Have you ever noticed how determined and upbeat a child at a lemonade stand is? They are thrilled for an opportunity to promote their product, entice a crowd, and sell as much lemonade as they can. They may only earn a few dollars, but they are excited to go out and try again. Here are a few tips on how to start selling like a 6-year-old:

• Give potential customers a taste of what you have to offer. Similar to how a child may offer a free sample of lemonade, try offering first time customers a free or discounted sample of your products or services.

Add a special touch. If your prospects or customers feel like they receive special treatment, they’ll likely tell their friends and are sure to return.

• Spread the word. Kids love to run next door to the neighbors and tell them about their new business. In the business world, networking is just as effective and important.

• Get noticed. Sometimes a simple sign isn’t enough to attract business. You may need to jump up and down at passing cars, or simply spread your enthusiasm for your business.

• Don’t give up. Even though many cars will likely pass you by, the ones who stop can make your business worthwhile, so don’t forget to be persistent.

• Find a good partner. Don’t team with someone who will stand around and drink your profits. Instead find someone who will jump up and down with you and help you to draw and manage more business.
