Looking for new ways to increase sales



  • lysellalysella subscriber Posts: 3
    I have used and have had many clients ask for referrals. You mentioned that you have done this, but haven't gotten any. Maybe you need to ask a more specific question. For example, call past client Joe.
      remind him who you are and what he liked about the finished product/service.
      ask if your work is still holding up well.
      If not, blow him away by offering to come out and take a look at what needs work. Then, if a small job, do it for free!
        If work holding up, say you're glad to hear it.
        Tell him you're looking to grow your business. Ask if he can think of ONE person that he has talked to in the past week in his neighborhood or at work that is thinking about getting some work done on their house.
        Then ask if he would be willing to give you that person's name and number.
          If yes, thank him and then ask if he'd be willing to give that person a call as soon as you hang up to tell them that he has given their number to you and that you'll be following up for a no-pressure conversation.

          The specificity of asking these questions in this order helps people to envision an actual person they know. When we ask for general things like, "do you have any referrals?" our minds are not able to attach that request to an actual human. When we get specific and ask, "Do you know anyone from home or work (gives their mind a way to scan through home and work conversations) that you have talked to in the past week (limits the time frame that the brain has to search for information) who is thinking about having work done on their house (gives the brain the specific topic to search for)?" our brains do a much better job at coming up with referrals.

          Let me know if this works for you.

          > I have a small home design and remodeling company. My business has been steady for a while, but I`m really looking for more growth. I`ve tried advertising in newspapers, sending out mailings, "warm" calling possible clients, Google, but nothing is really working. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas?

          Try to find potential clients online, maybe instagram or facebook. And try to create inspiring accounts, because you have to motivate people to buy your products

          I've seen businesses small & big alike benefiting immensely from online marketing for lead generation. Small businesses for example when promoted through local SEO techniques worked wonders. In fact, as a marketer that was my first project. Today, after 4 years, that small business gets more than 60% of its business through online channels. And believe it or not, even small local businesses can benefit from a good looking website (branding perspective).
