    A fun email for Friday. I hope you enjoy!

    Edition: Friday, May 12th, 2023


    🎤 Listen to this email here:

    #1.) Swipe:

    A simple but effective flyer....this guy getting free dating leads with a simple physical flyer 😂


    It's a solid flyer too!



    #2.) Wisdom:

    What I’m seeing with AI stuff for creators:

    You be creative and make things....then the AI creates all the “supporting content” like tags, captions, timestamps, bullet points etc.

    It's personally been saving me tons of time on tasks aren’t AS important.

    For example, making video "chapters" is a pain, but now AI can do that stuff:


    So neat!

    #3.) Interesting:

    Jobs getting destroyed (or changing) is scary, but throughout history as jobs get destroyed, higher-paying and better jobs are often created.

    For example:

    Here's 333 jobs that no longer exist, or have been radically changed:



    On the flip side, here's 333 jobs that've been created in the last 20 years alone:



    I've already started radically shifting what it means to be a copywriter but utilizing AI everyday.

    The advancement in this area is nuts. For example I've been playing with Google Bard (the Google version of ChatGPT), and it's pretty awesome.

    Instead of "typing out" a response, it delivers it as a fully done article. You can then click through 3 different drafts, which is super helpful for generating ideas!


    This is a tool that didn't exist in the world till like....YESTERDAY!

    Kind of wild to have all these extra capabilities, feels a bit like a superpower.

    #4.) Picture:

    My friend Sam lives a few doors down from me, and we "pop-in" to each others houses all the time. This is how Sam sees if I'm home.

    He's like a real life Dennis The Menace 😂


    #5.) Essay:

    The point of copywriting is to know how to increase every feeding funnel into your business...


    ...it's an omni-skill that can be applied to ANY business you run:

    That's why I love copywriting as a skill, it can be applied to ANY industry you go into.

    #6.) Sketch:

    Remember this chart from above?


    My friend Chris Dunn made this cool Mind Map out of it that breaks down copywriting into sub-sections:


    The way he did was:

    1.) Tell ChatGPT "Please create a detailed mind map of [INSERT WHATEVER] using the markmap.js formatting.

    2.) Copy the output text and paste in https://markmap.js.org/repl

    3.) Save interactive HTML file and open it.

    This is the result, a neat "mind map" of "COPYWRITING" broken down into little sections!

    I did this myself, and used the topic "CREATING A POPULAR EMAIL NEWSLETTER" to make this mind map:


    Kinda neat!

    I hope you enjoyed these Friday tid-bits!

    I love the "Looking for Girlfriend" poster.

    I was curious to know how it worked for him, so I called the number.

    The recording said that his mailbox was full. 

    So, that's a good sign. 😎

    This mind map prompt quaked me. 

    I've been trying to easily organize a TON of cybersecurity documents for our SOC2 certification (🚨very boring alert!🚨)

    With this, I was able to quickly create a mind map and hyperlink each doc. 

    BIG help

    YES! I think it could be incredibly helpful to breakdown a process into it's core components.

    Try that "Looking for GF" flyer here in India, and the next thing I'd find myself being hounded by the moral police. 

    No wonder why both Sales and Dating are still not encouraged by most Indian parents. <weird>
