Display the Pictures Of Your products
When you showcase the images of your products, say for instance, a new clothing style you just discovered, or you displaying the photos of your existing customers with your clothing styles on them (with their consent though). It can be a source of encouragement for prospective customers.
So, it is very important that you take testimonies of your customers and if possible, their pictures as evidence. And it is equally a better option that you also make use of what you are producing, in that when people see it with or on you, it can serve as a means of attracting them.
Be Service Oriented
If indeed you desire to hike up your sales, then it should reflect in your attitude and passion to do so. Try to set up time for transactions and meetings regarding your product. Avail yourself as much as possible to even go the extra mile of delivering your product at office or home. Your desperation will definitely go a long way to boost your business.
You should also be ready to help your customers in any way as regarding the use of your products. This attitude can pave way for more customers through referrals.
Let’s say for instance, you’re into arts selling business, and your buyer hasn’t made a specific pick of the piece of art that they want from your collection, you can also offer them that you bring a number of your art to their home or office, free of charge. Do this, so that they can see how it would fit in their environment. However, you should also make it clear to them that they are not obliged to buy it if they don’t want to.
Give Them A Taste Test and Freebie
If you want, you can also offer people to have a piece or two of your works for a trial period of one or two weeks, just to see how they would like it.
However, with this kind of deal, you should make sure that you have a written contract about your agreement, get a promissory note, deposit or whatever kind of security for your art’s safety.
Moreover, you can considers giving out freebie, if only you can afford it. It will go a long way to bossy your business. Most especially in online business, freebies help to get more leads and grow your list. When you have a list of customers, you can always and easily updates them about your business, new arrivals, or new styles, whatsoever it may be.
Ask questions, Do surveys
You may also want to try doing surveys. Ask people why they like or dislike a certain piece made by other company or manufacturer. From their answers, get some ideas of how they would react if your work is in the hot seat. Of course, you do not do this just to be discouraged, but to be able to think fresh and innovatively for your next product.
In fact you will get to know the strength and weakness of your competitors and your business.
Speak Their Language, describe your product in the way prospective customers will understand.
One of the most common mistakes of product marketers makes is that they talk to impress. Yes, it is good if you know a lot of techniques, components and factors regarding your product.
However, it is not all people that would be interested in buying your work knows the technical aspect of your product. Get hit right, a tailor who is willing to sell a new piece of cloth will not go about telling the buyer the kind of tread, the kind of machine, the number of days to complete and some other irrelevant stuffs. Some of your customers may be everyday people who knows nothing about the technical aspect of your work, but are just simply captivated by your work.
In this case, try not to delve into some unnecessary and heated product discus, most importantly if they’re not really asking for it. Avoid giving them information that would remain incomprehensible. Try and come down to their level, since intimidating your prospective customers is one thing you will never want to do.
