What is Millionaire Tai Lopez Net Worth and is Tai Lopez is a Scam?

Updated: April 25th, 2017 

You either know who Tai Lopez by now or you might be new to the social media game, How do we know that?

According to Tai Lopez and his Google reps his videos have been viewed over 200 million times per year. (see Social Blade stats here over 145 million views)

With that many views most of you either know who Tai Lopez is or are one of many that are searching about Tai Lopez Net worth, Tai Lopez Scam, his wikipedia page, or to learn more about his social media marketing agency training (SMMA) program.

Once Tai Lopez got famous off his “I’m here in my garage” his books are better than his Lamborghini video on YouTube everyone started to reverse engineer who he is, how much he makes or his net worth, and ask “is Tai Lopez a scam ?”…

For the record, and without having to read this entire post we do not think he is a scam and is killing the social media game.

He is doing this by marketing in the year we live in and using social media platforms so well he even has an a program that will teach you how to create your own social media agency and students are already making there money back and then some. Learn more and sign up for that here while you can.

Don’t believe us.. Just see Google Instant search autocomplete drop down.

This is nothing new with people because when a lot of people get attention because they are using social media to show “hustle”, sell more shit, and get attention this drives people to dig into who they are and are they real or not and what are the results of them being so public and showing what they know on social media to the world with Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

This happened with Gary Vaynerchuk too as you can read more about that here.. here and here

Recently we found some really good content by Lewis Howes  where he provides an hour long visual interview of Tai Lopez where he won’t mention things like his age but also admits he knows people look up his net worth.

This is one of the first interviews with Tai Lopez where you can really learn more about who Tai Lopez is.

Also, if you are looking to learn how to use social media or start your own Social Media Agency check out Tai’s program here

Also, here is a new interview with Joel Salatin one of Tai Lopez’s mentors as he describes how Tai Lopez was at the young age of 18 and 19.

 

Tai Lopez Scam

Another video recently that caught our attention is from Justin Wu where he talks about whether he thinks Tai Lopez is a scam by recently going to Tai’s Beverly Hills mansion at an influencer party.

This again is probably one of the best Tai Lopez Scam videos which again is the 2nd most searched term after his name on YouTube and has over 23,000 results..

However, out of all of those Justin’s and Alex Becker’s are probably are favorite and we included them below so you can be your own judge.

We think he is a great marketer and repackager and we don’t think Tai Lopez is a Scam.

He is leveraging all the top platforms with attention to reach a target audience of mainly 18-35 year old men that love cool cars, women, and want to be their own bosses.

Whether its teaching people to build their own social media marketing agency or investing in real estate.

He brings in mentors, experts in related niches as well as his take from experience and books he reads on how people can leverage this digital economy and live the good life of health, wealth, love, and happiness.

He is providing content in different formats mostly digital now for ways for people to digest it. Including 150 snaps a day on Snapchat again moving with the digital market.

Instead of reading 100+ page book or listening to an audio book you can just follow Tai Lopez on social media and he will give you the gold from other successful people.

Justin’s video explains that best below.

Alex Becker’s video actually connected him with Tai and had him at his conference to launch his book and he gives another great explanation of the marketing side of Tai Lopez.

Tai Lopez Net Worth

As for Tai Lopez Net Worth some sites have it around 3 to 5 million dollars. We think that is a real low ball..

Why? Only 1 of his programs 67 steps he has said had over 100k people go through it..

Easy math = $67/mo x 100,000 =$6.7 million (RECURRING) and we are sure there is high recurring % and he has other programs like the accelerator program that use to be $997 and now is 3 to 4 payments of $997.00.

This doesn’t even include the affiliate money he gets from Amazon for promoting books, other affiliate deals or programs with OMG and  Sam Ovens

He also launched a Real Estate Program with Cole Hatter that is $997 and a Social Media Agency Program that is $697-$997 range depending when and where you buy it as well.

This doesn’t include homes he says he owns around the world (Norway, London, La Jolla ect…) and his Beverly Hills home he mentioned he leases under is business name which lowers the cost of that home’s expenses.

Recently he bought his 2nd Lamborghini an Aventador (has a $400k MSRP) and a Rolls Royce Dawn that has a MSRP of $335,000 which again this was his second Rolls, and he still has a Ferrari 458, Maserati Quattroporte, another Rolls and Lambo..

During a recent video with H3H3 he actually admits he leases the Ferrari 458 which again reduces the expense of outlaying the cash to buy the cars outright.

If you add up his car collection alone it’s close to $2 million. And for the people that say he spends money on ads.. Yeah you need millions in the bank to spend and risk as much as he does so $3-5 Million net worth is probably the floor and now you can see why we think his net worth is a lot more than the $3 to $5 million shown on other net worth sites.

With so much recurring income flows and renting some homes with buying others he probably has very low if any debt.

Gary Vaynerchuk “Mortified” and Says it’s his Fault as CEO of VaynerMedia for Sexist Cannes Party Email Invite

About 13 hours or so in Cannes Cindy Gallop sent out this tweet asking Gary Vaynerchuk what is up with the sexist “attractive females only” invite for VaynerMedia and Thrillist’s party in Cannes.

Gary Vaynerchuk quickly responded via Twitter Video as he has before to put more clarification and context around people questioning him.

He said in his Twitter Video reply to the sexist email that went out that..

“Cindy thank you so much and I’m mortified.. I’m… Listen at the end of the day when you are the CEO any production teams or people you work with you hire it’s your fault so I’m really upset I don’t know the details yet but I’ll find out and I appreciate you calling out the issue. I wish you well, Thank you”

Then after that people still tried calling Gary out and here are his replies on Twitter..

And just recently in the last hour or so another person just Tweeted another invite (which they say is fake in their tweet) with the same “selected female invite only” language and Gary is trying to find the source of that one as you can see here.. And Adweek talks about the incident and his apology here.

On top of that the company that it was tracked to be outsourced to “Igetin.com” site has blocked all traffic from it’s site. We tested with proxies from the US and France and still get “forbidden” no matter what IP is used.

Paige Hathaway Top Fitness Instagram Model Says She is No Longer with Shredz on Snapchat

Last updated: July 25th 2016 If you follow the social media game like we do you know everyone is making millions of dollars, building brands, and creating online empires by leveraging these platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.

To learn how “influencers” and brands use social media you can a learn a lot by watching, listening and engaging with them on these platforms. As an example Shredz supplements company came out of nowhere and was built by using Instagram and fitness models posting pictures and videos of themselves everyday repping their brand.

Paige Hathaway is one of Shredz popular fitness models (or now we should say was..) that exploded on the instagram seen taking on the likes of influencers like Jen Selter.

Paige Hathaway is currently 28 years old (in 2016) and from Oklahoma City, Paige Hathaway was born on July 31, 1987 in Minnesota.

paige hathaway

Just today on Snapchat is the first time we heard her announce that she is no longer with the “supplement” company she was known for in the last four years. Which leads us to the next thing about social media influencers and brands especially in the fitness space and other industries.

Once an “influencer” or social media celebrity realizes they can just take the audience and community they have that follow them buy directly from them vs. pushing products/services for other brands lending their name, influence, and audience they can just develop their own products, services or membership sites as Paige has now done.

Think about it for a second…

If you have social media influence or even an audience of a few hundred or thousand people why not sell directly to that audience that knows, likes, and trusts you.

We think this is going to be more and more of the trend going forward and you will see a lot more brands, products, services and companies being formed under that “influencers” name.

If you are a true “influencer” why do you need a brand any longer when you can just use these social media platforms to go directly to your community and audience. The only time these influencers will take brand deals is when they don’t sell something themselves or in certain cases they can be paid to do both like Scott Disisck or Naomi Campbell

Paige Hathaway Instagram is where it all started

If you have some time and really want to learn more about social media influence, instagram sponsored posts, and how Paige Hathaway built her brand and helped Shredz on Instagram check out her instagram and look at each post, comments, ect..

A few Instagram growth hacks a lot of these instagram influencers use are;

  • “tag someone”

Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith of PrankvsPrank & BFvsGF YouTube Channels Break Up & Stop Vlogging

Recently on social media we noticed a ton of fans of Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith (PhillyChic5) things like….

So we went over to their BFvsGF channel where they have 8.8 million subscribers and noticed this “A New Chapter” video where they announce a “break” from each other and a break from daily vlogging as it brings too much pressure to their life and relationship.

Jesse Wellens says he is moving back to New York where recently he was working on a YouTube Red subscription show Prank Academy and Jeana really just seemed hurt and lost at this point.

Jesse Wellens also said he will never Daily Vlog again and says Daily Vlogging is not a healthy lifestyle. He mentioned they will always love each other and might do a daily challenge video together in the future. Jessee mentions it’s a very tough situation since they tied their career, relationship, business, and money all together based on showing their lives on YouTube together.

We are hoping for the best for them and that they can find happiness outside the 18 million plus subscribers they gained by sharing their lives on YouTube.

This is a lesson for people that think they can just become a social media influencer or use Youtube to make money…

The money doesn’t create a healthy, loving relationship or happiness, just gives you more options in life instead of working a 9 to 5 job. You have to be careful on using these public platforms to get attention and then turn that into money and a career.

Update! – people are saying Jesse Wellens cheated on Jeana with Kristina Askerova and pointed us to screenshots of him commenting and liking her Instagram pics and in her Snapchat.

Also, people saying this affair Jesse Wellens and Kristina Askerova has been going on for months when they moved from Philadelphia to New York and when Jesse Wellens was working on YouTube Red Subscription. Reddit credit, Imgur credit

Gary Vaynerchuk CEO, VaynerMedia DIG SOUTH 2015 Interactive Conference

Here is a recent 2015 keynote by Gary Vaynerchuk the CEO of  VaynerMedia where he drops some of his famous quotes and shares his insight on growing a business in the world we live in.

Gary is big on Attention in his keynotes in 2015 and it’s very similar to what Grant Cardone has preached for years. You need attention before you sell or influence anyone. Gary gets a ton of attention because he actually executes.

If you pay attention to this video you will find a golden Facebook dark post tactic where Gary has turned WineLibrary into a Buzzfeed type content site and uses specific content with Facebook ads to hyper target people and sell over $18,000 of wine. As he points out 99% of you that read this and watch the keynote below won’t execute this strategy.

Also, content marketing with amplified PPC Management marketing is huge right now and getting great results.

Nora Segura Meerkat’s Marketing Queen, Actress and Model

nora seguraIf you have been paying attention to social media lately there is a new way to reach and engage with people online that is heavily tied to Twitter via live streaming apps.

The first app to do this successfully off Twitter’s API initially was Meerkat and then Twitter shut off parts of the API and purchased Periscope. If you want to learn more about Meerkat and Periscope feel free to check out our other posts about each live streaming platform.

This post is not about each of the live streaming apps Meerkat and Periscope that are leading the new wave of live streaming with a mobile app and leveraging Twitter (after companies like YouNow, JustinTV, SpreeCast, Ustream and LiveStream) but it is about Nora Segura and to learn more about who she is and how she has reached the top of the leaderboard of Meerkat in the #1 spot above Madonna who streamed once and hasn’t used Meerkat again.

Who is Nora Segura?

Watching her streams she has said she is a model and upcoming actress. And when searching online you can see from her website more details about this:

Fluent in four languages. Lived in Stockholm, Marbella, London and Paris. A Hippie Child, raised by young parents who are vegetarians and working in Alternative Medicine. My father is a Buddhist and taught me from early age how to take care of my body and mind.

Also, doing some Google searches you can find articles where her internet fame really started taking off after dating the U.S. World Cup soccer goalkeeper Tim Howard around the summer of July in 2014 almost a year ago.

In early Meerkat streams she mentioned she met with the head of casting at Universal Studios and is possibly going to be in the Fast 8 (Fast and Furious 8 moving coming out in a few years).

Lately, she has mentioned she is going to keep modeling and will possibly create her own movie and start taking money from big brands that want to leverage the attention and #1 spot she gets on Meerkat.

Why Nora Segura is smart and how did she reach the top of Meerkat’s Leaderboard?

Everything in this world when it comes to following money and the marketing and ad budgets of brands and companies is ATTENTION. Wherever the eyeballs are the ad money follows (Google, Facebook ect…)

Whether you garner attention like the Kardashians who bring in 10 million a season or 500k an episode or you are Gary Vaynerchuk leveraging the attention to build a multi million dollar social/digital agency, sell books, and charge 50, 80, 100k for a keynote the reason people pay them is the attention and fan base they have built with that attention. And in most cases they executed something like building a business with proven sales or reaching the #1 status within a social media platform like Meerkat.

So why is Nora Segura the #1 Meerkat Stream?

She is building an audience and gaining attention by now being the #1 Meerkat live streamer. And the way she gets attention is aligned with what she is about. She is a model, upcoming actress and normally live streams in lingerie or what she would be wearing to a photo shoot. And with any attention there is always haters which is another sign that you are doing something right. Most haters are actually admirers or they soon turn into admirers.

We have seen many early live streams of other leaderboard streamers hate on Nora and then when she gives them attention they actually start to act star struck or begin to like her. There are a lot of lessons learned by watching live streams that translate to business, money, social media, and life in general.

While some people love Nora Segura some might hate on her hustle and that’s ok because when you look at some of the most successful people in the world as an example Howard Stern they hit a niche audience and community and still draw in people that normally wouldn’t like there content but still listen to or watch it everyday and that is just part of gaining so much attention and its also what makes them different and stand out to get that attention.

The oldest marketing and advertising trick in the book is to use “sex” or sex appeal as a selling tool. Simply put sex sells whether Mashable likes it or not.

She is very consistent with her live streaming and at least live streams once a day and most of the time streams 2-3 times per day to keep her score up by gaining viewers, comments, likes, and restreams. With any type of marketing and branding consistency is key and she is nailing that and it’s another reason she cruised past Madonna who only streamed once.

Also, she realized to mainly stick with Meerkat where it is easier for her to maintain the leaderboard attention vs. Periscope where people already have millions of hearts and is very overcrowded. Meerkat nailed it with the leaderboard scoring because it makes people want to “play the game” and get attention by racking up their point score which is a lot easier in a less crowded Meerkat world vs. Periscope.

So Where Does Nora Segura go from here?

Some interesting things we shall see with Nora Segura is will she hold her number one spot or will the Godfather of Sales, Grant Cardone who has been crushing it on Meerkat streams catch up to her. Grant went with Periscope at first since there are a lot more users and viewers there but one thing smart he did that we think Nora could do is well is stream with both at the same time on different devices since it’s all about attention and money follows attention right?

What will happen with Meerkat?

Lastly, will Meerkat be able to succeed with the initial 14 million in funding and become another alternative with a different community similar to the search engine wars where Google owns 65-75% of the market while Yahoo and Bing linger on the desktops/laptops of buyers that don’t know how to change their default search engine after buying their new laptop on Amazon or at Best Buy? Some say Meerkat will be bought by Facebook in the next 6 months…

Other Nora Segura tidbits:

Nora Segura Shorty Awards 2015

  • Nora Segura loves playing music during every live stream especially music from Drake and Kanye West you can see her Spotify playlist at NorasMusic.com 
  • Nora loves the use of hashtags and screenshots during her stream which is another way to get more attention on Twitter (another smart move) She encourages her viewers to screenshot her broadcasts and share on Twitter. This is something Grant Cardone is starting to do as well by having his audience share their notes on his branding, finance, sales lessons on Meerkat
  • Some of Nora’s favorite hashtags are #score #norasmusic #forlife #norawest #savethewater #inthemorning #sexeating
