I realize this now through implementation and through the knowledge I have learned in workshops and books. People buy based off emotions. You can get someone to buy something just by creating a value that is perceived

For example

How to make a Million Dollars In a Month Ebook (Value $100)
Think and Grow Rich Audio mp3 (Value 19.99)
Millionaire Secrets Webinar (Value $5000)
Two Tickets to Millionaire Networking Event (Value $10000)

Limited Time Offer
Only 50 Remain!!!
$99.95


VS

How to make a Million Dollars In a Month Ebook
Think and Grow Rich Audio mp3
Millionaire Secrets Webinar
Two Tickets to Millionaire Networking Event

For $99.95



The offer is what gets people to buy the product people buy things emotional and than justify them logically however many people fail to sell because they sell them with logic rather than trying to create the emotion that led to them buying the product themselves

This is true. A lot of our day to day decisions are guided upon a "gut feeling". A lot of startups overlook the idea of planting a connected feeling in potential clients.

You're going in wrong direction.

Good snippet about this in Russell Brunson's "Expert Secrets" book. I forget what the actual concept is called, it's slipping my mind... but the idea is that you're showing people the perceived value of what they're buying, and offering it at a price that is considered a "steal". Great marketing tactic because it triggers people into taking action or else they'll miss out (FOMO).

That's true, but if it doesn't have enough real value than it's nothing more than a scam.

Perceived value can be way higher (for example jewelry, boutique goods, etc.) and it's fine if the real value is also higher than for normal products, or at least on the same level.

Those two triggered my scam-detector.

Giving more value for the money may be a better strategy in the long run. It brings you closer to productocracy. People will definitely recommend your product if they got more than they paid for.

Also, people may have different goals than money. Take, for example, MJ.
His books and Insider subscription here are not that expensive. Probably he could squeeze out more profits by raising prices, even x2-x3 times. Don't know about books, but I've been on a $100/m paid forum and there's still enough value for the money and a lot of people.

But what if his goal is not all about the money. Maybe he really wants to show people what's possible, change their lives and make them Unscripted? Then current prices make much more sense, allowing his books to become best sellers.

They BUY the offer, then they RETURN the product.

If product isn't as good as advertise then ask the sellers their refund rate. ;)

"Most people are broke and remain broke because the money scam has made them perpetual chasers of something that cannot be chased - it can only be attracted by offering perceived value" - MJ in UNSCRIPTED.

Of course, if the customer deems the perceived value offered and actual value obtained don't match, he'll be sure to get his money back and tell everyone he can to stay away from your scam.

The best marketing strategy is to have people begging to refer you customers.

The economy is fuelled by bridging the gap between 'current self' and 'desired future self'.

Most things fit into this.
