Put Some Reality Back Into Your Offers, Please.

I just received an email from a well respected internet marketer.  There was the inevitable affiliate link to the next ‘best thing since sliced bread’ offer.  Now, I have  no doubt that my life would be revolutionised and improved beyond recognition by this product.  (Actually, I do but let that pass).  However, the true value of this offer was discounted by 90% to – wait, you guessed it $97!

Why is everything $97, or $27, or $47?  I do not know about you but these psychological selling points do not work on me, they just annoy me.  All I want is a product that works and that is cost effective.  Which is why I only recommend things that I have bought and use or if I have not used them I tell you up front.

    Oh I totally agree.

    I hate getting emails about ‘the only thing you need to make money online’, until the next week of course when you absolutely have to need that weeks latest and greatest ebook.

    Arrgh enough already!

    Great Blog by the way

    Tracey :)

    Thanks Tracey,

    Sometimes I think that I am turning into a grumpy old man, so it is good that someone else shares my gripes. One of the things I decided when I started this blog was never to recommend something I had not bought or used. Just a small step towards promoting only worthwhile ideas, books etc. That is why I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending my readers to your no-nonsense blog. http://www.tracey-edwards.com
