    All of these self proclaimed "Guru's" make me want to put my fist through the computer...

    I saw someone here on BHW asking for a product...so as I had my morning coffee this morning I checked out the program...

    For a mere $10 they will show how they are making $20,000 a month with this simple trick...

    BULLSHIT!

    So, you mean to tell me this person is going to sell this magic book for $10 and deal with questions and orders - he would need to sell 2,000 of these each month to duplicate the income claimed.

    Yet, I wonder how many of these he sold....

    Oh, and then when you look up his domain and research the address you get a crappy house that Zillow claims is worth about $70,000 lol

    Sorry for the rant, but if this post prevents just one person for falling for this type of crap it will be worth the 10 seconds it took me to rant haha

    Save your $10...want to make money? Be prepared to work harder than anyone else. Get up earlier and stay awake later than the others. Make sacrifices and don't be afraid to fail...

    A $10 Bullshit eBook from a "Guru" that is making money by ripping off hopeful Internet Marketers is not the way to do it...

    They are not gurus, they are simply turds who took a wrong turn on the way to the Warrior forum.

    I never took them seriously, and never understood why some people bother to remember their names. IMHO a waste of brain cells.

    just sit if you can't stand ;)

    Anyways , never buy such stuff because a real person making such money would never invest time to write a ebook worth $10

    its a rant.. and that's what it should be. Because no matter what, such turds always exist.. why? Because there are bigger idiots who fall for it. I'd rather side with these 'turds' because they're able to make some money selling to a certain 'niche' of people (ethical or not.. that's a different story).. and unfortunately, I think these kind of tactics yield better conversions than say selling a $5k course.

    Most Ebooks on how to make a ton of money is bullsh1t. Why would anyone tell you how you make 5000 USD a month for ie. 5-20 USD....... Like if you know how to tell another person how to earn 5000 USD a month, why would you sell that method and not just duplicate it yourself.. I agree with you netmoney.... Its bullsh1t, like 99% of all ebooks you can buy on warriorforum.

    So that "Make Thousands over night with a click of a button" $150 WSO I bought from Warrior Forum isn't going to make me rich? ;)

    Newbs getting taken advantage of by 'gurus' is a rite of passage. I firmly believe it actually thins the herd for the better.

    you always have to ask if someone makes easy 20.000 a month why he should sell a ebook for 10 where he is offering this method.

    dont even have a look at this crap and use your brain ;)

    This is a selling techniqe like any other.
    In 2009 when I first got into IM I accidentally found a video on YT where this guy was promoting GDI (global domains international) and had a training website where he was teaching the members
    to buy the product from their own affiliate link a few times and when they receive the check in the mail to make videos by recording themselves showing their earnings and act like gurus. This is how he gained his followers and now he was teaching the same tactic to them.
    He was saying something like, if you're not going to stand out and make a name for yourself noone is going to do it for you.

    People who have some common sense will know that nobody will ever sell a $10000/month method for $10 unless it's already saturated but there will always be beginners to fall for it.

    Like I said, it's not that they are really thinking of themselves as gurus, it's just another selling technique.

    I have a friend who is all into WF, and I'm trying to tell her, that as an experienced IM'er, she should stay away from that bullshit circle jerk.
    She doesn't listen and buys ebooks that will get her rich, which I think proves that these 'gurus' will be around for awhile

    That is unless, we choose to negrep their threads here and disprove their BS. Maybe someone searching that product would find the truth here.

    I sent 2 emails to this self proclaimed guru from 2 different email addresses:

    1. Calling him a piece of shit and attaching pictures of his shitty house
    2. Saying that I had $10,000 available for private coaching

    Guess what one was replied to.....

    HAHAHAHA

    There 's a reason those ebooks sell, they cater for a specific market (apart from the newcomers) - those who want money without putting the work.
