Social Media Training from Someone That Has Over 150+ Million Views on YouTube or…

Social Media Training

Would you rather learn social media from a website you never heard of until you searched Google, a college that is for the most part not marketing their school in the year we live in, or…

From Someone…

  • Has over 150+ Million Views on YouTube
  • Over 450k Followers on Twitter with lots of engagement
  • Over 1.5 Million likes and fans on Facebook
  • Over 1.7 Million Followers on Instagram
  • Other proven experts teaching social media and offering social media training marketing courses online with videos and a private mastermind Social Media Facebook Group…

That someone also does 150 snaps a day and was coined the #1 Social Media strategists to watch with all the attention they get on social media above #2 Gary Vaynerchuk per Entreprenuer.com…

That someone is none other than Millionaire Tai Lopez and he has opened a Social Media Marketing Agency Program that keeps getting a ton of positive reviews and testimonials of people making 20x ROI back from their investment in his social media marketing course.

We listed all the pros and cons of the course in a Tai Lopez SMMA review here you can read. And now here are the Pros and cons of going through online social media training like Tai’s course vs. a school or a company you never heard of before.

Pros of Tai’s social media training vs. Colleges/other sites you never heard of before

  • Real life experience and results not just theory
  • Proven ROI and testimonials
  • Proven attention, Tai’s social media presence vs. other social media training courses you might be considering (doubt they stack up)
  • Money back guarantee
  • Private FaceBook group for after course support
  • Only 4 months on average but no one is stopping you from going through the course online faster or at a slower pace
  • Other social media experts teach proven social media strategies
  • Strategies about social media in 2017 and real time in the world we live in not from a year, 2, 3, 5 years ago
  • Certification
  • Online vs. in a boring college class
  • From someone with a huge social media presence vs. a professor that just started a Twitter account
  • Investment is a lot less then most courses and college university programs
  • Networking online with people from the course

Cons of Tai’s social media training course vs. College

  • Networking in person (if college class)
  • Only opens up for certain periods of time.. Check if it’s open here. (if so jump on it before he closes it)
  • Usually opens it up once a quarter

social media training

If someone is going to train you on anything you should always reverse engineer that person or company to make sure they practice what they preach and have proven time and time again that what they are teaching you they learned, used, and executed on.

Also, consider when you are choosing a social media training program that investment with a program like Tai Lopez’s social media training is minimial to most colleges, univeristies and other programs. It’s usually in the $697-$997 range but you can check current pricing here.

And with social media training you can land a job in the social media space, start your own social media agency, or use it to build a personal brand. So social media training is really priceless especially in this ever-changing and trending digital marketing world and it’s only going to continue from 2017 until 2027 when AR/VR or robots take over.

Why You Should Join Tai Lopez Social Media Marketing Agency Course Program

If you need to be caught up on Tai Lopez, his net worth, whether he is a scam (we think he’s not), or basically learn about Tai Lopez via Wikipedia style check this post first.

However, if you already know Tai Lopez kills it on social media getting people’s attention with Facebook, YouTube (YouTube ads), Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter and wondering whether you should invest in Tai Lopez’s social media marketing agency program or not maybe this post can help you.

We really drill down on the pros and cons and why you should just man up, woman up, and invest the money since this social media space is exploding and if you hesitate you already lost.

Pros of Joining Tai Lopez Social Media agency program

  • Small investment to learn from the best that according to Entrepreneur.com is the #1 person to watch in the social media space above #2 Gary Vaynerchuk
  • He has a money back guarantee (no one does this)
  • It’s not just his advice it’s proven social media agency owners, growth hackers, and experts that share their knaawwwwledge as well
  • Social media space is a billion dollar industry and small business don’t want to but need to have a presence and rather pay people for it
  • You can use the skills to help you get a social media job if you don’t want to start a social media agency
  • You can use the skills to increase your personal brand equity or teach you how to use social media for yourself….
  • He is always adding to his programs vs one and done.
  • There is a Facebook group where the people who pay for the program support each other and answer questions ect..
  • Better than going to college unless you want to be a lawyer, doctor, accountant or something specialized that really needs college leanings to be successful
  • You can learn how online programs work and create your own and sell your own eventually, just going through the process and set up can show you how to do it
  • If you take the course you will be able to determine at the end the value vs sitting on the sidelines wondering or believing haters and trolls

Cons of Joining Tai Lopez Social Media Agency Program

  • Tai Lopez usually has a social media test group so when you miss his snaps or Instagram updates to join you have to wait until he opens it up again
  • You are out what $697-$997 and didn’t apply anything taught and learned because it’s something that doesn’t interest you
  • You don’t have the sales skills to get clients to apply what you learn or find out it’s hard for you because you suck at managing your own business and rather have a job
  • You end up hating social media in general and realize like anything in life it still takes hard work and social media doesn’t work unless you work it

Notice most of the cons really come down to you. And in life whether you pay for college, an online program, get money from a 9 to 5, it’s always up to you whether you keep learning, moving up the ladder of your own idea of happiness or success.

Still need more convincing? or don’t and ready to join?

How about these YouTube videos from students?

 

If these videos and our pros and cons still don’t convince you one last thing you can do is check out all the social media agency and social media job listings on our site and see how many people are hiring and in need of social media experts and lastly check out Tai Lopez actually social media stats, following, and snaps where he shares even more screenshots from people DMing him results and testimonials and their success from the social media agency program. 

If that still doesn’t convince you, good luck at whatever you think will actually make you start executing on something you are passionate about and stop reading these posts with no action.

How to SEE What Gary Vaynerchuk and Sequoia Capital is Investing in Using Crunchbase

One Social Media hack to see what the best Apps are currently or new ones that are up and coming before mainstream really pays attention to them is going to the App store and looking at the Top FREE apps list and going down the Top 100 apps by one on a daily/weekly basis. If you do it often enough you notice what’s popping and what’s falling or losing momentum.

As an example, Boomerang from Instagram was popping and now as of December 2016 it’s barely in the Top 100. This can give you massive insights on what consumers love, hate, or just not feeling any longer.

Another way to track apps is to use App Annie and see a more detailed approach to downloads of apps, revenue estimates, and market data vs. surface level lists.

In this same aspect and process you can track what the top VCs in the world like Sequoia Capital (early Facebook investor) and social media celebrities like Gary Vaynerchuk are investing iin via Crunchbase..

How to Find the Next Snapchat Spectacles SnapBot, Look for the ROSE

We figured it out.. or so we think we did :0)

Snapchat is launching their Spectacles Snapbot vending machines in every location associated with a ROSE!!

Don’t believe us.. check out our Tweets…

UPDATE!! Thanks to the homey @GolfGrouch on Twitter we are now thinking the “ROSE” association is because of this video per Wikipedia.. being filmed at Santa Monica Pier and shows the Playland Arcade where the Snapbot was placed there..

Update: Nov 20th, 2016 Snapchat just place the next Spectacles Snapbot at the Grand Canyon close to a city called Meadview, AZ which has a “Rose” road.

So there you have it.. If you want to know where to look in a place near you scope place with either “ROSE” in the street name, business name, or landmark.

And here is a link to their map to check out times of launch.

snapchat rose

Pop Up Store NY Update.

No more Snapbot out in the wild and more Spectacles pop up stores to come? but a Spectacles Store on 5 E. 59th st. New York, NY 10022 surrounded by ROSES!!! again..

Updated: November, 23rd, 2016
Well well well, another Snapbot in Santa Monica… another ROSE location!!!

Updated, November 26th, 2016.. The Snapchat Spectacles Snapbot was placed at Florida State University today.. which the main entrance has a Cherokee Rose..

Update: November 27th, 2016 the next Snapbot has landed at the Grove in Los Angeles by 3 different Rose Associations..

Another update..

Just read 10 Essentials Snapchat Founder Evan Spiegel can’t live without.. #1 ROSES!!!!

And again with Miranda Kerr spotted Flower Shopping!

Think I’m on to something here..

Update: December 1st, 2016 – Snapbot is now at the OUE Skyspace Los Angeles right off 5th & Flower Street.. YES, flower street..

Maybe it’s not just about Roses.. and its about Evan’s love for flowers in general as pointed out in the GQ story and Daily Mail article above where Evan and Miranda are flower shopping together.. The Rose has been very prevalant with the other Snapbot locations. But other than a “Rose” Law Firm not so much this time.

Also, Miranda Kerr shared this instagram post for Thanksgiving with a floral arrangement.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! ❤️❤️❤️ #thankful #MirandaKerrForRoyalAlbert

A photo posted by Miranda (@mirandakerr) on

And this on Twitter..

And instagram pictures are both tagged in with Roses behind them

Raise your hand if you are engaged! ? #MirandaKerr said yes to #Snapchat founder #EvanSpiegel ?: WireImage

A photo posted by HELLO! US (@hellomagus) on

Update December 3rd, 2016.. Snapbot has landed at Six Flags Magic Mountain next to Hilton “GARDEN” Inn..

And the “flower, Rose, association” continues..

Other observations with all of these Snapbot launches are…

  • Flower/Rose Association (Evan & Miranda love flowers) and Snapchat HQ is down the street from Rose Ave in Venice Beach
  • They have been launching them at or close to college campuses..
  • They have been launching them in places that are amazing to use their product (Grand Canynon, Blue Whale, Big Sur, Skyspace Los Angeles..)
  • Maybe there is an opportunity for companies, events, or places like a Six Flags Magic Mountain can pay to have snapbots in their locations in the future

Update December 4th, 2016 Snapchat’s Snapbot was in Los Angeles for the 4th straight time and this time it was by the Hollywood Sign and again close to Roses and Flowers!

December 7th Update Spectacles Snapbot lands in Altoona, Pennsylvania by Penn State

And as always there is a Rose, Flower combo with a little college atmosphere thrown in this time..

Update: December 9th, 2016 Spectacles Snapbot is in Breckenridge, CO and close to “roses” and flowers again in a very unique ski town.

Ok we are done tracking Snapchat’s Vending machine Snapbot for Spectacles.

And who knows if it really was following a pattern of Roses or Flowers or not but it was fun while it lasted. There no longer are lines in the New York City popup store and this Snapbot marketing strategy was great but is now beginning to fade.

Gary Vaynerchuk Predicting the Future Again with VaynerTalent

Gary Vaynerchuk is at again.. He is predicting people are going to have a content team around them just like he has executed for his personal brand vs. dropping 7k a month on a PR person..

From Gary’s slide on DailyVee 80 he says VaynerTalent is..

We create, produce, and distribute premium content across the media landscape to build personal brands and businesses for emerging and established talent.

He also gives some examples of celebrity personalities, musicians, artists, athletes, CEOs, and visionaries..

vaynertalent

This is a another parallel service that ties in to everything Gary Vaynerchuk does and is about. This coincides with launching VaynerMedia, VaynerSports, being an investor in Snapchat, his 60 minutes piece on influencer marketing and his end goal of making all of his assets and the VaynerMACHINE help him turn around a nostalgic brand one day into a Billion Dollar Sale..

He is going to take an old school brand that he can buy on the cheap and then run it through this VaynerMachine to flip it for billies and then buy the Jets.
