Growth Hack # 2 – Earn Customer Reciprocity in 3 Steps:
The most effective way of earning reciprocity from customers is through indirect requests. AVOID overtly salesy language.
Here are the 3 separate steps, along with the language to use, that will get customers to respond to your calls to action:
1. Give: “Free offer”, “free service”, “surprisingly good”, “no strings attached”.
2. WAIT: Create a distinction/separation of Give step from Ask step by taking a step back. If you’re too aggressive or quick with your follow-up, you’ll lose your audience.
3. Ask: “Sign up”, “purchase”, “refer your friends”.

5. These emails recovered 11.5% of abandoners
