Show Notes

This month we had a very special round table discussion with NLP and SE Genius, as well as contributor, Brad Smith. We discussed the many tactics and secrets that marketers and sales people use to make us part with our cash. These “secrets” are now revealed with full details as well as practical tips on how we can practice and use these skills in our social engineering audits.

Here are some of the topics we discussed and special podcast notes:

  • We talked about the latest update to the S.E.T Tool. With amazing new features, if you haven’t already, check it out now!
  • NLP has a very interesting history and Brad introduces us to some of it
  • We talk about some of the items in our latest Newsletter like redirection and agreement framing
  • Listen as Brad talks about how he will be stealing our wives – DO NOT BRING YOUR WOMEN AROUND BRAD 🙂 (love ya man)
  • We talk extensively about how Pepsi and Coke reframed themselves
  • Have you read the book Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell? If not Brad says it can change the way you think about Framing
  • We then discuss many aspects of Framing and how it applies to SE and NLP in marketing
  • Have you ever noticed that 99% of the ad’s that involve watches have the hands at 10 and 2? Why? It closely mimics a face smiling at you. Don’t believe us check this out?
  • Need a great NLP Reference? Salad out of the UK is a recommended site from Brad to learn all about NLP.
