4. Find Promotional Items that Compliment Your Business Niche
You can always find certain items that will compliment your type of business - items that you know your customers will use often! For Example: A pharmacy may want to order daily pill organizers with pharmacy name, address, phone, fax, and Web address printed on them. This way, as soon as customer needs a refill, they will be automatically reminded to go to www.yourpharmacy.com to reorder!
5. Packaging Products for Multiple Sales
One of most overlooked (and cost effective) techniques for generating extra revenues is packaging.
You may be able to package your products along with promotional items for increased sales. For Example; An online video business may offer all three Star Wars videos along with a Star Wars T-Shirt. Customers love packages such as this, and it would be a unique way to promote site and product! Do you have products which compliment each other? Remember, this is a sale you may or may not have made without package deal so it's almost like getting FREE MONEY!!
6. Free Contests and Drawings
You can give promotional items away in contest drawings. People love to win stuff. Itís exciting for them to enter, and contest helps drive traffic to your site!
** To be successful with contests, make prize related to your business so that entrants are targeted.
I hope this has you thinking about special promotions and how you can use them to enhance your online business. Online success comes in increments so use some of these tips along with other fresh marketing ideas to keep your business ahead of competition!
