How to Purchase Only Quality Information Products Online!
We have become content to simply shell out our hard-earned cash in return for something we can't hold or touch.
It's not delivered to our door.
We don't sign for any packages.
Nothing! We simply hit the "Pay Now" button, and within seconds we have our purchase in our email inbox.
It really is amazing.
But of course, there are positive aspects of this exchange.
Obviously we've decided that the "pluses" outweigh the "minuses" in this game of information buying on the internet.
That's why it has become so popular.
But there still is one major issue with purchasing information products online.
It's an issue that nobody has addressed effectively, yet there has been no real public outcry about its absence.
In the "real world", we have groups like Consumer Reports to help us make smart purchasing decisions.
Before we buy a product, we turn to such groups to learn which products are the "real deal" and which are just wastes of money.
But why hasn't there been an outcry for such a group online? For now, let's learn how to spot a "quality" product from a "flop".
Before you purchase an information product or a new piece of software online...
Pay attention to reputation - If you've just heard about the latest "amazing" ebook, hot off the presses, immediately ask yourself: "Who is the author?" If you've never heard of the author, be wary of his or her expertise.
Search the author's name on Google.
Visit his or her other websites.
Is this the author's first ebook? What is the author's reputation? These are just some of the questions that you'll want to ask yourself before hitting that "Pay Now" button! 2.
Seek out the advice of peers - Visit the Forums in your particular niche.
Most forums have a section where you can seek out advice from other people who may have purchased this new ebook.
Ask them what they thought of the product.
Was it worth the money? Is it good for beginners? Just don't ask them to "summarize" the book for you.
They paid good money for the information, so you'll have to do the same to learn the in-depth details of the book.
you can even ask opinions on the author him/herself! Make use of these resources - they are invaluable.
Be wary of falling into the "hype" products - Maybe you've been itching to sign up this great new membership site because it's "all the rage".
Sometimes, info products that are "hot" are not exactly "quality".
I've purchased products based on popularity alone, only to find the markets flooded with people who purchased the same book and is using the same techniques taught by the author.
When this happens, the information inside becomes practically useless.
Of course this is not always the case, but always beware of the "hot" new product, especially if everyone seems to be promoting it! 4.
Seek out unsolicited, unbiased reviews of the product - Again, this can be extremely difficult to achieve.
There are very few resources, with the exception of a brand new service called RatingsHub, where you can find such unbiased, user-submitted reviews.
When you do find a review for a product, try to determine if the reviewer has any "interest" in reviewing the product.
If a "review" contains ANY affiliate links inside it, you can simply consider it flawed.
The reviewer may be trying to sway your opinion in order to get you to purchase the product through his or her affiliate link, therefore making them money.
Always seek out unbiased, user-submitted reviews.
If you take these simple steps before purchasing another information product, you can ensure that every purchase you make is a smart one, and that you never hit that "Pay Now" button...
only to "Regret Later"!
