Do Marketing Forums Tend To Polarise People?

I’m interested in what you think about this.

After a lot of thought, I realised the other day while talking to one of my coaching students that marketing forums tend to have two kinds of people in them.

Type 1 – People who offer dubious but convincing sounding advice, but have no real success online, and so aren’t really qualified to give the advice, they’re just regurgitating.

Type 2 – People who are successful online and who are giving usually good advice, but are primarily using the forum to market to everyone else in subtle ways.

I know this might upset or fire people up a bit, but I’m not just making this post to be contentious or controversial.

Somewhere in the middle there’s going to be good advice given with good intention, but I don’t believe I often see it.

Am I wrong about this?  Am I being too cynical?  Am I just having an off-week?  Am I even being a little bit hypocritical?

Sometimes I need a bit of help to make my mind up.

Yeah, I admit it.  I don’t know everything…  😉
