that it is free. This is important because you want repparttar person to place value on your bonus. (You'll notice that in allrepparttar 117322 bonus ebooks that I've given through these articles that I first tell yourepparttar 117323 value of them -and even go out of my way to proverepparttar 117324 value sometimes.) 4. Authority - People will listen to you if they see that you have authority on your subject. There was a TV commercial that used this line - "My son-in-law recommended that I take _____ for my heartburn. Why should I listen to him you say? He's a doctor". You may think that you do not have authority on what you are advertising. In this case appeal to authority figures - quote from a respected journal, expert ... you getrepparttar 117325 idea. 5. Commitment - If someone has made a PUBLIC commitment to something then they are more likely to follow through. Find some way of getting someone to make a commitment and h or she's more likely to follow through than if they did not That's why any motivational trainer would tell you that it' important to WRITE your goals down -you are more likely to complete them! Just today I received a sales letter inrepparttar 117326 mail for which I had to send for free information. My physical act o commitment was to peel a nice red label marked "free" and place it in a designated spot onrepparttar 117327 mail back card. Now yo know why they make you do this little silly stuff. Only if weddings workedrepparttar 117328 same way! 6. Your 'likability' - People would respond to your offer if they like you. It's hard to sell to someone to whom you have no relationship even if it's just a 'perceived' relationship. This is one ofrepparttar 117329 most overlooked areas of marketing onrepparttar 117330 Internet. The Internet can seem a little cold sometimes. I've found that even after making email contact with my prospect I still have to make voice contact before they sign up for my offers. Atrepparttar 117331 same timerepparttar 117332 Internet is a wonderful tool t build relationships through emails, message boards, instant messages ...repparttar 117333 list goes on. It's a known fact that someone would buy from you if THEY think that YOU like them. Give people value, more than they expect and you have a customer for life! 7. The eternal "what's in it for me?" principle - As your prospect read your ad this isrepparttar 117334 question they are seeking an answer to. Make sure that you give them plenty of answers. Appeal to their desire for recognition, wealth, better health, and security -yes all those nice things on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs - allrepparttar 117335 way up to self-actualization. (Check out a Psychology 101 text book if you are not familiar with Maslow -you will glad you did.) But do not forget to appeal to their FEAR of pain and loss. Field research has shown that people are more responsive to loss than gain. Be sure to show them what they would LOSE if they don't get your product. Read through your ads again and see if these buttons are pressed!
