Dr. Jeremy Weisz here, Founder of inspiredinsider.com I talk with inspiration entrepreneurs and leaders today is no different. I’ve Ben Glass. He’s at Great Legal Marketing and BenGlassLaw. I will formally introduce Ben in a second. Ben, I always like to talk about other episodes, people should check out on the podcast, you know, and a mutual friend Brian Kurtz. I think he’s the most guested on my show out of any guests. I think may have had them three or four times amazing guest and direct response genius and I love and Ben does to geek out on direct response marketing. I had Ron Popeil on if anyone’s heard of Ron Popeil. He’s like the infomercial King. Unfortunately, he passed away this year. But he you know if you’ve heard But wait, there’s more. That’s Ron Popeil. So check him out Perry Marshall. And, and there’s many, many more. Ben, who are your favorites? Direct response? I know, you’re gonna say Dan Kennedy, but who are your favorite people of all time in direct response that you’ve learned from?

So I think so. I think Kennedy for sure. Jay Abraham is is another great guy that I’ve learned from, you know, and I think the so the youngins Jeremy, they miss going back and reading the Al Reese’s. And these these, his the books about advertising and direct response, when we didn’t have the internet when TV was limited, when you had coupons, people had to mail checks back to like going and understanding that history because the principles of direct response marketing don’t change. Why? Because we’re dealing with human beings, right? Interestingly, I’m a lawyer, it’s the same principles that apply when I’m speaking to a jury. It’s the same thing of dealing with human beings on the other side, we’re going to make an emotional decision. And that tried to back it up with logic. Right. So a lot of parallels there. And again, anyone who’s in this world who doesn’t have a library, I see your part a part of your library behind you of of the history of advertising and marketing and great advertising, really is missing an opportunity to excel and highly in whatever field is highly crowded, right? Uber competitive today.
