With the economy not exactly flourishing right now, we can understand why you may feel like you’re running around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to keep your sales from plummeting. Don’t worry, we’ve got some tips to help you keep your sales from going anywhere but up. Instead of trying to create new solutions to fit the declining economy, you’re better off cutting programs that you offer that don’t bring in enough sales, that way you can focus your efforts on the services and programs that you know will work. We suggest finding your top three of four services, and then market, market, market. You don’t have to get rid of the rest, but let’s say your company offers 10 total services. Scale the services from most moneymaking, to least moneymaking. Get rid of the bottom three, and use the budget you were using on marketing for those services, and double the marketing for the top three services. Make sense? We hope. By showcasing the services that you know work and work well, it’ll leave you with a more effective marketing budget, and with the ability to more strongly promote, leaving you with the best possible chance of a buyer.
