Click here to see how running a promo leads to repeat sales and how end of the year business promos increase your customer base.


Another major reason why running an end of the year business promo should be high on your agenda at this time of the year is it helps wake up sleeping customers. Just what do we mean by this? And how can a promo help accomplish this? We’ll see in a moment.




One of the very challenging tasks in managing a business be it small-scale or large-scale is keeping an active interest of customers. It is therefore of no surprise that lots of business have a plethora of customers that have gone inactive.


There are several reasons why you might be losing your customers, i.e. have them sleeping off so to speak. Some of these are:


  • They got a better alternative from a competitor in the area of product prices


  • You have a poor customer service


  • They’ve lost faith in the quality of your products or services


  • They no longer see any reason to use your product or service


  • You don’t offer bonuses, give discounts and run promos, i.e. you don’t reward loyal customers E.T.C.


For these reasons mentioned above, and some other little ones, you might find some inactive customers. Running a bumper end of the year business promo though can help address this slumber.


When you run a promo, you remind the customers that you are still around in the industry, you let them know you are always ready and willing to reward them for their patronage and you get them to again rekindle their dying believe in what you offer.


Regardless of how disoriented a customer has gotten towards you, he/she will unlikely pass by an opportunity of a jaw breaking promo offer. Participating in the promo brings him back to you for the moment, and then you can do a prompt follow up to ensure he doesn’t go back to sleep.



Now that you’ve drawn your map for pushing out your promo, the next thing is to create a massive awareness to the public. The social media will be a perfect avenue to get as many prospective customers as possible to participate. However, you also need a personal awareness with your existing loyal customers. Bulk SMS can help you accomplish this.
