Want to boost sales? Engage impulsive customers and win more business. Get tips and tools to help you attract them and make it easy for them to buy from you.
What are impulsive customers like?
Impulsive customers can make a buying decision in an instant, provided that the conditions are right. They like to be correct; and feel their point of view is the one that matters. They don't need much convincing to make a purchase and don't require a relationship or sales pitch to buy if they believe the offer is good for them.
What they require is a clear and easy way to make a purchase, and quick and concise help, should they ever have the need to contact you.
