Writing Bootcamps

Writer extraordinaire Bob Bly’s got a fantastic entry on his blog today. He asks:

Is it just me, or does it seem to you that yet another of the new crop of self-styled marketing gurus is announcing yet another “Marketing Boot Camp” just about every other week?

(I’ve cut a lot of his post here.)

He goes on to say:

… does it bother you when every speaker ends his talk by handing out an order sheet offering you an expensive bundle of his videos, DVDs, and coaching services…

(I’ve cut more here.)

I know I’ve been to seminars… paid big bucks… only to be hit up again for an additional grand or two to receive the rest of the information I thought I’d be getting for my initial investment.

Personally, it drives me nuts.

What do you think?

Here’s the link to Bob’s blog. Highly recommended reading if you ask me.

Talk later,


P.S. Tomorrow. Back to queries. Promise.
