On the old forum Allen used to send us an odd PM to tell us about something, here he asks us to read something.
But, here is something a lot of people are missing or maybe I am missing it and they are seeing it.
So often we have people asking what's the best to buy for [place in the name you want] especially if there is something people are talking about.
The advice given at the moment, is create a review site, because people buy when a product is recommended to them by someone they know and trust.
Go back and read that last paragraph again and again until it sinks in.
Allen is recommending a product, I have at times been sitting on the fence wondering will I, won't I, and then Allen tells us about it. Perfect, recommendation from a friend and trusted source.
But the other thing which is funny is the marketing strategies of those who complain they are being forced to read something. They are the ones who make you jump through so many hoops. Yesterday, I bought a wso and it was my pet hate. If you want to get this then you will sign up for my list or words like that. Excuse me I will sign up to your list, I bought I want my product. So we have to sign up, wait for confirmation, then confirm and then wait for the next email or thank you page, which still doesn't have the product link but the upsell, and then the next upsell until finally you get your download link.
I would far rather Allen ask me to read a thread, and have him tell me something is good, than these so called marketers who have nothing to offer than holding you hostage until you sign up or lose your product.
