1. Custom Products
One of the best ways to get your new business name out there is by putting it on products. Hats, sunglasses, mousepads, coffee cups, and even shirts are great products to have imprinted with your logo, business address and also web address. With the help of a pad printing business, you can place a bulk order to use as door prizes and giveaways.
2. Raffle Drawings for Gift Cards
Customers like to feel like they’re getting something for nothing, and when you hold raffles and giveaways just for walking through the door, that’s what you’ll give them. Give away things like gift cards for your business or maybe an affiliate business. Teaming up with other companies in the area or bringing in a specialty company for a one-time deal can also be great ways to promote your products and make some lasting business partnerships in the process.
3. Keep the Sales Going
You may want to consider slashing the prices of some of your favorite products the day you open. Consider promoting these prices for the first week of business making it difficult for people to stay away. Make sure your store looks the best and have plenty of helpful salespeople around to minimize gridlock inside the shop.
