One thing that many businesses have in common is that they are always in search of how to boost sales. Your company must evolve with the times, and if you don’t, you’ll be left behind as your customers move on to better things.
Knowing how to boost sales as an entrepreneur is very important, as is having a constant goal for entrepreneurs.
It takes more than having a good product to sell. You have to find your target audience in the right place at the right time. You also need to understand the concept of generating leads via social media.
At Entrepreneurs.ng, we understand the need to grow a business and increase turnover. This understanding gave birth to the 10-Day Sales Challenge.
You see, we gather entrepreneurs every first Friday of the month to network, discuss our challenges, and offer solutions for our businesses. The Entrepreneurs.ng Meet takes place at our office in Ikeja, Lagos.
Sign up to be part of the Entrepreneurs.ng Meet. Join here.
In the course of our meetings, we discovered that many business owners are still finding it hard to penetrate the online market and want to learn how to boost sales. So we started a challenge within our community of entrepreneurs.
The challenge was:
Boost Your Sales Through Video Content
- We will share three short video content ideas/prompts weekly.
- You will use the following hashtags so we can keep ourselves accountable.
- Then you tag @ntrepreneursng on Instagram or any other platform.
The three compulsory channels are:
1) Instagram feed
2) WhatsApp Status
3) Instagram Story
You can add other channels as you deem fit.
Our community generated leads via their social media platforms and recorded more engagement than ever. Not surprisingly, other entrepreneurs got interested and wanted to be a part of it. So, why not create more value?
With the 10 Days Sales Challenge buffed up, this is what we offer;
- Learn to design posts on Canva for your business
- Learn how to create videos with Canva
- Learn how to set up Google My Business and upload your products
- Learn how to sell like a pro
- Get one POST prompt per day for social media for 10 days
- Get one VIDEO post prompt per day for social media for 10 days
- Get guidance in a group on how to get more customers for 10 days
So, on the 14th of November, 2022, we kicked off the first official edition of the 10 Days Sales Challenge. We onboarded our enthusiastic entrepreneurs via a virtual meeting and explained in detail, the exciting journey we will be going on.
We discussed a reward too. Let’s just say Father Christmas came early! LOL. We will be choosing the best video from the participants of the challenge and posting it on our social media platform. That way, we get to help the lucky entrepreneur get more views and more people to know about him/her business. Cool, right?
On a mission to learn how to boost sales…
The first task was to learn how to design with Canva. Florence Chikezie hammered that videos with a face do better than ones without. To wrap it up, we taught the class how to use Instagram Analytics and how to make Instagram Reels like a pro.
Hey, let’s extend a hand of love to you by giving you this content for free! Watch how to make Instagram Reels like a pro. Simply click ‘play’ on the video above.
