November 18, 2015 - 4 Comments

If you sell products online, your long-term goal will be to sell more products. And if you sell bookings, naturally, your goal will be to sell more bookings.

But the advice that’s given to stores aiming to ship more physical goods won’t necessarily help you sell more spots in your hotel, book more appointments, or fill up more classes at your gym.
