    I was looking for some lastminute facation, when a friend who works in the airline industry told me something I never had thought of

    What they do on those last minute sites is that they track your IP (with cookies, I am not sure) and then when you return the prices for the destinations you visited are increased. that is genius right!

    they know that you are interested when you come back to the site. and why don't we do this in IM?

    sell a product for (example) $17 and when a visitor comes back later the price is let's say $23 not a lot but it's $6 you made more. and if you sell like 1000 copies you made an extra 6.000, simple

    excuse me if this is already used by some of you. but this is to my opinion genius

    Not bad, but maybe you will loose some of the buyers, because of the 6 dollars plus.:)

    Nice one! I can see it working if the product is good enough.. If the buyer really wants it he/she will buy it in fear of the price increasing AGAIN.

    yes of course, you have to brain storm before use it

    but if you make it a OTO first for around 17 and people come back later and have to pay 23, what would you do? if you really want it you buy it! and you probably really want it, because for what ells would you come back?

    A risky marketing plan. Lots of factors that might affect the success of this plan, quality of product, competition, niche, market value, etc.

    Was this supposed to be something new? Yes, they track your IP and they set cookies - they do both. They have also tens of other variables that actually form the end price! :)

    Those systems are elaborate. I am interested in implementing something similar to my sites as well! :p Good thinking!

    Very interesting concept! To understand if you can get away safely with it you need to add a CPA survey on the same page. If they click on that, you can increase the prices 2-fold, if they complete it, you can safely increase them 5-fold and you'll be fine! :D

    At least one would put to use those stupid IQ tests... ;)

    And for those with more then 2 visits, the price would actually drop, to encourage them to buy. For those with more then 10 visits in a short amount of time, the price would remain the same, but their IP would be banned, because they would be most probable bots.

    In a world with so many exit popup discounts, this is a great idea.

    Folks, this will only work well in industries where prices are known to fluctuate frequently.... Don't do it on ebooks or services, as you will lose buyers. Only do it on sites that are product based. The reason it works so well in the flight industry is because flights are commonly known to change frequently. Another great industry is electronics and hotels. Concert tickets and vacation packages (like cruises) are some other good ones. Just my two cents.

    Yes, it's very sneaky, I watched it when I was checking air tickets to Eu - after a few days of checking the prices were up at least 20%! Then I cleared the cookies :D

    So if the product costs $10, I'll refresh the page 10 times (assuming price decreases $1 per visit) and I'll get the product free :D
