This time of year, many businesses large and small offer year end promotions of some kind. This is often done as a way to pump up revenues before the calendar year ends. Sometimes, you’ll see them at the end of quarters too. For example, Finest Shops.Com is currently offering the ‘Gold Package’ shopping cart system with setup fee waived (the setup fee is usually $100 so that’s a pretty decent incentive). So if you’ve been on the fence about buying some product or service, check to see if there’s a promotion going on. You might save yourself some cash.
On the flip side, you can implement promotions in your home-based business as well. And you don’t have to wait for the year end. Just make sure you offer something of relative value to your customers. It’s a great way to build customer loyalty and pump up your sales at the same time.
