I sent an offer to a select group on my list in order to test an ecourse I am running....the first 10 to purchase (at a reduced cost, of course) became my guinea pigs.
One objection I got was, "This sounds awesome, but I don't have a credit card."
Guess what? I have the solution.
You can purchase (in the US, anyway) a prepaid Mastercard or Visa many places - Wal-Mart, WalGreen, gas stations, etc. You can even purchase the Visa gift cards in $50 and $100 amounts at Wal-Mart, grocery stores, etc.
They all work like any other Visa or Mastercard debit card, and they are the perfect solution for those who don't have a credit card. You can use them to fund a PayPal account, as well.
Now, how does this help you?
Telling this to my list members resulted in 2 sales I would not have gotten otherwise. Since I was limiting the number of sales to 10, that is a pretty good percentage!
So now I am going to add this information in all of my offers. A sentence or two letting my list members know how they can purchase even without a credit card could result in lots more sales. It certainly couldn't hurt!
Something like: "If you are sitting there thinking, 'This is great, but I don't have a credit card to order!' - don't despair! Go to (insert website here) and learn how to get a reloadable Visa or Mastercard debit card - great for online purchases!"
Give it a try!
