This entire post was an upsell. Pretty smart; the only problems are (1) upsells are bad ideas on forums since it's a community and not a sales page and (2) he has nothing to sell me! This guy is indeed a troll, but you can learn something from him.
1) Make it seems exclusive. If it's a SECRET people will want to hear about it. The word "SECRET" is one of the most powerful yet flimsy words in the English lexicon.
2) Back the "SECRET" up with statistics. 52% of people buy lottery tickets as their prime financial strategy. X% of people are overweight but Y% of people are not exercising the right way.
3) Promise something. "GUARANTEED" is also one of those strong yet flimsy words because it doesn't mean anything yet it promises something you probably would have expected anyway.
4) Again, key words. Look at all those capitalized words. How many times have you seen those words on sales pages and on television commercials? Probably a million times. Yet they retain their power.
5) Drive the point home. "Let me repeat" and things of that nature. There's a point to be made about people: they do stupid things and rely on hope. That's why 52% of them buy lottery tickets. Do YOU want to be one of those people? No way, cuz you're not stupid! Let me show you how you, a smart guy/gal/honey badger, can save yourself thousands and make millions!
6) Make em feel smart. Your audience is obviously not the 52% who buy lottery tickets. Your audience is the 48% who do not and who are seeking the "secret" to wealth. "You will look for a golden nugget and you will find it" implies that it is hidden yet the audience is smart enough to find it on their own. (This may be the mistake he's alluding to when referring to marketers: they assume, although correctly, that people are generally stupid but they let that assumption show).
7) Cater to the "smart people's" weaknesses. I already explained this.
I didn't really know this stuff before this post but now I understand it better. Thank you Mr. Troll for at least teaching ME something.
