If you’ve read this blog before, you will know my views on Jason Kanigan. If you haven’t, where the hell have you been?
To summarize: Kanigan has reinvented himself as a ‘sales training’ expert on the Warrior Forum, despite a background completely devoid of sales experience. (See related posts and his use of fraudulent video endorsements procured from a dude on Fivver.com)
He works for a mobility products provider.
So despite his posturing and positioning as a self-appointed ‘expert’ in sales training, he clearly cannot rely on generating enough income to quit his day job.
He provides ‘training’ for cold calling wannabees on the Warrior Forum having gobbled up and copied a few books about selling.
However, the sales training side of things doesn’t seem to be going so well now for Jason…if the number of spam affiliate marketing emails he is sending out is a good indicator.
And it normally is.
Before I go into the gory detail, let me explain something to newbies and anyone who wants to succeed in business.
It’s this: calling yourself something doesn’t make it true. So when you come across a guy calling himself a ‘sales training expert’, it doesn’t actually mean he is one.
It just means he writes that down and hopes that if he does it enough, he will become one.
And if he spends enough time on a place like the Offline Section of the Warrior Forum spouting bullshit about sales that he has read in a book..he can call himself an expert.
It doesn’t work like this.
You will see from the screenshot how desperate Kanigan has become to extract some benefit from his time spent online.
He is an affiliate marketer now!
So he is spamming like a good one..
Below you will see the emails he is now sending out to people who signed up to learn about ‘sales training’.
June 21st-some Wordpress security plug in
June 22nd –same Wordpress plug in
June 26th –same plug in
July 1st -12 days until he closes his WSOs forever-this is an old trick. Close the bloody things I say.
July 7th –same bullshit about his WSOs
July 7th –some outsourcing affiliate product
July 8th –some video product from Andy Jenkins and Mike Filsaime
July 8th –same video product.
Are these the actions of a successful sales professional?
Or someone who is desperate to ‘make money online’, no matter what it takes?
Some Lessons for Newbies
If you want to learn about doing business, either online or offline in the real world, you won’t learn it in the Warrior Forum.
Just because somebody calls themselves something doesn’t make it true; it is just electrons on a computer screen.
Real sales professionals are not hanging around on the Warrior Forum day after day hoping to flog ‘training’ or a WSO; they are out in the real world providing real training in real conference/hotel rooms to real people.
Don’t sign up to Jason Kanigan’s list-he will just spam your inbox with a whole pile of affiliate crap.
More affiliate, spam emails since publishing this article...
July 9th-the Video product again
July 9th- the Video rubbish
