Offline Gurus, Top 12, Not recommended Don Lapre Critique
On and off for many years while couch potatoing and
channel flipping, I would come across Don Lapre and his eternal infomercials. I
could only watch for several minutes, as I would become gaseous because at
night I want to relax, which was difficult because he behaved like he just
drank a six-pack of red bulls.
At that time he was the infomercial king and a top
marketer. Obviously he was making money because of how long he had been on TV
pushing products. He is an expert at getting you to pull your wallet out.
The following are comments of others in regards to Mr.
You've ever seen these infomercials of his, then you know how easy he makes
everything sound and how motivating he is. He has incredible on-screen
appearance and charm. He really knows how to put plenty of hype and sizzle into
his offers and I'm sure he's made a fortune for himself.
But I also feel that even though he's good at promoting
the name, Don Lapre, he's not so good at helping others make money like he says
he is. I don't think he's ever going to tell you the truth about how he makes
money. In my opinion, he doesn't want people like you and me to know his
The weird part is that in his infomercials he has tons of
testimonials from supposedly satisfied customers. I just don't believe a word
of those people. And of course, he says none of those people have been paid for
their testimonials. But I just have a feeling that they are a lucky few people
that got in on his stuff really early back when his stuff was new. And I think
these people that claim to have made money by using his techniques probably had
a natural gift at marketing already and maybe past marketing experience.
All of his students looked highly intelligent to me. They
didn't look like just some average people off the streets. I bought his course
because I wanted to make money but I felt like his course was just a long sales
letter trying to get me to buy much more expensive products. I felt like I got
ripped off because it seemed like what he sold me was an incredibly long sales
2) “I got his course several years ago when he was
doing the reminder service and I was not to impressed with the results. The
people doing the reminding needed reminders themselves it was not good. I was
impressed though, with the persistence of his telemarketers. Before I even
received the course, they were hammering me with phone calls to purchase his
much more expensive tutoring sessions.
I have always been into nutrition and taking care of
myself, so I was interested in “The Greatest Vitamin In The World", the
WHOLE WORLD. Imagine that! And the testimonials he had on his commercial made
me sure I was on my way to Financial Freedom.
But wouldn't you know it, before I ever got anything, I
received a call from one of his telemarketers. If you notice on the bottom of
the TV screen there is a disclaimer that says something like these students may
have purchased more expensive training to reach their current status. This is
what the telemarketers WILL call you about!
I did FINALLY receive the package and found that it was
the same old stuff he used before. Go to your friends and family etc. NO
3) “Please read this if you
are thinking about buying anything from Don Lapre and his merry band of crooks.
I would like to tell you a story about a person that didn't do his homework on
infomercial gurus. It is I. I had been laid off my job on 9/6/00 and just
happened to see Don Lapre on the TV one early morning and fell for his get rich
I plunked down my $39 for his money making package with
high hopes of being able to make some money while I looked for another job. I
had not even received the package, when his telemarketers started calling with more
pipe dreams to sell me. Well to make a long story short I fell for them hook
line and sinker. Below is a letter that I wrote to Don’s gang with a copy going
to the Attorney Generals office, trying to get some satisfaction, results, or
get my money back.
I'm writing to you because of all the problems that I've
encountered since I signed up with you on 11/21/00. From the start when I
bought my 8 web pages (1 each for the making money catalog and making
money bookstore and 1 each for the 900 lines nothing that has been promised
has taken place with out me having to call your people and complain about it
time after time.
For example, my keywords (400 of them) were never put in
my catalog and bookstore pages till I called and complained and even then it
took them 1 month to complete this. Then there was the problem with my secure
server. My e-mail address was never put in so if anybody did find my site by
accident, I would not be able to take orders. The forms were first sent to you
put in an envelope and sent back to me. When I complained of this it took your
people 2 more weeks to put in my address, but they spelled my name wrong so I
still could not take orders. When I called and complained about that it took
another 2 weeks to get it corrected. Now for the STRAW that has broken this
I found out 2 weeks ago that I have not even been
submitted to a single search engine or have my key positions put in place. Now
according to what I have purchased from your company I'm supposed to have 400
search engine submissions for each of my websites (8) for a total of 3200
submissions. I have called 4 times in the last 2 weeks, getting a different
person each time to try to correct this problem. So far my total return has
been $2.60 that was brought in on my DATE line. But for the investment of over 4 figures I think that you would
agree this is not a very good rate of return.
With this said, I either want all my money back minus the
getting started package of $39.95(preferred), or have your people get off their
asses and take care of these problems. Now I know that neither you Don nor
anyone else will contact me on this so I guess I got screwed. But I will put
out over the Internet not to do business with your company if I don’t get any phone calls or
satisfaction concerning this letter.”
Well that about sums it up on this guy. Let Mr. Lapre
enjoy his red bull, and definitely hold onto your money on this one. I do not
recommend him at all.
