Online Dropship Sales Sluggish? Offer Promotions and Coupons!

 

slow dropship salesIf things seem to be a bit sluggish for you lately in your online dropship store or other ecommerce business, maybe you should consider having some good promotions and offering discount coupons to beef up your sales.

While many ecommerce entrepreneurs go heavy on promotions, discounts and coupons during the holidays, some tend to get a little slack about these things during the rest of the year.

The “Dog Days” of summer are notoriously slow for many merchants both online and in brick and mortar stores, so using promotions to stir up some shopping interest is just good business sense!

First of all, if you sell anything that can be used or worn by kids going back to school, this is a great time!

In many parts of the US, school will start back next month, and many parents as well as students will begin shopping for school supplies and clothing early.

To get the word out about your promotions, send out a newsletter specifically geared toward whatever discounts or coupons you are offering.
Make sure to put the details and the best and most appealing points above the fold, or on the top half of the page.

Besides sending out a newsletter, make sure your website is up to date with the details of the promotion and/or coupons.

One of the best things you can do when running a promotion is to make it time sensitive!

Make sure people understand that your promotion, discount or coupons are only going to be good for a limited amount of time.

It helps to have a calendar with the dates circled on your web page.

If you run display ads about your promotion, be sure to have appropriate landing pages so that visitors who click on one of your ads goes to a page with details about the promotion you are offering.

Promotions, discounts and coupons are fantastic ways to beat the summer doldrums and boost your profits!
