People don’t know about your products.

There is a reason why companies and businesses invest a big sum of money in adverts and marketing.

Your biggest focus as a business owner should be to promote your business as far as you can and as much as you can.

They should be able to see all you have to sell easily and directly. To display your products properly for your customers to see and arrange in a more important format.

A more important format means you arrange your products in a way where your major products come fast and the other minor products come later.

Your Pricing is way too high

Why should I buy a costly perfume if I can get it somewhere else at a cheaper price? Put your self in your customer’s position while determining prices for your customers.

Customers want a product or products that have maximum value and minimum cost.

What I mean here is customers look want to pay as less as they can on any product or service they are acquiring.

So check your competitor’s pricing and revise yours accordingly. Don’t put your prices too low to out-compete other businesses because you may make a loss.

Rather price your products and services at a price affordable to your targeted customers. Let your customers buy their products at an affordable cost.

Your products and services are substandard

Are you selling quality products?

Customers want quality over quantity. In fact, most customers are willing to pay more for the quality you give them.

If you have fake products in your shop, or your services are not working like the way you promote them and promise your customers that they will, you are doing a disservice to yourself.

Stock original products and also give quality services.

Don’t bing counterfeit products in your shop with the aim of making quick profits because you will end up losing all your customers.

Improve the customer care you give to your customers and they will appreciate that by committing themselves to your business alone.

You don’t convince customers well enough to buy

Sometimes you may have all the good products, good price and all your services are standard but your salespeople may not be as good or as convincing as necessary.

What customers like is how they feel when they are at your place. Customers buy feelings and if you give them time and explain to them the products you are selling and how they work, they can more than readily support you.
