Determine Top Sellers
Every company has a top seller that customers flock to. This should be front and center on your website. Make it one of your call to action banners directing customers there. Showcase that item or service off. If you sell ebooks and 4000 have download a specific book create a testimonial call to action banner right next to it. Get three quotes from readers it has helped and put that next to the eBook image along with “4000 Happy Customers Be Our Next One”. This builds trust around your top seller.
This is a huge factor in why you are not making money. Your pricing may be hurting you. Many boutiques think $10 items are going to help increase sales. Nope, sorry. It will take 100 people spending $10 to make $1000. Start working harder and smarter when it comes to strategic pricing. If your sales goal is $1000 for the month. 10 people spending $100 is the quicker way to achieve this. Or 20 people spending $50. Start pricing items accordingly.
