6 Ultimate Trade Show Tips For SalesPresenter

See below the top 6 ultimate trade show tips, using these combined tips will provide you with that extra edge when preparing for your upcoming Trade Shows. 1. Updating iPads - During the show you want to have the newest update to ensure your iPad is at its optimal performance for a smoother ordering process, simply go into system settings and make sure there aren't any updates available. IMPORTANT: Apple has a tendency to release an update during the bigger shows. Please do not update DURING your show. 2. Updating SalesPresenter - Whilst updating your iPad you also want to update SalesPresenter, this will download all the recent features to help your sales process. Simply click into the App Store and view updates to see if there are any available. 3. Download data - Prior to the show make sure your company's data is already downloaded onto the iPad. It may take a while to update so you don't want to do it when the show starts. Go to the download section within SalesPresenter and press 'Download from cloud', this will update stock figures, products, customers and more. 4. Stand information - If you're a premium support customer and attending Harrogate Christmas and Gift, Home and Gift or Spring and Autumn Fair, you will need to let us know what stand number you are located at, this makes it quicker for us to resolve any issues whilst you are there.

Why Use E-commerce For Your Business?

Why use an e-commerce store for your company? E-commerce is an online selling network. This effective way of buying allows the customer to create a bulk order online, this, therefore, cuts out the hassle and is a quicker and easier transaction. Meaning you don't even need reps to sell your product. Benefits  The main benefit of using an e-commerce store is that it benefits the business and the customer. The wholesaler can reduce their prices of the products that they sell which will allow the consumer to purchase more stock at a more suitable price. The wholesaler can sell more products at a reduced price but will gain profit from this as it benefits both parties.   Also by using an online e-commerce store, it cuts out the unwanted wasted time. Without the e-commerce store wholesalers and consumers used a paperback catalogue, this wastes time that both companies can't afford. An advantage of an e-commerce store is that once you have placed your order the price is automatically calculated.   Types of e-commerce Business to consumer - is the most common type of e-commerce. This type of e-commerce is when a customer purchases a product from the wholesaler's website. For example; Homeware products from Home-ware business. Business to business - is where companies sell to other companies over the internet. An example of this would be our company Blue Alligator because we as a company sell products to other companies (SalesPresenter and CloudCart) Consumer to business - is similar to the business to business as in companies selling to other companies but the consumer is a retailer. For example; a consumer would sell a product or a service to a wholesaler that will benefit them from it and also the consumer because it will generate a good business deal. We hope you now know the…

5 Ways To Sell To First Time Buyers

 5 ways to sell to first-time buyers First-time buyers can come in at any stage of the sales funnel. They might just be browsing online or they might be at your checkout thinking whether they should make the purchase before all the budget is gone. Let's face it most people like spending money to increase their own sales BUT, if they're a first-time buyer normally they want more information before they splash the cash. Here are the top 5 ways to sell to first time buyers: 1. Testimonials - Giving potential customer testimonials and even product reviews to look either for one specific product or a whole company overview. This will push first-time buyers over the edge if your testimonial is compelling. Make the review/testimonial short and effective, highlight stats and figures such as ".... has increased our sales by 50%" this will keep your first-time buyers engaged. Ask existing customers to get on board with good reviews, at the end of the day buyers still like to see what other buyers thought of the product. 2. Demonstrations - Letting a potential customer see a demonstration of your product/service will show them exactly how it works. This will be valuable if competitors haven't got the same thing in place, you will be way more trustworthy towards a company if you see exactly what the product/service does. 3. Remarketing - This is where you pay for "cheap" advertisement for example; you go to buy a pair of shoes from Amazon but end up cancelling. Later that day similar shoes display on another website such as Facebook, they then appear on another website etc. Remarketing allows you to target customers that have visited your website before. This will then follow your buyer around their searches which costs £0.00 until they re-click that ad and even so it's…
