#1 thing that drives you buy?

29 replies
Is it incentives & freebies, is it you already said yes a dozen times about related topics or feeling is it the feeling of being apart of a community and feeling left out.

They're all powerful but what is the most powerful.

I am not asking because I need your help. I am curious to see others answers. From the looks so far everyone seems like they're and expert.

        If you don't want ambiguous responses, try asking a question to which the only realistic answer isn't "depends".

          let me rephrase it, please don't try to sound smart, I only want specific reasons that come to mind.

This is especially useful if somebody has a perceived deficiency, insecurity, or fear about something and you can provide them with something that will meet their need of not feeling those things. Emotions are a big part of buying decisions.

          yeah I found asking questions seems to be the best way to do that, surveys

      I was. Now I just write books and play around here.

      But...finding out what they bought before is the primary key in any offer.

      You can either start with a list of buyers, and match your offer to them...or you can try to find a list of buyers that matches your offer.

      Usually, the first option is easier.
      And then you add every technique that makes them more likely to buy.

      Or you can use PPC ads on Google that target your specific niche, but they won't be buyers. You want to make your offer to proven buyers.

      But if we knew your offer or business, it would be easier to help you.

          You've been here for 7 years, posted over 400 times and don't know anything about Claude? Honestly not trying to be rude, but do some research...if ONLY hovering over his name, you can see he's a forum veteran of 10 years with over 17,000 "thanks" on just 5000 posts. That should tell you he knows what he's talking about and well respected. 5 more mins of research will tell you what he's good at. It's like you're asking Michael Jordon how many periods are there in a soccer game.

          I'm driven to buy things I need and things I want. I'm pretty disciplined with my spending though. Give me the value of your product or service and how it can solve MY problems or improve my life. The cost of the deal is rarely the true objection, but people use money as the objection to cover the real objection.

          I don't believe freebies are really "free". Marketers are good at including "free gifts". In reality, you're paying for those gifts, but it sounds better when they say they're free. So freebies do not drive me to buy. I get to the end of the pitch and look at everything I'm getting and what my final price is and then make a decision.

    Out of the ones that you have suggested, it would more so be incentives and freebies also, related topics. For me, next to nothing to do with feeling apart of a community unless it was something I was already interested in.

    OK, you've got my curiosity. (mostly because the progression of your questions leads me to believe you have a particular agenda in mind?) So I have to ask...

    Why are you asking this question...?



    Is it for something you're selling, and you're looking for an effective way to present it?

    Or, are you simply a student of human nature, and you're wondering how a random group of people might respond to an arbitrary question?

    Or maybe you have some other reason in mind?

    (Any answer I might give you would largely depend on why you're asking the question)

    What drives me is an unshakable belief in my self that I gained through hypnosis. I am living the dream and don't want to wake up. I'm still in trance. Oh the beauty of it.

    well there is the entire question..you are not asking or i think you may not know to ask .. that only you can find the answer to..

    what is the deciding factor that makes people buy from you ..over all the options available including not buying at all.

    so it depends on you ,what your selling..who you are selling to , and why they would buy from you

    I think the most important thing that drives people into buying a product is the need. Just identify the need of the targeted market and come up with a product that can satisfy their need. Marketing will only help you find the right people who really need that product.

      I think the most important thing that drives people into buying a product is the need.
      Needs should be a higher priority than wants, but often times you can find people prioritizing WANTS above NEEDS and many businesses thrive on that psychology. Think about sugar, traveling, porn, entertainment etc. None of those are needs, but they make people a LOT of money.

    I feel appreciation for making it through another day.

    What drives me is the quest to the uncharted areas
    of the psyche which I daily explore. We are made
    of "first class material". Us humans need to keep
    walking and marvel at the idea of aiming higher.

    The reason to live is to keep learning and evolving.

    What's good for the mind if it stays stagnant?

    The greatest hurdle is sometimes facing one's self.

    If you get past that, you'll realize great possibilities
    that revolve around optimal living. Once potential is
    apprehended, you have a reason to live and stride along
    to the unwalked paths of the psyche.

    You'll realize that you're not an empty vessel anymore.

    And that's enough to propel you forward and fill you with oodles of joy.
