Learn Covert Hypnosis in Selling Hypnotically.
“Although I’m an avid reader of human behavior, psychology, subliminal messaging and other fascinating topics surrounding the conscious and subconscious mind; this was my first book journeying into the world of hypnosis. And I must say, by the end of the book, I was pumped! Here’s my review.
The first chapter or so I felt a little underwhelmed. It was telling me a lot of concepts, point of views and techniques I already knew. Since I am well-read in cognitive psychology and perception alteration, I thought… it’s just the first chapter. Let’s keep reading; which I’m glad I did.
The sections that followed were so fantastic that I felt I was highlighting whole chapters. I’m pretty sure that my kindle is all lit up with the Chapter: Exploring the Mind. This chapter really broke down hypnosis for me. Before I started reading, I was highly skeptical and by the time I finished reading the author’s very concise explanation, I discovered the scientific reasoning behind hypnosis. I really dig the author’s style of taking such a complicated matter and breaking it down in layman’s terms. The information provided got me firing off into different directions; making me question everything around me. Is Netflix binge watching a form of hypnosis? How many times have I experienced Highway Hypnosis? How has the Law of Conflict influenced my life, personally? The assertions in “Selling Hypnotically” will get you to reevaluate all aspects of your life and what you know to be true; at least it did for me.
I was intrigued by the NLP techniques laid out for conversational hypnosis when selling my services. I started using the subtle subliminal language in my website content as well as in my conversations with current and potential clients of mine. I’m noticing that using the tips in this chapter, I instantly became more confident and self-assured in statements I make to my clients; which I love. I even started to use the conversational hypnosis tips in my personal life. My fiancé finally caught on after 2 weeks (I think I wasn’t being subtle towards the end lol) and told me to stop messing with his brain.
There was an entire chapter devoted to having an entrepreneurial mindset that I felt was like a clinical hypnosis session in and of itself. I’m a big fan of “The Secret,” and I felt that this chapter was needed in this book to connect the ideas together. To really adopt the suggestive selling outlined in the book, I think you need to understand and fully accept the laws of attraction. I enjoyed this chapter immensely.
The final chapters were correctly named “Bonus” chapters. My goodness, the author floods you with SO MANY great marketing tips; I wasn’t expecting that at all and felt I got more than I expected to. Being a marketer myself, I know for a FACT that any business owner that reads this book and follows the marketing tips to a “T,” WILL see dramatic results in their online presence. Kudos to Richard Barker for being an expert not only in the field of hypnosis, but in marketing as well. Truly, hat’s off to the author with those bonus chapters. I also learned a lot about the world of show business and when I start making media appearances, I now have some good solid insider tips to follow.
Reading the book has changed my perception of the world around me. I now know that, “I don’t see the world, I feel it.” I’m noticing “covert hypnosis” everywhere! I can’t watch a movie, tv show or even a comedy special without noticing the hypnotic techniques found in the media. I love learning new things that make me second guess what I know to be true. I love information that changes my perception and forces me to look at old beliefs in a new light. This book did just that… and this information was so cheap; 8 bucks and poof, a third eye has been opened.
Love the book; it’s an easy read that’s packed with insightful information for anyone that is selling or marketing or product.”
