Have you ever wondered what sets high converting websites apart, from those that can barely convert a lead?
It often boils down to the guarantee they make.
No matter how well-designed your website is or how persuasive your copy for each of the pages, no one is going to take the next step (whether it's making a purchase or signing up for your weekly newsletter) unless you have a guarantee that's clear, specific, and highly visible in your website.
Why Focus on Your Guarantee
First off, crafting a solid guarantee lends tangible proof that you have a reputable brand. Second, it helps reduce the perceived risk felt by prospects by reassuring them that they are about to make the right decision.
By and large, your guarantee should place the risk of the purchase from the buyer, to you, the seller. This is often referred to as risk reversal.
In an analysis of more than 25,000 anonymous sales calls by Gong, a sales SaaS platform, it was discovered that closing rates increased by 32 percent when salespeople used risk-reversal language such as the following:
- You can cancel anytime.
- There is no long-term contract involved.
- It takes less than 5 minutes to cancel.
