Talking Sex for sale.

Or rather, Sex sells...

Yes guys, it's the thing most people think about most of the time and the top keyword of any search engine. You did click on this forum the instant you saw that work didn't you?

Relate your business to this and it'll sure be having a good impact on your sales dispite a little bad reputation.

It usually works good with female models, posing and endorsing your products. get any person with a good personality to market the product and a good looking girl to actually Sell them..

Speaking from experice, I was once working in a 3 day PC fair selling CD-Rs. There were 3 sales person including me. The other 2 were a young kid and a girl with good looks.

The girl know nothing about computers. I know all about computers. Yet, the girl got 200% more sales then I did. How did that happened? I wonder!

Yep, sex does indeed sell. But, there are plenty of other ways to make the sale and we each have to make a decision about what our companies stand for.

Default Exactly !!! Sex appeal

Check out our home page and you will see we have incorporated this timeless selling technique.

In fact, the cheerleader section is our number two most often visited section.

there are also ways to use sex without being obvious about it. I think sports, in particular, is highly associated with hot chicks (thanks to all the beer commercials) and good looking cheerleaders.

For the rest of us, we can use "sex" in a more professional manner, such as using stock photos of very pretty "professionals" going about their business, etc. Nothing wrong with that, which is why just about everybody in stock photos is good looking!
