Pushkar Raj Thakur Scam Case Study
Hello, friends in this article we are going to discuss the internet sensation Pushkar Raj Thakur Who has made millions in a very short Spam of time.
First of all who is Pushkar Raj Thakur. Pushkar Raj Thakur is one of the most Influential Motivational Speaker & Business Development Coach in India. He is also a social media influencer. He has started his career from Network marketing when he was 17 years old.
Recently some Youtubers had started posting on youtube that Pushkar Raj Thakur is doing scam on the internet. The income he is showing from network marketing is also false. He is also selling useless courses on the internet. Some YouTubers also claim that he is taking out the hard-earned money from the student's pocket by making false promises and running an online scam.
So let’s understand what is Scam
A scam is a term used to describe any fraudulent business or scheme that takes money or other goods from an unsuspecting person. With the world becoming more connected thanks to the Internet, online scams have increased.
From the above definition, it is very clear that Pushkar Raj Thakur is not doing a scam on the internet. As he is only selling a course for which he charging the students.
Some people saying that the information available in the course is available on the internet free of cost and Pushkar is charging for free information by running a fictitious advertisement.
Is Pushkar selling too overpriced courses on the internet?
I want to start my answer with a famous saying -
जिस का लगता है धन उसी का लगता है मन
If you have invested somewhere then only you start realizing the value of it. If so much of valuable content is available on the internet then it means everybody who owns a laptop or mobile can become a millionaire or a billionaire.
That’s not true you need to take action if you want to be rich. I also admit this fact that too much valuable information is available on the internet now. But if too much valuable information is available on the internet then I think we don’t need schools and colleges. Students can surf the internet and learn whatever they want to learn.
Pushkar has spent a lot of money on the internet and Youtube. He has taken out his precious time to create content and videos. The cost of video editing is around Rs 5,000 to 10,000. Also if we calculate the other cost such as video shooting, content writing, and marketing then it will easily cost Pushkar raj Thakur 20k to 25k on each video.
Pushkar has uploaded 590 videos till now that means Pushkar has invested 590*20,000 = Rs 11800000
If he has invested this much amount of money that means he wants something in return that’s how whole world work.
He earns a lot of money by selling online courses and doing seminars. He also claims that anyone can become rich by taking his course which I think has been over-advertised or we can say misleading advertisements. You can watch my video here on advertising ethics.
A few days back a youtube channel Soch has uploaded a video clamming that Pushkar Raj Thakur is a Scam.
You can watch this video here.
Also, Pushkar Raj Thakur has uploaded a video on his channel feeling sorry for the overpromise he has made to his audience which I think is a great move by such an influencer.

I think Pushkar has not scammed people. He has created a following and later on to monetize his following he has started selling online courses. But he has done a misleading advertisement by overpromising about his courses.
