Before you decide on selling anything online, you need to first determine who your customer is, what they often purchase, and why they are purchasing online.

This is called "customer comprehension". The better you understand your customer, the easier it will be to sell stuff to them. Obviously, at the core of any business, the ultimate goal is to create a profit. To create a profit, you must have customers and you must be able to sell to these customers.

One of the most common mistakes I see people make is promoting to a customer (or audience) before they fully understand who their audience is. It is very easy to waste money promoting what you "think" people want, rather than what they are actually looking for.

Don't make assumptions on your customers, gain an understanding. You will be much more successful.

Before we go any further, we need to understand the steps someone takes between the time they learn of a product or service, to the time that they actually make a purchase. That is what my goal is to help you understand.

Let's look at some it. Some known facts about a customer:

(1) Customers rarely buy on their first point of contact to a product
(2) It typically takes a person 7 times (this could be website visits, email newsletter, etc.) before they make a purchase online.
(3) Customers do not buy from people they don't trust
(4) Customers are exchanging "money" for something that will improve upon their existing situation
(5) Customers have more access to product information and reviews than they ever have
(6) Most customers can see through scammy promotions, in fact are turned off

I am going to show you how to catch people later in their buying cycle so you can increase your chances of someone "buying" versus having to walk them through all points of contact. This will simplify the selling process drastically!

Great content: especially analyzing your own buying habits. I've done the exact same thing before joining programs in the past.
Hasn't always worked mind, as most have gone down the Swanny River. such as: M.F.I., Carbon Copy Marketing and Empower Network. But it does go to show that most people do their own research before purchasing.

Knowing all these steps of Customer live style is a great capital.
I can attract your attention on two points of view without any comment:
I describe the Client the client on line as a ''Virtual Client'', comparatively to that one into a geographic grocery, who is a "Real client" and full of emotions.
This prototype of Real Client is inspiring sometimes the virtual one.

Types of products play a remarkable role in quickening the Customer' s decision to purchase, due to that a product is to be kept indoor or outdoor.
Ex. A Bed and Bike.

Clenching, what kind of product which are generated by our Key word?

You products are determined by your niche, your products then determine your keyword. That's the 'normal' order of things. Your niche should be determined by your knowledge and interests.

This question and answer is one that is yours to provide. What is your goal? What is the product or service that you are passionately trying to build a business around? From that begin your research in the keyword tool to help you construct your posts and blogs.

Is it not appearing simplistic by the academic breakdown of the stages!? Are you suggesting that the articles and content writing are aimed at gaining attention of persons who come through your website, your blogs on fb and other social media sites? It will mean that more work must be done to get the quality people who may come again to possibly buy.
More work ahead!!!

Yeah. Understanding individually the Client is obtaining the market key.
There is a want always associated to the product. It might be a product for indispensable need or for leisure.
The product scarcity attract the Client at the most.
A more known product like the newest one are carrying a intrinsic value.
So the seller has cards to play efficiently.

The Customer Purchase Lifecycle will be hard for me to learn. I feel everyone will buy what they need. And if they need it they will buy it.

But I will be following Kyle's expert advice and training. That's why he is doing the training so I can Learn and Grow.

Thanks, Kyle.

I will always use a QSR of 0 if I find one. This means no other papes to compete with of Google. At least that's my understanding.

Thank you, all for having interesting topics and conversations here. We learn and grow from others here in WA.
