How often do you do it?
As a buyer, I mean…
How often do you fall for a new shiny object, priced at only $7, and you buy it because of the promises and the praises in the comments…
And then you end up with a new piece of seven dollar junk!
I just did it again yesterday, because I found a product I thought would help the product creators on my list. Since the guy ignored my question about getting review copy (which is often a sign of a bad product), I bought it.
Did I learn something?
Yes, but not what the product was supposed to teach. I got some ideas, though.
But it also made me question this:
Should we as affiliates promote $7 products at all?
I've done it. I've even priced my own products at $7 or $9.95.
And I've promoted great products for $7.
But let's face it: The majority of the $7 products are NOT worth the price.
You get what you pay for – or maybe even less than you pay for.
A high-level marketer in a Skype group just told us how he sold less products when they cost $7 than if they cost $27, $47 or more.
Why? Because people associate higher prices with higher quality.
And often with good reason.
One of my subscribers wrote and told me that he didn't want to buy a product by Erica Stone (as far as I remember) because it was priced above $7. He took this as a sign of a greedy vendor.
I disagree, for the most.
Sure, there are vendors who make $7 products but sell them for $47. But they are rare.
I see more vendors who sell $1 products for $7!
So after this rant, I want you to think about this: Should we as affiliates stop promoting $7 products? Have people lost faith in them? Are they – mostly – worthless junk?
I would love to hear your thoughts about this.
P.S. In case you're curious, this is the product that inspired my rant: https://warriorplus.com/w/a/zjv8x – It has some good ideas in it, but you don't learn to write a sales letter…
