Have you ever purchased a high ticket product? ($1,000+)

11 replies
If you have what made you decide to do it?

Was there something unique about it, or was it from a big name that you trusted?

If you haven't, is there anything specific that you would want? Or is it something you're completely against?

I've bought a course at 1k + and Im extremely happy with the result. I think in IM a lot of people get caught up in price points and if it's over a certain amount it's a ripoff.. this use to be my thought process (or that I could just figure it out on my own) but I can say I probably saved a ton of trial and error and in turn a lot of money as well.

    I have bought a $1,000 course. I saw the value. I feel its worth 100k. Others inside feel the same way. Plus they just added double the value by adding to the course. I really trust the owner of the product because he helped me more then any other course or system just from his free content so I knew I was going to be blown away when I bought.

    I don't believe there's a course out there worth $1000 but then I've never seen any advertising for that price and even if I did I'd never consider buying it because to me that seems extreme. Even the best of information doesn't cost that much.

    I would never spend that much on a course, unless I was being mentored by someone I TRUST. I've seen thousand dollar courses given away for free for just an optin.

      There is a HUGE difference between a program the owner calls a "thousand-dollar course", yet gives away for an opt-in, and an ACTUAL $1,000 program that people really pay $1,000 for.

        I am not talking about hype or fluff, I am talking about courses and scripts that sold for like 5 grand, then ended up being given away for free as an optin bribe later on...

          I got one that was a $10,000 dollar investment, 6k upfront and then 4k after some criterias were met. I manage to get into a monthly payment arragement for the first 6k but after the first month I realize that it wasn't worth it and got out. I won't reveal what program it was because I don't come here to bash other people. I'll tell you one thing, it was a lesson learned.

    I bought a software for a company that I was working for that cost over $1,000 and the company never pay me. They were using my program in an improper manner. (Not paying royalties to the owner.) Well, that cost me extra money. I am not making this up. Like I had to hire a lawyer - what a mess.

    Anyone that pays $1,000 for an IM course is a dumb newbie that doesn't understand the game yet. There is absolutely nothing in those courses that isn't all over the forums and blogs. And you can't fall into the trap of thinking the membership forum that comes with the course is worthwhile either. Those things are a fake guru leading a bunch of newbies. They turn into the blind leading the blind. Not to mention the fake guru sets up fake accounts to post in the forum. Their little game with that is to post as a dozen different characters who are making a lot of money. That causes members to retain hope in the system and continue paying month after month. Total scam.

    But hypothetically speaking, if I was going to pay $1,000 for one it would have to include the following elements:

    1. The publisher would need to be a proven authority figure. He can't be an academic theorist either. He needs to be someone actually down in the trenches and knows how it really is. I can't think of any guru this applies to, but perhaps they exist.

    2. He would need to have a website of significant size. Something that I can go look at the Alexa rank of and be impressed, check out at Archive.org and see that he's been around for a long time and so on. I would eat my hat if someone came up with a guru this applied to.

    3. The info must be fresh. If people have been implementing the methods for 2-3 years, that makes it stale. You want to hit the trends as they are ramping up. Basically everything packaged in courses that I have seen is so stale and saturated that the cash cow days are looooong gone.

    But yeah, I'll throw $1,000 at anyone in a heartbeat offering such a course.

    Funny thing is, there are a few people here on WF I would pay for coaching, people in the "trenches" not some come clown who got rich by outsourcing rehashed products and conning people who are looking to make a living online.

    There is a reason why Google and the FTC hate internet marketers, and it isn't because you or me, it's because some of these so called "guru" who con people by the thousands

    I bought one quite a few years back. It was NOT worth it. At the time though, you think it's worth because of the amount you just 'invested'. You'd have to provide quite a bit of value to make your product worth $1000...

    Yes i did. It was back in college when i didn't know crap. But i got ALOT of quality products, and luckily the guy who sold it to me for $997 was there for the next 3 years to help me build up my successful online business. So i'm very grateful to him for that.
