Limited time offers are very useful in attracting customers. This offer will only be available for the next 48 hours, and then its price will increase is the kind of phrases that are irresistible for the client. The discount does not have to be high:it is enough to give you the feeling that something is saved. A saved penny is going to instill a sense of satisfaction in the client. This is going to help you sell more.

8. Add Benefits:

The offer of the extended warranty is an excellent option to convince the customers.There is a sense of security due to this particular reason. The client is going to recover the investment they did in case something happens to the product in the given time frame. This makes the customer feel secured. If you cannot offer a guarantee, then opt for an additional service:for example, free installation, free service, or free home assistance for year or more.

8. Test The Market:

The facilities offered by technology today allows you to do more for a little cost. Earlier these tasks used to drain your finances. Test your offers, present them in different versions, with different prices, and measure the market response. Do not assume anything as it might lead to missing an opportunity.
