This is a concept every business wants to hear, spend less on your marketing regime can increase sales. A lot of your businesses profits are reinvested into expensive marketing schemes such as advertising, sales reps, and distributors. Most likely these mediums are driving a decent amount of sales by focusing on site traffic, SEO, and social media. The inexpensive secret to driving up sales is to have a prominent voice in the community.
Building relationships with your customer base before you try to sell them something is the key. If you can somehow connect with them on a personal level, they feel an obligation to at least listen to what you can offer them. This approach does take time learning who your customer is and what is the best way to connect with them. In turn this builds a loyal customer base that will give you a free, very effective marketing tool to boot, word of mouth.
Becoming an expert in your retail field and sharing all of your best secrets is the only way to make this work. Take the BMW mechanic that posts DIY Youtube videos for home mechanics. He shares his expertise, because he knows novice mechanics will use the video to learn how to change the headlights. When a big job that’s over the novice mechanics head like a transmission needing to be replaced, there is no hesitation of who will do the job right. This is a prime example of building credibility to increase sales.
Start creating your own voice and build your relationships with customers, because everyone likes buying from people they trust.
