Can a business ever really make too much money? If you ask any business owner, the answer will likely be no. Who wouldn’t want to make more profits for all the hard work they perform day in and day out? Today, this is possible to do, thanks to the world wide web. The internet is a great place to showcase your products and services to the market.

If you’re a brick and mortar or own an online storefront, you can use the following tips to help drive more revenue.

Upgrade Your Website Design

Are you using a website that was built years ago? Then chances are, it doesn’t have a responsive design. This is crucial today because people are using a mix of smartphone and laptop computers. You  need to ensure people are able to visit your website no matter the device they’re on. This will boost traffic and decrease bounce rates.

It’s better to have one site that is responsive than to have two websites, one dedicated to mobile and the other to desktop. Google loves sites that are mobile friendly and responsive.

Cross Promote On Social Media

You have a blog your creating content for. How will people know about it and find it? Social media is the place to be if you want to spread word about your content and brand. You can use it to drive traffic to your website, where people can find your products and services.

Use your blog to your advantage by writing content that’s valuable to your audience and will actually drive user engagement. The more clicks, likes and shares the better.

Connect with Influencers

Teaming up with influencers in your industry can also help put your business on the map. Try to connect with industry movers and shakers who have large followings. One day, they can promote your business or products to their followers, helping build recognition of your brand. You can also write guest posts for their blogs, providing them with free content and in exchange you’re getting more traffic to your site.

Offer Promotions on Social Channels

What better way to increase sales than with a promotion. People go online to do research and to find the best deals on products and services. Help them find a great deal by posting your coupons and sales info on your social media pages.

Create Contests

The internet is also abuzz with different types of challenges and contests. You can host your own contest for others to join. You can give away free products or services to those who win. Make it interesting and fun. For instance, you can host a photo contest where people submit images of themselves using your products. Make sure the rules are nice and clear.

Create Business Cards

Yes, business cards are still much-needed in today’s digital world. You never know when you’re out and about and need to give someone your business card. This should have your email address, website URL and a list of your products and services. You can also design other printable marketing collateral at Shutterfly.
