Stop, Thief!

Here’s where you can enter your email address to get an early link for the Mass Control 7-Pay Offer.

In case you didn’t watch the whole video, here’s the deal. On Friday November 6th, I’m offering the final 148 copies of Mass Control 2.0 …and this time you can get a copy using a 7-pay plan.

I may or may not release it again in the future. At this point, I have no plans to do so at all. So this could be the last time it’s offered.

What’s really special about this is I’m giving 100% of the first payments to the Angela Shelton Foundation, which helps women who are victims of abuse. So if you want to grab a copy, take advantage of this first-time-ever payment plan and help others in the process, put your email in the form above and I’ll hook you up with an early link.

It’ll probably sell out really fast since there’s only 148 copies left and since this payment plan is so accessible.

    Look, if you’re a thief and you and Trey are psychotics, then I’m ready to check myself into whatever secure institution you’re currently being held in!

    Methinks it sounds like a fun place to be.

    Thanks for giving us more valuable free results in advance.

    Go bless you.

    Another great video Frank. Who else can say “watch this” and everyone does? I agree re following authors stle: Not that I was smart enough to make the connection to my own marketing, but hey, I’m doing my best to copy YOU, that’s for sure! If you’ve ever read Mary Higgins Clark I think you’ll agree she’s a good one to copy too.

    Just a beginner! I sure appreciated your presentation and look forward to hearing more from you! At 82, you’re never to old to learn. Time I started some books for ideas.

    Hi Frank,
    Would love to do mass control, but even at 297 a month it is way beyond my capabilities at this time. Father of 7, former hippie kinda guy you remind me of the real me years ago. When I get my internet business going and start making money OrI if my kids make and give some money to me, then I can get some of mass control. (I’ve always wanted to control the masses.)

    Mr Kern,

    Judging from what research has found out,I just wonder. People, generally, in this nation don’t read. Heck, even the brightest – students applying to the top medical schools – have difficulty writing. Where’s hope for marketers motivated by cash-jackpots?

    Take care …

    Awesome content as usual Frank.

    I really digg the Patterson style as well, and I totally agree with the points you make with regards to that. Robbins was a new discovery for me, and I’ll def check it out. Thank you for the tips.

    You rock man,

    If you like the idea of enhancing your marketing ability by reading trash fiction, you’ve got to look up Robert Parker.

    I just finished the 37th book in his “Spenser” Private Detective series. 289 pages in 2 days. And in a span of about a year and half I’d read all 36 of the other books.

    Fast moving, great dialogue, and great evolving of the character over time. His Jesse Stone series has grabbed my attention too. If you like tough guy characters, these two series are for you.

    Also, since I finished the Parker series I’ve started reading John MacDonald’s “Travis McGee” novels. Another tough guy series. This character reminds a little of Kern.

    He’s a man who detests the “system” so he lives on a house boat off the coast. He looks tan all year. And people underestimate him based on how he looks.

    I don’t know how tough Frank is but Travis is a bad motherfucker. He earns his living as a renegade. The copy below comes from one of his books and it wonderfully gives you a description of how he brings value to the world…

    So I told her the retirement was accurate, except I am taking it in little hunks whenever I can afford it. “It’s a tricky, complex indifferent society, Puss. It’s a loophole world. And there are a lot of clever animals who know how to reach through the loopholes and pick the pockets of the unsuspecting. Carefully done, the guy who has been plucked clean has no way of getting it back. There are a thousand perfectly legal acts that can be immoral, or amoral, acts. Then the law officers have no basis of action. Attorneys can’t help. The pigeon might just as well have dropped his wallet into a river of crocodiles. He knows right where it is. And all he can do is stand on the muddy shore and wring his hands. So I’m the salvage expert. And I’ve known a lot of crocodiles. So I make a deal with him, fifty-fifty. When a man knows his expectation of recovery is zero, recovering half is very attractive. If I don’t make it, I’m out expenses.”

    John MacDonald’s writing style mesmerizes me. This character’s philosophy mirrors mine and I identify strongly with Travis. Just like Frank’s writing does.

    Check out these authors. While Robert and John may not have sold 750 million books, they’ve sold millions, McGee series 32 mill on it’s own. Maybe you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.

    thanks for this wonderful lesson on how to copy the successful authors. IMHO it should not only apply to copying their writing style but also (if possible) the topics they are writing about. Books are on bestseller lists for a reason (writing style being one of them).

    Nice…. RIA rules, one of the most effective things
    people can do to sell their stuff.

    Great lesson in story and people can go put this
    stuff to use in their business immediately.

    Funny enough, my 13YO son has been tearing thru Patterson’s
    stuff lately. Guess he has a couple of young adults series;
    Daniel X and Maximum Ride.

    Was talking w/ my boy last night to get some insight on why he
    likes them. It was also cool to talk w/ him about the
    story lines and types that Patterson uses.

    Told him you did a video that has some info on Patterson.
    He remembers you as the guy who has that cool Legends Arcade game…

    I said “that’s right son, keep reading that stuff, learn to write
    and maybe you can have one in “your” secret headquarters someday”.

    You’re absolutely right about best-selling authors. They clearly have a system that works, and works well. It’s not just the style, it’s the story. If the story is dull, forget keeping their attention. Even an ad can tell a really short story. At it’s heart that’s what all storytelling does, is to tell us a story that we get involved in. We care about the characters. In a sense, we become them.
    Whether you know it or not, you do that with your e-mails. We care about the main character, in the Frank Kern story. WE care, because you have told us your story, in an interesting way. You continue to tell us that story, and we want to “buy” it. You introduced a skimpy form of the “woe to win” story, as Frank Bruchard calls it. It’s why so many try to use it, but they aren’t really telling a “story.” It’s more like the same story. over and over again. It may be true, but it sounds fake, because they have no passion for “their” story. You do.
