We all know how much Troy R James likes to call himself a viral marketer, however, where’s the actual PROOF?
The only place you’ll find confirmation Troy is a viral marketer is ONLY in his own press releases!
Have you actually seen any proof, confirmation or evidence of his marketing abilities that hasn’t been a paid press release, or is perhaps from one of his ‘JV Partners’, or other ‘associates’? – Troy’s own website is a pretty dismal reference for a viral marketer, there’s NOT ONE reference or example of his work showcased. Google+ doesn’t do much better for him, and despite his claims, the Troy R James You Tube channel is laughable, with a mere 1700 odd subscribers in 10 years.
All quite laughable, when you consider the ‘viral marketing’ claims he makes!
Once again, we’re just pointing out the TRUTH surrounding Troys’ OWN viral marketing claims – Surely the fact that these claims aren’t actually backed up by ANY VERIFIABLE EVIDENCE that he can provide must call his claims into question? If he’s been a viral, guerilla marketer to the rich and famous as per his press releases for 20+ years, perhaps he forgot to mention his World’s Biggest Video Contest FAIL in 2011?
Surely a viral video contest, with a prize pool potentially in the millions (lol yeah, right! 😉 ), would create a buzz across the internet marketing world? NOT if Troy is running it! LMAO

And the results of Troy R James’ ‘The World’s Biggest Video Contest’?
JUST FOUR SUBSCRIBERS, & NOT ONE SINGLE VIDEO ENTRY in the three months the ‘competition’ was open! YEP, you guessed it, totally viral as per Troy’s usual marketing performance! 😀
Absolutely NO ONE entered. Even the 18 comments on the video are from fake, related profiles. SAD BUT TRUE. Anybody can pay a Fiverr gig to get You Tube video views, so we’re guessing that as no one actually entered the competition, and ALL the comments are from fake, related You Tube accounts, the 20k odd video views are about as credible as Troy’s viral marketing abilities.
More truth about Troy’s viral marketing expertise, as it happens in the real world. You can check out the original World’s Biggest Video Contest FAIL YouTube page, with 20,918 total views in over 5 years.
