135: Price Anchoring with Sean Doyle (Part 1)

When implementing price anchoring, most people are used to counting from 1 to 3. However this is the biggest mistake. The idea of anchoring is to anchor on the big number, so you need to present the big number first.

Pivotal Moments

·       The difference between early stages of marketing to when trying to scale 50 people plus.

·       Price Anchoring

·       Authenticity
