Not many people think about the psychology that goes into purchasing a product or service. Studies have shown that price isn’t the most important factor – trust is. When we spend our money, we want to know about quality and reliability, and we need to trust the company we are buying from. The reason why big brands are so successful is because they spend a lot of advertising dollars to show consumers why their company is the best and prove that they can be trusted.
In the home security industry, trust is even more important. Most people don’t think about home security until they desperately need it – when they move into a new home, have a new baby, or the worst scenario – experience a break-in. When you are in the middle of a life change or a crisis, you don’t have time to spend researching various home security companies. Chances are the biggest brands will be top of mind. You’ll give them a call and make a decision quickly while talking to a high-pressure salesperson, without thinking it through carefully. You want to protect your home, family, and valuables with the best of the best – and it seems like the popular brands have a lot of satisfied customers. TV ads show happy families giving great testimonials, and a quick online search will show hundreds of promotional websites with sales and deals.
