2011-04-24 by EPR Staff
Incresase Sales

Sales is all about telling customers what they want and then giving them what they actually need. The key is to get inside their head of the customer and figure out what they want to hear. I worked on the floor at Sears selling washing machines 7 years ago. When I first started I would try to up sell the higher priced washing machines by telling them about cool features like steam cycle and capacity. Almost always the customer would purchase the cheaper one. After a few weeks of crappy pay checks, I started asking the customer: "What happened with... Read More >

A press release (also known as a news release, a media release, or a press statement) is a written, or recorded, communication directed at the members of the media to announce a newsworthy event – be it a product launch, service, company news, employment, etc. Historically, traditional press releases targeted reporters at newspapers, magazines, television stations, and radio stations.

The First Day of Spring 2016 may not come for another few months (with the March equinox on March 20), but savvy marketers know to begin their sales campaigns early. Never mind that Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria, do celebrate March 1st as the first day of spring - this only has to do with ancient traditions from these specific countries, traditions that, ironically, have a lot to do with marketing and sales too. Today, Romanians buy flowers, gifts and mărțișoare for the women in their lives, and so do Moldavians, and Bulgarians, although, in Bulgaria the small symbol of the... Read More >
