Counting on Sales from Foot Traffic Doesn’t Work Anymore

There was a time (a few years ago) when a sale was actually quite easy. People were much quicker to open their wallets and spend without thinking.  There seems to be a psychological barrier now and it takes a bit longer to make the decision to buy.

Retailers are finding that on some days, it’s dead, affecting sales.  Frustrated with the lack of traffic flow,  retail space owners are contacting their management office requesting they do something to increase it.

An ex-Estee Lauder Cosmetic saleswoman has shared “You are going to have to hire salespeople who know how to clientele.  By that, I mean they have to start building their client list and become best friends with them. They have to invite clients whenever you do an event or have a sale or do anything special.  They must work for every single sale.  Look around [the store she was in]. There’s no one here. You can’t count on foot traffic, especially in this economy. Anyway, counting on foot traffic is so 1980’s. That doesn’t work anymore.”


Personalize each of your sales in order to create a loyal, long-term following. Every single person that walks into your space and buys something should receive a personalized email from you within two weeks.  Every single potential customer should hear from you in a personalized email.  Be happy to work for every single sale.  This includes website sales.

Time and energy?  Yes, but it’s an investment in a longer-term selling process to get your “first circle” of customers excited and buzzing about you.  Then they will tell their friends who will tell their friends.

So what will you do to begin personalizing your sales?  Here’s a suggestion to do the following:

1. Get the contact info of EVERY SINGLE PERSON who purchases from you… via website, craft fairs, or otherwise.  If you talk to them, make sure to write down something personal about them.

2. Contact them 2 weeks after they purchase to ask them how they are enjoying your product/service.  Personalize it (this is where your note-taking is invaluable!)

3. Contact them every month via a newsletter, phone call, or email (don’t be a car salesman about it… provide something valuable… Give, give, get!)

12 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity

I have been a business owner working from my home office for many years now, since 1994.  It seems when I was just starting out, I had more self-discipline.  Each day, I worked on the most difficult or tedious tasks first, wasn’t as distracted by internet surfing, I remember being much more productive.  And now I have to struggle to stay productive.  Too much time on the internet that isn’t always business-related.  I seem to be taking care of the easiest and least important tasks first so what should be the priorities aren’t being treated as such.

I came across the following article on Lifehack with ideas that are relevant and for me, do-able.  I’ll start tommorrow :).

Do you want to end each day feeling like you’ve accomplished everything you set out to do?  Here are 12 strategies to boost your output exponentially:


Set productivity targets
Be clear on what exactly you want to achieve.
Maintain a work environment conducive to productivity
If you feel at home, you will be more inspired to get things done.
Have an organized workspace
If you have a messy workspace, you will feel disorganized and sluggish.
Put first things first
Put the important things first before anything else.
Time box your tasks
Time boxing refers to putting your tasks within fixed time slots.
Have a separate list for incoming tasks
Use a single list for urgent tasks, and another for other tasks.
Upgrade your skills
Your limitations in output come from limitations in your skill level.
Know your motivation triggers
When were the times when you felt inspired? How can you integrate this into your daily life to reinforce your motivation?
Utilize time pockets
Time pockets are the little bits of time you have in between one event to the next — waiting for buses, waiting for appointments to start. Have some ready activities for these.
Hold yourself accountable
Progress tracking is essential to know how you are doing.
Wake up early
If you are up before most of the world, you will be motivated to maintain that lead.
Remember To Rest
It’s about quality of work produced, not quantity of hours spent.
