How many of your customers, if you have an online presence, live across the country or around the world, would love to have immediate access to your classroom information? How about the handouts that you give those in your classes, or have available for your walk-in customers to pick up. These tidbits of information could be wrapped up as pamphlets or booklets and sold as downloadable information for your potential world-wide customers, rather than having to think about how to pack and ship the product.
For many years the only option for purchasing our Sewing Machine Repair and Serger Repair books was to pay for shipping and have them sent through the mail. With the postage rates going up every year in May, those costs have been getting higher and higher, and almost completely out of sight for those living out of the country, such as Australia, UK, Canada, etc. Sometimes the airmail shipping fees cost nearly as much as the price of the product you’re sending.
As an example of offering books and classes that previously had to be sent through the mail, you can now get all of our pattern making books / classes as downloadable ebooks at PatternsThatFitYou.com, AND our sewing machine repair, serger repair, complete guide to treadle sewing machines, as well as our complete Sewing Machine Repair as a Home Business are all in downloadable eBook format – you can see them all when you visit our sewnfit.com site.
By purchasing the downloadable version, you not only get the latest versions of the books, you also can have them IMMEDIATELY, and save dollars by not having to pay shipping on the books.
Consider what booklets, pamphlets and other information you have that can be produced as a downloadable item, then add it to your website or blog where your customers can see it, order it and have it on their computer as immediate access.
