The First Clambake Video Smackdown… Or is it?
Okay… okay… I went soft.
What’s here is not a smackdown per se. It’s more of a kind and gentle nudging.
What happened was I edited this conversation so as not to come across as attacking the other party. I just didn’t want to hold him to the flame when that’s not what he signed up for in the first place.
And who is this other party?
None other than Eric Barton… the winner of last week’s contest.
In payment for winning the little “contest” Eric won 20 minutes on the phone with me. For those 20 minutes Eric wanted me to talk to him about his own website.
Sort of a hotseat kind of thing.
And the truth is, the seat got a little heated as we went over the 20 minutes… and even past 30.
But I didn’t want to to put it all out there. I’m not looking to crush anyone in public.
Plus… I figured you guys could talk about all the stuff I cut out. Because even though there are a couple learning moments… an exercise and a big takeaway in this call, there are obvious copywriting 101 mistakes I left out of the video.
I leave those to you all to point out. Let’s start a discussion so we can all help Eric together.
Plus… I want to hear from you all about whether or not “going soft” is the right thing to do in this instance.
I mean, I told Eric I may be using this call on the Clambake and he gave his approval… Does that mean all bets are off? Is a verbal smackdown then okay?
I want to know what you think. Be sure to chime in…
Also… let me know if you want to see more of these kinds of videos in the future.
Anyway… here goes.
