No matter what you sell, how good your product is or how well you target your advertising to the right buyers, you’re going to get refund requests.

However, there are ways to dramatically reduce those requests.

For example, don’t make claims that aren’t backed by your product. I recently purchased a product on ClickBank that made BOLD claims in the sales copy that simply were not backed up by the product. And yes, I wasn’t at all happy and I did get a refund.

But if your product fulfills all of the promises made in your sales copy and you’re still getting refund requests, it’s possible your customers are forgetting why they bought the product.

To overcome this hurdle, send out a follow up email that again highlights the product benefits and reminds them of how incredibly smart and lucky they are to have your product in their hands.

Another possibility is they have a question about the product and they don’t know how to get an answer.

To prevent a refund simply because of customer confusion, I recommend sending out another follow up email that goes something like this:

Notice that as a bonus for you, this email also asks for their feedback, providing a wonderful opportunity to collect some juicy testimonials.

Often, all it takes to reduce refunds is to:

1: Be available to your customers. Don’t disappear on them as soon as the sale is made. If they have questions, answer them quickly in a friendly, helpful manner.

2: Continue to send out helpful tips and advice. If you can indicate that there is even more great stuff to come via email because of their purchase, they’re more likely to stick around to see what else is headed their way.

3: Don’t slam them with offers. They just bought from you, and anyone who buys is ripe to buy again. BUT… if all you send is offers, they’re going to feel you’re only in it for the money and not to help them. You’ve got to find the right balance of being there for them, offering useful tips, stories, case studies and so forth, and making new offers.

4: Let them know about the stellar results fellow product purchasers are getting. When you can show them that the product is working for others, they’ll be more excited to keep and use the product for themselves.
