What to Consider When Buying portable humidifiers

It's not always easy to choose a portable humidifiers from thousands of options on the market. You must find one that suits your needs and offers you value for money. So how do you do it? Therefore, we need to consider these factors before buying portable humidifiers:

  • Price: Online purchase has been renowned for offering items at the best possible prices. As such places have networks with many dealers and manufacturers, sellers offer the best deals. Moreover, there are no intermediaries, which lessens the additional costs.
  • Product Quality: High-quality products may be more expensive, but they offer far more value over the long term. Your customers will recognize that value and want to keep them as customers for years to come.
  • Comparability: You can easily compare the same product on many websites at once, just by sitting at home. Then, by seeing the ratings, you can evaluate which product to go for by yourself. Thus, you can gain access to better quality than traditional shopping.
  • Affordability: In most cases, the primary factor influencing a buying decision is economical. Every buyer scrolls through his pocket to see if he actually can afford that thing to buy. Affordability is the basis of a purchasing decision. The wisdom behind this being you cannot purchase what you cannot afford.

Important things to remember while shopping online for portable humidifiers?

Here are some important things that you can consider to save money and the best possible right portable humidifiers:

1. Availability of Free Shipping

Free shipping mostly depends on the total amount of your purchase. Even if the amount does not match the minimum required amount, there will always be some seller ready to ship it cheaply. You may also consider contacting the seller to ask if they can use a cheaper courier, or you may buy a shipping label and send it to the seller to be used while shipping.

2. Coupons or Vouchers

Check if your account has some coupon or voucher the company provides. Sometimes there is a seller promotion; check if the seller has mentioned a discount code in his listing.

NOTE: Also, while using coupon, ensure you properly enter the code on checkout, see discounted price, and then only pay.

3. Look for offers like Buy 2 Get 1 Free

Well, not for all items, but you get such offers for most products now and then.

4. Review on Item and Seller Feedback

Make sure you not only check the customer reviews about the item but also check the feedback that which seller has received. This tells you much about the seller's behavior, helpfulness, and how much % hope you have to get the genuine product.

5. Check for Return and Refund Policy

Check if the seller or site offers a refund, or return policy, and go through the exact T&C to ensure you know all about the policy.

Reasons Why Customers Buy portable humidifiers

So what do we mean by why customers buy portable humidifiers? Think about it; there has to be a reason, right? Why would someone spend their money for no good reason?

Well, a handful of motivating factors lead people to make purchases. While it’s hard to pin down specifics, there are general motivations to follow.

1. Because They Want It/Pride

This is probably the simplest reason. People will buy a portable humidifiers because they want it. Depending on what they buy, they may even want to show it off. Brand recognition will come in handy in this case.

2. Protection/Fear

This may seem like two very different things, but they have the same base motivation. The motivation is to protect themselves from something bad happening.

Fear of danger can be a powerful motivator to purchase certain portable humidifiers. People will buy locks to protect themselves from outside danger. This is an immediate solution to the fear of something happening.

People will buy something protective for the future cause of loss, like house insurance. They bought the insurance in case something happens that causes them to lose their house. Or, in a smaller example, a phone case protects the phone from being broken so easily.

If your product makes them feel safer in any form, then they may push the Buy Button.

An example of what customers want to buy: 5 cell phone cases overlapping one another: one has a green forest, the 2nd is a sunset over a forest, the 3rd is a black pug on a bright blue background, 4th is a purple and pink sunset over a lake, and the last is a cityscape in black and white

3. Ease of Daily Life

Everyone wants life to be as easy as possible, and who can blame them? Products like washing machines are popular because they make the everyday act of laundry smoother. If your product can help a customer, highlight it when marketing it.

4. Impulse

Let’s talk about impulse buying. We’re all guilty of it at one point or another. When we impulse buy, it’s usually a product that’ll make buyers happier. Impulse buys are done without much thought; customers are caught up in the moment.

Products that are fun, brightly colored, or make customers laugh are great for impulse purchases. If this sounds like one of your products, highlight these aspects.

Social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest are great for finding impulse buyers.

5. Fear of Missing Out

This can be tied to impulse buying but focuses more on popular trends. When there is a wildly popular trend, people tend to buy from that trend because they don’t want to be left out. They’ll buy to prove that they’re part of the group and show off their purchase. There’s nothing wrong with jumping on the trend train and marketing your products.

6. Health/Aspiration

Personal well-being is probably the most important thing to people. If a product guarantees that it will help people live longer and healthier, people will buy it. This can also include any form of self-improvement and ways for people to better themselves.

7. Did Other Customers Like It?

If a buyer is unsure whether or not they should buy something, they’ll look at reviews. If the reviews are overwhelmingly positive, it might be the push they need to make the purchase.

This is why you have to encourage your customers to leave reviews. Offer them a discount as a way to entice them to do so.

8. Limited Editions

People love buying things that are limited edition or part of a flash sale. It can make them feel like they have something special that few people have.

If a product seems popular but not selling, try having a flash sale. Use a countdown clock to show your customers they only have so much time to buy this product.
