There is nothing worse than seeing that your sales and business have taken a crash. It’s supposed to grow gradually each month, but that’s not always the case unfortunately. This is common when a bad economy hits, people are tight on money, and when you have a lot of competitors. Although you may not be doing so hot right now, that doesn’t mean it’s going to stay like that. Give your business a pick up!
Sales - People love when they see a good sale. Whether you send out ads with great deals, or e-mail them to your customers, you need to let them know you’re willing to give good sales too. This is what draws in people!
Compete - Compete with your competitors. If they have an item you have for $20, make yours $19. Simple things like being just a little cheaper is what can draw in people sometimes. You have competitors, so compete with them!
What they want - Give your customers what they want. If there is a hot item out this Christmas, put that item on sale. Give people what they want, and they will stop in. If you can just get them into the door, they will most likely buy other things.
Good service – Make sure your business has good service. Greet your customers, ask if they are finding everything okay, be friendly, and treat your customers the way you’d want to be treated.
Picking up the pace at your business isn’t hard to do. Simply follow a few of the tips listed above, and you will see an increase in sales, customers, and you just may do better than you competitors. Not to mention, your business will grow from last month which is what your goal should always be. If you can beat last month, or last year during this month, you know you’ve improving and your business is growing.
