I keep killing indoor basil plants despite following instructions, doing research and talking to happy owners of indoor basil plants. What am I doing wrong?

Every time I go to the market, they always have those potted grown basil plants that you can take home and grow indoors. I've purchased at least 4 and every time they start dying within in a week. Everyone tells me how easily and low maintenance they are, but they still keep dying.
I put it by the window to get light, I water it every two days and it just wilts right away. Is there a trick to growing them? I have other plans that seem to thrive in my home, so I don't understand why the simplest basil plant is giving me a hard time.
