Update on

Hey, small business owner, I don't know what business you are in but since you are here. I do know this, you are looking to expand your business.

And if you smiled reading this, let me take you through 6 effective points by which you can increase your sales and expand your business. Let’s get started.

1. Build sales funnel

Build sales funnel

Let's understand how the sales funnel works in a simple manner.

Suppose around, 2000 people find your page through ads, videos, references, etc. these 2000 are at the top of the funnel. Out of these, let's say, only 1000 people actually take out the time to look at your web page and go through the reviews of your product or service.

This is where you have to play a role in transforming visitors into customers. Your web page, reviews, highlights, and feed should look aesthetically pleasing and should contain genuine information so that it attracts eyeballs. Out of those 100 visits, it might be that only 500 follow your page and only 50 places any kind of order. This is how a sales funnel works.

So, in order to grow this number, you have to find ways so that more people move through the funnel to make a sale. This will help to establish your brand presence among your target audience.

2. Participating in networking events

Growing your small business takes a lot more than just creating your product. You will need to get the word out and about in the world so that people know about you and your service. A great way to do this is by attending networking events.

Keep an eye out for local seminars and conferences and make sure you attend them. Don’t be afraid to meet industry experts and tell a few about how your business is trying to make an impact. It will surely help you a lot in the most unexpected ways.

3. Diversify your business

Diversify your business

Amazon, the world's most valuable brand originally started out as an online portal that sold books. Soon, they diversified their platform and now it sells everything one can think of purchasing. That is the same rule you need to apply to grow your small business. Yes, I know the capital investment is usually low in small businesses but there is still so much that you can do.

For instance, if your business sells customized t-shirts, increase your service by customizing tote bags, hoodies, shoes, face masks, etc. create combo offers to attract more audience.

After you do that, market it properly. That’s how you can keep attached to your core business and keep adding to your service offerings.

4. Invest in systems

If you ask me, I have a lot of respect for you to start out this whole kickass business all by yourself.

But, my dear, if you start taking each and every responsibility on your own, it will become a tedious task for you. So, to make sure, the other tasks go smooth without creating much pressure for you, you need to invest in systems.

A business powered by powerful e-commerce software will keep track of operations, hence making ways for growth and expansion for your small business.

5. Improve your homepage

Apart from investing incredible SEO companies, one needs to organize their homepage in an effective manner. According to a report, 81% of retail shoppers first conduct research about that product before purchasing it.

If your feed does not have proper information about your product or is scattered, not backed by reviews it will be a huge turn-off for existing as well as new customers.

You don't need to have the most beautiful maintained feed, but you must have the proper information that helps convert viewers into consumers. That will work just fine.

6. Be financially secure

As the business grows (which it will) you will need to take care of your finances. Now, here comes the most tricky part.

Apart from that, you will also need to invest that money properly so that it grows well for the business, only then your business will become financially stable.

Over to you…
