    If your shop is not doing well or mediocre then some might say "Whatever your doing now, stop it, and do the the opposite"

    The only way to attract new customers or those top end customers is to know what they want.
    Star by going to the high end business from each section There is always one shop who is more expensive then their competitors. Be it a restaurant, electrical goods, kids clothing etc. look at their promotion and marketing strategies. When people buy something with them, do they get personal details that they may use for direct marketing.
    Do they do follow up calls. etc

    Just this week we started using facebook and sent an email campaign for the first time. We are going to try and embrace the technology to attract the younger market.

    I would love to go to one of Kristie's seminars on all this, as it is quite new for me.
    The thing about facebook, twitter, tumblr etc, is that they are free to setup and do (just some time).

    Doing something, anything is better then staring at the door.

    Website is working away… business is growing…

    Two enquiries from the US and one from the UK this week....... not bad for a business that is on an island in the Atlantic.

    The two in the US from Universities have gone for approval to purchase.

    The UK one would not be practical for me to handle, due to shipping cost and the bulk of the products, I pointed the person in the direction of two companies in the UK that can help her.

    These overseas customers are way beyond what I had expected from my website.
