Everything I’ve Learned from Ben Settle

Ben Settle is a smart dude when it comes to both copywriting and business.

I absolutely trust his knowledge on both of those things (as opposed to his thoughts on health issues or public policy, neither of which I would recommend).

My notes are not going to do his knowledge justice so I highly recommend you sign up for his monthly Email Players Newsletter.

I do not recommend his “Biz Haunts” social lair that is very little biz and very much haunts. It’s basically just a bunch of people complaining about “wokeness” (whatever that is). If you’re into that sort of thing, it’s definitely the place for you and you should check it out. But I’ve got enough negativity in my life and more than 9/10 posts are Ben et al. complaining about something.

This page contains all of my notes of everything I’ve learned from Ben Settle.

Marketing Universe Secret #1 – No More “Marketing” Campaigns

Stop thinking of everything as “marketing” and start thinking of it as “world building.”

Every project needs to be a part of building the/your world. If it isn’t, get rid of it.

You are not the marketer; you are the dungeon master.
