    I was wondering if it's actually possible to hire someone to teach you some tricks and perhaps spoonfeed you a bit. I once hired a poker teacher, it wasn't bad. He took a fixed fee and a percentage of my earnings. Is this possible or are people just going to rip you off?

    Here on BHW it's illegal. Generally speaking...I think chances are high that people will (try to) rip you off. A JV could help more.

    There are courses offered at websites like "Cloud Living" (Tung Tran), Authority Hacker (Gael Breton), etc, etc. They cost between $700 - $1000. More if you pay in installments or want coaching.

    You could always reach out to them and ask them what their "Per Hour" rate was.

    I also read a controversial thread not so long ago on BHW. Somebody was "mentored" by somebody or other and paid $$$$ for the knowledge. Then they opened a BST. Didn't end well if IRC...

    Don't waste your time with those courses. They are predominantly rehashed, fluffed up shit that you can learn just by reading forums such as BHW. If you look at the demographics of the audience they target on social (mainly freebie seekers) , it backs up what I'm saying. Listen to free podcasts and integrate yourself in communities building some trust/rapport with some old timers. Only then should you consider paying for mentor-ship.

    Illegal is a bit strong, but yea, it's not allowed here.

    There are people out there that offer SEO courses but they tend to be very expensive.

    Also, everything you can learn on those courses is available here on bhw for free if you just invest some time reading the content here and getting involved.

    If the coach knows ways to make money, he will keep to himself. Read here on forum and try things until you find success .

    It is possible, but you WILL get ripped off, that's for sure. That's because online marketing is not poker. Despite all the powerful tips and tricks you can learn on bluffing, understanding your opponents and their emotions, in poker, you are dealing with a deck of cards and mathematics (probability), which is exact science!

    There is no exact science in IM. I mean there is, because you are working with computers and algorithms, which in itself is maths as well and logic, but you don't have access to this kind of data. For example, you can only guess how to rank, you will never know the exact algorithm that actually ranks your sites. Same with anti-spam algorithms in social networks, anti-fraud rules in CPA networks or whatever site is paying you, etc... Unless you sell your own products where you get to make the rules, you will always be dependent on a third party to continue making money.

    In online marketing, you basically have 3 categories of people: the gurus who try to do what you need and rip you off 100% by teaching you outdated methods that never worked or never will or teach you things that are shared for free all over the Internet; people who make money and share valuable information from time to time and keep the best methods for themselves; and people who make money and never bother to participate in forums or share anything with others and of course they keep the best methods for themselves as well...

    As you can see, saturation is a big theme of this industry, hence why I told you that you will get ripped off because the only people that will agree to mentor you are gurus (category #1), the others won't because they make 100x more money than they would make from your commission if they told you their secrets.

    Learn the basics, get your foot in at an agency in a junior role and earn while you learn more.

    Be careful.

    Bought into consulting acelebrator by Sam ovens. $2k.
    Webinar and even e book looked great.

    After cc realized that it is YouTube videos and fb.

    Asked for refund then they start to insult you.
    Disputed with my cc company. Got refund.
    Learn thru bwh ! Stay away from coaching.
