Wednesday Wisdom

My Wednesday Wisdom:
Increase the price of your highest value item by 25%, or create a new item for your store that costs 150% more than anything else in your shop.

If you have a higher priced item in your store it makes your lower priced products look more attractive to buyers. This is because most people avoid the cheapest items and the most expensive ones, they like to fall somewhere in the middle.

This technique is called Price Anchoring. Even though you will probably not sell any of your highest priced items, just having it in your shop will increase the sales of your lower priced products.

Make sure that this high-priced item is very visible in your store, put it in your featured items or at least on the first page of your listings, and watch as it helps you sell more!

Play along with us and share your knowledge. Leave a link to your Wednesday Wisdom (not your whole blog, just the individual post please) below in Mister Linky.
