I was just reading a blog post from Jim Kukral, “Our Love/Hate Relationship with Gurus,” and it got me thinking about the gurus of Internet marketing.
Jim points out in his post that the definition of a guru is a positive one, so why don’t people like them?
I think it’s probably that the scam stories are so common. Just recently, there was a news story about “guru” Matt Harward.
According to the channel 3 news in Phoenix, AZ, “roughly 300 people worldwide signed up for about a $1,000 each” to learn Internet marketing secrets from Harward, and he didn’t deliver.
