    I was curious, what does everybody here on BHW think of Tai Lopez? For anybody that doesn't know, that's the "here in my garage.." guy on YouTube with the Lamborghini and the bookshelves.

    At first, he seemed just like any other online guru looking to build 'false authority' in the marketplace, however on closer inspection he does actually appear extremely knowledgable when it comes to business and investing. I'd love to know everybody's own personal opinion on him - thanks! :)

    Very conflicted. I don't like his style,content or personality. But he's obviously good at self-promotion just like every other self-help guru. Ultimately, it's worth remembering that IM "gurus" are no different from lifestyle gurus or relationship gurus - their success depends on marketing themselves, their product or expertise comes a distant second.

    For me, I'm more interested in the guys who don't need to stand in their garage, filming their books and car to get you to buy their product. If something's so valuable, why do you want to give it to other people and why do you feel you have to convince them?

    When you say you don't like his content are you talking about 67 steps or just his marketing tactica + What about it don't you like?

    Only thing I like about Tai is his copy. From a copy standpoint, that ad in his garage was brilliant. Yes he dropped a wealth anchor (which is mandatory in that field imo) but he spoke in such a natural, "authentic", convicted way ... it was the oil that let him insert his inflated internet peni up everyones ass.

    Alex Becker, I never click through any of his ads on youtube. But Tai got me with that garage ad. I simply saw value in his positioning and wanted to see how he was positioning the rest of his funnel. Then I get to his YT videos and they were really sloppy. The guy just aimlessly rants about books and abstract ideas. He has no clear message. It's all fluff.

    But I still checked out his website & it's clear what he's doing. He's branding his own bullshit version of "The Secret". Compiling all these abstract ideas into his own series of useless self help bullshit.

    Not to say I dislike him. He's using all the principals of BHs "fake your way to riches" pretty effectively.

    And there are always lessons to be learned. Like how people will never stop falling for this type of shit. How powerful perception and positioning are and how ultimately meaningless your message is. Simply act like you really believe all this bullshit, like you are a certain type of person..... and other people will turn you into that person.

    I suppose in a way I actually like the guy. I love being reminded how dumb most people really are.

    That ad was country targeted. If you're outside of the US and Canada that's probably the reason you've never seen it. It would play before every single YouTube video you would watch for like 6 months straight and was the most annoying shit ever.

    The video:

    Anyone who has to make a youtube video letting everyone know he's a guru is just a wanker.

    He is a scammer and con artist.

    He started out as a dating site owner- billing people even though when they didn't want to get billed.

    Then he started this whole self help finance shit, getting help from one guy in the dating / pick up artistry scene - got his base traffic from there.

    And then started his massive youtube ads campaign where he btw promotes his stuff AND still does his nasty billing scams to a certain extent.

    He is just name dropping all the time and using weird abstract concecpts that does not help you but makes you FEEL that he has helped you, creating a knowledge addiction loop that keeps you comming back, thinking "i might have missed one concepct that I need to become rich"

    Total BS, stay away from him and if possible, spread the info that I posted here + do your own due diligence to find out what he is doing (scam artist)


    BTW: Does anyone know how much he might have paid for his massive YT ads campaign?

    You can package and re-package "personality ethic" 100 ways from Sunday, but when it's all said and done the real "secret" is that people love to buy bullshit, and the more bullshit it seems the more they want to buy it. Snake-oil salesperson just like anyone selling "information."

    Re-train your brain to simply shut this crap off when the obvious selling starts ... which is when the videos start. If you ever feel like someone is trying to sell you something - they are. When you NEED something nobody has to sell it to you - you simply recognize your need and go buy it.

    I like the guy though as well as I like any of the iterations who have come before him. As a professional copywriter these types taught me everything I know.

    Due to your lack activity in this forum and great writing style I'm assuming you are in fact Tai Lopez. You are looking for feedback and using BHW authority to promote yourself on Google search.

    The title of this thread is perfect for SEO purposes. Why are you saying there's value in his programs but also asking for opinions here?

    Sorry pals but Tai is here.
