I got off most of the lists around 2008 I guess, so I haven't been paying too much attention. But are there really any "big" IM launches going on these days? I'm assuming that they are still going on, but maybe not on the scale or coordinated effort that they used to. Or perhaps those same gurus have moved up the value chain.
If they aren't, what do think "killed" the big launch? Greed, the economy, people tired of gurus? Decentralization of "Power"? All of the above?
I hadn't thought about it much, but I am still on John Reese's email list and saw that he launched a "Reese Report" membership site for $97. If I remember right, he used to do that back in 2004-2005. He had it going for about a week and just got an email that he dropped the price to $30/month. In the old days, that was unheard of....plus I hadn't really noticed others promoting him.
What do you think?
PS. For the record, this is just a topic of conversation...not "Guru Bashing". They could make more money now than they did back in those days for all I know.
