It’s a wonder you’ve managed to sell as much as you have. Your customers have got issues. They’re illogical, impulsive weirdos.
Why? Because your market demographic, no matter how “niche” you might be, is made up of the wider group of freaks we refer to as “humanity”. Crazy people.
Yet entrepreneurs continue to act as if their customers are part of some large group that can be predicted, rationalized and plotted on graphs.
Here’s a story that’ll prove to you why your customers are crazier than you realize… Continue reading “All your customers are crazy (aka psychological customer retention)”
At least, that’s title of the post I’d like to write – if only my annoying sense of morals would allow it! I got a chance to pick Seth’s brain last week and thought you’d benefit from a field report of the Q&A.
To be 101% honest, calling it a “Q&A” would be like calling a Manatee a “beautiful, graceful sea-swan”.

Want to know what it is?

The last blog article I wrote was all about identifying a target market and giving them what they want…
Even if “what they want” isn’t something you’d normally offer.

A quick way to guarantee customers keep coming back
I was walking down the main street of Sydney’s sunny Surry Hills when I spotted a business using a technique I had never seen before. This tactic was a sure-fire guarantee for bringing customers into the business, plus it also mastered customer retention.
In the process of murdering the competition (in a saturated marketplace!), these guys had developed a hugelyÂ powerful, super-low-cost technique that hinges on a simple principal even a five-year-old can understand.
