The Guru Hoax

You Might Not Want to Read This

This isn’t some lead generation one sheet or faux paperback PDF designed to bait and switch you into joining a mailing list.

It’s a full-fledged 272-page published exposé revealing how marketing and branding wannabe experts are learning from their mistakes at your expense.

The Guru Hoax: How Business Owners Get Hoodwinked Into Paying for Ineffective Advertising” may disturb you – especially if you’ve previously fallen for some of their fake-it-to-make-it cons.

I will show you:

  • The techniques they use to try to present themselves as a “thought leader” in your eyes
  • How they’ll borrow someone else’s celebrity status to invent credibility for themselves
  • The 7 Svengali tricks they use to build their image as an authority
  • The truth about the line “Our techniques have been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox, CNN, MSNBC”
  • How they use b.s. bait – such as a “profit growth calculator” – to lure you on their hook
  • The ulterior motive they have when hawking their high-priced, multi-day seminar (or even the free one they’re trying to persuade you to attend)
  • What quack doctors, phony faith healers, and Ponzi scheme grifters have in common with freelancers, advertising agencies, and brand specialists
  • Why they want you to think their niche is so special
  • How they turn a free consultation into a sales pitch
  • Why they tell you a story when you ask a question, instead of just giving you a straight answer (and how their story is fabricated from whole cloth)
  • Where they are getting their templates – and how you can get them for yourself
  • Why they want you to believe there is a reason – a passion –that drives them to want your business; something other than just wanting your money
  • What they are trying to hide with all of their social proof
  • How advertising agencies fudge their experience, size, staff, niche, workload, locations, expertise, and awards

And a lot more that you may — or may not — want to know.
