Most people have an information product to sell. Usually it's between $500 and $5,000. You know, CDs, a manual or two, a few DVDS. VIOLA! $2,000 product.
I've bought a few near worthless WSOs here. But most are real courses that I would expect to buy for between $1,000-$3,000. Even most of the reports would sell for $300 or more if they were also read onto a CD.
I read posts where people are asking for a "review copy" when the product is $5.
And read posts where a $5 book on Amazon needs more proof that it is the magic pill, before someone will plop down a few dollars.
What is the difference here on this forum?
People here are just used to getting something for close to nothing.
Since the products are digital, they just sell for far less.
Most people on this forum are not making any money, and that's the real reason (I'm not trying to be mean here)
It's simply a crowd that isn't used to spending money.
After a few years, it's a matter of price conditioning.
Or, is it that there really is wealth made here that I can't see in huge volume and back end sales?
For example, I bought a WSO for (I think) $27 with nearly 8 hours of video, every document you could think of, software that should have been $500 by itself, and quick answering of customer questions. I was astounded that it wasn't $2,000 from one of the better know Gurus.
I'm not trying to be a jerk. I'm serious here. I'm not setting up a WSO myself. I'm nobody's affiliate. Hasn't this question been raised before?
Is offering a product on a forum simply that much different than in a group presentation? That may be the answer, and I'm just not seeing it.
