    Try before you buy.

    It works everywhere else, why not with all IM.

    Free trials, free 1000 backlinks (stuff like that) etc - Are the main reasons I purchased those programs or offers.


    If your service is really worth whatever you're charging, prove it. By that I don't mean give out the whole thing, 10,000 backlinks etc.
    Go give out 5 Social Bookmarks, return to the eligible customer with a report, explaining what you've done, how it will benefit and what the full version will mean.

    I've bought a few things on here, I'd say 8/10 were really worth it, the others, just didn't perform.


    Get ahead of the crowd, prove your service is the real deal!




    -- Note, not a thread to encourage free stuff that I may then get. Not really bothered if it's free/ costs. As I purchase things I look into and find to be a worthy investment. Simply a small suggestion I think may benefit some members of the community - If requested I can also include the services/ programs I have purchased due to receiving da fr333 st00f.

    Try before you buy works on products that you use and own afterwards.

    It doesn't work on services.

    Most people that want something for free won't spend a dime in the future anyway. Many simply leech off of one service provider and move to the next. If a customer does not value a service provider's time by making a payment, those are precisely the customers they should avoid.

    Anything worth a shit to improve ranks takes effort. I personally would not waste my time hoping to persuade cheap asses to get off their wallets. There are many willing clients that are not scared to put some skin into the game.

    Well I suppose, I'm a dying breed.

    THE HONEST CONSUMER. Jeez.

    Free Trial Software is probably a better example of what I'm trying to say here then.

    A lot of businesses have signed up with Groupon (the group buying / daily deals site). The businesses offer cheap deals, often designed to be a loss leader - tons of people buy the deal of the day because it's cheap, and the businesses hope that once the customers are in the door, they can convert them to long term customers who pay full price.

    What happens in reality is that the type of people that are attracted to "deals" just turn up for their cheap deal and never come back. The business has to provide them with the goods or services that the customer has paid for, usually at a loss. Then the customer is off in search of the next deal, never to return and never turning into that long term customer that shifts the loss into profit. It turns out that the type of customer who is attracted to a low price deal is not the same customer who turns into a long term, profitable customer for the business.
