One of the ways that marketers like to attract potential customers to their product is to write up a really touching story of someone. A story of rags to riches. A stay home mom. A college student. A homeless man. A senior citizen who never learnt how to use the computer. A school dropout..... All these stories touch our hearts and make us wish that we too would be able to enjoy this fairy tale story with a happily ever after ending.
In truth, people are actually hired to write these amazing stories for the sole purposes of attracting potential buyers. These stories may be true, a combination of several stories, or entirely fictional. But what these copywriters are skilled in is taking a normal story and adding such a flavor to it that makes us think that buying that product is the only way to make money. In fact, these stories are often too good to be true, although all the small little details are inside to trick us into thinking that it really happened.
Pictures and photographs of the luxurious lifestyle associated with that money making product are also thrown into the sales pages, peppering the amazing story with tantalizing visuals. This only serves to deceive us as readers into thinking that it is real visual evidence. Very often, these internet marketing gurus are the best in their fields, and their cars and homes and holidays are the results of many softwares working for them, not just this particular software that they are selling to you.
Better still, is the paypal snapshot. Wow those look just so impressive. If only we could have those amounts entering our on pockets too! However, creating a paypal snapshot is not that difficult after all. It is not uncommon for those in charge of marketing to create the snapshots from scratch for using other means that are not honest.
