Five Simple Strategies to Build Your Sales
Here are five simple ways to build your business over the coming months:
Your network will know plenty of prospects that are exactly the right fit for you. Make a plan to ask for introductions on a regular basis. Everyone at your company should be doing this!
Don’t give up on customers that you think have given up on you! Members of The Successful Print Sales Circle regularly win a lot of business by contacting past customers. You can contact a lot of people in just a few hours and this nearly always brings results.
What could you launch to your existing customers? You don’t have to re-invent the wheel. The best tactic is to frame it from your customers’ point of view.
Upselling key clients
Your best clients are usually happy to buy more from you. You just need to give them a reason. Ask them what else they would like from you: you probably offer it already!
Finding new clients
Remember to use The TPD Principle to focus on exactly who is the right type of client for you. Understand their business challenges (remember, it is rarely how to find a better printer!) and why they should work with you rather than the competition. Now you have a plan for finding and approaching prospects who have a good chance of turning into customers.
