Keep enough supplies

To keep up with the rising demand, shop owners should maintain the fur of five times of the supply of one product. Stock up your displays and back stocks. Go creative with the themed display and create a desire to buy it in the minds of the buyers.

Early Access to sales

Everyone likes VIP treatment. Give your best customer the chance to start their shopping early by giving them early access. For instance, Jabong and Myntra have allotted VIP slots to their customers to avoid the festive sale rush.

As much as people love discounts, they only make purchases when it’s feasible to their pockets. Businesses can find innovative ways to make transactions easy for customers. For example, Amazon introduced “Amazon Pay EMI” for its e-commerce customers in India, mainly those who do not possess credit cards or have the option to pay in installments through debit cards. Flipkart has also started EMI on Debit Card for affordable shopping.

Fast Delivery

In today’s fast era, nobody has the time to wait. Millennials tend to value quick services. Along with good discounts, provide your customers with fast delivery. For instance, Amazon is ruling the festive sale season due to their one-day delivery service for prime members.

Apart from discounted items, keep in stock rare and limited edition or newly launched products to attract customers and then increase the sales. The trick is to cast an unuttered spell on the customers that what they are buying is exclusive to your store only.
