I remember when my wife and I went to a timeshare presentation to get the free gifts. A couple of marketing ploys I remember:
- They place a sales representative beside each couple during the video to prevent dissenting opinion.
- The use a complex point system to book hotels. This is designed to prevent the buyer from understanding exactly what they are purchasing.
- Of course they use high pressure sales tricks. Such creating an artificial urgency to buy today and today only.
- Also, the gifts were disappointing. Not that I should be surprised but the camera was pretty much garbage. We did not use the hotel before it expired.
