Scarcity Economics

“Scarcity economics” is a fancy way to say “lots of people want your stuff, and there’s not enough to go around.”

How can I use scarcity for my ecommerce brand?

If you’ve ever experienced fear of missing out, you’ve been a victim of scarcity economics. Scarcity’s one of the most powerful triggers for increasing conversions, and it’s built into our psychology – so it’s not going away any time soon. Adding product badges, banners, or widgets that indicate limited stock, current demand, and limited-time promotions can do wonders for boosting your conversions.
