1. You're not asking for the sale or you're not making enough offers. Most of us are afraid to seem pushy or salesy, but if you need to sell more, you need to remember you're running a business. You have to make offers and directly ask for the sale.
2. You haven't earned our trust. To sell more, your customers need to trust you. Show them testimonials, reviews, befores and afters.
3. Your offer isn't specific enough. Choose a specific audience and make specific offers tailored to them.
4. We have no idea what you're actually selling. To sell more, make sure your customers understand exactly what you're selling and aren't confused by what you do or sell.
5. Your price is not right. Do NOT c'mon DOWN! You may be too expensive or too cheap for your ideal customers, or you haven't communicated the value of your offer.
6. You've given us too many damn choices. To sell more, remember that a confused mind always says no.

Whether you offer products or services, if you're looking for small business marketing ideas that will help you grow your business -- without having to spend a fortune on costly advertising that may or may not work, here's a simple way to boost your visibility and sales.
Of all the small business marketing ideas you try, this could be your most powerful marketing tool by far. It's this -- Become THE alternative to some product or brand your customers are already using.
Don't be fooled by the seeming simplicity of this. And don't think this doesn't apply to your product or business. This simple strategy has been responsible for some of the greatest successes and wealth creation people have ever seen.
With all the small business marketing ideas out there, most don't address the number one issue. The biggest problem for most businesses is that, at first glance, potential customers have no clear idea what you offer or why they should buy from you.
In effect, most products and businesses are virtually "invisible." This technique solves that problem, quickly and simply, regardless of the type of business you have.
This is one of those small business marketing ideas that can work for virtually any business -- even yours -- to boost sales and profits. I've seen it with hundreds of people and businesses. They apply all kinds of small business marketing ideas. Then, as soon as they try this, everything changes.
A simple twist like this could be the difference between years and decades of struggling to make a paycheck, and almost instant success and a life of cash that flows in week-after-week and year-after-year.
So, what and who are you competing with? And how specifically are you different?
Try this. When it comes to small business marketing ideas, you may be surprised at how simple yet powerful this can be, to help you grow your business.
