Gratitude and humbleness will take you a long way in the small business industry and open doors to success, so will sounding professional and politically correct. It is good to plan well in advance while rolling out sales on your store. With the growing technology, online sales have become really important and hence, customers look forward to them. Every small business owner will eventually have an online store so they are able to make their product known locally, nationally and internationally.
With the advent of Internet, the online virtual world has become much easier to reap benefits from. One of the important ways to benefit from the virtual world is through online sales. So today, I am going to share some quick tips to increase your online sales this season.
Deals, Deals, Deals!
- Your target is your customers.
- Now, you’d think if they are returning customers, they’ve already bought your most attractive products; and if they haven’t bought them yet, they might never buy them.
- Maybe they only like your live store? Regardless, online sales are just the perfect place to reel them in.
- Come up with clever ways to sell your products. Post a 50% off coupon code. Offer free shipping, with complimentary gift wrapping. Create Bundles.
- If your $12 product is suddenly $6 for the month of July, that’s a deal that’s hard to pass up for someone who has not been able to buy it because they could not afford it.
- Or maybe an additional 20% off sale price? There are uncountable ways to create attractive deals to lure your customers.
- Most store platforms have tools you can use to create discount codes and run special deals.
- Most of the famous stores rarely give anything for free, no matter how much you buy from them.
- They almost have a monopoly in the market because they offer products from major brands.
- As a small business owner, you are free to be generous in your sales methods. This can become your unique selling point.
- Offer the customers to receive a link to a special deal in an e-mail, or send a little gift, like a tester of your upcoming product.
- Before your new product arrives, your customers will already have you on their bucket-list!
- Getting appreciation for their repeat purchases in the form of bulk discounts and coupon offers will also keep the customer coming back to you and even awaiting your new product.
Decorate Your Store
- All of us know that store sales have gone down considerably since the advent of ecommerce sites.
- With fierce competition, huge supply of all kinds of products and the money flowing in the industry at an all-time low, with the younger generations only wanting to buy online, physical sales are declining.
- Only the most famous stores are able to make ends meet through just store sales. Admit it.
- People rarely visit your store. Physical sales are not happening like they used to. And if they are, people are getting them from bigger stores.
- So how do you get people to visit your store? Give them some discounts.
- Yes, don’t tell me you don’t look up the “Grand Amazon Holiday Sale” at least once, even if it is just to check how low the prices are!
- Make it shiny. The holiday season is coming up and you want to make the best use of it.
- Give a holiday feel to your store. Encourage people to stop over and check out the “Holiday Store” for some great deals.
- Remind people that this is a temporary sale through July 25th (or whatever date you choose).
- Curiosity will encourage them to at least stop by and check out what you’ve got to offer.
Use Attractive Key-Words
- You don’t want to miss out people who’ve never bought your stuff or even heard of you.
- Here, it is important to encourage your customers to share your product “with family and friends” who they think would like to use them.
- Understand the power of suggestions and use it to your advantage.
- What you say and how you say it will affect how people decided to buy from your store.
