I woke up early this morning – especially considering that I’m on west coast time.
I shouldn’t haven’t opened my email. I should have done what I set out to do – drink some water and go back to bed.
But I did check my email and in my ‘too early’ state of mind I got sucked in by an email offering a graphics pack. The sales page made the set look amazing and I thought, ‘Why not?’. I can always use more cool graphics.
So I give them some money. ($18)
Then the OTO (one time offer) looked pretty cool too – PLR rights to sell the package and YES – I could add it to my paid membership site. So I take the OTO and give them more money. ($47)
Now comes the ‘I feel dumb’ part.
The PLR package turns out to be crap. I don’t receive the graphics to deliver to my customers, I have to sell the package then send my customer their funnel to claim their purchase. Bull crap. Not happening.
So I send a refund request on that right away.
Then I dig into the graphics themselves.
I’ve bought graphics packs before – lots of them. I’ve never seen one delivered in such a pain in the butt way. Every little graphic in it’s own folder – almost impossible to simply browse for what I want. I have to click and open every
I’m never gonna use this stuff, it’s just too difficult to find anything.
I’m not going to request a refund on the package itself. I’ll accept the $18 spent as my personal ’stupid tax’ and hope it teaches me not to check out email offers at the crack of dawn while traveling.
Yep, I’m Admitting I’m Dumb Sometimes
We all are!
Sales pages are powerful things. They make the product look fantastic and easy to use…
I admit it to you today because I know if you’ve been around the ‘make money online’ world for very long, you’ve probably paid some stupid tax of your own and I want you to know you’re not alone.
