Last month I asked a couple of questions about Internet MLM Guru’s; like for instance, do they do what they preach?
I haven’t spent any money on these gurus yet, But I did visit a few websites and signed up for their free email newsletters.
Most of these websites offer a continuing series of emails that arrive almost daily, sometimes twice daily, touting not only the guru’s current e-course, but also the latest, greatest new course that they are working on.
Interspersed in the copy of the emails are short ads for the current course or a link to an affiliate associate’s course on a related topic.
But, if you wade through all that, you can pick up a few tidbits of actual advice and, on most days, a bit of motivation.
Currently, I have enrolled in 4 email newsletters.
The first two deal with a comedy stand-up business course and another entertainer course.
But the next two deal with Multi-level Marketing.
The first is from Daegan Smith, owner of the Internet MLM Success site. Mr. Smith appears to have had some experience with MLM, and frankly, I like what he says in most of his articles. Daegan also has among his website corral, a blog called the
I’m enjoying his emails, but still haven’t decided to plunk down any money. (most of these courses are available for $97.00…this price seems to be the Internet equivalent of those $19.95 TV offers…almost all the course are $97 or $197 in price.)
The second guru is a recent find of mine, thanks to one of those comedy emails I’m receiving. This guru is all about list-building…address list building.
The reason that the comedy email recommended Tellman Knudson was his video promo on listbuilding that Knudson uploaded to YouTube. Think of it as an internet 2-minute infomercial.
Tellman wants to teach people how to “eat Frito’s, drink Pepsi, and play video games” AND “make money.” I prefer Dr. Pepper, but I love Frito’s.
Again, I’m enjoying the emails, but I can’t seem to turn loose any cash to these guys yet.
Maybe, I’m being too skeptical but I’m going to consider some of these e-courses as I read their daily emails and I may sign up for a few more of these absolutely-free- with-no-obligation-email-newsletters up until year’s end.
I’ll let you know if I “too can become an Internet guru and make ton’s of money”
As always, I welcome comments on Guru’s you use, Guru news, and new Guru’s.
