How To Jump Start Your Sales

Copyright (c) 2005-2019

Looking for some different ways to help jump start your product and service sales? Here are some ideas to mix in with your plans.

1. Find a strategic business joint venture (JV) partner. Look for ones that have the same objective. You can trade leads, share marketing info, sell package deals, etc.

2. Brand your name and business. One way to do this is by to write industry articles, include your byline and submit them to e-zines or web sites to be published.

3. 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.

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

5. Model other successful business or people. I'm not saying out right copy them, but practice some of the same habits that have made them succeed.

6. Take risks to improve your business. Sometimes businesses don't want to advertise unless it's very inexpensive. But sometimes you might have to spend a little more money to get results.

7. Include emotional words in your advertisements. Use ones like love, security, relief, freedom, happy, satisfaction, fun, etc. Learn more copywriting secrets from correspondence courses at American Writers and Artists Institute; then get some help putting what you learn to use: http://www.presssuccess.com/specialty.html

8. Ask people online 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.

9. Out source part of your workload and automate what you can. Saving on most employee costs, you could out source your secretarial work, accounting, marketing, etc. And automate your order taking or shopping cart procedures and receipts, newsletter distribution, broadcasts and more with a service like ProfitAuto, with a 30-day trial period and customer help at a toll-free number.

10. 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.
