Boosting your sales in 2018 is at the top of everyone’s mind. Customers are using technology more in their daily lives and anything you can do to align your business with this trend will put you ahead of the competition. Below are three easy ways to increase sales.
Be An Educator
In 2018, don’t be an estimator or order taker. Be an educator. Today we live in a world where many people research items before making a purchase. With that being said, your team should educate consumers. This can be done by updating your website with a blog where you share the answers to questions people are asking Siri, Alexa or simply typing into a search. Take the time to answer questions over the phone, explain what it all means and what the outcomes are that your customers can expect. In return, doing this will give your business an edge over competitors.
Your customers aren’t the only ones that are embracing technology in 2018 to streamline their lives. Businesses are adding mobile forms, dispatching, and many other workforce management systems to boost productivity and increase revenue. No matter what industry you are in, technology is available. Don’t be afraid to add systems to your 2018 roadmap.
Implement Remote Teams
With technology as the backbone of your business, you are poised to implement remote teams. In 2015, the average American commute was at nearly 27 minutes each way. Multiplying that out, 27 twice a day, five days a week, 50 weeks each year — that’s 220 hours commuting every year. Implementing a remote workforce is certain to improve your team’s productivity. According to reports, this could be by 13 percent!
