I have already seen it on at least three major releases during the past days, and I think that this is an Internet marketing technique that we will be experiencing more and more in the weeks or months ahead.
You might not know what I am talking about, maybe you haven’t seen anything different. I am a little annoyed at this new development, and I really do hope that not too many people will be using it, even though I understand that it can really make a difference when it comes to sales.
Still don’t know what I am talking about?
Well, I haven’t actually revealed anything, have I?
I will give you two examples:
If you visit the latest from Ewen Chia, his Super Affiliates Inner Circle Marketing Club and then visit the latest from Joel Comm, his Secret Classroom. Now, try to leave the sites.
Do you see what is happening? A new window opens up, well, actually two new windows opens up. Both Ewen and Joel are trying to make you stay at their sites, and they are doing it by opening up windows where you can chat with a sales agent just when you are about to leave.
This sales agent will offer you a huge discount and a one time offer, at least that’s what the messages are saying. I haven’t stayed to actually chat with any of them.
This is an annoying feature, but I understand why they are using it. My guess is that they will make a lot more sales by implementing this technique.
