Sneaky Marketing Tricks Retailers Use and Why You Should Steal Them

by Shawanda Greene

It’s easy to think advertising consists exclusively of hilarious gimmicks, catchy jingles, and colorful graphics. Oh, but it’s so much more than that.

Companies spend ungodly amounts of time and money in pursuit of answers to the questions:

  • What turns a browser into a buyer?
  • How do we get customers to spend more money?
  • What can we offer to entice them to return to our store?
  • How do we shorten the decision making process for our customers?

Marketers, the sneaky little buggers, know how to make you buy, buy more, buy more often, and buy quicker.

Yeah, you’re kinda smart. But you’re no match for an industry whose sole purpose is to convince you to open your wallet and spend, spend, spend.

Below is an infographic that plainly shows the persuasive tricks companies use to make you buy.

Study this picture carefully. The information contained is vitally important to your financial success.

After reviewing it, you’ll be able to identify and avoid the traps set by creative marketers. But more importantly, you’ll learn several proven techniques that you can use to get customers to purchase more of your products and services. And as a result, you’ll make more money.
