Someone (not naming any names) pitched me and tried selling me a social media marketing program today. If you know me a little, I don’t like being pitched straight away by randoms adding me on LinkedIn. I like connecting with others and being of value to one another, especially online. That’s what the new networking is all about, in my humble opinion.
Again, I know better but to name any names. It’s not about that. But just out of curiosity, after reading his cleverly written sales page promising me the golden-mountain-of-overnight-business-success, here’s what I found in tiny fine print at the bottom:
Any sales figures referenced are my personal sales figures, or those of our most exceptional clients. Please understand my results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of practicing online marketing for 7+ years, and have an established following as a result. The average person who buys any online marketing information gets little to no results. I’m using these references for example purposes only. Your results will vary and depend on many factors … including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic. All business entails risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action. If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT attempt to work with us.
While he certainly has a point, the line “The average person who buys any online marketing information gets little to no results.” rubbed me the wrong way. If you teach someone, shouldn’t you have a system that gives results when implemented? This guy seems to bank more so on your luck than his experience of being able to transfer any knowledge to his client. Disappointing. Then again, anyone promising overnight results is probably someone you should stay away from in the first place (without even bothering reading any fine print). Just saying.
Having seen too many marketing “gurus” like this over-promise and under-deliver is what made me decide to create my own organic growth hacking program. And because I stand behind my content and anything I share, it comes with a simple but powerful success promise to you. It’s all about sharing stories and creating value. Not about wasting money on stuff that doesn’t work.

My Fine Print And Promise To You
You can read my full detailed promise here, but it boils down to a few honest points. My programs, bundles, and courses deliver real-world advice. All our unique content is created in-house and presented by our own instructor (aka, me). Each course is created as a multimedia learning experience and contains on-demand videos, and a mixture of worksheets, guides, blog posts, webinars and more. And all of it is designed to deliver you an unparalleled educational experience.
Someone has already accomplished what you’re trying to do next. No need to reinvent the wheel. I’ll literally show you how I’ve done it myself – step by step. I guarantee you a solid education on how to successfully achieve your goals, as well as how to apply what you learn in your life and business. My material is based on proven systems and strategies used by me myself, and my students and clients around the world.
I’m confident that if you’re willing to do the work and implement what you learn, you WILL get results. If you have watched all my training videos, read every lecture, have done all assignments, but somehow don’t think this will work for you, simply let me know why and I’ll cancel your enrolment. There are no minimum commitments here and you can also cancel your program or bundle anytime from your student dashboard.Read more
