1. Reciprocity: Understand the power of giving first. When you do something for someone, they naturally want to return the favor.
2. Commitment and Consistency: People like to remain consistent with their past actions and decisions. If you can get a small commitment, it paves the way for larger commitments in the future.
3. Social Proof: We look to others to determine how to behave. Highlighting how others are already choosing or behaving can influence decisions.
4. Liking: We're more likely to be influenced by people we like. Find commonalities, provide genuine compliments, and build real relationships.
5. Authority: Establishing credibility can be influential. People tend to follow the lead of experts. Show your expertise in a genuine manner.
6. Scarcity: People value things more if they perceive them to be scarce. Highlighting uniqueness or limited availability can be influential.
