If you’ve ever been on YouTube, as I’m sure anyone of you has, there’s one man that you might find telling you to “Pay no mind to that man behind the curtain!” (yes, the Wizard of Oz reference was necessary).
His name is Coffeezilla, and he’s a viral sensation on the YouTube Creator’s list by pointing out fake gurus, fake online courses, and online Ponzi schemes (and much more).
But what gives?
Unfortunately, if you’re a successful marketer, you may realize that by pointing out these people, he’s only putting them down, and it’s really just downright hurtful.
Not every online course is a scam and not every webinar is invalid.

Plus, there are a lot of truly good people offering a service out there (like myself) who aim to help people by saving them time, money (by improving a truly positive return on investment), and so much more!
So let’s get behind this Coffeezilla and see just why he’s just as bad as the “fake gurus” he’s claiming to point out!
Please note that even though he points out fakes that there are real online courses that work, that are worth every penny.
The key is knowing the bs or seeing the red flags…..they are easy to spot.
But thanks for the attention…ha
Are There Scammers Out There?
Of course, there are some big “guru” names out there in terms of being successful on other people’s dime.
Coffeezilla himself makes a bad name for people who are successful just because every person who purchases their programs aren’t successful.
The true scammers and fake gurus are the ones who don’t offer any type of support out there.
You can’t judge your lack of success on someone who’s providing quality training for others.
Not only that, but many of the problems that customers of these programs face (when it comes to lack of success) is simply because they don’t put everything into their programs. When you’re wanting to be self-employed, and wanting to be a true marketer, copywriter, web designer, or any other online entrepreneur, it will remain a side gig making minimal income unless you treat it as a true business.
Interesting enough, it appears that old coffee is promoting affiliate links under his YouTube channel so it appears like he is just trying to get attention to make money himself
And every person who Mr. Zilla points out on this actually DOES tell people this important fact.
Get rich quick schemes are the ones you need to watch out for. Similar to the whole bitcoin thing with the infamous Crypto Nick and other “ponzi schemes” that existed just a couple years ago. They were the ones making claims that if you signed up for their affiliate links and followed their footsteps in cryptocurrency trading and investments, you could be a millionaire in as little as a month…
Truth is, not without investing a metric ton of your time and money into it can you truly succeed that quickly.
Coffeezilla Makes Everything Look Like a Scam
The real goal is that Mr. Coffee wasn’t successful doing his own guides, and he’s taking it out on other people.
He didn’t obviously put in the efforts that he should have, and while he’s shaming all of these other people, he himself has been successful doing one thing – putting down other people.
The downside to this?
He’s a hypocrite.
No, I’m not putting him down completely; there are some helpful things that can be found on his YouTube channel.
However, the majority of his videos are about finding “fake gurus” and in turn, he’s not putting down just the gurus, but the entire online education system.
He even puts down copywriter webinars that truly do help to make those without any inkling of copywriting more successful than they were before they attend.
If you’ve ever gone to Udemy or Upwork, you’ll see that there really are a lot of successful people who attend seminars, marketing, and other seminars, and in order to achieve these, you normally won’t be selected if you’re a free user.
And some of the same teachers on Udemy have a much deeper education platform outside of Udemy, for many reasons.
One of them would be because of video quality, the next is how Udemy treats their course creators.
Just so you are aware, you can watch YoutUbe video after YouTube video to learn things but you can not create a successful online marketing business without investing in yourself.
After all, do you think this website is free?
Do you think that getting this page ranked in Google is by accident?
It all costs money, nothing in fact is free, with that being said, be willing to invest in yourself if you are serious about chasing an online dream….seriously!
Most of the acclaimed fake gurus who were successful do have one thing that Coffeezilla himself also doesn’t have.
And that’s a real Q&A system.
He just puts videos out there which are one-sided.
Sure, he interviews people and involves a couple of other successful marketers in his personal circle to help go against the likes of Kevin David and John Crestani, but other than that, nobody’s heard of these people.
After all, think of it this way, if you were to make a lot of money from the internet then you wanted to share your knowledge to help others if someone started putting you down for it then how would you feel?
Would you go on his YouTube channel just to clear your name?
Would you waste your time?
Or would you ignore it?
I think the answer is clear.
And he doesn’t answer or educate people himself by answering questions.
Along with that, many of the fake gurus that he tries to put down DO truly have a net worth that ranges anywhere from hundreds of thousands annually to over a million dollars.
His own net worth? $69,000 – and it’s all from his YouTube channel due to monetization and views.
He makes a comfortable living from his rants, and he doesn’t tell people this or tell you how he does it.
He also doesn’t tell you how he is getting in trouble numerous times from slandering successful people in order to achieve his own fame and mediocre success. And then he gets mad when a person he puts down retaliates?
How to Spot a Real Online Education System
Enough about Coffee talk… Now that I’m done ranting, I’m going to point out some truly good things that people can get from real online education and training courses. There really are people who care about other people like myself. Here are some things to look for to make sure that the online training you’re getting is real:
1. They don’t post Lamborghinis and say you can get rich quick.
You may notice that a lot of these gurus have cars… The truth is, it’s not that they don’t have a right to splurge on their success, but they don’t achieve this overnight. And if you expect or they tell you that you can, then you can almost ensure that you’re going to get hurt in the process and might not have the same results.
2. The creator and trainer actually takes the time to talk to and respond to theirchatters, e-mails, or individual trainees.
A lot of gurus that Coffeezilla talks about actually take time to teach their people, or they started out doing so.
Of course, over time, they eventually are successful enough to start getting automation involved in their courses, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
They do this because they still want to help people succeed while they’re too busy doing press conferences, conventions, and scheduled meetings with companies.
They make this their job. I can teach you the automation with my courses with the numerous marketing tools like ManyChat, Zapier, Marketer Magic by Kevin David, and more. This just means that you will have time once you get everything set up to actually do what’s important while your automated tasks work in the background for you – your job itself.
3. They ask you how you’re doing and follow up with their customers.
One thing that you want to pay attention to, is that true online educators do care about you. While they may mass-blast e-mail their customers and subscribers, they want to know how they’re doing! Why? Because we really care!
4. They don’t offer bogus results.
Here’s the truth of any successful marketer. There are ups and downs, good times and bad times, slow times and hectic times. No matter what type of entrepreneur you are, you aren’t going to be super successful 365 days of the year. What’s important is that you’re successful at all. Many people Coffee puts down teach people this factor (he himself doesn’t).
For example, if you’re a marketer and copywriter, you may have to work twice as hard one week in order to meet the same income you got on the previous week.
More importantly, one month, you might make a couple grand, while the next month you only make $500. It doesn’t mean you’re being unsuccessful; it just means that online jobs fluctuate in terms of results. What’s important is your total ROI (return on investment) that you get.
5. While they may use successful marketing tactics, they are bound to human error.
Don’t get me wrong, every person who teaches and even is on the learning side is going to make some mistakes along the way.
Failure is actually one of the keys to success.
It allows for us to learn to better ourselves in the future. It’s the ones who fail, and then start blaming their own failures on other people that you need to watch out for. It could be as simple as a grammatical
6. They teach more than their own success stories.
One big thing to watch out for in order to get the right training possible is that you get real training from someone who shares more than their own success.
Many YouTubers out there, as well as fake gurus, and even those who “put them down” may offer their own success stories or failures. That’s great and all, but what’s also important is that they teach you how to make your own success/failure stories yourself.

My Smart Bot Marketer courses aren’t just tailored to what worked or works for me, but also what will work for others.
All of the standardized training that is shared with everyone has had a lot of market research and heart and soul put into it to make sure it works on a universal level. But I don’t stop there – I actually also help my fellow marketers and even clients who are treated as equals to ensure that they’re building systems that cater to their own business, niche, or success.
Everybody’s different, and so is every company and business, whether it’s a corporation or just a solo proprietorship.
So is Coffeezilla Completely Wrong?
The answer to this question is both yes and no.
There are a lot of fake gurus out there, as I mentioned earlier. This does make a bad name for many people who are trying to succeed and getting “screwed over” per say, however, there are really a lot of good people who are truly self-employed individuals (if you want proof, look at the job market in America, in which self-employment has increased more than 10 percent over the recent years – and many of those self-employed individuals are online-only entrepreneurs and businesses) that care about helping other people, other businesses, and each other out there.
We have to stick together because people like Coffeezilla also make a bad name for all of us by saying that “it’s all bad and wrong” or “it’s all a scam”.
Truth is, that’s stereotyping, and that’s not right either.
So with all this being said, here is a completely free offer to help you see there are good people & good courses from you to learn from.
Online education is a great thing if you aren’t chasing the shiny object.
