What to buy?
Is something crucial that we forget to ask ourselves. It always happens for less obvious products that we don’t tend to put in too much thought such as recreation activities:
- Where do we go for vacation?
- What type of hobby should I start?
- What type of pet?
- What type of clothes to buy?
- What’s best diet plan?
There is a simple “magic bullet” to solve this problem just list out the objectives you want to achieve from the purchase first and then consider each product against each objective. If the product is able to achieve all or most of the objectives you set out then this is the most suitable product.
For example – deciding on a type of vacation:
- On a budget
- Lose weight on vacation
- Travelling to new places
- Not too cold – get a tan!
- Kids should enjoy it too
Several options might be available for you – hiking in one of the southern states or even Mexico might be the most suitable type of vacation that fits all the criteria. You can apply the same process for any other type of purchase that your making – just think it through before committing to anything – then rinse and repeat.
It is now best to create a little purchase strategy or template that you can use to compare alternative purchase options. You can use the following “AwesomeBuyz buying guide template” to decide what best suits your needs and wants.
