How To Keep Your Sales Soaring


Worrying that the economy or your industry in particular might be

slowing down? Forget about it. Build momentum and create your

own sales surge!


1. Maximize the effectiveness of your banner and other ads. Don't

just use the same ad on every page. Use a variety to attract the

greatest number of clicks.


2. Make your web site load much faster by cutting down on huge

banner ads and start using more buttons. Smaller button ads also

take up less space on the pages, leaving more room for

uncluttered white space.


3. Offer free advertising space to well known and respected

companies on your web site. Sometimes people link their business

credibility to yours.


4. People have been taught all their life to respect people in

authority. Let your visitors know that you are the president or

CEO of your business. Donít be shy!


5. Offer people a free telephone consultation before they order

your product. When they get to know you personally, it could

convert to more sales.


6. Test the "bill me later option" on your web site. Most people

are honest and will pay you. It is a powerful little niche and

could increase your sales.


7. Find a charity your target audience would likely support. Team

up and share the news with your propects and clients in your ad

copy so that they know you are donating a percentage of the

profits to that charity. Learn more copywriting tips from

correspondence courses at American Writers and Artists Institute;

then get some help putting what you learn to use:


8. Hold a "buy the most wins contest" on your web site. Tell

people each monthly winner will get their entire purchase

refunded. Try focusing on something special each month, too, like

new monthy ebooks from an affordable subscription site like

EbookWholesaler and PushButtonPublishing online here:


9. Attract visitors to your web site by offering them a free

course. You could package the course on a follow-up

autoresponder and send lessons daily or weekly. Autoresponders

like those at ProfitAuto, come with a 30-day trial period and can be

upgraded.And some product subscriptions sites offer content that

you can break up to use as your courses. For more info, visit: check out the

Secret Autoresponder Courses here for your business tool belt:


10. Interview people related to your industry and get their

permission to include the information in an article. Then promote

your web site by submitting the article to ezines.
