At we’re proud to work with a wide variety of trade customers and we’ve put together some tips on how best to really make a profit from print.

Choose a Reliable and Efficient Trade Printing Partner

Look at Existing Accounts – and Up-Sell

For any business, it’s always important to seek out new customers and it’s no different when selling print. However, if you want to increase profits it’s often a good idea to look at your existing customers. You know they already have a need for print and are happy with your service, so as well as ensuring their needs are always met, don’t be afraid to upsell or suggest other products they could use.

Grade your Prospects

When you’re looking at new prospects, ask yourself how likely they are to buy. How great is their need for your product? It’s better to concentrate on even a small sale to a good prospect than spend valuable hours chasing someone who is unlikely to buy.

Apply Price Based on Product, not Mark-Up

Some product sales will take more of your time than others. Some may require typically less mark-up because the competition is so high and there are many similar products on the market. You can apply a greater mark-up to more specialised products, like PVC banners, vinyls, roll up banner stands and books. See each sale individually and don’t use at a one size fits all pricing policy.
