September 4, 2014: Ask for First-Time Discounts
Shouldn’t you be rewarded for trying something for the first time? I think so…
Whether walking into a dry-cleaner, furniture shop or auto-mechanic for the first time, it’s worth letting them know.
Why, you ask?
Nine times out of ten they will give you a discount for coming into their shop, especially when it’s a local business.
Think about it, often times they’re already spending advertising dollars on commercials or coupons to do the exact same thing, so why wouldn’t they want to pass that savings on to you? Plus, if you have a great experience, they know the word of mouth advertising you’ll share far outweighs any discount they might offer. So try it!
