This whole comment reminds me of the rise and prominence of the words “marketing”, “brand” and “sales” in the red-pill/manosphere community as well as in some PU spheres. Here’s a funny but truthful mix of words: marketing yourself as a salesman is bad brandingApart from him spamming his links on Chase's website I actually see his tactics as ingenious. At this moment we have to consider this man as a salesman, NOT as a PUA. He is not occupied with principles or ideals except making some good bucks. In order to do this he has to appeal to a broader community hence avoid unsafe feeling words like pua and using more socially accepted terms. "Phd" Is just one of those.
I've known plenty of academics at one point and it struck me how they lived too much in their heads and not enough in the actual world. They seem to be unable to truly observe social occurences with their eyes, despite that less intelligent people could do so in the same situations. They tend to adapt real world facts to the intellectual paradigms by which they already live. This is a broad generalization but I have seen this unfold many times.
However again, academics is not relevant. This is MARKETING. Everything which can give him authenticity and authority helps especially when it goes with a socially accepted frame. Spamming this website gives him a bad rep though and is not what he should be going for.
This is an agreement with your comment in case there’s any confusion. It’s just something I’ve noticed over the years. Former X needs to change “brand” to Y to keep money following. Every redpill or pua grifter I’ve viewed always chatted at some point about the significance of “branding”, “sales”, and “marketing”. Anyone imo who needs to emphasize or do a lot of branding, marketing or salesmanship rubs me the wrong way, like a guy who’s poorly spitting a routine (which I’m guilty of lmao) or mass approaching with no awareness.
I’m not familiar with this guy though, so I can’t deeply comment on his choices. Your comment just reminded me of all the money chasing that goes on, as well as all the PUAs ive read and even met who just so happened to be money chasers
