How They Persuade: Jill Stanton

How They Persuade is not your regular interview series (What? You expect regular from me? WTF is wrong with you?)
Instead, this is a unique interview style interrogation where I drill my guests with some random scenarios and they need to tell me how they will persuade the other person in that scenario.


I have with me today Jill Stanton. Who is not only my online crush but also someone who I look up to in a lot of ways.



Jill’s biggest OMG moment in business

Her first ever $100,000 launch. Jill spent $3500 on ads and expected to make $50,000


Biggest FML moment

Spending $5k on creating a guest blogging course which sold…zero. Cue ugly crying and day drinking.


Biggest WTF moment

Sending out private member links to a full list of approx 17k people (no, they weren’t members)


You have a product it does not work the way it is supposed to work. It does not deliver the results you promised it would deliver. And someone calls you out on that, publicly. What would you do?

Address it publicly, straight away. If my product wasn’t delivering I’d probably email all of the members and offer a free training session or a master class to get them moving on the right track.


Someone buys your product, plagiarizes it and sells it as their own. How would you deal with that situation?

I would certainly get a lawyer to draft up a cease and desist. I would just lawyer up, first. Secondly, I would absolutely email that person to let them know.


Someone buys your program, consumes the content, and files a chargeback claim with their credit card company. How would you deal with that?

I’d screenshot everything. And I’d fight it tooth and nail cause I’m like no. Fuck that noise.


Someone asks you an open question on your opinion on either a program or a person or an ideology that you know does not work, is bogus or fraud. What would you do?

Absolutely, if I don’t believe in it or if I think it’s bullshit or if I think it’s misleading or irresponsible which I feel like a lot of stuff that’s happening right now which is super misleading and insanely irresponsible on the entrepreneur’s end I’d call it out.

I have zero problems calling out bullshit online.

Where can you throw money at Jill?

Head on over to and that’s where you can read about everything that’s  going on inside the monthly membership community.
