Exposing a Sales Plagiarist

  
  
  

flasherTruthfully, it's the last thing in the world I want to do. But when other so-called sales experts use their colleague's work as their own, it needs to be addressed. It's wrong to steal.

And, to me is even wronger (if that's a word) to dupe unsuspecting clients into thinking you're an expert when you're not. They don't deserve that.

Andrew Hunt of InboundSales.net is the most recent plagiarist -- and it's not his first time. My friend Kristin Zhivago recently found that once again he'd lifted whole sections of her book, Roadmap to Revenue. 

She wrote all about it here: What to Do When Your Content is Ripped Off. If you want to see how blatantly he stole from her, here's her comparison on Google Docs. Then yesterday, I heard from another colleague that three more incidents have been found.

Clearly Andrew Hunt is a serial plagiarist. It's very sad that he's stooped that low. The truth needs to be known.

This is absolutely ridiculous! The Google docs prove he is uncreative to write for himself. His twitter handle is @inboundsales. Scum!

I have a former colleague whose resume was plagiarism at it's worst. He was a minor player on the team but took full credit for our "team" success in several major deals. After reading his resume I didn't even recognize the guy that I had worked with for years.

"Sales" plagiarist? hardly. But a plagiarist none the less. That is why our writers use Copyscape, and certify the work we provide our clients is real and original.
