You may have been wondering why you’re not making enough sales like you should. If no one is buying your products or services, then something needs to be done asap to improve the situation.
There could be a number of different factors contributing to your sales slump, which can be detrimental to one’s bottom line.
In my last article, I wrote on how to discover if you’re on the wrong path of life. You can read up here
Now Let’s get started
1. You Don’t Have a Unique Selling Proposition
Even if you’ve got the right niche, you need to have a Unique Selling Proposition (USP) for your product & services. USP mainly and clearly differentiates you from your competition, which is important because how you approach your USP (and how you sell your difference to customers) will determine the success of your product or service. Sometimes, the USP could sometimes be having a lower price. Other times it can be that your product is having a strong quality over that of your competitors. Whatever your USP is, you need to find it and embrace it so that your customers can as well.
2. Your Product/Service is Not as Great as You Think
Normally, we all believe we are extra perfect at what we do, but sometimes we can be like a newbie when it comes to our products or services. If you believe you have the best product or offer the best service on earth, well, dead that thought. (You don’t.) Having this mindset sometimes can be too demanding because you feel like your amazing product or service should be talk of the town and stuff. You begin to ask questions like why can’t people see how great my product or service is?! It’s not that your product or service is misunderstood, it’s that you need to step back and reassess the true value of your product or service to your customers, and then market it appropriately.
3. You Haven’t Built Customer Trust Yet
Trust is not attained easily, especially online buying and selling. If you can’t provide that good experience, your customers won’t buy or will stop buying from you. They’ll lose trust in you. On the other-side, by giving your clients a great experience, it will build that level of trust and make them want to do business with you again. This builds into customer loyalty, then reffeeals come in from there. From there, your business would definitely sky rocket from there. You just have to put in all the work and be consistent.
4. Your Product/Service Isn’t Getting To The Right Audience
You must know who your audience is so you can feed them with what they need to know, and then proceed to sell to them. Getting through to the right target audience is very sacrosant. It could be the reason why the product or service you think is so brilliant isn’t selling the way you think it ought to be. Customers want to be catered to, meaning they expect brands to understand what they want and then give it to them. Once you understand what your customers want, you can deliver on their expectations and provide them with something seen as valuable to them.
5. Price factor
Price can be the determining factor why clients may let your product slip by, even though they might like to own it. Entrepreneurs should understand that the pricing of a product is an essential element, which determines the degree of success a product is likely to achieve. It doesn’t mean, however, that they should lower the price of a product to appease everyone. Price may not be a factor if the product belongs to a list of necessary goods. However, consumers have the option to take a stand when they make high involvement purchases.
Consumers will like to think twice before buying goods such as a designer outfit, television sets, or other expensive electronic goods and gadgets. They will consider price as one of the factors, before making the final purchase. If the price of your product isn’t in a range that they can afford, they will be happy to go for one that is.
Entrepreneurs should, therefore, identify who their customers are, and market their products accordingly. They should also keep the prices very competitive. And if in case, they feel that the quality of their product is far superior to the rest in their category, then, they may keep the prices up but will have to indulge in an extensive advertising campaign to make it noticeable. Remember, buyers can be very choosy when it comes to shopping, and if you don’t project your product well enough, you will, perhaps, lose out on the market, and the business that could be.
Then That is it!
