Understand This Human Behavior To Boost Sales

human behavior

What’s up ? This is THE stephane ANDRE !!! I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned some good stuff.

There is human bias that needs to get around to get your company up to the next level. What’s interesting with marketing is that it exposes human behavior. Marketing allows us to understand good and bad human behavior

Lazy

This one of the most common human misbehavior. Take the example of a registration page for online training. There are 200 prospects interested in this training who gave you their emails to know the start date.

You divide the prospects into 2 groups, group A and B. For group A (100 prospects), you ask them to write their first names and emails and click on the OK button in the form to register. For group B (100 prospects), their first names and emails are already pre-filled in the form, just check the information and click on the OK button. In group B, there will be about 10% more registration compared to group A.

Which means that in group A, there are about 10% of prospects who don’t have enough energy or motivaton to write their first names and emails in the form.

Honest

honesty

This is one of the most common good human behaviors. Take the example of a guarantee of 30 days without conditions satisfied or refunded. Technically, there are plenty of people who could benefit from this guarantee by saying : « I’ll use this product for 29 days and I’ll ask for a refund ». Of course, there are people who do that, but it’s always surprising to see that it’s a small minority. It’s something nice to see.

Psychology

Unfortunately, there are limits in honesty and it’s necessary to understand some human bias to have a good company. Otherwise your company is in jeopardy.

In a detective tv show, there is a perone who is looking for the best detective for his problem. The hero of this tv show is a detective.

The person sees the hero and says : « I did some research and you’re the best in your field ».

The tell him : « You did some research, but what exactly did you do ? ».

The person answers : « It’s simple, I went to see all your competitors, I asked them who was the best detective and they all said it was them. Then I asked them who was the best second detective after them and they said it was you, that’s why I realized you were the best ».

Did you see the human bias in this example ? When you ask a pro who is the best, he’ll answer you : « Me ! ». The pro does this because he wants to sell, he has his personal pride and maybe he really believes he’s the number 1 compared to others.

Which shows that it’s difficult to have the most objective answer possible with this question. By understanding this human bias, you can use a question that gets around that. This question is : « Okay, it’s obvious you’re the best but who’s second best after you ? ». In the majority of cases, the answer is objective.

Price

price

Let’s take another example. An entrepreneur conducts a survey with his prospects to determine the selling price of a product. The question is : « What is the price you would pay to buy this product ? ». If you ask your prospects how they want to help them, they’ll be honest but when you talk about the selling price, it become complicated. When you ask the question about the selling price, they will always tell you a lower price compared to the price they could pay.

There are 2 reasons :

  1. When a person ansers this question, she thinks : « If I tell him I’m willing to pay 100 dollars, he’ll sell it to me at $100. So, I’ll tell him $50 like that it will be cheaper ». It’s a behavior that all human beings do (me and you included).

  2. There are people who don’t know how much they would be willing to pay because they can’t see the product. When they see the product and see what it can improve in their life, they’ll decide whether to buy it or not.

To solve the problem of the 1st reason, ask the question this way : « As you’re one of the people who helped me to create this product, you’ll have a special price, but what do you think the price is that the rest of the world should pay ? ». With this question, the prospect knows that he is going to have a special price so he can give a more objective answer.

To solve the problem of the 2nd reason, there is only one way. It’s showing the product to prospects.

When you do a survey to prospects for the sale price, it’s very important that prospects understand that they’re going to have a special price. Ask the questions : « What price would you pay to buy this product ? » and «  As you’re one of the people who helped me to create this product, you’ll have a special price. But what do you think the price is that the rest of the world should pay ». You will be surprised by the different answers you will have. Test it !

Obviously, it’s not only with this question that you will determine your selling price, it will be just a clue. It’s very useful to understand human psychology otherwise you risk choosing a selling price really too low that should be and earn really less money.

Success

success key

Let’s talk about success. You know the success definition is different for everyone. There are people who want to earn lots of money and others who want to create a happy family.

I noticed that people motivated by money or girls, once they have a lot of experience or They’re more mature have a different success definition. « Big Guys » of my neighborhood that made me dream with beautiful cars and beautiful girls, advice me to work on my legacy and work on my legacy right now ! They tell me all that money and girls, it come, it goes, but it’s a legacy that still exists after death.

money

I have professional athletes friends who tell me they don’t chase the money, they stopped it for years, they moved on. Make a living with a sport is very hard, harder than you think. Many people said to them to arrest because they never gain enough money but they managed and their success definition is to make a living with their passion, their passion is their profession.

To be successful, you have to work when people aren’t watching you, working in the moments when no one knows. You work when everybody don’t care, « What does a champion when he’s alone ? ». The famous boxer Joe Frazier said : « Champion are not made in the ring, they are merely recognized there ».

family

You’re not going to train just because you had a bad day and you want to destress. You’re going to train because you love it. Life is like legs day. Most people go to the gym and don’t train legs, result, they have a physical shit ! Do legs day, do squat ! For me it’s a good test to know who enjoys working out and who show off for the summer.

You know it will hurt, you know that 2 days after you will have pain in legs. In life it’s the same thing. You will have your tests and you will must fight to succeed and this is not necessarily at the first time. Struggle when you’re at the lowest point, struggle when nobody knows it because there is only you who can take care of your life. No matter whether in your studies, work or girls, you have to reach your goal with positivity and pride.

legacy

Time in life is very limited, very precious. That’s why when you will be old, you will can say : « I earned this marble that makes this house, I earned it. I left my mark on this planet and my future generations will see it ! ». That’s your job and if you want to achieve a high level of success, make a statue of you !
