MLM Scam Update: John Piro exposes Troy Dooly’s hidden agenda at MLM Help Desk. Now some of you may be wondering… If John exposed “Troy’s hidden agenda,” why is Troy writing about it?
Here is what John wrote in my comment section:(excerpt)
“Does anyone seriously believe the celebrity names mentioned in the TVI Express website would be supporting a Scam??? I loved reading Troy’s review on TVI. While Troy is positioning himself as an authority…right , wrong or indifferent…doesn’t anyone understand what Troy is doing? Troy is an extremely astute individual and is manipulating the internet to serve his own agenda… constantly making a name for himself by writing these articles capitalizing on the people who will viral spread this information and promote his name. Troy is playing everyone! Much of what Troy says is logical. But again …right , wrong or indifferent…the bottom line Troy is capitalizing on those that will forward this out for him and is getting you to opt in to his list and then selling you his (Troy Edited Out Of Original Comment) So what do you think about the validity of Troy’s analysis especially when he speak sof 3 Boards when there are only 2??????????? I think Troy needs to do his homework again. You Go Troy!!! There you go spreading false rumors. John Piro (Troy edited contact info out, see original comment)
At first, I was just going to post and not address his statements, because I see the numbers every day, and know most folks are not visiting the TVI Express post. However, the most I thought about it the more I realized his comment, was focused more on the Subscribers and Readers if MLM Help Desk, than me specifically.
But, just to make sure we are all on the same page I decided to write on the main points he addresses.
1. Does anyone seriously believe the celebrity names mentioned in the TVI Express website would be supporting a Scam???
Let’s forget for a second about what scam a celebrity might endorse, and just ask “do they endorse scams? The validated answer is yes!!!
And, then there is this FTC video on business opportunity scams, I posted just a few weeks ago, showing several top rated celebrities at the time who promoted hugely successful scams.
2. doesn’t anyone understand what Troy is doing? Troy is an extremely astute individual and is manipulating the internet to serve his own agenda… constantly making a name for himself by writing these articles capitalizing on the people who will viral spread this information and promote his name.
First let’s take a look at the first part of this accusation “doesn’t anyone understand what Troy is doing?” The way this statement is phrased, John seems to think he has some superior knowledge, that none of our other subscribers, readers or news letter subscribers have.
If we use the posts which bring in the most traffic we see, they also have the most comments and linkbacks to other sites. In both cases these folks are using what I wrote to promote their PERSONAL business not me personally.
MonaVie reps use the MonaVie posts, Traverus use the TraVerus posts, XanGo reps use the Sandi Cohen post, Yoli reps use the Yoli posts. All of the above posts promote a specific business and/or Leader.
Second point John brings up… “manipulating the internet to serve his own agenda” WOW! this is really funny, when you look at our rankings on this site compared to the real pros of MLM or even Internet Marketing. Although I have learned how to “Bend The Web” from Howie Schultz and Jack Humphrey.
John is right, one of our goals is to create a website where MLM distributors from every company can use it to propel their personal brand, validating what they are telling folks with 3rd party validation. Isn’t this what we are taught as distributors. It’s sure not a hidden agenda.
For my own agenda… No. TO help others whether I make money or not? YEP!!!
Thirdly John states “constantly making a name for himself” John had me laughing at this one. If a person reads by bio, they can see I have made a little name for myself, which is why folks ask me for advice. But, again, each post created here at MLM Help Desk, is created to promote legitimate MLM companies, or to raise warning flags to potential MLM Scams.
Are their folks who like what I write and contact me personally? Yep! And there are those who hate what I write and contact me personally.
Social Marketing, Internet Marketing, Blogging, Web 2.0 or anything else we want to call it, is all about providing something of value to others.
When you provide value, people want to be part of the Tribe (Seth Godin), when you are all about #1, and promoting yourself, like so many self proclaimed gurus we see these days, then people run.
A great book on this very subject is Socialnomics, by Erik Qualman.
Yes, I am proud of the years I have put into learning how to use the Internet to benefit my friends and family. Almost as proud as I am of the great profession of MLM.
However, I also understand most folks will never put in the time I have or be able to invest the money I have to bend the ear of some of the greatest marketers in history.Most will never have personal mentors who will guide them every step of the way.
It is because I do understand the time limitations we all have, that I am willing to create a community where people can piggyback on what we create to help validate this great profession and in some cases individual companies and leaders.
Here is a great video on Social Marketing. The power is great for those who understand how to use it.
However, I know I still make mistakes, and I am willing to listen to the folks who read and subscribe to our blog. If after watching these videos and reading this post you believe John Piro is right… I have a hidden agenda to promote myself over the welfare of those who are part of this Tribe, then make it clear by commenting below.
If you believe what I have stated all along then please make those comments also.
In closing here is the first video we shot on January 5th of this year… You be the judge as to where our hearts are focused.
