What is the most you've paid for an IM product ? What was it? Did you use it?

    I have paid $197.00 and I have been using it since. Most of the higher ones, I know either seminars or other product launches will be re-launched or used for a opt in or bonus later on.

    I typically invest in tools that help me save time. Video/Ebooks will depend on who is doing it and whether their past products has received any good reviews.

    The most I paid was around $197 for the Internet Marketing Center course. A very wise investment as it's an all-in-one course for newbies. I still use information from it today. I've never needed anything else, well besides this forum.

      The most I paid was for a keyword reseach tool, I used to use it, not so much anymore, and it was around $167 if I remember correctly.

      I paid $199 for one product last year that was brilliant. Martin Avis's newsletter formula. I now have a list who read my newsletter and even buy products I recommend

      I also paid $299 for a traffic product that was complete rubbish. the forum is still up with a pile of disappointed and confused buyers.

    I've paid upwards of $500 for specific tools in the internet marketing field. On that particular case, I well made my investment back.

    In terms of information, I don't like to spend more than $50 without feeling pretty comfortable that it is good stuff.

    I pay $97 for SENuke monthly, and need that tool for my local offline business.

    Interesting so far. No one posting has purchased a Kern course for $1,997 or a seminar for $5 K yet.

      A long time ago I bought a 4x course/simanar that cost $5k. I made about a Million Dollars....


      On the "pretend trading for practice" module but never had the nerve to do it for real.

      They said you could invest $100 and make $10,000. I figured out while pretending to trade you can also invest $100 and lose $10,000

    I paid $250 for a product that now sells for much more.

    No I didn't use it, but it was not the sellers fault. I just never got a round tuit. (I have lots of things like that but no others cost more than $97. )

    Now, having admitted that I didn't use them I have to say I do not consider them a loss.

    You see, when I first got started with IM I wanted a lot of IM products, but, I could not justify spending "family" money for this new "business" of mine.

    So, when I wanted (and still want) an IM product so bad I can taste it I have to figure out a way to get it with PlayPal money.

    The sales process that makes me want the product is valuable to me and the "do something to buy it" motivation is very invigorating.

    So, although I have a truckload of products that I don't use they are not considered a loss to me.

    Another thing, TONs of things I bought came with PLR, RR or MRR. I put them in batches and sold them over and over again and recouped any and all money I ever spent and made a modest profit to boot.

    I paid $5000 for a Mike Glaspie Coaching Course a while back

    One on One coaching over Skype with an appointed coach, it was good but $5000 was a bit steep.

    I'm ashamed to say that I won this contest. I can't tell you how much I spent, but I will say that I didn't make a cent, I did actually make an effort and follow all the steps, and am still paying the credit card today...

    Word to the wise, (or like me the gullible) don't spend over $5,000 for something that doesn't come with a money back guarantee. (And that doesn't mean "Make xxxx, or we'll keep mentoring you until you do.) That won't get you your money back, and all you'll have is a crappy mentor asking what I think I should do...

    I've learned a lot from the experience though, and now, when I get calls from companies offering a way to make xxxxxx online, I tell them my cards are maxed to the limit, and they usually hang up on me.

    I've spend about $47 max on a product. Beyond that is a little bit steep for me. I will probably shell out more than that if I want to invest in a good keyword marketing tool, but not for information.

      A few months back, I bought Ewen Chia's book online for around 25 dollars. It's a great book that contains step by step directions, just the way Ewen did it. Best investment I ever made!

    $1k to $2.5k several times.

    I believe it was around $1,000 for a Russell Brunson Micro-continuity seminar/training. Otherwise most of the stuff we buy is between $27-97.

    $180K for Enterprise Solutions platform (media version).

    Well worth the money if you are doing $1mm/year or more in online business.

    It was the biggest purchase we ever made other than office space back when we had office space or the Prime rabbit mini-computer back when we needed one of those to do payroll.

    2nd largest IM purchase ever was a $120K media buy from Yahoo.

    Everything else has been five figures or less.

      Very Nice. My house cost $240k NOT an IM investment, but I do work out of it

        Frank Kerns Mass control 2.0 @ $1995

          Geez, I'm a piker...

          Biggest cash outlay was $997 for the infamous Mark Joyner Farewell Package. Sold two of them as an affiliate, so it was a wash...

          I still have the CDs in a case here somewhere...

    I bought a package for $247 a few years back.

    This sort of investment even for newbies when spread over a few monhs is nothing really.

    Just spent 160.00 plus bucks a few days ago on a popular Word Press theme development licenses and it's not Thesis.

    It's not for me, so far I really dislike it.

    I hope it grows on me over time.

    I think, this is the most I've spent at one time, on any type of IM product. I have spent more,but it has been, a little here and there.

      I bought the late Cory Rudl's course for $197.00. This was
      maybe 5 years ago. Still use it even to this day. It sits
      on my bookcase for easy reference.

    $10,000 is the most expensive I've purchased.

    I regularly buy all the $2,000 - $3,000 IM courses that are released.

    $200 for the 2006 version (physical copy which I still have) of the Internet Marketing Center's course. And $97 for Market Samurai. Go SAMURAI.

    It pains me to say $2997 for one of Yanik Silver's products. While I did learn a LOT from the material, I'm not sure if it was really worth that much. It did help me to get started, though, and I did make a bit of money using the knowledge. So I guess the real question for me is, "How do you put a monetary value on knowledge?"

      I think thats the same Y Silver course I also bought.

      I agree with you that it is massively over-priced as is the case with most of his products.

    I was hoping to notice a pattern by the responses.

    Do the people that buy the $1,997 product without worry do so because they have the bucks, because it's their nature, because they are successful? Do those that buy the expensive stuff become more successful as a whole? So far, can't tell.

    Most I ever spent was God knows how many years ago. I shelled out in one week's time for BOTH Rudl's IMC stuff AND Key Evoy's SBI. Total came to about $500. I digested every ounce of both, came away from it super jacked up that I was going to dominate the world, and then I...

    ...did nothing.

    Didn't even attempt to implement a single damn thing from either one. Let myself get consumed by overanalysis paralysis, thought of a million and twelve brilliant ideas to begin working on..."first thing tomorrow!"...and never started on a one of them.

    Fast forward to late 2009. Decided after copywriting for a while freelance that I'd give it another shot, and got back into the game. Bought a couple WSO's that worked well together. Spent a total of like 60 bucks, and got started immediately. As a consequence, already seeing results.

    What I've taken from this is that when it comes to information, the size of the pricetag has little if anything to do with the quality and usefulness of the product. Trust the "buzz" more than the sales materials, and it's hard to misstep.
