I want to share how the marketeers get you to buy stuff Case and point: Pepsi Throwback They had a few of these out at the store. I like them and prefer them. They pulled them all! Can't get them anywhere. DEMAND soars. Then they flood the market with them and advertise blitz them 24/7. This fake supply trick is how some of the best marketeers sell their product. Now, the funny thing is that a lot of these guys, let me say a lot of guys will go to a good marketeer and beg for product. But, when someone (like myself) offers them something of real value: they get angry. Why? Because the marketeer packages his product as "no risk" whereas anything of real opportunity has risk. An example would be a vendor who offers a "free trading system" but you have to deposit $500 into a no-name broker. This is a RISK and a big hassle. You are expected to trade the system. This is a COST and a RISK. However, if you go to these same individuals and ask them to buy the system for $200 they would balk. The average person is easily manipulated. I'm not beyond it either. But, I recognize how the manipulation occurs. I wrote about on this my blog: People are attracted to bargains but eschew opportunities. http://themarketpredictor.com/Details/2010/12/10/Opportunity I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't what that snake oil, Rubert Murdock was doing. He pulls the tabloid. Demand soars. He claims to take the high road and shortly thereafter releases a new one.
