I HATE upsells.
Well, not all upsells. I mean, my website has upsells, but they're not pushed in anyone's face.
The upsells I hate are the ones that come after you've signed something. They generally pop up on the way to your free ebook, or after you've paid $7.95 to ship a free product, and say something like, "You'll never see this page again," or, "Don't let this one-time opportunity pass you by!" Then, the website creator makes it very difficult to find the right link to click that bypasses it - and when you finally find the link that says, "no thanks, I just want my free information," it takes you to yet ANOTHER upsell, this time giving you even "more" value. "So my $297 upsell was too expensive for you? I understand. How about my $97 upsell?" UGH!
These types of upsells make my mind scream, "Scammer!!! You just want my money! You have nothing of real value for me here..." (an idea later supported by the obviously low quality of the free (e)book and the missing "great information" it's supposed to contain).
Do any of you actually make good money with upsells like these?
What are your thoughts?
