Improve Your Website - Sell what Your Buyers Really Want...

  1. 1. How to Improve a WebsiteSell What Buyers Really Want!What does a buyer want when they buy something?It sounds like a stupid question - at first...Youll make more money from your website traffic if you sell them whatthey really want!Why do some people spend hundreds of thousands on a car, when you can getone for a fraction of that money?Both will get you from A to B.Both will exceed the speed limit.Both perform the functions that we require of a car.The truth is, buyers are often motivated by something other than a rationalapproach.Often, our emotions play a bigger part in our purchases than we might like toadmit...Someone who spends a small fortune on a high-end automobile is not only buying a car.They want the rest of the world to view them as a success. They want respect.They may justify their purchase by droning on about comfort and precision engineering.But any mid-priced car would give you that too.They are buying something more than the features – they feel that there are otherbenefits to spending a small fortune.Benefits vs FeaturesFeatures are the actual physical attributes of a product.Benefits are what those features actually do for the buyer.If you were selling a car, a feature might be its electronic fuel management system.The benefit of that to the buyer would be spending less on fuel - i.e. Saving Money.A lawnmower may have "Tempered Steel Blades" - the benefit of that would be "lessmowing, more time relaxing..."Buyers often do not see the point of a feature. So by highlighting the benefit, youhighlight whats in it for them.A technically-minded buyer might understand what a fuel management system does. Foreveryone else, simply stating the benefit explains why we might want it too.
