The Art of Selling products

Posted by Logan Marshall on August 25 in 9. Types of Businesses |

Something to sell?

So, you’ve already got your product that you intend to sell and you’re ready to start selling. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how good you think your product is, it’s whether your potential customers want to buy it that matters. This desire to purchase your product doesn’t necessarily stem from how good the product is as marketing plays a very large part in selling. A mediocre product with good marketing will sell better than an outstanding product with no marketing.

Shipping

. You need to consider how you are going to ship your items to your customer. Your local post office will be able to provide you with some good ideas on this topic and you should consider the costs of posting as well as the packaging you will need for each item. Also company labels are part of very effecting company branding and will serve to enhance the appearance of your company in general. Always be sure to ship your items within the deadlines you specify. If you say it will be with a customer within 5 working days aim to get it there in 3 or 4 and allow yourself a little breathing space in case anything goes wrong.

Selling

. Mail order, telephone orders, website sales and store sales are all options you should consider. Owning a store is good if you sell localized products that will probably only sell to people in your area but it can cost a lot of money to rent and maintain a physical store and you won’t get as many potential customers as you would using the Internet. Telephone and mail order are useful tools and used in conjunction with a website to market your catalogue would be the most effective and far reaching method of sales. A website on it’s own is very useful but by producing a catalogue to send to customers you are giving them a point of reference and something to remember you by.

Customer Service.

Customer service is important in every business. With good customer service you will succeed and you will prosper, but with bad customer service or none at all you are almost certainly dooming your company to failure. A customer wants to know that they can trust you, if they feel they aren’t getting the level of service they require they are unlikely to buy any products from you.

Selling products.

Shipping, selling and customer service are three of the most important factors when considering selling products. Whether you choose to do this online or not it is important that yo upay attention to all factors concerning your business because if you fail on any one front it is very unlikely that your customers will come back to purchase from you again.
