  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: Do We Think Tai Lopez Is a Scammer?
  • [00:36] Because they are in the marketing world, Eric and Neil are often asked this question.

  • [01:40] Tai is a very forthright person with no need to put up a front.
  • [02:03] Instead of asking if someone is a scammer, try to learn from their techniques.
  • [02:25] You don’t have to be in their world, but take the stuff that works for these marketers and apply it to your business.
  • [02:37] Sam Evans is often considered a scammer, but he has over 3,000 positive video testimonials on his website.
  • [03:00] Everyone thinks these guys are scammers because there are a lot of affiliate marketer scammers. It is also because when people buy their products, the users don’t actually use the product.
  • [03:40] If you take free, effective material from your blog and put it behind a paywall, people will inevitably complain and claim your tactics don’t work. In the end, it will come out that they didn’t even apply the tactics to their businesses.
  • [04:45] Gossip doesn’t help you or anyone grow your business. It’s a waste of energy.
