What would you do if someone handed you the keys to a Ferrari and told you that the car is yours? Well, I would probably drive it off it as quickly as possible before that person changed their mind, and I bet you would too.


Now, replace your tech-savvy self with someone who lives in a cave and has never even seen a bicycle before, let alone a sports car. I bet that the cave dweller would not even touch the Ferrari.

 


The example above may be extreme but my point is this: Even if your product is valuable and offers huge benefits to your target market, it may still be difficult to get your potential customers to try or buy it if they cannot perceive the value of your product.





1. Be super user-friendly

2. Insert elements of familiarity




Concerned that our platform might be perceived as alien, we mirrored exactly what happens in real life, including nitty-gritty details and terminology.




3. Develop personal relationships with your users


We also invested a lot of time and effort on building personal human relationships with our users to humanize the cold platform.


4. Partner up with big boys
