Watch the Magic Mike movie
Then, read the article Magic Mike’s Guide to Seducing Your Audience (and Leave Them Panting for More)
Learn how a movie about a male stripper teaches you about engaging your audience (as a blogger) and giving them what they really want.
Paige: [sees Mike counting money] Wow. That’s a lot of ones.
Magic Mike: There are some fives in there.
Paige: Oh, ok. No twenties?
Magic Mike: Oh, you don’t wanna know what I have to do for twenties.
As some of you may know, I’ve been online and blogging since 2007. I was going through some saved bookmarks recently and found an article from back in 2012. This was a time when I was burning the midnight oil and procrastinating about going to bed or watching the sunrise. I fondly remember reading this long but most enjoyable article on Copyblogger – a must-read blog for all bloggers. It was a great excuse for my husband to watch the movie with me (I thought so anyway).
I’m a fan of both Magic Mike movies, especially the second one. Who can resist Joe Manganiello of True Blood (werewolf) fame and Channing Tatum in various states of undress? I digress.
So, back to the marketing aspects of this great article. It highlights some of the essentials for good web copy:
- Know what you’re selling
- Grab their attention
- Provide consistently compelling content
- Reward loyal fans
- Promote new talent
- Make the ask
