Where to go from there, what product to sell, these are some of the questions that entrepreneurs looking for ways to grow their business often find themselves asking. Growing your business in new areas could be terrifying, but once carried out with care, it can skyrocket the growth of your business.
Customers are your ultimate guide to the path of promotion. Take into consideration your first product. Gauge the reaction of your customers to your previous product. This tactic is extremely beneficial if you are considering launching a new product belonging to the same family as your previous products.
If you plan to go for a unique product, it is suggested you research the market first. As much as the idea of bringing a ‘unique’ and different product in the market, it is usually these products that end being causing irreversible loss to the enterprise. Ideas always come from previous ideas, hence researching the market for products falling into the same line as your new product would be beneficial and would help you carry out your plan with great care and intricacy.

Giveaways or ’freebies’ as they go by nowadays might sound like a controversial idea for business promotion, whereas it is the opposite. Freebie is a marketing strategy that does free promotion of your business and helps you build an audience to sell your future products.
Giveaways sure wouldn’t make a millionaire right away, but it’s the psychology behind it that seems to work. Human beings are emotional, even when they shop. People usually make their purchases based on how they feel about the product instead of the sense it makes. Studies done by authentic sources have proved that people would go for a free product that is worth way less than a discount. Better gain free than losing something to gain more; that is how shoppers’ brains work. Taken as an ‘act of kindness’ by the consumer, they would develop a liking for your brand which of course leads to more sales.

If you have tried every other strategy to promote your product and failed, giveaway might be your last hope.
Promoting your business is proportional to promoting your products. Thanks to the internet, one does not need actual brick-walled stores that alone cost a fortune to house your products. Retail customers can be easily reached through e-stores analytics, and better yet, the e-malls.

If you don’t have a website or an e-store, create one. It usually does not cost much; especially if you are doing it yourself (you can create a website even if you have absolutely no technical knowledge). The Internet provides advertisements, which would directly lead to your home site and boost sales.
Another way is to approach online shopping platforms. Consumers viewing a certain category are shown all products, which include yours.
