BUSINESS BUILDING INSIGHTS
Make it easy for customers to find what they want or they will get overwhelmed and go somewhere else.
Everything about your business should be relatable to your ideal customers right down to your logos, colors, and fonts.
Build positive experiences for your customers. Surprise and Delight moments can erase bad experiences.
Extend beyond that negative point so that at the end people are happier with their overall experience with you even if something that was a little bit bad happened.
How To Get Customers To Buy
Guide people to go in the right direction in the way you present information. It's called 'choice architecture.'
Choice is all about context. And the way it is presented makes a difference.
How you present something should be worded or framed in a way that resonates with your specific ideal customers.
The subconscious brain is very literal and will take big font equals big price. That goes together with small font equals small price.
Keep product titles simple and clear. If you use adjectives, keep it short and snappy.
Use images that demonstrate experiences in product descriptions and promotions so people can imagine how it will feel.
Think about what you want buyers to feel and use words that convey that feeling in your descriptions. <-- Pro tip! Watch Food Network shows and listen to how they describe a dish when they try it for great examples of how to do this.
99% of anything our brains do is done on a subconscious level. When you do videos or post images showcasing your products, share the sensory emotions you experience to activate a mirror experience in the brains of your viewers. <-- Listen in for exactly how this works!
