Your opinion please, who buys those unbelievable promises?

10 replies
You know the ones like:

Make $24,000 in 24 hours guaranteed!

or

Get 1 million people to join your list by dinner.

Really, most ads look grossly overrated to me and I'm wondering if I'm just jaded in my old age.

Do people really buy from those ads?

Thanks,

Tom

    I guess a lot of people do as people make a lot money with them. It is ofcourse always logic which should prevent you from buying them. Simple logic proves a lot of these products worthless.

    Personally I am surprised there are that many people buying them.

      Unbelievable isn't always untrue.

      I've made 6500 in a single day. Fact whether you believe me or not doesn't matter. Some people do.

        I do not question you made $6500 in a day or someone made $24.000 ; it happens and I have done so myself as well, but the fact that you would sell that idea makes no logical sense *at all*. If it is repeatable by others, then you can copy it yourself too by hiring people and thus make much much more yourself, or it doesn't work or is not that simple.

        I have seen both the don't work and the not that simple. And by not that simple I mean quite impossible for anyone else but the ebook writer, if at all possible for the ebook writer.

    Well, I hate to say it but these ads do appeal to some people for the very reason that as you might be able to notice, the text is very appealing and it's what people want to hear; fast and easy money.

    I'm not proud of it but I have written a few articles in the past that really sugur-coat the details and, as a result, have recieved a sizeable number of sales and, inevitably, refunds.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Thanks everyone for the input.

    POWERCENTER, it occurred to me that your comment that "Unbelievable isn't always untrue" answers the question as to WHY people buy. It might be true.

    When I first started to look for ways to make money online, I used to buy into those kinds of ads.

    I believe those ads are targeted to newbie's and there's like a million new people logging on to the internet each day, right?

    That's why it works...

      Indeed. I guess it's just a matter of economics and what numbers are viewed as "more unbelievable" than the rest. Something to think about.

        Even if their claims are true, the likely hood that it'll still work is decreased from moment they start selling the information
