How Can You Sell More This tip is all about how you can dramatically improve your sales by increasing the attractiveness and appeal of your offering. With so many competitors offering similar products and services, how do we make our offering irresistible?

Many businesses owners immediately answer this question by DISCOUNTING their products or services. While discounting has its place and can be highly effective, it can also be very counter-productive. Discounting erodes your margins, can be easily replicated without your competitor appearing as a copy-cat, and depending on your offering and positioning, discounting can adversely affect the perceived value of your offering and your brand -for example, you do not see Porsche or Rolex having 50% Off Sales!

So, if we don't discount, what can we do? The answer is simple, and yet amazingly effective. Instead of discounting you can give BONUSES! By giving bonus products or services you are giving your prospect greater buying power and far greater value for money!
