How to encourage customers to buy from you

Often before someone will buy from you, they need some reassurance that they are making the right decision for them, doing the right thing investing their money, time and attention with you.
How can you help them with that?
Think about it. When you make a purchase, you 'sample' the goods by going into the shop, feeling the atmosphere, taking in the shop appearance, talking to a well informed, cheerful (or not!) sales person who can confim or shatter your illusions of the product, see the product first hand in all its glory (or not which will tarnish it in your mind forever more), see the reactions of others that you resonate with making similair purchase decisions, even the ease of the transaction payment and the packaging makes a statement that you do or do not resonate with. All of these interactions happen in a space of a few minutes and eitherr reassure you that your purchase is right for you or not.
Free samples, free consultations, free seminars and free demonstrations, free brochures, free newsletters and anything else you can think of that will help a potential customer experience you/your creations before purchase.
All of these help a potential buyer understand what it will feel like when they do actually purchase from you and whether it feels good to them and serves how they wish to see themselves.
Provide them with enough information and experience as you possibly can so that the next logical step for them is to make theirr purchasing decisions as justified, looked forward to and as easy as possible.

A fresh start for 2015!

Hello creatives - although a tad late I still wish you a Happy New Year & hope that you can make all your creative dreams come true in 2015!

Hitting the ground runing in 2015, I've made some tweaks to the way I work around here. You may have seen some changes on the blog over the last few days - up until now I have been running seperate blogs for my creative work (Vintage Celebrations) and my scrapbooking industry updates -and with divine guidance I thought the time had come to house them all under one roof so you have access to craft tutorials, handmade business marketing & sales ideas, industry updates and other (hopefully) inspiring information all in one place!

So now i aim to bring you a mixed bag each week of creativity, business acumen & experience & other things I think may entertain and delight you along my creative journey. So here's toa  fresh start in 2015 - cheers!
