Bet you're wondering what this one is, huh? Well, CCL in this particular instance stands for Could Care Less. And this tactic is one heck of a doozie! Take The Rich Jerk for example. This is a classic case of CCL. On his sales page he tells you that he's better than you are. He's rich and you aren't. Basically, he's a winner and you are a loser. But, for a small fee, he's willing to share his techniques with you so you can become a winner too. Aww, how nice of him! Don't you just feel better already?
He doesn't stop there though, because after you buy his "better than thou" strategy guide, and if you have any questions, HE WON'T ANSWER YOU. Or worse, he'll be a jerk. Hey. He gave you "fair warning" in advance though didn't he? He told you he was a jerk! Ahh. Role playing at it's finest. The world truly is but a stage. The point here is that he's made millions by not caring. He doesn't care whether you buy his product or not because he knows that someone else will step in to take your place. It worked. He still made the money, and he also created a HUGE buzz about his CCL tactic too. Heck, he's even got his own "infomercial" now! You can do the same thing. You don't have to be that extreme if you don't want to. Why not try easing into this little trick by letting your customers know that if they decide not to buy your product, then it will be their loss and not yours. Hey, you've already got unlimited access to it, so it's no skin off your nose. This "jerky" tactic works so well in fact that there are dozens of "spin-off" products springing up every single day. You don't have to be a total jerk, but acting like you don't give a damn whether someone buys your product or not can pay off for you.
