Launching a product on Christmas is an interesting concept. People are already in a buying mood … and spending money seems just way easier … almost like it’s the right thing to do.

Revealed: Why Having an Entry-level Product Can Make Your Business

There’s an urban legend circulating around the internet about a guitar pick seller from eBay. This seller would offer bags full of guitar picks at ridiculously low prices, instead of offering picks individually one-by-one like other sellers did.

Upselling Like a BOSS – How to Pull the Trigger

Are you ready to bring a gun to a knife fight? Because, essentially, that’s what upselling is.

For some people upselling is like generating free money, others don’t believe in the whole idea that much.

What you can find there is stuff like: swimming pools, water slides, sunbeds, palm trees, the beach, the sea, water attractions, a gym, good weather, the sun, and a disco in the evenings.
