He's no better than your average Internet BRO-marketer, you're giving him higher ratings just because your perceived status as an authority figure.the guy is not really an entrepreneur but a master psychologist
the point is not to be an entrepreneur but a guy who makes people do things
whether it be to buy something from you or give you something as a gift
you can put this guy in any society or back in time in cave or anything
the guy will always weasel his way out to have the good life
this is more valuable than any business skills
the guy can do anything : entrepreneur, cult leader, politician, and so on
this is true intelligence.
I dunno, he was rich before all this YouTube stuff. Here he is in 2007/2008 on a millionaire dating show called "The Millionaire Matchmaker":He's no better than your average Internet BRO-marketer, you're giving him higher ratings just because your perceived status as an authority figure.
I don't understand why there are so many people impressed with him, even Tai admitted in an interview that he just got lucky after releasing the YouTube video.
Seriously, any of his "students" can take the money they're paying and make a video campaign just like him and make more money than they'll get using his techniques, which are the same sh!t every IM scammer sells.
Just because dumb people felt into the scam doesn't make Tai a freaking genius neither an entrepeneur.
If you want real IM masterminds you have blackhatters and you know what? they don't share their best secrets because they're worth more than selling them to the marketplace like the rest of BRO-marketers do.
IMs like Tai sell classic IM fundamentals and anything "advanced" is stuff that blackhatters already stopped using because it already stopped working.
I said it before, if you want to be the new Tai Lopez:
-Create a 100 pages PDF with the same IM crap it's been online forever.
-Create a website giving the PDF for free in exchange for an email.
-Rent a sports car, have some hot ladies with you and make a video with them in the background while talking about any entrepeneurial cliché (persistance, determination, focus, discipline, hard work, vision, customer care, etc.)
-Blast a paid video campaign all over the Internets. And don't forget a call to action at the end!
-Recolect the emails and prepare some BS upsell to make a gazillion bucks.
-With your first gazillion now you can buy FOR REALZ the car and a good house.
-Now with real success you can repeat the process selling more useless crap motivated by the illusion that your "students" can become rich too.
This is the problem, aspiring entrepeneurs read this and say "it can't be this easy, there has to be a secret silver bullet that Tai teaches in his 997$/month Ultra Diamond Mega Special Insider program, he's a genius just look at his car and those babes!".
But the truth is, it is this easy, what I wrote is exactly what he did and he got the money to make the first steps from a scammy dating site with fake women profiles.
Do you remember Kim DotCom? He created Megaupload now renamed to Mega. He's a highly intelligent highly skilled hacker and a highly successful entrepeneur.
When he was starting out, to fake success and gain status he would shoot photos in front of many different luxuries (sports cars, jets, yachts, helicopters...) When people looked at them thought "wow he's so rich!".
Now is common knowledge that the majority of those photos are faked. Yes, it was him in front of that stuff but it wasn't his xDDDD
People assume things because they don't pay attention and our cognitive biases fool us.
The difference is that Kim being a high profile hacker makes him very skilled in technical matters which helped him make Mega(upload) a reality. A real business offering real services to real people.
IMs are the digital equivalent of those guys selling weightloss pills.
If someone is paying him in exchange for any product or service (online courses in his specific case) he has a real business. It doesn't really matter if the product really works or how much it works.
It is that simple.
*) you guys are probably right about him : maybe he is just a scam wizard with no real content
anyway, what i have just understood minutes ago : his youtube channel went from 750 000 followwers to 817 000 followers in one month
+ 67 000 people in one month !!
so instead of just exposing the guy, let's understand what is going on. because there is a valuable lesson for us.
i am using Jay Abraham's method to find valuable lessons : reframing the thing by looking at the big picture
this is called " get altitude" by eben pagan
* ) instead of just exposing the guy, i want to profit from the lesson
so only a magnetic personnality can explain + 67 000 people in 30 days
it reminds me of a buddy at school. i am a reserved guy but this guy managed to attract me and a lot of people in his circle of friends
this just happened while i am a reserved guy and didn't have many friends at school
i call this : the magnetic personnality.
this buddy was stupid, careless, not interesting at all but i couldn't help myself to be around him like a butterfly with a light
do you understand what i am saying ? this is the key
so the key :
my school buddy, Tai Lopez : these guy are not talking like nervous CEO in front of the camera.
they are talking like they are your friend and since there is nothing to resist, you don't resist
people don't want to do business with boring salesmen but with friends
when you watch a tai lopez video, you are not watching a nervous guy trying to sell you something
you are watching a buddy talking to you in a relaxed way at the bar
and you have nothing to resist
this is the key.
Listening to your new book and I'm pretty sure it was this thread you were talking about when you said a thread about a Guru has made you at least 25k. It made me smile!And there ya go folks. This is how you sell books.
I never met you.
I never sold you.
I never put an ad in front of your face.
I never spent a dime to convince you.
Content was created and you found the content.
The surrounding content convinced you of value.
Value convinced you to buy.
I added one book sale to the growing number.
None of the above is easy. Of course if it was, we'd all be authors who could claim selling $1M+ in books.
Product. Platform. Process.
Welcome aboard @Jambla.
There is no shortcut.Unfollowing this "hustling phones on eBay" group again...
but I’d definitely study how he does what he does if I wanted to sell info products to his market.
I read a bit on Belfort's straight line technique.yes . you should study kevin Trudeau and Jordan Belfort materials as well.
By the way, both guys are considered to be con artist by society.
but the point is that they are able to make people do things, like cult leader managing their followers
methods are neutral : you can do good or bad things with them.
in my opinion, Lopez, Belfort and Trudeau are geniuses.
they know how to achieve what they want .
I read a bit on Belfort's straight line technique.
Actually workable, if you use the system to sell actual, valuable products.
But Kevin Trudeau? Why does he make the list?
He hasn't been around very long, and all I ever hear of him are comments on how sleek and well-built he is. (I haven't been very up-to-date on the international news these days)
Uh huh...2) ok here's the real reason that i didn't mention above
he makes the list because he is an initiate.
he was put in jail because he talked too much about occult wisdom in his teachings : your wish is your command and so on
moreover, he is telling too much truth is his books : natural cures, debt cures and so on
and the elite couldn't let him leak too much knowlege about the matrix because this is dangerous for their power over the masses
the masses are not supposed to be exposed to occult teachings.
Trudeau used this knowledge to make money
while this knowledge must have remained occult so the elite stopped him
you may say " but why keep this knowledge hidden ?
here is a hint :
View attachment 17845
hundreds of guys like him are silenced in a way or another in our society
truth seekers, doctors, sicentists, former freemasons who talked too much and so on and so on
the list is endless
ok it's 2 years later now. has he helped an old buddy get wealthy?The bio posted earlier is mostly accurate but Tai lives in the Hollywood hills, not Beverly Hills, and didn't even own a car until recently buying the Lambo. It appears he only bought the Lambo to pull views to his Youtube videos since that's what a lot of the younger crowd notice and respond to. Regardless of the minutia, he's obviously a very wealthy and successful guy.
And I'll add this: I went to junior high (aka "middle") school with Tai and we were friends in the seventh and eighth grades. If I were an aspiring entrepreneur I would pay some serious attention to what he has to say because to be where he is now from where he came from is pretty damn miraculous. Poor family. No father in his life. Zero advantages. He's definitely a smart guy but just like everybody else he started from nothing. He's now trying to impart what he's learned over the last 20 years in life and business that took him from broke to doing very well to anyone that will listen, mostly for free. I'm listening. I've narrowed down the list of people I gather information from to a very select few and he's one of them.
ok it's 2 years later now. has he helped an old buddy get wealthy?
And people doing that research find this thread and TFLF gets the folks with a brain. Win-win really.How does the saying go? Even bad press is good press. Someone poses the question who is this guy? Everyone goes out and researches to find out so they can argue about it. Now the guy probably has a dozen more followers/customers simply from somone posing the question.
Pretty slick strategy if you ask me.
