Valentine love

sale is the pinnacle activity involved in selling products or services in return for money or other compensation. It is an act of completion of a commercial activity.

Hold a discount sale on your web site. Use the sale to get
rid of excess inventory, gain new or repeat customers, and
increase your sales. Most businesses pick a theme for their
sale, like a Valentine Sale. Below are six unique sales
themes you could use:

Nobody’s Visiting Today Sale

Every online business has low visitor and sales day through
the week. Some businesses are Tuesdays and Thursdays. You
could sell your products or services for cheaper to increase
sales on your slow days. You could have this advertised
right on your web site.

Time Of The Day Sale

Periodically , pick out a time of the day like 5 to 7 pm to
lower your prices. With online sales you need tell people
the time zone. Announce your scheduled times ahead of
time in your e-zine. This will give people enough time to
plan when they will visit your web site.

Product Or Service Of The Day Sale

Each day offer different product or service at a lower price.
This will draw people back to your web site everyday. This
is a high traffic generating sale. If you don’t have a lot of
products and services you may want to run the sale weekly
or monthly.

Niche Group Sale

Hold a sale for a niche groups of people. Students, senior
citizens, single people etc. This really works if your
introducing a new product or service for the first time to a
new target audience. Announce your sale in a targeted
e-zine, e-mail discussion groups, message boards, etc.

Holiday Or Seasonal Sale

Offer lower prices on holidays and during seasonal changes.
These type of sales let your visitors and customers know
your no scrooge. Be creative and go as far as decorating
your web site. You could upload holiday and seasonal
graphics. Change the color of your text to match. Get in the
spirit!

Get More For Your Money Sale

Give customers more products or services for their money.
People relate these kind of sales to getting a bargain or
saving money. You could o.ffer a b.uy one get one for half
off sale, a b.uy two get the third one f.ree, two for the price
of one sale, etc.

Five Steps to Selling Online: This could change your life.

Selling online may not be as simple as you think.  You may have a fantastic product or service but if you don’t understand and monitor the basic metrics to online success, you may be at more risk than you think!

Five Steps to Selling Online

  • Step 1 – Pick a good market and research it very well
  • Step 2 – Determine your site’s basic strategy. What will you offer?
  • Step 3 – Be sure your site is collecting emails from large % of visitors (10%+)
  • Step 4 – Be sure your site is profitably converting visitors to sales (visitor value $1.00+)
  • Step 5 – Once steps 3 & 4 accomplished then and only then pour on as much qualified traffic as you can get at affordable prices

Possible goals of your web site:

  • 1. Collect emails
  • 2. Make sales
  • 3. Make you look good to the media, potential clients & others
  • 4. Attract lots of search engine traffic

To maximize individual results, in long run consider having separate sites.

Simple Math you need to understand:
Opt-in Rate — % of unique visitors who give you their email address
Example: 100 people visit and 15 give email = 15% opt-in rate
Conversion Rate — % of people who buy your initial offering
Example: 100 people visit and 1 buys = 1% conversion rate
Value Per Visitor – What’s it worth to get a qualified visitor to your site?
Example: 100 people visit and 1 buys product on which you make $50.00
That means $50 x .01 = 50 cents value per visitor

Lifetime value of a customer When somebody becomes a customer how much are they ultimately worth to you over the length of the relationship?

100 people buy your $50 profit product. Of those, on average 10 will pay you at least $1,000 for consulting each year for an average of three years each.

Thus if we multiply $1,000 x .10 x 3 years = $300 average consulting revenue
Then add the $50 initial profit and we have a lifetime value of $350

An example of a successful money making web site:

  • You can get 5,000 visitors a month at 50 cents each
  • 20% of the web visitors opt-in to your email list
  • On average each visitor is worth $2 within 30 days
  • That means you spend $2,500/month on advertising, but generate gross profits of $10,000/month, net $7,500/month and your email list is growing at 1,000 names/month.
