LEVERAGE THE POWER OF EMOTIONS

blog

The key to marketing success is to make customers feel a certain way. We all like to think that we make decisions rationally, but in truth, it is our emotions that drive us to make decisions.

This important principle (CREATING AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE) must be used in your website content if you want to persuade people to buy from you.

When you are preparing your content, you need to take human emotions into account.  So you have to work out how you can provoke a specific emotional reaction. Then show the potential customer the void in their life that your solution can fill. Show them the areas of their life where they are dissatisfied or at risk or in need.

SUMMARY
