Some interesting goings on this last week, with new batch of “cool aid” – as those across the pond say – being sold to daft newbies who either seem to NOT be learning as they are going along or new noobs who are just getting sucked in.

This blogging A-list crowd is getting worse!

I knew it as soon as I saw it in my inbox with the lame pitch and tweeted that it was a joke, before seeing the interesting few post from people who know what they are talking about, who slam the cool aid floggers!

I would never say I know it all and there are plenty of people who know more than me on all this stuff, blogging and internet marketing wise, but even so, if I can spot this crap a mile off I am bemused and saddened many can’t and to that end I am glad people are starting to stand up and say “hang on, this is bullshit”…. not that I’ve ever shied away from doing that :o)

Let’s face it, those who are falling for this crap who already read the supposed A-listers blogs and other crap they write are either not getting it or they are pure fanboys, no other way to describe it, how can there be if they still don’t twig that what they learn? read on the blogs is useless and just going to be reworded for the “tribe” crap or forum or whatever.

Call me stupid, but this crap “join us and we’ll be friends, that will make you money, just cos you are “in” with us” ideal is obviously a bit lame, is that what they call a business plan?

Join us, we will make you a cool blogger?! Lame!

Look, I don’t dislike Darren, Chris, Brian, Simone… they are all great writers, I just think this third tribe thing is BULLSHIT.

I know some say, you are cynical bugger Rob…thing is I just don’t like seeing people getting ripped off!

Being charged to have your hand held and then misled along the way… no thanks.

So much is obvious on the blogs alone.

Darren doesn’t do SEO in his words, well I can see that, you can’t even anchor link in a way to benefit those (misguided) guest posters, check if you unsure… no doubt due to some of them being wanna-be-famous-like-you guest posters, they don’t mind being linked using their names.

Ah well, Darren’s take on this third tribe thing, useless nonsense.

Reading one of the best rants about this whole situation, I doubt the writer Grizz would like a useless link, maybe as he knows what he is talking about when it comes to the make money online situation he would prefer this! :o)

Andy Beard also, I have known Andy for years online, read his stuff alot, he shares alot on SEO tips .. maybe Darren and the other cool aid sellers should read his stuff too!

So, these people wanna charge $47 a month!

To hold your hand and tell you “you are cool cos you are with us” all the while reading their rehashed crap and fawning over them.

Just my opinion and I am entitled to it, keep ya money, use it on something else or buy ya loved one something, hold their hand instead!

When they start showing they know what the hell they are talking about, then maybe we start to listen to them, till then… steer clear is my advice, go read Grizz’s blog if you want the real nuts and bolts on how it all works.

Third Tribe, more useless crap!

    Nothing wrong with that link Rob. Merci. Nothing wrong with your post either – let's see if we can send a little traffic your way. Much appreciated.

    Hey Grizz,

    Thanks for coming by and that nice traffic offer. :o)

    Thanks for posting a very enlightening rant, one that should send a few shivers down the spines of these misleaders.

    This crap has to stop being touted as a good thing to do, it;s not, it's selling the very dream they slam IM'rs for, hypocrites.

    Crazy stuff!

    Thanks Grizz, (and humbly I think you ought to hurry up with the 10k post) ;o)

    10k of sense over 300 words of nonsense any day of the week.

    How do you know its not 10k of nonsense as well… lol.

  • February 5, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    Ha ha… well,

    Because even if alot of your post are nonsense, there are nuggets within that nonsense… it's up to us to take the nuggets of sense from that nonsense. ;o)

    Hidden in plain sight is a better way putting it.
    And though my ears are shit…damn my eyes are good! :o)

    One man's junk, another's gold.

    None of it is nonsense to me though.

    I have to say that you are pretty spot on with many newbie or seasoned by bitter by not making a fortune in their first 5 minutes online are likely to fall for a membership site that infers something great because you are 'inside'.

    Let's see if they really are different to Wealthy Affiliate University and the 'others'.

    Thanks Somone for the comment and popping by.

    NO-ONE will EVER make any fortune in five minutes, whatever anyone tells you, that much IS bullshit.

    Pretty sick of seeing people selling dreams, because they always turn into nightmares.

    The problem is alot of these scammers have no shame.

  • February 9, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    You are spot on – sad to see people falling for this nonsense. just because you are paying $$ to be closer to these supposed A-listers, does not mean they will be your 'friends' or offer something valuable. They are probably laughing all the way to the bank.

  • February 9, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    Hey Ksenia,

    I am very very inclined to say your last sentence sums it up… :o)

    Yep, laughing their socks off… until all these post like mine here get seen, people need to wake up and stop bring so stupid, chasing dreams and kissing ass.

    They are banking on people being stupid, so far they found over 2000 of them!

    Rob, I’ve spent the last two weeks reading every word Griz’s blog and I wanted to come over and say hi. I’ll be back. Thanks for a great read, and let me know if I can ever help you with anything.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of the money-making gang, I just blog because I love it, but I really, really get a kick out of your writing. (I’m also one of those misguided guest posters, but like I said, not really playing for stakes:)

    Keep doing what you do, homie.

      Why are you wasting your money then? you are just paying them every month for nothing… if you don’t mind throwing away money every month, there is a beer icon on the sidebar here 😉 >>>>>>

      Seriously, cancel that payment if you re not getting anything from it, you fell for their patter… how many thousand of people are giving these idiots money for nothing?

    You’re absolutely right. Why would somebody waste his money without getting any benefit from it? I’ve attended webinar, I read sales page, I also saw some other stuffs around the internet but most of these are just useless. They keep on bragging their earnings, blah, blah, blah… But they intentionally eliminate those stories behind these things. They are too biased, they don’t even want to cite both pros and cons. I knew a person too that sells something that he haven’t proven to work.
