Brainy Snack 🧠
Your buyers have a favorite word.
It’s their name.
The Cocktail Party Effect is your buyer’s ability to hear their name amongst all the noise of a crowded room.
And it works online too.
Adding your buyers’ names to your subject lines increases open rates and click-through rates.
It even decreases unsubscribe rates.
Brainy principle used: Names
UGC ads are high converters because they’re full of social proof.
But most brands need help to get high-quality UGC at scale, with full content copyrights, to use across all marketing channels.
Enter Insense – the all-in-one UGC + influencer marketing platform for DTC brands and agencies.
“We’ve been able to source quite a lot of great creators that fit our creator avatar from Insense, and the turnaround time for the content has been a week or less. Also, the fact I can whitelist content with a few clicks is key.”

Brainy Breakdown 🤓
There’s momentum after the sale.
Don’t lose it.
Your buyers are experiencing Action Bias at the moment right after they purchase a product or opt-in.
They’re riding the high of taking an action that solves their problem. And they want to do it again.
Nathan Barry points out how Ben Meer does this with 3 offers on his newsletter Thank You page.
Add complimentary products to your Thank You pages to reach buyers when they’re most experiencing Action Bias.
