I have never seen the John Beck infomercials. What you are describing sounds like what I have heard about the first one. That is probably not running now. The new one has endorsements from people who buy real estate through tax sales.
I’m surprised that John would not come over too well on television. Maybe because he is a “hot” person who gets excited about what he is talking and, if we believe McCluen, TV is a “cool” medium. John says that the infomercial was cut from a one-time through interview, so it was probably not as good as could have been done if they had done more work on it. I think the original plan was to have some testimonials too. Those were never shot. The whole thing was done on a shoestring.
John has an MBA in taxation and real estate, as well as a law degree. He is definately articulate. For several years he made his money by putting on seminars about real estate investing, as well as selling books and tapes on the topic.
