Anyone use a fake name or a fake photo?

11 replies
Lots of landing pages show a pic (usually of a guy in a suit, cuz that looks all professional, when we know that IRL it's some guy who hasn't shaved in a week and shaggy hair who hasn't left his house in days ) next to a paragraph that says something like "Hi, my name is Joe Smith and I'm going to introduce to you the [insert whatever you're selling] system..."

How many of you guys use pen names?

How many of you use pics that aren't really of you?

Just wondering.

    I often use a pen name (the Old Coot) but always use my own picture - I need the sympathy vote!

    You might not like what I say - but I believe it.
    Build it, make money, then build some more
    Some old school smarts would help - and here's to Rob Toth for his help. Bloody good stuff, even the freebies!

    Yep - this is me - but to my readers I will always be 35! I never pay much attention to testimonials unless they're high profile. But - it's part of the sell, what people expect to see....

      Hey mate,

      I use my REAL name.

      Which now is Twenty Twenty.

      Of course I was born with a different one....

      Changing my name legally, seems to help people get that I

      1. Am a little out there. (Which I am...)
      2. A lot committed to my Vision (Which I am too.)

      I changed my name to Twenty Twenty, the most commonly associated number with Vision, to help me help myself and others to discover and live up to their Inner Visions.

      Have a great day, and live your vision.... no body else can!

      Twenty Twenty
