This week I actually clicked the link on the email which suggested I could make $4,000-a-week without having to go to the bother of actually selling anything.
It was one of those “no, no, no” emails, the kind that tells you what the program isn’t about and very little else.
This sort of thing in fact:
“…make over $4000 each and every week…WITHOUT doing a single bit of marketing!
“- NO PPC
“- NO SEO
“- NO Mailing lists
“- NO Facebook, Twitter or any of that
“- NO bogus paid surveys or emails.”
You get the idea.
So I clicked on the link and read the long copy sales letter which was full of more details of what the program was not about.
Here is a screen grab from part of the site:
According to the dictionary, the word “fact” means “something which is indisputably the case” and the first of the facts shown on the sales page is that “anyone in any country can make money with this.”
A bit of a bold claim I thought as I read that, so I checked the small print and found this:
The small print says that people who use this system: “…may lose money…or make [no] money at all.”
So putting the two parts of the puzzle together I can only come to the conclusion that if I buy this product one of three things will happen:
- I will make some money
- I will make no money
- I will lose some money
Having read through the entire sales letter, and still being none the wiser as to what the product wasm I decided to close the page but was stopped by an exit pop-up.
The marketer in question was so disappointed to see me go without buying his product that he wanted to give me a “free money-making website” for my trouble.
Apparently this website’s normal retail price was $1,995 but I could have it for free simply because I didn’t buy anything.
I wonder what my free gift would have been if I did actually decide to buy from him?
A small planet and a gold-plated mermaid perhaps?
