You Can Easily Increase Party Bookings and Sales
Communicating with your customers easily and at their convenience can make life so much easier for any busy business owner. Finding the right way to do so is so much easier now with blogs, email newsletters, websites and social groups like myspace.
The best place to start with any project is with the easiest and quickest solution. Blogs are an easy solution because you can start off with a free version and then upgrade to a paid service by the host when you are generating increased sales (making more money to pay for things).
Through a blog you can announce and promote new products and initiatives, let people subscribe to your newsletter and go in the promotional competition. You can share news and information stories about your goods that would interest your customers and get conversations going with the comments. You want to stay in the minds of your customers so you get more bookings so if they can visit an interesting blog and see the goodies you improve your profile.
Blogs can be a really affordable way to start as you can setup a free account and later upgrade the same blog to a paid service where you have more control over the advertising shown on the blog.
Using a blog host service you can also tap into their established relationship
s with search engines. They usually have a great response with the use of key words in your articles and tags (categories) so your work at promoting the blog with search engines is cut in half straight away. All you’ll really need to do is submit your blog to blog directories.
From your blog you can generate income by selling your goods directly as well as affiliate programs and advertising. This might sound all very tricky to start with but with a bit of exploring you’ll find it is all very straight forward.
An email newsletter lets you regularly contact your valued customers so they are reminded of you and your service of bringing great product to them. You can showcase new designs, announce sales, let people know about events, lead customers to the blog or website with more information and announce competition winners.
Email newsletters can be forwarded to friends and family to spread the word about coupons, discounts, specials, party bookings and all the while promoting your business to generate sales for you.
A website has more setup costs than a blog but has more scope for generating income for you through selling of goods, information and broadening an affiliate program.
It is easier to use your blog and website in promotional material both online and offline as they are very affordable 24/7 marketing tools. How much would it cost you to be in the local newsletter every edition with multiple pages in color cataloguing your products and services? And that would only reach your local audience.
Social groups like myspace and its compatriots are a great way of getting to a younger market, especially teens and early 20’s. You can share information about you and the business with extra services available on your blog and website.
These are all methods for people, customers, to find you and learn about your goods and services with the aim of making party bookings with you and shopping with you. A blog and email newsletter are two quick ways to get started with a very little setup cost investment.
If you have the stock to sell why not sell it online as well as via parties? Increasing your customer base is always something that you’re working towards and making happen so explore other options too.
