Time-Stamped Show Notes: 

  • [00:28] Today’s Topic: 5 Simple Yet Effective Hacks that’ll Get Your Customers to Pay You Double the Money
  • [00:35] Hack #1: Increase your prices.
  • [01:12] Hack #2: Add upsells and downsells. The easiest way to get more money, is to get your existing buyers to pay you more; it is easier to get people who are already paying you to pay more money.
  • [01:34] For example, GoDaddy offers 10-20 upsells or downsells when you are checking out.
  • [01:52] What Eric and Neil have found, is that upsells that offer speed and automation tend to have the highest “take rate”.
  • [02:22] Hack #3: Retain your customers. Use a program like Ask Nicely, as it will help you automate communication between you and your clients.
  • [03:06] Think about how you can retain customers and provide a service for them.
  • [03:50] Hack #4: Run re-marketing ads on YouTube.
  • [04:15] Do the “opposite” sales pitch; whatever you went with before, market it using the opposite tactic.
  • [04:57] Hack #5: Use Drift or a chat box program to keep in touch with customers.
  • [05:45] That’s all for today!
  • [05:46] Eric and Neil recommend the Problem Solvers podcast, because there is an episode about Burrow, the Dollar Shave Club for couches. To listen go to singlegrain.com/solve.
