Next time you’re creating a marketing promotion, you may want to include one of these “magic” words that customers most love to hear:
- Guarantee. Not only does a guarantee show confidence in your products, but it also removes the risk of trying your product, giving potential customers the added persuasion to purchase your product over another.
- Instantly, immediately, or fast. We all love fast results or solutions, so it’s no surprise that people love instant gratification.
- New. Today’s society is always on the lookout for the latest and greatest products available. However, be aware that the novelty of “new” can wear off. After a while, customers often fall back to their familiar, tried-and-true products again.
- Save. Saving money is something that everyone wants to do. Whether you offer an exclusive savings promotion, a discounted package deal, or even a money-saving coupon, your customers will be listening.
- Results. The word “results” also means success. It’s a powerful word because of its inherent promise of a better outcome.
- Discover. The word “discover” offers a promise of something more to come. Like unwrapping a gift on your birthday, discoveries always bring a sense of excitement and adventure.
- Easy. People love to purchase things that are easy to figure out, easy to assemble, easy to manage, and so on. The less effort required by the customer, the better.
- Free. Although the word “free” is often overused, it continues to be the number-one attention-getting word. Use it sparingly and only when you truly have something free to offer with no strings attached, such as a free sample, free trial, free shipping, or buy-one-get-one-free deal.
