Do you have a business and cannot seem to capture enough sales?
Do you hear and learn about the newest online platforms and think I am going to give that a go? If it worked for them it will work for me?
At FP Comms, we have clients who find success in unexpected places. Here are three alternative ways you may not have considered:
- Speaking opportunities: Speaking engagements can be a direct and indirect source of income. People are willing to pay you to tell your story and share your expertise. However, there is also the potential to pick up new clients and customers for your business. That is why platforms like TED and SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY talks, are so successful for businesses.
- If you are a retailer, selling via Amazon or other online retailers can help you increase sales. It can sometimes be easier for consumers to locate your product on these larger platforms, instead of them having to search the entire WWW to find you on your own website. Even though you have to pay these platforms a percentage, a combination of working on both platforms can be lucrative.
- Subscription boxes: many small businesses shy away and are afraid to work with the subscription box sector. However, not all boxes are the same, so you have to find the correct one for you and your business. It can be cost and labour intensive upfront. However, when you work with the correct one, it can prove lucrative and beneficial for your business. At FP Comms, we have worked with a number of boxes and they vary in impact and target audience.
There you have it three ideas for new ways to help you increase your sales. Many entrepreneurs get stuck in the way they promote their business. Successful marketing is a combination of science, skill, and
Many entrepreneurs get stuck in the way they promote their business. Successful marketing is a combination of science, skill, and hard work. Not all platforms are suitable for all businesses, do your research, find the right one for you and keep learning.
Have a great day!
