Do you remember him?
He was selling a 'get rich' scheme that was in essence giving you the resale rights to promote the same information he was selling as your own through 'Tiny Little Classified Ads' in newspapers/magazines/etc. whatever was available in the early-mid 90's :
On TV infomercials that ran during the early-mid 1990s Lapre claimed that by placing "tiny classified ads" in newspapers he was able to make $50,000 per week from his one bedroom apartment.
Isn't google exploiting this same business model?
In 1992, Lapre began broadcasting The Making Money Show with Don Lapre, which promised viewers that they could make money as easily as he had. For several years the show was ranked among the ten most frequently broadcast cable television infomercials. The principal product was Lapre's "Money Making Secrets," a package of booklets, tapes, and common sense tips for placing ads and operating a 900-number business. The product was sold through New Strategies, whose parent company was Tropical Beaches.
Where is Don Lapre now?
