My question to you is why do marketers always sell products and programs with the attached agreement that you buy OTO's. Is it greed or what? End of line

    It's not really an "attached agreement" but marketers add OTO's and create sales funnels to to maximize profits. While you may or may not agree with the strategy, many marketers make it work to great effect.

    Cheers

    As Gordon Gekko said, "Greed is good!

    Seriously, it can be looked at as two pronged. Greed while also providing an additional quality Product that truly can help your customer

    It's like going to McDonald and while you paying for a hamburger at the counter, the cashier asks you if you would want fries and sodas with that. It's not like you have to buy the OTO but an upgrade is sometimes a better deal.

    The only time I don't appreciate OTOs it's when you get lost in the funnel. Too many upsells and downsells in one sitting is not only confusing but downright frustrating.

    Which is easier to get people to buy? A $7 WSO or $47 WSO? Yes, $7 because more people buy at a lower price. And once you buy at $7, you are now in the buying mode, and therefore easier to get you to buy again; except this time it's $37. And so you spend a total of $44.

    I'm guessing the gurus who test large funnels figured out that they make more money with a $7+$37 OTO funnel than just a one time $47 offer.

    Not just a WSO phenomenon. Humans are historical adept at maximizing profits. Doubt it's gonna change anytime soon

    Basically, it is a scam. Often, you can find better deals than the ones these used care sales men offer you. OK so as we say... keep both your eyes open. Also, try to find ratings on these scamming scum. Most of the the time there are none. Do you wonder why that is?

    Internet marketers say:

    Reputation management gives you max power In fact, you can transform damaging negative reviews into an uplifting positive experience.

    Frankly, I do not think so. There are no ratings for a reason. Most people would read real reviews. That would stop more suckers from swimming into a net, but here we are.OTO means:
    one time offer

    However, spammers hit me with the same OTO again an again.

      Dude..Relax. Most OTO are not scams. They are just upsells.

      I only consider an OTO (upsell) a scam if you need to purchase it in order get any benefit from the main product that you purchased.

      Otherwise..It is nothing scammy about upselling.

      Like you...I hate OTO's. That does not make all OTO's scam's. It just means we both hate OTOs...lmao.
