But many of the claims in sales letters are not changing and we are seeing
lower response rates.

"Make $1000 a day"

"Make $300 an hour"

All these claims are causing visitors to throw up their BS defenses.

Suggestion: Moderate your claims. $60-100 a day is way more believable than $1000 a day. I'm not saying this can't be done - far from it. But if you are presenting a claim, be modest in the claim - especially in the biz op market.

You may just be stunned by the increase in response rates.

    Alternative suggestion: Tell the truth! Wow! Wouldn't that be a refreshing change?

      I agree with this. I think your customers will appreciate it and will probably extend the life time customer value. Or maybe not.

      Telling the truth is always good marketing.

      But in some cases, the truth is "too good" and not believable.

      So maybe I should have said, dial down on your claims and make sure they are legit.

      Thanks.
