Average Dollars Per Sales You may be surprised but.... We are not pro-discounting! We would much prefer our clients to either; Offer free samples Selling their products in packages 2 for 1 offers Bonuses or Freebies when a customer spends a certain amount Discounts on the Upsell
Discounting Doesn't Add up... The table below shows the negative effects of discounting. It shows how many additional items you need to sell in order to keep the exact same profit! If you don’t know your Profit Margin, most businesses operate between 25% -40%
Small Business Can’t Operate on Commodity Pricing Unlike most advertising/marketing companies we will aim to move our clients up the graph. Commodity pricing is unsustainable.
Number of Repeat Purchases Local Residents are much more likely to be repeat buyers based purely on demographics (i.e. higher rate of repeat business from a Northside resident than a Southside resident) We will constantly market to them in a very personal manner on behalf of our clients so your business will stay in their mind They will not only receive offers from you, they will be educated about you and your business
One more thing... All our membership cards are uniquely numbered. If you copy down the number off the card when the buyer makes a purchase we can offer additional services such as; Personalised Postal Mail outs Personalised Email Marketing You can send exclusive offers to known buyers– especially if you make note of what products they have already bought! We can even help you start your own database!
It’s all about relationship building “They buy because of what you promise, they stick around because they like you.” - Gary Halbert
So, What's the next step? No cost to get started. Have a think about your special offer to our members All we ask is for your co-operation as a launch – we have some tight deadlines and would like to have your offers, graphics etc taken care of before that date.
