Clearly I am on a BIG sales kick right now to help you come up with as many ideas as possible to raise your sales RIGHT NOW! We need to get your customers to open their wallets! I reached out to my Entreprenette Experts to get some innovative and different ideas for you to try right now.
One other fun tip that a friend is doing now (and said I can share it with you all) is to offer a % off that matches the count down to Christmas. So if you want to start today December 1st, there are 25 days left……today's sale would be 25% off, tomorrow 24% off and so on down the line……… this is a way to create a buying frenzy to get your customers clamoring for the items at the highest discount. Post this on FB and email to your mailing list right now!
Hope you find some good ideas from my Experts here – let me know your favorites and what you try out and the results!
I have a vinyl decal on the back window of my car. It tells what I do and gives the website. Advertises 24/7 wherever I go. If you don’t like it on all the time, try magnetics signs. Got them from SignLinks on Etsy!
I definitely agree that, in this economy, people are much more open to spending if they feel like they are getting something back as well. We recently rebranded and relaunched our website and, to help build more traffic and awareness, we are offering a money match promotion so people earn store credit to use after the new year depending on the amount they spend now. Everybody wins!
Thank you for sharing these ideas. So many of them are so simple, yet at the same time, not something you’d think of right away. I can’t wait to implement these. ♥
Great ideas!! Thanks so much for sharing!
Great ideas! My print giveaways work well…. and there is so many other things to try! Happy Holidays!
Very helpful! Thank you.
L@@K! My tip above was just used by Tim Ferris (4 Hour Work Week fame).

The fact that it’s sold out, shows that this strategy actually works in real life!
What we do is make sure we are delivering a quality product for the right price and on time. We make sure our customers are happy and spreading the word. Special discounts for ongoing customers makes them feel special and then they tell someone who tells someone and viral marketing thrives. We also capture new customers at trade shows- we give them a free product, gather their contact info- then they take the free sample back to their home, school or office- We then follow up to see if we can answer questions and usually, if they haven’t bought a complete set of our Paddles, we can close a deal. If you can get the customer to open their wallet- and you deliver- you will have a fan for life!
