[browsershot url="http://www.getelastic.com/the-psychology-of-percentages/" width="150px"]

Which sale headline is more effective in attracting customers: “25%-50% Off” or “Up to 50% Off?” According to the market research of Dr. Flint McGlaughlin of Marketing Experiments, using the language of “Up to…” is more effective in attracting customers than using a range. The reason seems to be that customers focus on the lower number making the offer appear less appealing. Additionally, using the wording “From $50” is more attractive to customers than “$50-$100.” Using market research when crafting sales offers can assist marketers in crafting more effective advertising campaigns.

Just what is a “niche” and how does one choose one? A niche is a distinct segment of a market. Figuring out which niche to target allows marketers to narrow focus on a particular group of customers and their preferences and buying habits. Choosing a niche can mean the difference between success and failure in e-commerce. Choosing products in a niche you love and know something about helps to make the work more interesting for the sellers. When an online seller is knowledgeable about the products, it is easier to convey authority, a crucial element of online success. Do some market research. Is there demand for the products and who typically buy them?
