So, you have signed up, taken the bait. And Thinkstock is in full swing to get you to switch.
In our previous post, I showed 'call log and transcript' of Thinkstock Rep's phone messages in the blog titled - Thinkstock Coupon - Save 67% with $99 for 750 Images. The Hard Sell - Case Study Part4. In this post we will look at the 'scare' tactic continuation of Thinkstock via email.
Email below shows the 'scare' Your Subscription is in danger of being suspended
Remember you have invested time and money with Thinkstock and are more likely to upgrade then to simply cancel.
And what's the 'Switch'?
You can end up with something like this.
Instead of $99,
you could possibly switch to $1,332/year subscription.
With a limit of 100 images/month.
ofcourse, you will be offered other packages like 50 limit download etc but the point is you have taken the 'bait' and any 'switch' is going to cost you a whole lot more.
