Generating consistent sales

    Hi all, I have been struggling along with a rustic furniture business for a while now.  I sell product, get plenty of repeat business from customers that I have sold to before, and people are very happy with my work.  I generate a fair amount of local business for a small town, and list things on Craigslist when sales are slow.  But realistically, I know I should be doing more business.  Does anyone have any ideas for me? Thanks!

    It is important to reach out to larger chunk of people. More and more people should know about the product you offer and the benefits of using it. You need to enhance your maketing efforts. Create an impressive online presence by working on the right keywords and implementing the search engine optimization strtegies. Also, create a presence on the social networking wbeistes, it will help.

    You need to get subscribers, you need to send them a chain of emails in order to sell them service. If that is done manual that becomes really complicated. But when you are using tools like tickletrain.com for organizing your email schedules - that becomes really useful and you do not need to spend to much time for that.

    1. Extend you online presence by posting on other website beyong craiglist.
    2. Have your own website, a portfolio style website. Post pictures and details of all work done to attract more customers. A free portfolio style website based on wordpress or like that will do the job,

    Try a web-sales automation platform like Deskgod. You will love it. Here is one article about them http://inventures.eu/deskgod-goes-to-silicon-valley

    It helps increase productivity and sales (online sales). I've been using it for a year by now and I am pretty satisfied with results. 

    Besides that, it has all you need to manage the sales process integrated into one place.

    Hey guys,

     

    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:

    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan
