1. Combine a product and service together in a package deal. It could increase your sales. If you’re selling a book, offer an hour of consulting with it.
2. Out source part of your workload. You’ll save on most employee costs. You could out source your secretarial work, accounting, marketing, etc.
3. Ask people online to review your web site. You can use the comments you get to improve your web site or you may turn the reviewer into a customer.
4. Include emotional words in your advertisements. Use ones like love, security, relief, freedom, happy, satisfaction, fun, etc.
5. Take risks to improve your business. Sometimes businesses don’t want to advertise unless it’s free, sometimes you have to spend money to get results.
6. Model other successful business or people. I’m not saying out right copy them, but practice some of the same habits that have made them succeed.
