    Hello Guys.

    I am currently selling car polishing products here on the local offline market, but am starting to realize I should have used social media way back when I started. I sell both to local stores and to professionals, with of course a difference in price depending on the volume of the sales.

    This thread is to get input on what would you guys do to sell a product you have in stock and are ready to ship(I own the business and everything is done legally). I am getting a mild success with these tactics but it's time to step up the marketing, now that everything else, like setting up the business, is taken care of(or so).

    I will tell what I am doing right now so it's like I am giving back before asking for something in return:

    1 - I cold call and then visit business owners with my proposals.
    2 - I send email campaigns(about 100/day).
    3 - I add possible clients on facebook on a daily basis, and later I will start advertising on the account.
    4 - I have a pretty neat website which accepts many ways of payment and is online 24/7
    5 - I am planning on creating more social media profiles and promote the products via video demonstrations in conjunction with one of my clients.
    6 - I am planning on advertising(Idk yet, radio, newspapers, tv...)

    As I mentioned, any input on how to market my stuff is appreciated. What else is mandatory, in your opinion, that is not being done?

    Really thanks.

    Invest in social media ads. Apart from your time and the cost of creating your promotion, social media promotion is practically free. Generate more leads, increase website traffic, improve brand recognition are powerful new ways to target the right audience.
