rid of excess inventory, gain new or repeat customers, and
increase your sales. Most businesses pick a theme for their
sale, like a Halloween Sale. Below are six unique sales
themes you could use:

Every online business has low visitor and sales day through
the week. My days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. You
could sell your products or services for cheaper to increase
and sales on your slow days. You could have this advertised
right on your web site.


Time Of The Day Sale

Periodically , pick out a time of the day like 5 to 7 pm to
lower your prices. With online sales you need tell people
the time zone. Announce your scheduled times ahead of
time in your e-zine. This will give people enough time to
plan when they will visit your web site.


Product Or Service Of The Day Sale

Each day offer different product or service at a lower price.
This will draw people back to your web site everyday. This
is a high traffic generating sale. If you don't have a lot of
products and services you may want to run the sale weekly
or monthly.


Niche Group Sale

Hold a sale for a niche groups of people. Students, senior
citizens, single people etc. This really works if your
introducing a new product or service for the first time to a
new target audience. Announce your sale in a targeted
e-zine, e-mail discussion groups, message boards, etc.


Holiday Or Seasonal Sale

These type of sales let your visitors and customers know

your web site. You could upload holiday and seasonal
graphics. Change the color of your text to match. Get in the

People relate these kind of sales to getting a bargain or
saving money. You could offer a buy one get one for half
off sale, a buy two get the third one free, two for the price
of one sale, etc.
