The 10 sales tactics that might trick you into panic-buying an online course.


1. "The course is full" (but suddenly a place became available - buy it quickly before it goes!)


2. "Only 2 spots left!" (in an email to thousands of people, 2 weeks before the course starts)


3. "Totaly value $1999 - buy today for $9.99" (Meaning: it is only worth $9.99)


4. "Normal price $99 - today only $79" (Permanent discount - illegal in some countries)


5. "The world's most successful course" (Says who?)


6. "Lifetime access" (so you can buy it and forget about it)


7. "Unlimited Speaking and Writing" (you mean 24/7? Just write and speak all day?)


8. Affiliate Marketing


9. Testimonials


10. Other red flags - bad spelling and grammar, plagiarism from other sites, stolen watermarked images, Click Funnels.


If someone emails you to tell you that they could charge hundreds of dollars for their time, but they want to help you for free, there are red flags all over the place. Walk away. Find someone that you know, like and TRUST.


Big tutoring companies can afford to lose you because there are plenty more people who will fall for false advertising.


Maybe it's time to consider the smaller business who focus their time on developing quality courses rather than scamming their students.


End of rant.
