Learn to Improve Sales - 10 Ways to Get More Business Starting Today


You need sales and you wanted them yesterday. Here are ten ideas to start those sales pouring in. Learn them then use them.

Brand your name and business. This is the most important thing you can do for your business. You can easily do this by just writing articles and submitting them to e-zines, web sites, press-release sites, local newspapers for publishing or republishing. Including your picture where possible is powerful.

Find a strategic business partner/s. Look for ones that have the same objective. You can trade leads, share marketing info, sell package deals, and more. This works online as well as offline.

Take notice of successful business or people that directly compete with you. Study the aspects that make them successful then model your business after them. I'm not saying out right copy them, but practice some of the same habits that have made them succeed.

Take a little time out of your day or week to brainstorm. New ideas are usually the difference between success and failure.

Take risks to improve your business. Sometimes businesses don't want to advertise unless it's free. Usually you have to spend money to get results.

Include emotional words in your advertisements. Use words like love, security, relief, freedom, happy, satisfaction, fun, discover, etc for powerful hypnotic effect.

Ask people to review your web site. You can use the comments you get to improve your web site or you may turn the reviewer into a customer.

Combine a product and service together in a package deal. It could increase your sales. If you're selling a book, offer an hour of consulting with it.

Offer a product on the back-end. After product is sold suggest a complimentary product or products. Online this can be done on the thank you page. Offline it is used all the time? "would you like fries with your meal?"

Start an auction on your web site. The type of auction could be related to the theme of your site. You'll draw traffic from auctioneers and bidders.

Ok, time to roll up the sleeves and put one or more of these strategies to work for you. They won't start working for you unless you start working them first. Make it happen today.
