It's okay we totally understand

We have nothing against these online gurus but we have something against people who don't come in prepared to ask tough questions before engaging a "marketing guru".

Here are the unconventional question you can ask them that will immediately signal you know your stuff (even when you might not always)

 

#1 Do you have any business that you didn't manage to help?

Good answer:

Yes. Usually, people ask about success and results but the truth is marketing is mostly art than science meaning a precise 100% hit rate is going to be hard to achieve. What we want to find is someone honest about some of their experiences that didn't turn out so well - because that means they'll keep your best interest at heart. 

Red flag answer:

"never had any failures, 100% always win all the time"

#2  Can you guarantee me results?

Good answer:

"No because things might not turn up as we predict it, but I can say that we usually have a good success rate"

Red flag answer:

"of course, I guarantee you your sales will triple immediately"

 

#3  How do you make your money apart from fees?

Good answer:

"I only take fees" or "I take fees, and if you sign up for some of the products I recommend, I get commission"

Red flag answer:

"only fees" - if they say this ask them again "so no affiliate commission from companies at all?

  

 

#4  How will I pay you in stages or lump sum?

Good answer:

Lump sum payment might be an issue alone. a staggered payment of is an ideal case.

Red flag answer:

only lump sum. - if that's the case, then use escrow services. which is a service where you park your money lump sum but both parties have to agree to release payment (protect yourself)

 

#5  Will you teach me some of the techniques or will you do all of it?

Good answer:

Depends on client preference. if they want to learn, then you better persuade the "marketing guru" to teach you certain areas that you really want to know.

Red flag answer:

No visibility and it's just only them and you have no idea what they do or how they do it - going to be troublesome and you'll be dependent on them alone.

 

that's it folks, next time you interview a marketing guru - time for you to be on fire
