If you could have any superpower...

by BradKasten 19 replies
I'm a huge fan of comic books.

And like most comic book geeks, I love to think about the one superpower I would choose above all others.

A lot of people choose the ability to fly like Superman.

I've never liked that choice. What's the good of flight if you don't have supermans strength? If you hit a bird going 110 mph, you're toast!

Another popular choice is Wolverines retractable claws.

I’m not crazy about this one either. I mean the claws are cool and all but not very practical. Plus the only reason Wolverine can use those claws is because of his super regeneration. Wolverine is basically immortal.

(although - SPOILER ALERT - he did die in the last movie which really bummed me out)

A third popular choice is teleportation like Nightcrawler from the X-Men.

Teleporting is a pretty good one in my opinion. Except for teleporting into a wall or the middle of a volcano, I don't see a whole lot of downside with teleportation.

But the devil is in the details. Can you only teleport to a place you've been before? Is there a maximum distance you can travel? Can you teleport physical objects with you or do you show up naked everywhere you go?

As you can see, picking a superpower is a very tricky decision that requires a lot of careful thought.

Let's shift this gears slightly and talk about internet marketing. If you could have one IM superpower what would it be?

Driving traffic?

Product creation?

Copywriting?

Creating software?

Public speaking?

Something else?

Think of all the advantages and disadvantages of each Super IM Power. And remember you can only choose one to be Super at.

Which one would you choose and why?

    The power to be a moderator. So that i can automatically create filters and block messages from people asking me to join their bitcoin operation, or offer me 15% to join their 2-tier affiliate/MLM/whatever program.

    Hypnotizing people via Youtube video to buy every stuff I offer when I said so to them.

    I do have a superpower. I'm ADHD. When I focus on something I become what I call scary good at it. I call it laser focusing. Nothing exists until my project is finished. I used to avoid starting projects to avoid that feeling. Then someone in this very forum told me I should embrace it.

    I'll opt for 'Traffic'.

    Since, if you can drive traffic, you can do anything. You can become a millionaire in a month. It is the toughest part in the IM.

    My super power choice: Sell anything to anyone.

    What good is reading minds, hypnotizing, laser focus, and mega traffic if you can't make the sale?

    Hey Brad,
    Bravo. I love it. Well written and weaving a story seemingly unrelated to IM and then slowly changing gears and turning it into IM was brilliant


    Anyway, I think being a World Class Copywriter for me. Once you get the chops and network with the right people you can write your own ticket

      Thanks for the great message Robert!

      I'm with you. I would personally choose copywriting as my superpower. It's such a valuable skill that not many people have. I love reading great copywriting books and am so inspired by the masters like Gary Halbert and Eugene Schwartz.

      I'm a long way from being World Class but I'm working on it.

      Thanks again,
      Brad

    I do have a superpower. I'm ADHD.
    I have a friend who says I get "Autistic."

    Sometimes I can't disengage even when I want to.

    I used to avoid starting projects to avoid that feeling. Then someone in this very forum told me I should embrace it.
    I've told a number of people on this forum, that very thing.

    In my first three or four years in IM, I did a staggering amount. I hear people talk about having 10 or 20 hours a week or less to invest in IM and I can't imagine how slow that must be. I did 18-20 hour days six or seven days a week because I was so hooked into what I was doing.

    Sometimes, "crazy" is good!

    I'll just opt for the power to produce money out of thin air. With a set amount limit every day. Although this power might lead to inflation.

    Why not skip all of the above and just get the power to teleport anybody's money into your account without them minding it?

        The fun is spending all that dough!

        I understand life is more fun when you're cruising on a 20,000,000 foot long yacht!
