Who is Scott Alvord, really?
A little review as we’ve been unraveling the image of Scott Alvord. We’ve taken a deep look in to how he has been taking credit for other people’s work to self-aggrandize. We cited two specific examples – how he took credit for road construction that had been planned for over a decade and pre-empted the announcement of the Amazon Hub coming to Roseville, blowing hundreds of hours of work and hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in a media drill.
We also dove in to his business ventures – seeing the same pattern of exaggeration and grandiosity. Research indicated that his books have sold few, if any copies.
Our first installment of the expose on Mr. Alvord can be seen here as we eviscerated his actual stances on the issues of the day when juxtaposed with his claims of being a moderate.
One of the selling points of Scott’s self-proclaimed resume’ is his business advanced development concepts, LLC. It is a web design and marketing business. It was also used as the front for publishing Scott’s books. It is deceptive, but perfectly legal way to not have to outright say that your book is self published. It would be like me using my insurance agency to publish my book.
We had a look at Advanced Development Concepts. They claim some successes on their home webpage. I thought the layout of the home webpage was quite familiar and it resembled my company’s old website from 20 years ago.
This screenshot is from his current website. It places 3rd on page one google. See Below
I thought any good web guy would have both domains direct to one spot? Check out this video for more.
I just find the old template odd for a business that is supposed to be helping other businesses be more effective on the web. Every time I take second and third looks at anything Scott Alvord, it causes more questions than it answers. Then there is this: Storevillage.com that appears to have been bankrupt or simply out of business since 2013 is cited as a success story without validation or proof (such as the post where I backed up my claim with evidence that he has sold few if any books).
There is the template with a copyright from 20 years ago.
Typically, when I tout success, I like to point to businesses still in existence and cite tangible current facts. Allow me to use Right on Daily and a Google Search of Scott Alvord as proof that the Right On Daily Blog is effective:
That’s Page one, slot 3 on Google, above his own Facebook Page. Perhaps your intrepid blogger should open up an internet marketing firm…
Your intrepid blogger Got 2.3 Million Hits on Right on Daily in 2018. That translated in to some income, but not enough for me to claim to be a successful political consultant. I’ve never held myself out as more than a political operative. in 2019, I received over 600,000 despite 2019 being an off-year. I am grateful for this, but there has been diligent effort since 2009. My Guess is I will arrive somewhere around 750,000 hits (unique IP 24 hour average) by the end of the year, possibly 800,000. That is good traffic, but I’d be lying if I presented it as anything other than a noteworthy political blog that hits target audiences.
I am not sure why Mr. Alvord has attempted to overstate his background, but it sure looks like he has. Given that he also takes credit for other people’s work – it seems that we are dealing with the all too familiar pattern that seems to repeat with people in office.
It is time for a change in Roseville City Council… to be continued…
