Perhaps you’ve been selling your hand-made crafts for quite some time now. You’ve got a nice routine going on, you can easily create the products in record time for your customers. Now that you’ve mastered the basics, you are ready to up your sales a bit. However, you don’t know what else you can do to bring in more sales. You post on Facebook once a day, update your twitter several times a day, got a blog post going out 2-3 times a week…what else is there?
Optimize what you are already doing.
- With your blog posts, check for SEO and create efficient tags for each posts.
- On Facebook, make sure that each post is relative to what you are doing concerning your business.
- Try a newsletter.
- Aim for interaction from your fans, followers, and subscribers.
- Encourage those fans, followers, and subscribers to purchase your wares.
- Release a new product, or new options for existing products.
- Be blunt and ask for the sale.
Keep doing what you are doing. Make sure that you are gradual in your growth because I can tell you from personal experience that slowing down your sales is actually harder than speeding up 😛 Perseverance, and having a quality product that your previous customers can and will endorse is oftentimes the best form of advertising there is. When that isn’t working to your liking, try the above suggestions.
