Remember when everyone was throwing Tupperware parties? And then there was that lady from the neighborhood who always left those Avon brochures on your doorstep.

How-tos, training, and tutorial products are a big business. Sometimes it seems that anyone online who has done anything has written a book or recorded a clip telling others how to do it as well.
