Attila frontman selling phone number to fans for $50 a month
Attila frontman Chris Fronzak (aka Fronz, aka Fronzilla) is a known hustler. In addition to Attila, he's got myriad business endeavors currently active (mobile app, merch line, rap outfit). Add yet another to his list. Yesterday, Fronzak sent out this email to his "fans":
"Hey, this is Fronz! First of all I would like to thank you for supporting Attila, it truly means a lot to me. The reason I am sending you this email is because I want to personally invite you to join my brand new website before I make it available to the public. I feel like you deserve the first opportunity to join before anyone else. What is my website? My subscription site is a place where you can learn and interact with me on a DAILY basis. I've been through a lot in my life and I know for a fact that I can use my experiences and knowledge to benefit you. Whether you strive to be an entrepreneur and work for yourself, you want to start a band or clothing line, or you want some daily inspiration to put a smile on your face, my website is PERFECT for you! "If you join today I will give you my personal phone number so you can text me at any time! No, this isn't a joke! You'll be able to text or call me any time you'd like (just give me time to respond lol). I've always wanted to figure out a way to communicate with you guys on a personal level, and I finally found the solution!The cost for this privilege is $50/month. You might be wondering why you should pay when his number will leak. Fronz addresses the issue with this: "It doesn't matter if my phone number leaks because ONLY people who are saved in my contacts can reach me. The only way to be in my contacts is to subscribe. It is impossible to text/call me unless you are subscribed." And for anyone accusing Fronz of charging too much, he counters:
"$50 is a very reasonable price considering what you're getting. You aren't just getting access to blogs and videos, you're also getting a direct line of contact to reach me on my personal cell phone. Everyone has individual needs, so besides offering general advice, I am also offering you PERSONALIZED advice and guidance suited to your needs!"Interested parties can subscribe via Fronzak.com
