    On the House

    • Personal chefs: offer free breakfast with purchase of lunch and dinner.serious woman image by Lisa Eastman from Fotolia.com

      Appeal to everyone's love of getting something for nothing. If you're a personal chef, offer a complimentary breakfast with the purchase of lunch and dinner. Give loyal customers their fifth free. If you're an upholsterer, offer to do a fourth seat cushion with the repair or recovering of three seat cushions. If you teach, offer a buy-three-get-one free package of horseback riding or archery or piano or swimming lessons. If you own a beauty salon, enter customers who purchase any service into a drawing to win a free manicure or pedicure.

    DIY Demonstration

    • If you sell dolls, offer a doll-making workshop to interest your buyers.indian peg doll image by Daughterson from Fotolia.com

      Invite people to monthly "how-to" workshops teaching about a service you offer or product you provide. This idea works well for businesses that sell specialty homemade or handmade items. Spend an hour showing attendees how to do a simple version of what you sell: sculpting pottery, baking croissants, putting together a little gift basket or making bead earrings, a corncob doll or a bar of scented soap; then show them the ornate, vast and varied selection for sale in your store. Or, spend 30 minutes demonstrating how to lay brick, tan a hide, build a wooden chest, work metal, create a wreath or blow glass; then offer your services.
