Default I need help would someone train me please

I'm so frustrated! I have been in business for years and I can't get customers to commit to orders. I spend so much time and energy on getting mockups, design copy s, and I even make up designs for people. They never follow through. I show my stuff and every one likes it but no buys. I hAve a website I've never gotten a sale. I contact dance studio's, schools, and others nothing. It's like I'm doomed or something. I'm ready just to give up I have no more money to put towards this business. I need some sales and business training and advice. I would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out.

I would advise on following up with the clients you send quotes to. I also would not offer to do free mockups. We quote our clients and if there is any work art wise, that needs done, we have them pay before we start on the mockups or art. We then need approval of the mockup/art before we get started printing.

Agree with Renee and Binki. Been there, done that.....I quit doing mock-ups or any artwork until an order and deposit is placed...period. The quote I give is based upon the information they give me. I let them know that if, during the art/design process they make changes that additional charges could apply. You don't go to McD's order your lunch and pay for it after you get it do you???

That means you have to attract customers first,ask their opinion about the product and design.take feedback from them,it helps to correct the things you did wrong.

Hello,

Agree with sinGN. First gather reviews of new mock up by social media.

Be Active, Follow the latest marketing trends. Offer best price in the market, Run sales like 50% off for first 20 purchase. Use email marketing, Run contest on website.
