Weird Trend: Negative Words in Product and eCourse Titles

questionI’ve had a few requests to review products and ecourses lately, and while I was looking for similar products available on marketplaces like Clickbank and JVzoo to compare them against I noticed an odd trend that seems to be recent; negative words being used in titles for ebooks, ecourses, and info products in general, even software products.

I’ll be honest, I just don’t get it.

When I see words like annihilation, jacker, slaughter, and massacre, I expect them to be part of the most recent horror movie description or part of the plot for a mystery of some kind, not a social media plugin or some other widget I can use for my online business.

I’m not saying everything needs to be roses and sunshine, but these titles are an immediate turnoff for me. The logical part of my brain says “stay away from this” and “sounds like trouble waiting to happen.”

Have you seen this happening? What are your thoughts on these kind of titles?

Have You Been to PLR One Stop?

I want to introduce you to PLR One Stop with a little more information. It’s a fairly new PLR site where you can get great content, but it has a unique little twist.

They are taking sign ups for independent freelance writers. You write and submit your content packages, you set the price they’re to be sold for, and PLR One Stop does all the site management and promotion, that way everyone can concentrate on what they’re best at.

You can also be an affiliate. And the really good news is that you can be both a writer and an affiliate. You can submit article packages that you’ve written and promote them with your affiliate link, and you’ll get paid both ways.

That currently breaks down like this:
Writer: 45% of the sale
Affiliate: 50% of the sale
PLR One Stop: 5% of the sale

My recently released Herb Gardening PLR package was my first package submitted over there and the process was super simple. Reba (the site’s owner) is wonderful to work with and gives you a handy little checklist of things to include when you send over your content package.

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, hop over there this weekend and have a look around. I think you’ll enjoy what you find :)
