Want to buy a Ferrari? Use a private jet? Stay in 5-star hotels? 

According to the aspirational luxury lifestyle we’re constantly being sold in the online business world, “you too can easily have these things if you just do X, Y or Z!”.

How do we avoid falling into this trap and chasing a dream that’s usually built on total BS? 

In this episode of Duped, we’re looking at the luxury lifestyle that’s inescapable if you work in the online business world.

The seven-figure income. The passive income dream. You have to spend money to make money. If I can do it, so can you!

Which is exactly why we need to know how to spot them when we see them. 

On this episode of Duped, we’re breaking down these internet marketing tropes so you can avoid them both in and out of your business.

If you’ve been in the online biz world for a hot minute, you’ve probably experienced what’s called bro marketing.

Bro marketing is the use of psychological triggers and other persuasive hacks to shut down critical thinking without our consent. The goal is to sell more products through manipulation and coercion. 

Sounds pretty shady, right?

Even if you don’t look like a bro, or think you’re doing any bro marketing, it doesn’t mean bro marketing hasn’t found its way into your biz. It is everywhere…..which is why on this episode of Duped we’re diving in. 

We’re breaking down the bro marketing binary — what it is, how to recognize it, and what you can do to keep it out of your biz for good.
