Dear Impact plus community, Does anyone have any sales ideas that have worked for them that could potentially work for me. I need help in generating sales?

Jimmy, I know I'm late to this thread, but one piece of "gold" that most of us sit on and don't utilize is our phone's contact list. When I was a business owner myself and just getting started, I too had sales issues. 

One of the things that really helped get me started was reaching out, one by one to all of the contacts on my phone. The secret for me was not to "sell" my contacts but rather to ask them if they knew anyone looking for what I was selling, or if they could refer me over 3-4 people they knew that could be interested.

Not only did I reconnect with people I have not spoken with, but half of them gave me 1 referral... some even gave me 10, and some even turned into clients.

This led to enough business to get me started, especially since the leads were "warm" and were FREE... except for the thank you gifts send to my contacts that led to the business :)

I hope this helps!

Mark Baratto  , I don't have any business contacts in my phone to reach out to. And I even reached out to my audience, for instance , the churches to see if they need a tech guy or assessment and nothing.

Jimmy Beasley  I don't think they have to be business contacts for what Mark is suggesting. Even just friends and acquaintances who may know of someone who needs your services could be helpful.

Stephanie Baiocchi   I have no friends and accquaintances what so ever.

Jimmy Beasley  that's not true - you have us! You haven't even asked me if I know of anyone. I'm not very involved with any churches but I will of course keep your business in mind if I hear of anyone needing your services.

Stephanie Baiocchi , that is not what I meant by that response. I was referring to where I live at I have no friends and accquitances.

Jimmy Beasley  does your business only service churches local to where you live?
