Alternative ways to boost sales for the prepaid dealer
by Tony Kwofi
Hi. Apart from hanging prepaid cards at shops for people to call in to buy, or selling vouchers online, are there other very efficient ways to boost sales?
I'm asking from Ghana, West Africa, and the common method here is to hang cards and wait for buyers. Online selling is not effective as many people do not have 24/7 access to internet. For me as a dealer, I have a long list of customers mainly working in offices from 9-5pm. They call or text for credits, they specify the amount they want, and I text the PIN back to them. My sales reps, using scooters, go around to collect the monies before 5pm or early the next morning. This has relatively boosted sales, but I need to know what other, better, practices exist especially internationally.
Would appreciate any information or knowledge you could share.
