DUH Online Business Ideas for Customers
I know you don’t have to be an Einstein to know this but hey with so much information out there lets get back to basics. Many of you already know how to increase your online sales and some of you are new to this. In fact I have shared some great online business ideas for developing customers so the following is a smaller followup checklist.
1. On of the smartest online business ideas of course is to follow up with them after the sale (DUH). But the question is what do you say to them? Say thank you. Ask them about their business or intended purpose for your product or service. Offer some online business ideas of your own to help them.
2. Create opportunities for sale by offering related products. Now at this point I want to stop and say I don’ t mean the usual “GURU” way but the real one. Offer what makes sense and if they say no leave them alone on that subject no need to pitch 1000 things.
3. Send them a discount. Another DUH always offer your clients a break. How much? Roughly 20 -sometimes 50% off! Remember they have a history of buying from you.
4. Sell gift certificates for your products. You’ll make sales from the purchase of the gift certificate, when the recipient cashes it in. They could also buy other items from your web site.
5. Hey another no brainer of online business ideas is to send BONUS free products with their original order. I always giveaway unexpected gifts. A lot of fun.
And there we are I know several of you know this already but sometimes we have to be reminded of these little things that can mean a LOT to our future business.
Remember there are only a few combos of online business ideas you can use to grow.

- Sell more to current ones
- Sell More at a higher volume to new customers
- Sell More at a higher volume to current ones
- Sell products and services at higher amounts to a new customers
