As an online business, generating your first online sales is important.
Generating your first sale may be a turning point in your business life.
However, do not let this simple concept of first sale mislead you. The journey to get your first customer is probably a long way to go.
To make things easier, here are 25 ways that can generate your first sale, and so on.
1. Give free samples to influencers (influential people)
The internet is filled with influential bloggers, journalists, entrepreneurs, and vloggers (video bloggers) from different industries and niches.
Most of them have many followers in social media and loyal audience on their website.
By sending free samples of your products to these influencers, whether in your industry or in contact, can give you the opportunity to let them know that you value their work with small rewards for them. And also, perhaps your product can be introduced in one of their sites.
In this way, you can not only increase traffic and follower in social media, but also you can get attention from ekspert people in the industry that you live at this time. This Influencer will provide you with measurable results followed by increased share in social media, and can also improve the status of your products in the eyes of customers.
2. Start to blog
If you have not run a blog related to your store or product, then you have lost a lot of unlimited potential of content marketing.
By generating valuable and free content, you will create a level of trust in your brand and also provide interesting information to many people who read it. Nge-blog also gives you something to share in social media and help you to generate high rankings on Google.
A simple but highly effective way to get started with content marketing for your business. You can use this as a starting point to ask people about your products and industry. By using a blog, you can answer this question in an article.
For example, visitors go to Shopify blogs because they are interested in e-commerce and dropshipping over other topics. Because of this, we can create content with sentences like "how to sell online" and "how to dropship."

In addition, you can use your blog to offer tips, tutorials and resources related to the product and lifestyle around your product.
If you can create content that is interesting on a regular basis, you will begin to see the power of content marketing via share in social media, search engines, and so on.
3. Build an email list
Building an email list for marketing purposes is a much-needed thing.
In fact, based on research by MarketingSherpa, 60% of the marketers / marketers who follow the polls find that email marketing generates ROI (Return of Investment) for their company. When asked how much ROI estimates from an email marketing program for a company - overall this group reports with a value of 119% - a number is unlikely to be ignored by online shop owners.
By having an email list from your customer, this means you can send your information, products, and content into their personal mailbox.
Start building your email list today by entering an email subscription form where it can be seen on your website. This is a smart way to convince your visitors to sign up for your email list. Instead of saying "Join our Newsletter," you better offer them valuable benefits if they sign up. Skinny Teatox offers the opportunity to memnangkan free products every week, so they display the offer to encourage people to join soon.

4. Be a sponsor of an event
In some cases, sponsoring an event can waste time and resources too. To avoid this, you need to do some research.
First, you should make sure that you choose the right event to sponsor. Look for an event where people present are people who are interested in your product, and find how many people are present at the event.
Once you know about the event type and size, you can start sorting it by the amount of the fee.
You should not send a group of marketers / marketers who just put the table and provide a flyer. If there are potential customers present, you will need a more creative way to build relationships with them.
Demonstrate some of your interesting products to tell a story, get people talking, and provide prizes in places like free coupons and stickers in return for subscribing to email lists and following your social media.
These are some tips from Inc that can help you maximize you that you receive when sponsoring an event.

5. It's a good idea to interview an influential person in your industry
You still remember the importance of the marketing content described earlier? Interviewing influential people in an industry is an excellent example of how to create compelling content.
With this interview, you will be in a mutually beneficial situation. People who interview will get a lot of learning, and at the same time, the interviewee will get the publication of your blog.
Interview them with questions that relate not only their life and career, but also to the industry as a whole. This will ensure that fans of this influencer will recognize their personality, while others will judge from the experiences and advice / advice of the influencer.
A suitable example is the 500pc interview with Elena Shumilova. As a famous name in the world of photography, this interview can produce the perfect content for online photo vendors.
6. Run a PR show
If you want to speed up your first sale, doing a great homework can make it happen.
Just like the famous video, based on the same concept, PR performances have the potential to drive your brand to fame. If implemented well, you can accelerate the level of brand fame and get loyal customers in no time.
Usually a PR show will do something unusual, outrageous, funny, or simply unbelievable to get the media's attention.
If you do it right, your store can benefit from many links from reliable news sources, which is good for short term traffic and SEO in the long run.
No company can take good PR better than Virgin. Founder of Virgin, Richard Branson dressed like a bride, jumped from the casino roof, posed like a zulu, rode a tank to Fifth Avenue in NYC, and flew balloons around the world, and lots of other interesting news.

7. Experiment with using AdWords
AdWords is Google's most popular pay-per-click ad network that allows its users to place their ads virtually in every search result on Google pages, Youtube videos, and websites that work with Google. Who does not want to get into the top three by Google that can drive sales? This is the result that appears when you type "Samsung TV" on Google. The first result is Samsung paid advertisement.
The beauty of AdWords is at a very wide speed and reach. In just a few minutes, you can create and launch an ad campaign so that the text, images, or even videos of your ad can be seen by millions of people.
By using the AdWords campaign option, you can create targeted ads that are displayed with Google and clickable when people are browsing for specific keywords. In addition, your ads can also appear on websites and articles that contain similar keywords.
To get started with your advertising campaign, check out the Google AdWords beginner guide created The Next Web where you will learn how to build and launch a successful AdWords campaign.
8. Share commissions using affiliate marketing
Trying to sell your own product is a difficult task, so why not share commissions with others?
Affiliate marketing is where you let others market your product and send traffic to your website. In return, you pay them a percentage of the sales that come from their website. Such marketing efforts can be traced by giving them a unique hyperlink (which can be posted on their website) which contains an ID code at the end of the link, just for them.
For example, a website owner can post your affiliate link to a blue sweater product sold on your website. If one of the visitors from the website clicks on the link, and buys the blue sweater, then you just generate a sale, and since it's an affiliate, the website owner gets a percentage of the sales.
The success of affiliate marketing is highly dependent on the type of product you sell and the percentage of commissions you provide to your affiliate partner.

9. Selling wholesale or large-scale products to other retailers
Selling to consumers is common, but there's nothing wrong with selling wholesale to other retailers, especially if consumers who come not so much.
One of the main advantages of selling wholesale is to increase cash flow. Maybe with this you will only sell with a thin margin, but you replace it with the quantity of product sales.
In addition, if you sell your own product, you basically allow other companies and resellers to market your products, and spread the word about your goods. In other words, indirectly selling wholesalers can increase your sales to consumers.
To learn more about this, you can follow the guidelines on the wholesale distribution business here.
10. Announce a Press Release
Many online stores pushed press releases to attract media attention, but failed.
The secret to getting attention is simple. Do not announce bad, ugly press releases !!
First of all, make sure your news is good and valuable. Do not expect a great response unless you provide interesting information to read to the public. Also, press releases should be presented in a concise and professional manner, and not too monotonous.

11. Consider the analysis of your website
Reviewing and acting on an analysis on a website is paramount. The treatment of every website visitor from the time they come in to get out can help you understand why you are selling an item and more importantly, why do not you sell it.
Your website analysis will show you what your customers are doing on your site, including which pages they enter, how long they stay on a page, and which route they take to leave your site. Sometimes, some tools will display additional information such as how often your customers visit your website.
And this does not cost money. Google Analytics is a free service that lets you measure traffic on your website in great detail.
This is an example of Miracle Berry. You can keep traffic steady until early January when you are big jump. They look at the data and see this jump coming from StumbleUpon, which can be a good indicator of social networking channels, both organically and from paid placements.

After you launch your online store and fight for the first sale, it's a good idea to give your time to analyze traffic in Google Analytics. You will never know what you will learn later.
If you want to get into the analytic world, you can see the Google Analytics guide here.
12. Run a survey
Learning the bitter points and desires of consumers can actually help you make the right decision in the future.
Consumer surveys are a great tool to get honest feedback. Unlike your friends and family, consumers have no qualms about hurting your feelings by criticizing your site design or your marketing practices.
To run a survey, you can use applications like Survey Monkey and Qualaroo to create online surveys.

13. Make a network in a forum
Discussion forums are a great place to give tips and advice, answer questions, and get one or two customers.
Use Google to search for active forums related to the products you sell. When you write on the forum, make sure you do not break the rules in the forum while trying to promote your brand and product. Know the limits and restrictions. Using avatars and profile pages to promote your brand in a forum is usually allowed in the rules.
Maybe you will be tempted to continue to write and promote your brand continuously, but still professional. There are no forums that will tolerate constant promotions or posts that are full of links to your website. Besides, acting like that will damage your brand in the eyes of users from other forums. So keep it simple by writing so people will see your activity, but not spam.
Maybe you can start by actively in some famous forums, both in Indonesia and abroad.
14. Cooperate with other retailers
Sometimes it's good if we seek support from others.
You can start by finding a few complementary (not competing) retailers who agree to promote and support each other. This is a great simple way to get traction in many ways.
For example, if you run an online clothing store, you can ask for help from a store that sells jewelry and shoes or sandals. Basically, the stores you work with can work together to promote each other's brands and share suggestions, but not to create a conflict of interest.
You can choose to keep this relationship more privacy and stay small, or you can publish this partnership to attract more members to build a community of mutual support for online store owners.
Try the example of The ecommerce Group. They operate via Facebook groups, they share advice on more than 2,500 members, provide feedback, and provide help whenever they can.

15. Establish the right relationship
It's not about what you know, but about who you know. Building the right relationship, both online and offline, can help you to succeed.
No matter what kind of product you sell or which industry you work for, there will always be people who think business is the same as you are out there, and you need to be friends with them.
How to build relationships with other people can be with people who are closely related to your business, but not a direct competitor.
For example, suppliers, blogs, and websites are focused on your industry. They can give you feedback and offer discount promotions.

16. Offer a contest or giveaway
Everyone will love free stuff, and if you're looking for ways to build trust when trying to increase sales, contests or giveaway can help you.
Contests or giveaway not only help you build valuable inbound links (backlinks), but also the right way to show your potential and reliable customers.
It is important to remember that you do not have to start from something big. Tease Tea is a tea online shop that runs a simple contest on their Facebook page
