The pros know that getting sales is much more than just driving traffic to a site. There’s more to be done. After knowing what to do getting sales will be a simple task.
Most of us know how to get visits to our affiliate pages and/or websites. But what then? How many leave without buying? Have a look at your visitor vs. sales ratio. Even if you have sales, it can be multiplied to much more.
Really, why are they not buying? The answer isn’t in what you are selling or the price isn’t right. People will gladly pay top dollar for what they want. They simply need to want it. You can help them with that. Read on….
It is your job to help them want it. It’s instict to give a description of the product or service you’re selling. Let’s build on that a little….. While you are describing your product or service, you should be drawing your customer in. Getting them to want your product. There’s several ways to do this.
My favorite is the “don’t follow the herd”. Quite simply this is showing the customer that they are smart enough to act on the oppurtunity that is right in front of them, while the rest of the “herd” just can’t see it. They will buy from you because they don’t want to be that other guy in the herd.
Moving along you see for example, you’re not that other guy in the herd. You’re actually taking a few minutes here to improve your conversion rate. Did you catch that? Glad you’re with me here.
Another way is the “preview”. Have you seen a preview and when you go see the movie, the entire movie could’ve been wrapped up in just the preview? It’s like you knew what the entire movie was about all the way to the end! Why do they do that? Well, you went to see the movie that’s why.
Contradictory to the preview is the “there’s always more” method. Giving an enticing “sample” but not giving it all away. People like to believe there’s always more. This method is highly effective when you have a product or service with many features. Simply highlight the strong points with the notion that there’s more.
As far as whether to use a full preview or there’s always more really depends on what you are selling. Just take a good look at it and decide what’s best. Should we tell them all about it or wet thier tongues getting them to want more. The product will tell you.
Finally, get them to say yes, yes, yes. Throughout your sales copy, email ad, website or where ever you are presenting your product or service. Get them to say yes. Using quick questions like “right?” “doesn’t that make sense?” and “wouldn’t you like that?” for example will have them saying yes all through your message. And by the time you ask “are you ready to buy?” the answer is already YES!
Simply getting prospects by the boatload is short of the goldmine. Talk to your customers. They want to buy. You can help them want to buy.
