Unlocking the Power of Incentive: Three keys to mastering perceived value differential

(This article was originally published in the MarketingExperiments email newsletter.)

The use of incentives is one of the most effective ways to counter friction and anxiety, therefore it can have a significant impact on conversion. But if you are currently using an incentive and it’s not having a major impact, you’re probably not using the right one — or your presentation is lacking.

In this video replay, Flint McGlaughlin not only gives messaging strategies for presenting incentives but also explains how you can identify the best incentive for your offer by using the MECLABS Perceived Value Differential Heuristic. He explains how to apply it with step-by-step instructions and examples.

PVD = Vp — C$n

“PVD” = Perceived Value Differential

“Vp” = Perceived Value of incentive

“C$n” = Net delivered Cost of incentive

Watch the video to learn how you can combine customer psychology with the power of PVD, rigorous testing and a smart set of hypotheses around incentives to maximize response rates, generate more leads and increase sales.
