Making Money Online When The Prospect Names His Own Price

Making Money Online When The Prospect Names His Own Price

I’m a​ plain man when it​ comes to​ making money online; I just do what I do and try to​ make an​ honest buck wherever I can without upsetting anyone.

Now and again though fate steps in​ and sends you a​ prospect where you have to​ figure out for yourself where he or​ she is​ coming from and where in​ fact they think they’re heading.

I got one such prospect a​ few weeks ago in​ the​ shape of​ Rocco,​ a​ gentle giant from Brooklyn.

How do I know Rocco is​ a​ giant?

He emailed a​ picture of​ himself towering over his significant other and some friends.

How do I know he’s gentle?

Read on…

Rocco emailed me expressing interest in​ three of​ my products but he didn’t want them in​ digital format (which would have cost him $107 in​ total) he wanted hard copy.

I suggested CD formatting.

He got back to​ me saying,​ “No,​ I don’t want CDs,​ I want hard copy. I’ll pay a​ grand”

So now I thought,​ loony tunes,​ but I emailed Rocco back intimating that if​ he deposited $200 in​ my PayPal account I’d give him what he wanted; hard copy on​ all three products

I reckoned I would hear no more but the​ following morning on​ checking my PayPal account I discovered to​ my astonishment that one thousand dollars had been deposited.

I can’t take this man’s money I protested and I told him so.

Rocco got back to​ me within the​ hour.

His brusque message read,​ “I said a​ grand,​ I meant a​ grand,​ so take a​ grand”.

So I took Rocco’s grand.

Wouldn’t you?

I mean who wants to​ be emailed to​ death…

The moral:

Never assume you know better than prospects – or​ what they are prepared to​ pay – and why. Maybe Rocco has a​ sight problem beyond my ken or​ maybe he finds it​ difficult to​ read from a​ computer screen. I will never know for sure but this I do know. Rocco is​ delighted with the​ hard copy he craved.

He told me so… in​ yet another email.
