    (0) Don't skip the math
    Here is something that I hear on the phone sometimes with new customers. "I am selling these products at a booth this weekend, and I need to get things to sell.

    I have talked with over 200 people who have ordered the $49. Africa Imports starter kit. Some of these people never give out any of the sample products.

    (0) Another idea for growing your business
    From: Deanna in St. Louis, MO If I had $500 to grow my business, I would buy different items that I cold sell at the school in my area. I would ask for permission to have a table set up during School Programs, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, & Christmas time. This would allow the children and staff to buy things for their family members. I would keep the prices really cheap so the children can afford to buy them. The purpose would not be to get rich, but to get a new customer. Hopefully the parents would like the product and contact me for any new purchases....

These people could really benefit from our products as most of ...

    This is the idea sent in by Felicia in Dallas, TX 1. I would invest 400.00 in two of the top selling products. One of the best products for me to sell is the Nag Champa Incense.
