If you want to sell tons of pizza, fight off competitors, and gain market share, your pizza menus must be more than a boring list of items and prices – they must be advertisements designed to sell!
But what if you aren’t sure what makes a great pizza menu or flyer? Don’t worry. All it takes are a few great pictures and simple, targeted messages that focus on the benefits to the consumer.
For example, if you were considering buying a pizza, how would you rate the following “sell words” on a scale of 1-10 (ten being best)? Ask yourself how each words make you feel about buying pizza.
If you are like most pizza consumers, you probably rated all of those words/phrases between an 8 and 10 (depending on your demographic-based preferences). Guess what? All of those words are used by pizza chains to drive sales and increase “impulse buys” by the consumer.
But there is one words that stand out more than any other – even the word “Free” doesn’t compete. Can you guess what it is? (Keep reading and thinking about it, I’ll reveal it at the end of the article)
One of the most powerful words you can use is “new” b ecause people naturally gravitate towards learning about new trends, new technologies, new happenings, and new products. In fact, people are so interested in what’s new that international pizza chains seem to be introducing a “new pizza” every week? Think about it: New Square Pizza, New XL-Sized Pizza, New $10 Pizzas, New & Improved Pizza Recipe…and the list goes on. It doesn’t matter how they “make it new” as long as they can associate the keyword “new” with the product. Eventually, the “newness” wears off and consumers look for the next craze – and the process begins again.
Ok, now for the reason you’re here…
