Do you find yourself wondering why you’re not getting any sales? Don’t worry; you are not alone. The majority of start-up business owners and even those who have been in business for a long time still scratch their heads and wonder why they are not making enough.
If you are not getting enough sales then take a closer look at your marketing plan. If one strategy is no longer working, ditch it. If a technique appears to be obsolete, get rid of it. It doesn’t matter if you’ve poured blood, sweat and tears into your original marketing plan, learn to adapt and embrace change. As early as today, analyse your marketing plan and see if it’s getting the outcome you want. If not, then it’s time you try other techniques to boost your sales.
Here are three common reasons why you are not getting sales.
- You Didn’t Grow Your Email List
Having an email list is crucial to any business because your sales will be coming from the people on that list. With the popularity of social media platforms, it’s easy to get sidetracked and forget about building an email list. Why build a list when you’ve got ten thousand followers on Facebook? We’re here to remind you that you do not own these platforms. You do not have control over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They could shut down any time and when they do, it will leave you with a non-existent database.
- You Don’t Understand Their Pain
Consumers make purchases out of their desire to have their problems solved. We call these problems “pain.” Once you begin to have a clear understanding of what your target market’s pain is, you can start creating a link between the product or service you are selling and their pain”, and that’s where you’ll obtain the sale. Why waste time and energy convincing people to buy your product when you can easily show them how your product or service can improve their lives and solve their pain.
- You Are Selling At The Wrong Time
Do you notice retail stores putting up clearance and end of season sale signs? This is because they know that consumers’ want change according to the season. Take for instance, clothing. Winter clothes such as coats are no longer useful during spring. You have to look at your products and see if they are appropriate for the season because no matter how much you pay for marketing and advertising, you will never get a sale if it has no use to your target market. Think in advance and study what your potential customers would want on this particular month and the next and so on.
Selling your products and services can be quite challenging and daunting as well but as long as you know what works and what doesn’t, getting sales isn’t very hard.
