what does a small thing on the side wealth to be a an NAS am certified personal trainer. So I started doing the self study on the side and realized like holy shit. This is way harder than I expected because of like memorizing vocabulary on that stuff. And I didn't have the motivation to do it because I was doing this. I was doing some voiceover on the side. And now, I will actually have some time to do that. So that's something. I wanna do. I'm gonna continue to do voice over stuff. And I definitely don't rule out Jack, and I doing another podcast some point possibly because we love to do this. But. I'm just looking to do some other things right now. Yeah. No. I completely understand. And I'm a mentally proud of this podcast. And I think you made it into what it is. You know, I just kind of showed up, and, you know, ask questions of people, although you've been here before I was and yeah were doing the podcast, you know before. I was. Yeah, man. But you know, you made this thing what it is. And just hundreds and hundreds of episodes and interviews, and it's been really incredible. And I'm really proud of the work. We've done here. I think just to be real as far as the website humanity going from software to news rep to and now we're at a point where I don't even know what we do anymore..

"So the way that ice waited to people is people think of doing something like going and ladling soup at a soup kitchen, which may be the right place to start. But ultimately, you're gonna realize anyone can do this. And so I haven't earned something special that allows me to serve myself in humanity. So it's part of it is working your ass off to get a set of skills have real value. And my my whole thing. Here's this may be the biggest problem, we faces a society. People don't remember that skills have utility. They let you do something. You don't learn to build a house to impress your parents? You learn to build a house so people can live in the house you build and once people understand that like holy shit. You're building this house. Somebody can live in it built a home in it have a family sheltered from storms like fuck. It's a real thing, man. And so all of that effort and energy went into the chills right now is so you can create that moment for yourself for other people. It is it is something so much more than going to architecture school, which maybe you went to because your parents wanted that. And they they were architects. So you do that thing for that. And you forget the whole reason you became an architect was to build houses. And so once people realize, oh, I'm putting all this time and energy to build these things because they let me do something. What do I want to do? What do I want to give? What do I want to create when you look at skills from that perspective? It is like it is being a superhero, it is being a superhero you're going to collect these abilities. These abilities actually, let you do something. The fact that superman can fly allows him to save people allows them to other people can't do we all have this opportunity to become capable of the extrordinary to be able to do things other people can't do and that feels so good. The thing is though most the thing that's unique about you is that you're able to come to this realization and develop a a level of maturity and self awareness without having to go to the play it out at the Lambert Guinea dealership, right because most people who would come into that kind of wealth would go and have that experience for a period of time only to discover what you just expressed. But on the other side of it. So why were you able to do that? Why were you able to avoid that experience? And circumvented they say a fool never learns a smart man learns from his mistakes and a wise man learns from the mistakes of others far too often, I've been a fool and have repr-. Mistakes over and over and over. But I really do try to be smart. I'm not usually as wise as I would like to be and just find that. I I learned things Hardaway, but I really do learn them so pain for me is a tremendous instructor. Maybe because I hate it so much and just want to move away from it. But thankfully, I don't run from it. I figure out what I did that made me feel the pain. Whether it's what I value myself or whether it's just hey, bad skill set, and you need to address it and then actually addressing it. So in the time where I was chasing money. And like I said the first readers gave to me, and then the next three years chipped away at my my ability to enjoy my life. So actually in the founding of quest that you learned that lesson. It was in the it was in building wariness technologies. So building wearing technologies I did not enjoy the process. And so at the end of that I'd spent about three and a half years being profoundly unhappy profoundly where it's like, it was hurting my marriage. My wife would wanna talk about work, and I wouldn't wanna talk about it. I would get this sense of dread. As I approached the office. It was just gnarly, man. And it was in that period that I developed really crushing Zion. Because Eos always in over my head because I didn't know anything about business, and it was just really hard to learn..

"Either what you were referring to earlier or something that you can talk about that was an early idea that you really wanted to do ranging from maybe other people in the movie because we do encounter the one older couple where the wife is somehow died, I guess she was killed by by one of the beasts and the husband screams to to end himself. Yeah. Well, hesitate to get into too many specifics with like set pieces because there might be another movie, and you never know. But what ends up there by one thing? I will say that was part of the original vision. And then we. Changed it and then certainly John embrace kind of the later duration. But the the original idea was can you do a movie with no dialogue at all? In. The only words in the entire film. We're supposed to be the I love you at the end. And so that would be like that will always be aversion our minds that would have been interesting to see that we that. We didn't get to do. And then other than that. I mean, I don't know. There's just there's other. There's like certain suspense sequences that could have been different flavor. But I don't know better worse. Just just kind of different. Yeah. One of one of the changes that all all all all proceeds John for for making. This change was in the script that we had been working on the tragedy of the family with with the death of the child happened kind of sporadically as a mystery. So you didn't really have it up front. It was all these like four or five flashbacks where it starts carving out a little more of that narrative and a little more a little more. And you're wondering as the story goes. Along what tore this family apart? But but to John's credit like he came on board. And it was like no you have to tell the audience right away. What the stakes are. And so you have to kill that fucking kid right away in the first ten minutes. And it's it's great because it sets the rules. It sets kind of everything that the family is up against and then it sets the cork court tragedy to it. So it's a movie that that has rules. And I want to talk about that. Now that we're in this is what we're so many important rules that you set down because there's so many things going on him. They're walking on sand which would have taken forever to poor. They have the soundproof room. But there's there's the red lights all the other codes going on. So what were some of the important rules to you? Well, you know when when talking about the rule is like Scott Nyerere sound junkies. Like, our heroes are the people that work at Skywalker ranch. And like some of the first readers of the script were sowed designers that we know to get feedback on. But the the big the core rule is you make a sound you die pretty simple and for us. It was always about. Making sure that not only did that track. But also that the movie worked as a metaphor metaphor for broken communication, a metaphor for trying to protect your family. So we had almost more conversations about that than specific. Like, what sounds are worse than others? But I guess one core rule was we always felt like a human sound was more dangerous than you know. Like a like a whatever like a vault. Did exactly. Thank you so much kind of inanimate object fine. So that was that was a rule, and you know, we would talk about that stuff. But for us, we're we're emotion guys we care about how movie makes you feel perhaps maybe more. So than what the what you're thinking about it when you're watching so no suspension of disbelief, please in a big part too. And he sort of a horror movie or scifi movie, and you hear some people were debating like like would the the kid. No in the beginning that that turning on the spaceship and making a noise would maybe resulting. Some bad news for him. Because because I think what was it was a day. What was what date eighty nine eighty nine eighty nine? So it's it's still fresh enough because the movie jumps forward in time. And I'm just curious about what were some of the suspension of disbelief issues..

"Johnson prevail in the critical fear. I mean, not now, but in his time I feel like even in his even in mcpherson's own day, the consensus among the quickly became this is not a translation in the way that the first readers assumed it was right. But McPherson himself actually stood for parliament and became a member of parliament for the rest of his life. We here here which made him very rich. Even though there's no, there's no record of actually doing anything. So maybe he wasn't the least corrupt kind of politician of his day. The kind of guy make a lot of deals to get a lot of fat pensions without actually accomplishing anything with his with his parliament windfall. He bought an estate in Inverness Scher and actually became a Scottish man of property. Unfortunately, he did. So at the time of the Highland clearances, which was kind of the famous. Broke the back of Scotland, basically being closure of all the fields so that the the former farmers could hurt sheep for their masters. This was another big founding event in the Scots Irish emigration to America. Whoa. Yeah, exactly. And so here is McPherson the guy who probably created the soul of Scotland out of the whole cloth kicking all these farmers off their land. So he can put up fences for sheep and make a little more money every season Roenick ironic and Byron. Thomas Jefferson said later in his life that even if it was not authentic, that AUSSIE was quote equal to the best of antiquity. Wow. So I mean, this is a little bit of a chink in Jefferson's armor as like a literary maven at this point he's kinda. He was so moved, right? You're invested, right? Yeah. Like if there's a book you loved as a kid and you read it again and you're like, this isn't great. You still love it, right? I'm sure there were people that said that look, this Milli Vanilli album is still a great record. It doesn't matter that it was recorded by some German studio musicians, and it holds up when I read Salinger and von again, the work that seemed so true to me as a pissed off fifteen or seventeen year old today, I see a limitation. You can't get into vaunting it anymore, but it's still so low. So deepened my DNA. I still just love those books even if I read them now and I'm like, yeah, I see what's. Kind of facile about this, right? Don't listen. Here's a, here's some advice from a friend. Don't read boop hausky now. Because he's the ultimate example of that when he died, Jim McPherson was buried in poet's corner in Westminster Abbey very close to his arch nemesis Samuel Johnson hitting, although Johnson's reputation survives, even though Johnson actually wrote real stuff and McPherson was possibly the worst kind of forger fraudster in Charlotte. He's just inches away. I mean, it's pretty good because he because you're saying McPherson never confided in any of his letters to any of his close friends..
