3 Ways to Prevent Scams
The cool thing about marketing any product is finding ways to legitimately sell your solutions to people who actually are demanding them. The rewards are both personally fulfilling for you and for your customer. That’s a real win-win.
The bad thing is, as you are a customer, too – particularly when seeking help or good advise for starting your business, you are exposed to the devilish methods of people who have seemingly no other mission than to take your money…
…they really don’t care if you get anything from their product or not.
I agree with you that this is deplorable conduct. In fact, it just plain sucks. I would add you can also control this.
I don’t meant to the degree you never buy something you don’t really need, or you don’t buy something you thought is great, and turns out to pure crap– regardless of how you skin it.
So protect yourself. Try doing this…
- First, when you see a software promising you instant traffic or instant money, stop and think. Put on your reality hat. There is no software that does this.
- Next, look and see who is selling it. Is the payment processor someplace like Clickbank, where you can be sure to get your refund? Is the seller someone you have experience with and you know you can easily contact through email, or a support desk?If non of this is true, do a little online research. However, you must be prudent here, too. Many people are posting bad reviews simply because they had expectations that weren’t real to begin with, and they blame it on the vendor. Nonetheless, do some research. Consider going to places like the Warrior Forum to check reviews.
I’ll grant you that you can’t find good reviews on everything there, and many of the people reviewing don’t know what they are talking about. So use prudence there as well.
- Finally, evaluate if what you are looking at is actually something you can use right now — when your buying it. If not, you’re likely to download it and forget it. Then you’ll somehow determine the product was no good to rationalize your not using it. So avoid this. Buy what you can actually use — right now.
These guidelines can save you a lot of money, and lot of headaches, and a lot of frustration. They’re simple to use, if you first maintain your cool when reading sales letters or watching sales pitches.
