1. Elevate your AOV and scale your Brand with advice from Ryan McKenzie
Youtuber (and DTC legend) Ryan McKenzie is back with the tactics used by 10-figure brands to help increase your average order value (AOV) and scale your brand out of a sales slump.
One common tactic is to discount products within the customer’s cart. These discounts come in many forms like one-click sales and bundles, but there are even more creative ways to streamline the upsell process in a flash!
Shipping thresholds, price anchoring, and discount ladders are other proven strategies to increase AOV before the customer even sees the cart page.
