Stimulating Sales

What is it that gives business life and vitality?  Yes, sales.  Without sales, our businesses will dry up and die.  On the other hand, a healthy growth in sales means an increase in profits.  Yeah, we business owners spend a lot of time watching for signs of growth, and plotting to make it happen.  Here are 5 sure-fire ways to get customers to shell out the bucks before they leave your place of business.

1.  Tantalize Their Emotions
When was the last time you bought a candy bar?  Exactly what is it about chocolate that makes us waste perfectly good money on something that lasts less than five minutes?  Yep, it’s the feeling of satisfaction we feel after we’ve eaten the sweet morsels.  

Everything consumers purchase is for one purpose… to satisfy some emotional feeling they are looking for.  Don’t believe it?  Why do we buy cars?  …security, to show off, personal satisfaction?  Sure, we all want to look good and know that we’ll be able to get where we’re going safely.

Take advantage of the emotional pull purchases have on your customers, and dramatize.  Paint word pictures that will enhance to pleasant feelings that come with the purchase you are trying to get them to make.  

2.  Scare The Heck Out of Them
What are your customers going to lose if they don’t buy your product?  No, we don’t always have to stick with the pretty pictures that leave us all warm and fuzzy.  Fear is as effective of a  motivor as pleasure… sometimes greater.

Do you have fire alarms installed in your house?  A dramatic mental picture of waking up in the night and not being able to rescue you child isn’t at all pretty, but will be much more likely to motivate you to invest in a fire alarm system than any pretty picture ever would.

Don’t hesitate to use a little negative influence if your product calls for it.  Many people fear what they could lose more than they get excited about what they could gain.

3.  Keep Buying A Simple “Yes” or “No” Choice
Are you planning a special sale?  Take care to promote only one of each type of product at a time.  Decisions can make the buying process more complicated and cost you sales.  Yeah, the buyer who can’t make up his mind often leaves without taking anything with him… that’s money out of your pocket!

Do you have several related items you want to offer?  Combine them into one package and watch your profit skyrocket!

4.  Make It Easy To Buy
Several years ago, I found myself spending my lunch hour in a long line at the nearby fast food restaurant.  After patiently waiting for more than 30 minutes, I placed my order only to discover they didn’t accept debit cards.  Now, there’s no feeling of frustration quite like spending the best part of your lunch time waiting in line with a yammering stomach, only to be denied.

Your customers want to be able to pay in whatever way they choose when they walk to the cash register.  If you want to attract the most customers, be sure they can pay using their favorite method.

Florist In Thailand

Most of us have probably used the large floral networks in this country to send flowers to people in another city or state. We don’t usually call up the actual florist that delivers the flowers, but rather we make the purchase through a network, such as 1-800-FLOWERS and they forward the order on to a flower store that is local to the area where it will be delivered. If you are thinking of sending flowers to Thailand, you may come up with some roadblocks with the large domestic companies, and you will have to look a little further to get those blooms overseas. Whether you want to send flowers to Bangkok (the capital), or any of the many popular tourist destinations throughout the country, you can now do it.

First of all, when you are sending flowers to Thailand, the internet is your best friend. There is no point in even picking up a phone, because even if you were able to call a florist in Thailand, you might have language difficulties and they may also have trouble running their credit card. Most American banks are now blocking transactions such as this, so you have to deal with a domestic company that processes the funds.

Also, when you send flowers to Thailand, you may have a dream of a large bouquet of red roses going to your sweetie, but the cost might be too much. Roses and many flowers that we commonly send in this country are not often grown in the tropical areas of Thailand, so you will be given other types of flowers from which to choose. It doesn’t matter though, because as all women know, it is the thought that counts.

If you have a friend, relative, or sweetheart living in Bangkok or anywhere throughout Thailand, you can use the internet to find international floral networks that serve this region. Once you do, you will be able to choose a floral arrangement and have it send the very same day.

Thailand Villas

Thailand is a land of exotic locales, stunning views, mouth-watering cuisine, lush flora and rare fauna and has lately topped the list of favorite holiday destinations. When in Thailand, there is no better option to stay than in a villa. Thailand Villas are resplendent in luxury and grandeur and are any day a better option than hotels. Thailand Villas are an amalgam of contemporary and traditional culture under one roof. Generally a villa would include 3 to 5 bedrooms, pavilions, magnificent pools, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living rooms and beautifully landscaped gardens to spend some peaceful time in.

The investment potential of Thailand is on an upsurge and it is the best time to invest in a property there. The government in Thailand is focusing on a 10% growth of annual tourism and is taking aggressive measures to achieve it. The thriving tourism industry is one of the major contributors to the rising investment in Thailand property. Recently, many new luxury resorts have come up and are attracting tourists like never before. You may buy a villa for your personal use as well as for renting it out during holiday season to reap maximum benefits from your property.

Villas in Thailand are of various types and you may pick one according to your preference and budget. Private villas are a private Thailand property and are located on individual plots of land. Some of these villas demand a security deposit to be made in order to ensure complete safety of the premises, but you may get some villas that do not demand any such security. Most villas have an excellent in-house staff for cleaning, washing, cooking, laundry etc who are available at your service throughout your stay. The recent property boom in Thailand has made investing in a villa here as a lucrative option. However, it would be wise to investigate the ownership, laws, pricing, locality, amenities and facilities of the villa before you invest any money there.

Villas are preferred by people who indulge in luxurious surroundings and have the money to afford the luxury. Hence, this profile of your forthcoming customer has to be given due importance when you look for villas. Compromising on the open spaces and quality would only do you harm as your villa would not be suitable for the person who may rent it. As you are catering to a niche market who splurges on luxury, it is imperative to buy a villa that does justice to the tastes and preferences of a prospective customer. It would not be prudent to cut corners as it would affect your clientele. Invest in a villa that is luxurious and caters to all the whims and fancies of a customer. This would ensure a steady rental all year round and would give you returns all your life.
