3 Sales Strategies To Increase Your Cash Flow

 Not making enough sales? Do you ever wonder how you can increase your cash flow to your business?
There are 3 basic sales strategies to increase YOUR sales through strategic planning and customer service. Whether you are selling homes or hamburgers there are opportunities to increase sales and gain a loyal customer base by using these strategies in your business plan.  

1) Increase Your Cash Flow By Increasing Your Number of Individual Sales

The first way to increase your cash flow is to increase the number of individual sales. Companies that sell products or services that are only needed every few years or once in a lifetime, like a new home, car, or wedding ring have to concentrate all their business activities on increasing the number of sales, because once a person has purchased one of these items, he or she is not going to be a customer in that market again for a long time.
If doubling your profitability requires that you double the number of sales of your product or service, then this becomes the central focus of your marketing, advertising, and strategic planning.

Seyi Shay: I Don’t See Tiwa Savage as a Rival | Is the “Rivalry” Question Sexist?

Waje, Tiwa Savage & Seyi Shay - Omawumi in Concert The Lasso of Truth -BellaNaija
In an interview with Punch, the question is thrown at Seyi Shay, asking if there is any rivalry between her and Tiwa Savage.
She says;
“I think people can see the difference between us now. The reason I don’t see Tiwa as a rival is because I know who I am. I know that I’m very much a fun-loving person. I’m still the woman of the world that many people know. I really don’t care about the things that are not going to affect me in a positive way. If it’s not going to affect me in a positive way, I don’t focus on it or think about it.
The difference is that I am deeper into the ragga stuff than she is. She portrays herself as somebody that is a cautious RnB artist, which she is. But I see myself as a commercial and carefree spirit. I don’t know her to that extent, so I can’t really speak about her. But I feel that Murda is my vibe and her vibe is her vibe.”
On her trending track Murda featuring Patoranking and Shaydee: “Initially I didn’t like the song because it was too different from everything else that was out there. It took me three or four months to come back to the studio to finish it. With the success of this song, it is evident that people want something different. Hopefully, I can continue to give them something different all the time.”

Meet the family that missed Flight17 by minutes+chilling audio from rebels after they shot down plane

Barry and Izzy Sim (pictured above) were planning to travel to Kuala Lumpur with their young baby on Flight MH17 but were told by staff at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport that the plane was too full. The family was then given seats on a later KLM flight, just hours before the plane was shot down.

"You get this sick feeling in the pit of your stomach... We started getting butterflies. Your heartbeat starts going.' Barry Sim said of his reaction after he heard the plane he desperately wanted to board was shot down.

His wife said; 'There must have been someone watching over us and saying "you must not get on that flight".' The couple later cancelled their flight with KLM after the women refused to fly. 

Meanwhile U.S intelligence has confirmed that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatists who mistook the jetliner for a Ukraine military plane. And it is a Russian-made weapon.
