Lot of people out there claiming to be marketing wizards and selling courses or other scams, who should we definitely stay away from?

There are a lot of top notch courses out there that are either free or extremely cheap, I think if someone is selling you a course for hundreds or even thousands of dollars then you're probably getting a bit scammed

Tai Lopez, but that one is pretty known at this point

Grant Cardone is pretty slimy, one of my friends let me check out one of his courses and it legit has no substance or any practical advice that you can't get somewhere else

You can spot the snake oil salesmen because they often try to sell you the "idea" of wealth and give you advice about "mindset" to lure you into their sales funnels. Learning is free, don't give money to these lowlifes

I hate giving more attention to scammers like this by even mentioning them but there is Dan Lok and Wesley Virgin

It's usually a pretty safe bet to just stay away from personalities trying to get them to buy into their program. If they actually provided anything useful, their knowledge and expertise would be the subject of their marketing not how much money they have or how lavish their lifestyles are

If they are selling a lifestyle, run as far and fast as your can. If they are selling skills, make sure they have the record to back it up.

Hi everyone! I need your help here. A quick background:

Junior copywriter based in Toronto here. Came to Canada about a year ago and did an internship at Klick Health.

Once it ended in late August, they didn't take on ANY intern full time. Been job searching for the past 3 months. Would really appreciate any leads/insight on some entry level gig or internship that might be available in this city. I know it's year end and it's hard, but I am still hopeful as I have seen people still get hired.


I’m starting to think there is a very dark side to marketing. My whole job is basically manipulating people into spending money, often money they can’t afford. I’m really starting to question my career.
