Just googled him. Quite unimpressed. Thats not to say theres nothing to be gained from his course, some people are good at collecting information and repeating it, he himself and the agency just dont seem to have done that well.
But yeah, like levels said, it seems like fake wealth.
Iโ€™m not trying to defend the guy but why itโ€™s considered normal to do a quick google search on someone and form a strong opinion about them even though we had no clue they existed 5 minutes ago? ๐Ÿ˜‚ itโ€™s ok to not have an opinion about something
i didn't just do a quick google search, checked his website, his basic company accounts too (doesn't show PL, just assets), etc. And i'm not saying he hasnt made any money, he has done well, especially for his age, i'm saying he hasn't done as well as he seems to be trying to make you think he has.
I also saw his instagram, seen the clothes he wears, champagne he drinks, saw his youtube channel, watched bits of one of his videos, and i live in London so over all can get a good indication of the places he goes, and it just doesnt match up.
Anyway, again, not saying he hasn't made money, he has definitely done well for a 21 year old, but done well for a 21 year is far from super knowledgeable internet marketing guru. And hey, if it inspires you to get started then its done its job.
But my point is, the wealth he's trying to show, does not seem there. Unless all he cares about is watches and nothing else. But again based on the titles of his youtube videos and the way he speaks in some of them, i doubt it.
I can vouch for bkltjrbkqpuicdf having a _keen_ eye for wealth ๐Ÿ˜‚
lol, whys keen highlighted?
or italic
man-shruggingskin-tone-2
i've also just come accross so many people like that out and about! Before they used to be club promoters, now many are youtubers and MLM guy
I guess that for me what matters most is if he can teach me something or not, all these wealth display is just marketing and as long as it works I see no reason why someone trying to reach more people wouldnโ€™t use it.

The reason Iโ€™m taking the time to write about this is that if it wasnโ€™t for some of these internet gurus I wouldnโ€™t have made any money online (for my clients or myself), and would have never had the opportunity to travel the world.

So Iโ€™m just against dismissing someone because they look like the โ€˜lambo internet marketing guyโ€™, some of these guys are helping way more people than the ones sitting on the sidelines and criticising them but doing nothing.
I would advise any friend to stay away from people boasting riches wether true or fake because your life is just gonna be a sad life, doing dodgy things to get a few lambos and then having to brag about them online forever just to keep the lifestyle ๐Ÿ˜
On a more serious note, I'm all for open mindedness but sometimes it makes you just sound selfish.

I think we all agree that's not ok to be deceptive and predatory "because it's marketing". Scamming thousands of people day-in-day-out to help a (very)few? When did that become a respectable, or even acceptable business model?
exactly, not all marketing is equal. Not all gain from marketing is equal either. Often times slow and steady is better than quick "marketing at any cost" type tactics.
I think a good book to read on this is "Built to last", it goes into the details far better than i can. But personally, i think people like that, who use wealth displays and create this fake facade are the worst to learn from. Its not a "them or nothing" situation, there are literally endless resources on marketing out there.
Morals aside, its just a question of how long term your vision is, if you're only concerned about the next 1-5 years then yeah emulating someone like that might be great, however beyond that people begin to clock on, and the facade begins to fall apart, except at that point you're left with nothing because you didnt put in the first 5 years of work which you needed to build a base from
I've been through Gadzhi's SMMA course, it's very good on another topic, self-development, but when it comes to agency and social media, everything was basic level, nothing good about getting clients, or getting results for clients, also in the first course he sells his second one which he claims to be more in-depth.

True thing is that he's good at inspiring, and he has in his team 3-4 guys that should be really good at ad buying for ecom and info, otherwise I don't know how he's doing it...

His lifestyle sometimes makes it impossible to believe that he still can hold even 10 clients at the same time and deliver results for them, so I assume his money comes from courses, the copy paste agency should be bringing in tens of thousands every month and sliding on new clients acquired through the hype created on youtube and IG
i think he's mostly just good at sales, when dealing with businesses or companies, truth is how good you are is usually irrelevant to whether or not you land clients, especially at this small a scale. S,ills and reputation don't kick in as limiting factor until a much larger scale.
Anyway i just think people should be very very cautious about whos advice to follow, and maybe he's a great marketer, but that doesn't change the fact that he is definitely full of sheet
Yeah maybe youโ€™re right, my point is more about dismissing and criticising every one of these guys like they all belong to the same group. For me thatโ€™s just a very narrow way of seeing things.
And I can second what Nick said about his course, itโ€™s very basic on these two areas, but still valuable as a introduction to the business.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet
Happiness is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it but only you can feel the warmth.
Hi anyone that has experience with B2B influencer marketing?
What do you guys think of clubhouse? Anyone using it
It seems like some next level up procrastination to me
a) Iโ€™m cynical
b) I am a truly advanced procrastinator
Not used it yet but looks quite interesting
Naval is a one-man hot take show
Not familiar with clubhouse but many of these new platforms take a growth approach of getting influencers and sales people to adopt it first, and hoping that users will follow.
His appearances on other channels seem rather elusive or somewhat rare.

On a side note- your name. I keep reading it as โ€œAston Martinโ€ scream_catjoy_cat
Have you come across anything similar?
Not off the top of my head sorry
Please feel free to message here if you remember or create one smiley_cat+1
A computer generated it for me so Iโ€™m pretty sure thereโ€™s no canonical pronunciation!
still chasing a Clubhouse invite ๐Ÿ˜‡
can one of you send me an invite?
iytpxjazhos or UUN2X0747?
if you get one invite me ๐Ÿ™ hahahha
Clubhouse reminds me of asmallworld, whole make it seem exlcusive thing, invite only, clique-y
marketting revolved around all the famous people on it and making you feel like you'd instantly become part of that circle, except instead of telling you tiger woods is a member, they tell you its some VC.
I knew asmallworld was shit when I had invites to distribute man-shruggingskin-tone-2
It was cool for a tiny window of time and then the lice came
I include myself in that latter category
But seriously, once some random finance bro can get access a platform is no longer in any way exclusive
lol yeah, well i was invited by a random finance bro, or gal, so was a few stages too late then ๐Ÿ˜‚
The problem is you can't 2x the speed man-facepalmingskin-tone-2
Yeah, time travel would be cool ๐Ÿ˜„
Clubhouse invites should also sign you up for 26 hour days. What are they thinkingโ€ฆ
Are there any marketing experts here? I need someone to consult me about the whole world of Landing Pages. I have a technical background. I can pay in precious THB for the consultation ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Great resource
Thank you. Yeah, I agree it's great. But this is just about landing page design. I need a more holistic approach right now. I have a service I wanna offer and I have a rough idea about my potential clients. So I need someone to help me with the specifics
Btw - asmallworld was actually fantastic at some point, been to many events and met great friends! But you must like it posh! ๐Ÿธ
Love Coffeezilla! It's so satisfying to finally seeing these people getting exposed.

Hey ๐Ÿ™‚ If you still need a consultation I'm happy to help. I create and analyze LPs for the company I currently work with.
Hey! Me! I don't think I can post links here but I'll try DMing you
Hey there, I watched this video IxKdPBDbdbY

It explains about testing a business idea in 5 minutes. And I wonder if there are some other marking stuff that would be fun to learn for a software dev. I'm not into marketing at all, but would look for some practical content that would review the whole process from idea to the revenue.
Are you going to turn your software idea into business?
I'd like to try!
Or, at least, make some returns. I have to make one of the app for my elderly grandmother (pill-taking and blood pressure measurement app). Now I need to make a decision:

1. If this is also needed by other people, then, I would need to focus on some user experience/ui and overall understandability.
2. If nooone needs it, then I need to finish it as soon as possible, prob, with no front end at all and all the data hardcoded into the source code.
#1 is more preferable, for sure.
What do you think about YCombinator library for your reference? Too broad?
to be honest, I have never tried. I mean, I literally have never tried any business and know almost nothing about YCombinator and how real it is. And what they expect as an input.

I'd probably read about such stuff first. I'll definetely read about YCombinator as well! ๐Ÿ™‚
Hey, I recently dipped my toes in webdesign or rather digital marketing, started with making a website for a local NGO, and also a childrens book author. Free of charge since Iโ€™m still learning. Now the website(s) launched and I was wondering if theres a (paid or free) course where I can now learn and apply marketing stuff to get the book authors site off the ground. It launched, has few visitors at the moment, I need to get the word out and market the content, ads etc. While I am able to logically think and I did do the google course a while back Iโ€™d really like to have some sort of guide where I can apply stuff to that specific website now. Not sure if that makes sense. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to go about that?
Like getting a website from 0 to 100 basically. There will be no online shop on the site itself, it links to amazon and the likes for shopping the actual books if that is somehow important ๐Ÿคท
I think a lot of that will be contextual depending on your overall strategy - Iโ€™m sure there are a lot of individual courses and free resources out there on email, content marketing, social, PPC etc. maybe start sound-boarding your priorities with communities like Demand Curve or GrowthMentor and then you can go into specific tactics
i.e. get feedback from people whoโ€™ve promoted books before / in the general childrenโ€™s education space and do one or two things really well vs spreading yourself across too many โ€˜digital marketingโ€™ channels. Iโ€™d think that SEO/link building and partnerships would be the highest ROI. Then again, I donโ€™t have children so Iโ€™m not sure how parents/family/friends go about searching for/purchasing books or activities for their kids ๐Ÿ™ƒ
Thats good advice, thank you
Moz for the winnn
It's a good start for beginners
Basically running an Amazon affiliate website then aorwtsjvix
