Uh oh.

I can't believe it.

This is... well... I don't know quite what to say.

I know, I know... a rarity for me to be at a loss for words.

But yes, it's true.

There's a new entrant into the world of "offline" marketing consulting.

He's running PPC ad campaigns on Facebook.

He's a marketing powerhouse.

He's non other than....

    That almost seems like a joke. That site is horrible in most every way possible. He may know how to sell on an infomercial, but he doesn't seem to be getting the IM part right, at least it doesn't appear that he is.

    Ugly website or not, he's out there and he's not waiting until everything's perfect (my main problem)! I just don't get the "three" website thing though: LapreConsulting, I'm Going Bananas and Perfect Audio???

    My favorite part:

    For example, I lost $5,000,000.00 on just one real estate venture and that was when real estate was HOT! Hahahaha, NOW THAT'S STUPID:-) Just keeping it real:-)

    After I understand your company, I might be able to help you find a few great answers to helping you get a lot more clients!
    Let's chat soon....

    Forget web design, he needs copywriting help!

    I'm not so sure this is a good thing for our business actually. I've feared the writing has been on the wall for some time now - just like the good ol' web development business back in the 90s.

    All of a sudden, people started buying copies of Microsoft Frontpage and before you could say "HOLY TERRIBLE TEMPLATE BATMAN!!" there was a flood of "web designers" entering the market with their awful templates and $100 prices. They literally destroyed an entire segment of the market as business owner after business owner got burned to a crisp by hacks and scam artists. The market never recovered.

    That is exactly what is happening right now in the world of internet marketing consulting to traditional business.

    It will collapse upon itself in a blaze.

    Only the real players who understand BUSINESS will survive. The rest will get jobs.

      I agree - already these local businesses are getting slammed with walk-ins
      all day - people trying to sell them Internet services.

      ....Dan Lapre - OMG!!!

    That site literally choked my browser with all the videos on it needing to load.

    Wow!

    I guess that's one way to prevent someone from hitting the back or close button...make their browser lock-up! (just make sure to get your headline in their before all else so they are forced to read that short sentence for 2 minutes)

    Wow - I guess the "Worlds' Greatest Vitamin" he pitched recently wasn't so great afterall?
    It's amazing to think anyone would do business with him or ask his business advice if they're at all aware of his past.
