BOGO Deals: Why They Work So Well

Share the Knowledge:

In the world of promotions, there’s a strategy that consistently stands out: BOGO deals. While many businesses utilize Hownd to distribute offers without splitting revenue, one question frequently arises: “How can we enhance the appeal of our offers?” The answer often lies in the presentation and the psychology behind the offer.

While captivating visuals and a seamless purchasing process are essential, the wording of the offer plays a pivotal role. Among the myriad of deals, BOGO (Buy One, Get One) promotions have a unique charm. Let’s delve into the reasons behind the success of BOGO deals over other promotions like 50% off or half-off deals.

When presented with the following options, which one do you believe has the highest conversion rate?

  1. 50% off
  2. Half off
  3. Buy-one-get-one-free (BOGO)
  4. 2-for-1

If you picked option 3, you’d be correct. Even those all of these options offer a similar if not exactly the same product, studies show that BOGO offers perform better and get more purchases when compared to 50% off or half off offers. But why?

1. The Complexity of Math vs. The Allure of Simplicity: BOGO’s Winning Formula

In today’s fast-paced digital age, consumers are inundated with advertisements. The simplicity of BOGO deals eliminates the need for mental gymnastics. The straightforward proposition of getting an additional item for free is more appealing than calculating savings percentages.

2. The Universal Appeal of “Free”: Why BOGO Deals Shine

The word “free” has an undeniable allure. The prospect of receiving double the value for the price of one is irresistible. This psychological edge gives BOGO an advantage over offers that provide a single item at a discounted rate.

3. Time, Effort, and the BOGO Advantage: Maximizing Customer Value

Beyond the monetary aspect, customers evaluate the time and effort associated with a purchase. BOGO deals resonate because they promise double the value without additional effort. It’s a win-win, both in terms of value and convenience.

In the realm of promotions, perception is paramount. By understanding and catering to the innate desires of consumers, businesses can craft offers that resonate deeply, driving both engagement and sales.
