The Buy More Effect

Understand Your Buyer > How To Convert > The Buy More Effect

What is it?

You can encourage buyers to buy more by rewarding them for the more that they spend.

Why does it work?

It works for a number of reasons. Firstly, because we love to get a good deal when we buy things and if we buy more we get more which is attractive. Secondly it’s a variation of the In for a Penny Effect where once we have decided to buy it’s easier to decide to buy more – especially as it’s being rewarded.



How can you use it?

Depending on your offering, think about how you could incentivise buyers to buy more – would it be to give them money off, extra points or extra “stuff”. Create a reward for buying more, set the parameters of how much “more” is and experiment.
