How to Use “Price Anchors” to Make More Sales

The most popular item at any steakhouse is almost always the second-most expensive steak on the menu.

That’s because the second-most expensive steak looks like a bargain next to the most-expensive steak. 

If you want to sell more of your $1000 watches, start listing them next to a $3000 watch. 

This works because of a cognitive bias that’s built into all of us. We don’t judge prices objectively – we judge them comparatively. 

The practical application of this is pretty simple. You should have a premium option on your pricing “menu,” no matter what you’re selling.

Most people aren’t going to choose that option, but that’s fine – the entire point of including it is to make the rest of your options look like great value by comparison. 

Test it out and see what happens!
