Scariest 13 fonts can get you more sales? Is this true? Yes, below you will find 13 scariest fonts that used properly can get you more sales. And yes, you will also find solutions of how to use them.
Let’s first discuss a bit about how sales take place (I have over 16 years’ experience in sales)
Sales in most industries are based on emotions. People don’t just buy because they need the latest iPhone, the largest TV in a small living room, an expensive watch which cost more than many apartments, and so on.
People buy emotionally and because they think they need something (or they convince themselves that they need that product).
I am also doing that and I really hope that you will learn something from me and this article. In the last couple of years, I bought the following items that I am keeping them brand new, never worn in my wardrobe, prepare your popcorn:
- 8 men’s costumes (including 2 Armani and other cool brands)
- 8 pair of shoes (including Balenciaga and again, other respected brands)
- 3-4 Jackets
- 3-4 ties
- There is much more but I don’t want my wife to find out everything.
Why did I buy all of these clothes, shoes, and accessories? Because I need them? If I need them, why don’t I wear them? The answer is very simple, I bought them emotionally.
How can you avoid be in my situation? There are 2 ways that work for me and it will probably work also for you.
- Buy things only when you need them. Make a list at your place, things that you want to buy in that day. Don’t buy if something is not on your list.
- Two tricks. Don’t visit shops if you don’t need, and don’t try clothes that you aren’t on your list. This is a mistake that I made many times and after I ended buying lots of things.
