  1. The first good news is that you have a goal!
    I don’t know your sales history or size of customer database or size of average order, but here are some quick ideas.

    Your current customers are the best source of
    1) direct sales
    2) referrals
    Combine the two and offer an incentive for gift card or gift sales to new contacts so that your clients get something for introducing you to new users. Limit it to new users or gifts and be up front with your clients. “Hey, we are trying to expand our business and this is a way for you to get something for helping us out!” If you want to be even more helpful, limit your offerings to stuff that you have in stock (if you carry inventory) or that is seasonal so that is makes more sense to order.
    Another idea is to try something completely different because you have energy. Have you done internet marketing? If not, then try it. Have you tried radio? No? Find a way to give it a shot. None of your competitors do it? All the more reason to give it a try–differentiate to be remembered.

  2. Just wanted to update you on what the final outcome was. Total Sales $1386.59. What I did was contact all my past hosts and customers thru a mass email. I ran a “Grand” party. Only letting the first 10 who responded to collect $100.00 in outside orders , they would receive the host rewards which is $10.00 free, and I would put their name in a drawing and choose 1 of them to get an additional $50.00 free. So after all that I still made a profit of $335.30. And my goal met in two weeks.
