How To Get Sales on New Online Business

0 Sales Solved – Zero to Hero in Less Then 30 Days


If you’re reading this, chances are you’re feeling a bit stuck, maybe even overwhelmed by the lack of sales in your new online business.

But here’s the first thing I want you to know:

You’re not alone.

This is a normal stage that almost every entrepreneur faces at some point. It’s not a sign that something is inherently wrong with you or your business.

The world of online business is complex and ever-changing.

Even the most successful businesses have faced periods of zero sales, especially in their early days.

What separates those who succeed from those who don’t is not the absence of problems, but the ability to find and implement solutions.

That’s exactly what this guide is about.

You might think there’s a massive, unsolvable issue behind your lack of sales.

More often than not, however, it’s something small and entirely fixable.

Maybe it’s a tweak in your marketing strategy, a slight adjustment in your product offerings, or just a different approach to engaging with potential customers.

These are all solvable issues, and we’re going to explore them together.

We’ll dive into various reasons why your sales might be stagnant.

We’ll look at common pitfalls, misunderstandings, and overlooked areas that could be hindering your success.

But more importantly, we’ll provide you with practical, actionable steps to address each of these issues.

Remember, feeling stuck or overwhelmed is just a part of the entrepreneurial journey. It’s not a reflection of your capabilities or potential. With the right guidance and a bit of perseverance, you can overcome these challenges.

Keep your head up, stay focused, and let’s start unraveling the mysteries behind your sales challenges.

Let’s get started on turning your zero into a hero!


Not Knowing Who You’re Selling To

Imagine trying to tell a story but not knowing who’s listening. That’s what happens when you’re not sure who your customers are. Your business might be trying to talk to everyone, which usually means you’re not really reaching anyone.


Think about who would really love what you’re selling. Are they young, old, into sports, or maybe love tech stuff? Get to know them – like what they do, what they like, and what problems they have that you can solve. Investigate a lot!


Website’s a Bit of a Mess

If your website is hard to use or looks like it was made in the ’90s, people won’t stick around. A bad website is like a messy room; nobody wants to stay.


Make your website cool and easy to use. It should look good on phones too, since that’s where a lot of people shop from. Think clean, simple, and fun to click around.


Check your website on your phone and a friend’s phone. Look for any weird layout issues or slow loading pages. Make a list of what needs fixing.


Google Can’t Find You

Ever tried finding a secret clubhouse without a map? That’s like your website without good SEO (Search Engine Optimization). If Google can’t find you, neither can customers.


Learn some SEO tricks. Use words people type into Google when looking for stuff you sell. Make your site fast and post cool stuff about what you sell.


Google search the main product or service you offer and see if your website appears in the results. Note your position and think of three relevant keywords to improve SEO.


People Don’t Trust You Yet

When you’re new, people might not be sure if they can trust buying from you. It’s like when you meet someone new; you don’t know if you can trust them yet.


Show off good reviews from other customers. If you don’t have many, ask friends or family to try your stuff and give honest feedback. Good service and promises (like money-back guarantees) also help build trust.


Reach out to your first few customers or friends who’ve used your product and ask for honest reviews or testimonials to post on your website.


Can’t Pay the Way They Want

Imagine going to a store and they don’t take your money. Weird, right? That’s what happens if you don’t offer the payment options your customers like.


Offer ways to pay that everyone uses, like credit cards, PayPal, maybe even stuff like Apple Pay.


Go to your website and test the checkout process yourself. See if it feels easy and smooth. Jot down any payment methods you think are missing and would make the process simpler.


You’re Focusing Too Much on Making a Sale

Imagine you’re talking to someone and all they do is try to sell you something. It gets annoying, right? That’s how customers feel if every message from you is “buy, buy, buy.” You need to build a relationship, not just push for sales.


Think about how you connect with friends. You don’t just ask them for favors; you share stories, laugh together, and help each other out. Apply this to your business. Share content that’s interesting or helpful, not just sales pitches. Maybe post a helpful tip related to your product, share a customer’s story, or talk about something cool happening in your industry.


There is No Urgency to Buy

If people visit your site and think, “I’ll buy this later,” they often don’t come back. You need something that makes them think, “I need this now!”


Use tactics like limited-time offers, countdowns for special deals, or showcasing low stock. These strategies create a feeling of urgency, similar to how limited-time sales prompt quicker purchases.


Think of a special offer you can make – like a discount or a freebie if they buy within the next 48 hours. Plan to announce this offer on your website and social media.


Boring or Confusing Sales

If what you say about your product sounds like a robot wrote it or it’s super boring, people won’t listen. You’ve got to grab their attention.


Talk about your product like you’re telling your best friend why it’s awesome. Keep it fun, simple, and straight to the point.


Take a look at your current product descriptions or sales pitches. Rewrite one of them as if you’re excitedly explaining it to a friend. Keep it simple, fun, and clear.


Stuff’s Too Expensive

If your prices are way higher than others, people might walk away. It’s like choosing between two similar games, but one’s a lot cheaper.


Check out what others are charging for similar stuff. If you’re more expensive, make sure you tell people why. Maybe your stuff’s better quality or has something special.


Grab a notepad and list what’s super cool or special about what you’re selling. Think about why it might be worth the price you’re asking. Are there things you offer that others don’t? Write them down!


Your Product Photos or Descriptions Are Meh

If your product looks bad in photos or the description is as exciting as watching paint dry, people won’t be interested. You’ve got to show it off like it’s the coolest thing ever.


Get some great photos taken, show your product in action, and write about it like you’re super excited. Make people feel like they’ve got to have it.


Pick any product on your site. Quickly brainstorm ways to make its photo more eye-catching and its description more engaging. Note these ideas for immediate action.


Not Solving Problems Fast

If customers have problems or questions and you’re slow to respond, they might get frustrated. It’s like asking for help and being ignored.


Be quick to answer questions or fix problems. Make it easy for people to contact you. Happy customers often come back and tell their friends.


Set up a notification on your phone or computer to alert you immediately when a customer sends a question or complaint. Commit to responding within a few hours, if not sooner.


No One Knows Why Your

If people don’t see why your product is different or better than others, they might not bother. It’s like choosing between two identical soccer balls; why pick one over the other?


Think about what makes your product unique. Maybe it’s made from special materials, has a cool design, or does something others don’t. Tell that story so people see why it’s awesome.


Grab a piece of paper and list three unique things about your product. Think about why someone should choose it over others and highlight those on social medias.


Ghosting on Social Media

Not being on Instagram, Facebook, or other socials is like missing out on the biggest party. It’s where people hang out and talk about stuff they like (and buy).


Get on social media and start posting cool, fun stuff about your products. Chat with people, make friends, and show them what’s great about what you sell.


Make a quick post on your main social media account. Share something interesting about your business or product, or even just a friendly hello to your followers. Commit to regular posting from here on.


You Don’t Really Believe In What You’re Selling

If you’re not passionate about your own product, it’s hard to convince others to be. It’s like trying to get your friends excited about a movie you don’t actually like. Your lack of belief can show in your marketing and sales approach.


Rediscover what made you excited about your product in the first place. What’s cool or unique about it? Why would you use it yourself? When you find that spark of enthusiasm, it naturally shows in how you talk about and sell your product.


Take a moment to write down what you love about your product and why you started selling it. If you’re struggling, think about aspects you can improve to reignite your passion. Share this enthusiasm in your next customer interaction or marketing content.
