5 Ways To Drive Engagement In 2021 With This One Neat Trick

Use a Fiver

1.) Write a title with the number 5 in it. People like the number 5 because it's not too big and it's not too small.

Set It and Forget It

2.) Write your post and then forget about that shit. Don't look at it, don't respond to comments, basically don't engage at all.

Get Your Grifter Friends to Share Your Post

3.) It's not good grift if no one sees it. Make a deal with your friends that if they share your grift, then you'll share their grift.

Keep It General and Worthless

4.) Don't ever give away any valuable information. Why would someone buy your course or eBook if they've read it already. Make sure not to hamper your profits by posting any ACTUAL useful information.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

5.) Don't ever dispose of your grift. Keep juggling your posts over and over again. Just make a small change like changing the date from 2020 to 2021. Share 10 items instead of 5. Share 8 items. You get the picture. Don't ever throw anything away.

Always Make It Look Like You're Helping

6.) Don't forget to drop that bonus tip. People will really think you care. They won't know that you're following rule 5 and you just cut a post of 10 tips down to 6. You'll be giving less but they thing they'll be getting more.

Thanks for reading and that's all y'all.

I...I just can't express how "on the nose" this is.

But the sad thing is - it works.

Insta-follow and a β€πŸ¦„ from me! Brilliant 🀣🀣

The big question is - will you respond to or heart this comment, if you do I will be mad that you broke your own rules πŸ˜‹

Lol. Thanks, Tim! I know this is meant to be sarcasm but I feel like I am guilty of point 5. πŸ˜‚

For articles, I try to make sure they are detailed guides rather than short-word articles. Know I cannot say if it's distinguishable from "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" or not. πŸ˜…
