Holidays give you many reasons to break out of your wallet. With the holiday feeling checking in plus work bonuses pay out, the temptations to spend more than what you planned for are high. If you are in business, this is also a perfect time for you to maximize your profits.
There are ways and tools you can use to track your expenses. These tools can help you get value for your money when you use them appropriately. With the help of these tools, you can rest assured that there won’t be surprises when you finally receive your bank and credit card statements in January.
Some successful ways to maximize your profits include:
1. Run Flash Sales
A well-coordinated flash sale can be an opportunity to win over new customers and get you ahead of your competitors. Make your flash sales short to create a sense of urgency among customers. Make sure that you are strategic on the kind of products you choose to put on sale.
Start promoting your sales to influence customers to make a quick purchasing decision within a short window of time. Emphasize the quality of your products, limited quantity, and the super-discounted price.
2. Create Tiered Discounts
Tiered discounts and pocket option coupons can lead to an increase in your online sales. Tiered discount is a pricing strategy that encourages customers to buy products in large quantities and save more. Therefore, make it a perfect opportunity to increase sales and your average order level.
During holidays customers are likely to buy products in bulk. Selling goods in bulk can significantly reduce shipping and packaging costs as well as lower inventory costs. Tiered discounts can be useful if you need to get products at the risk of going out of date off the shelf.
3. Use CRM Software to Track Sales
CRM software can be useful beyond handling how you relate with customers. Effective use of CRM software can improve efficiency, turn prospects into customers and boost sales. Use the software to coordinate your business processes and make it easy to share information across your sales team.
To make the most out of your holiday profit you need to constantly monitor your sales cycle. The CRM platform can help you keep an eye on your sales and help you fix any flaws in your processes to improve sales. The system will also show you what is working, what is not, and what you need to do.
4. Free Shipping
There is no doubt that consumers love fast and free shipping. Offering free shipping can lead to more sales because it entices customers to purchase. Free shipping will also boost your average order value which strongly correlates to an increase in profit.
5. Use Coupons
Coupons can help you sell faster, increase sales volume, and cultivate loyal customers. Offer a discount to your new customers and you will be at the top of their shopping list. Offer coupons for loyal customers who refer friends to your business and structure it so that certain days reflect different coupons.
Coupons are not just ordinary discounts. Coupons can generate repeat business, accelerate repeat purchasing, and you’ll end up selling more in a short period. Coupons can also raise brand awareness and increase sales.
6. Bundle Products
Bundling products is a strategy that can improve profits on individual products in the long run. It can work well for buyers who are looking for deals, those looking for advice on items that complement each other, and buyers looking for convenience.
Create a bundle of products that customers can buy together at a discounted price and maximize your sales from every customer that you’ll attract. You can make the best out of this strategy by combining less popular products with hot-selling items.
7. Email Your Customers
Email marketing gives you a chance to directly speak to your customers. It is, therefore, a perfect chance to tell them about your products and your current ongoing sales. To maximize sales through email make sure that you use a catchy and value-driven subject line, use relevant images, and write concise text.
8. Send Specialized Gift Cards
The holiday season is happy but can be lonely for some people. Sending gift cards with specialized text not only makes your customers happy but also makes them want to purchase from you. Gift cards can be a good deal for your business as they have the potential to bring in new customers.
Draw in Customers During the Holidays
As a business owner, the holiday season is a chance to maximize and make profits out of merriment. It is also a season for pampering your customers and spreading good cheer that will make them want to come back when the holidays are gone.
