A fool-proof money-maker
 
Some time ago a marketer told me that a customer had
purchased the same book from him no less than 7 times.

I assume the customer had a very bad memory.

Which gave me an idea.

I'm going to write a book with a title like
"How to improve your memory"


I'll set it at a low price so that its an easy sale.

Then in my follow up campaigns I'll give extra tips on
improving memory until, a few weeks later, I tell them

"I hope you are enjoying these tips in my newsletter.
There's hundreds more in my new book - How to improve your memory"

See, they will most likely have forgotten their original
purchase and will re-order.

The next step is to invite them to become affiliates with
the maximum ClickBank 75% commission.

Then I'll switch the rate down to 10%.

If they complain about low commissions and say they thought
it was 75% I'll simply tell them they are confused with
another ebook.

I could be cheeky and say
'Your memory is not too good, how about buying this book . . '
but that might be taking it a bit far.

What do you think ?

I think you've been reading Friedrich Nietzsche, who said:

"The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time"

One of the advantages of bad memory is that you can hide your own Easter eggs!

That is soooo funny! The one liners are the best...

Thanks for the laugh - I needed it - I've just been informed that my car is terminally ill:(

I feel much better now!:)

You can always tell when you have bad memory, it's always on the
tip of the tongue...lol

Won't work, Harvey. From personal experience I can tell you that the customer service load is a nightmare. Every day you'll get hundreds of "I can't find the ebook on my hard drive -- can you send me the download link?" requests...

Hi Harvey,

I know a few people that money-maker would probably work on.

Now I'm not talking about any of my customers. They are the best.

But here's one guy I'm pretty sure would fall for it.


Have a great day. :)

Best Regards,

Jim

This is hilarious. Maybe make a hard copy book on "how to improve memory" and just visit an old age home once a month and keep selling to them. Sounds like easy work to me!

Amusing post!

That would be easy.

I would just send them to my Clickbank's Order Link with text:

"You may download the book from the following link:

>> Insert Order Link <<

If I told you how many WSOs I have purchased 2 or 3 times you would make your Memory ebook a WSO.

However my memory does seem to be improving a bit. Knock on wood. BRB someone is at the door.

Thanks for that Harvey. Sometimes I think you should have a signature that says "by the way everything in my post is a joke" because I'm sure some people will think you're serious and start looking how to do this. :)

A bad memory is pretty common for IMers too - how many times have you seen someone selling a 'never before revealed secret'?

What a horrible scoundrel you are - preying on the unfortunate.


And now for my latest idea.

It will almost DOUBLE my money.

How about upselling the customer with the very same book !!


I've done some beta testing and here are the results.

My thank-you page says

Thank you for ordering my ebook
"How to improve your memory"

blah .. blah

blah .. blah

By the way I'm sure you would love the sequel
"How to improve your memory"



Now, some 70% of customers also purchased this 'sequel'.

The others said

'Harvey, did you put a wrong link in there - this
looks like the original book'

I brushed them off with an excuse about an out-of-date page
and an old offer.


Then came the master stroke - and it shows the power of split testing.

I changed the page to

Thank you for ordering my ebook
"How to improve your memory"

blah .. blah

blah .. blah

By the way I have something extra for you.

Please click to next page



You see - by the time they reached the next page the
previous information was a blur and an amazing 95% now
ordered.

I'm now working on the next stage - recurring income.

I've already prepared this template response

"No sir, you misunderstand.
When you saw the $9 price it was a monthly fee.
Surely you didn't expect me to sell this outstanding book for a pittance."

Yeah, well unfortunately for him, Nietzsche died horribly from syphilitic insanity, if memory serves (irony intended). Maybe he forgot which of the prostitutes he frequented were unclean.
