As you may have noticed, many of these questions are based around what you can do to improve the lives of your customers.
We are not just being altruistic. Whether we realize or not, the real basis behind all financial transactions is the customers belief that the product will make him happier. No one makes a purchase unless he or she believes it will improve her life (at least for a few minutes). By understanding this, we can use this mindset to become more in touch with what our customers are most likely to spend money on.
Give these questions a try. They might revolutionize the direction your money making efforts take.
