Procurement is how goods and services are purchased. Here we’ve provided a few helpful resources on buying and supplying locally:
The county’s online contract portal and face-to- face networking initiative. If you want to find local suppliers, increase your customer base, view tenders and post supply opportunities then you can with them register for free. Finditinworcestershire also host free monthly breakfast networking meetings, allowing local businesses to network with one another and hear a presentation from an industry expert.
Generating and Increasing Sales
The first step to consistently generating and increasing sales is to understand your customers’ needs, so you can sell the right products, in the right place and at the right time.
You may choose to reach out to new customers or target existing ones, and focus on sales in your local area or further afield. Taking the time to find out what customers want will give structure to your marketing communications and help you develop a sales strategy to improve conversion rates and long-term progression.
Although generating new custom is always worthwhile, targeting customers who have already bought from you is often a more efficient and valuable way to increase sales. You can do this by:
- Persuading customers who have recently bought from you to become repeat customers
- Increasing the amount you are selling to regular customers
- Reengaging with customers who’ve stopped buying from you
