Steps to Getting Your First 100 Sales.
Don’t Keep It A Secret….Spread The Word
Don’t keep your online business a secret. You need to tell everybody about it. Start by creating your sales pitch so you know what to say. Remember to cover all the main benefits of the kind of product or service that you provide. Perfect your sales pitch while spreading the word by practicing on family and friends. After you master your sales pitch, speak passionately about your online store or website every chance you get.
Let The World Know With a Press Release
Now that you’ve told everyone about your online business, get the media to help spread the word. It is not as hard as you might think, and it is definitely not just for major businesses. Simply draft a press release and send it to all local media outlets – news, magazines, and radio. Take time to write a good press release. As well as distributing it to local media, submit your press release to online companies like PRWeb. Write with a professional voice using lots of facts but stop yourself from using too much jargon.
Contact Influential Bloggers and YouTube Channels
As well as the traditional press, it is also a great idea to reach out to influential and relevant bloggers and YouTuber’s in your niche. There are lots of influential bloggers in every niche who have a huge following. One review from them about your business could make all of the difference. Simply ask them if they would like to write a review or receive sample products. If a blogger or YouTube channel agrees to feature your online store, products or services, make sure they link back to your site! This backlink will help your Search Engine optimization (SEO). Professional bloggers and YouTubers will already do this and will make sure that you and your company is mentioned throughout the review.
Increase Traffic with SEO
SEO, search engine optimization, is vital when potential customers search for the products or services that you provide. Optimize your site by using relevant keywords in product descriptions, category pages as well as the URL. Also be sure to fill out the Meta information for each product so that Google and the other search engines can show people what you have to offer.
