Cupcakes for sale, free car with purchase

Posted on

Everyone likes to get something for free. The idea that you’re getting a little something extra can really sweeten the deal when you’re making a purchase. A, who blogs at Never Bashful With Butter, took the idea of sweetening a deal a step further and gave away a batch of her impressive homemade cupcakes to the person who purchased her car. Or, if you want to think of it another way, you could say that she gave away a car to the first person who was willing to pay over. Either way, the sugary incentive probably helped seal the deal. It’s hard to resist a good-looking cupcake, after all.

Not a bad strategy keep in mind the next time you’re planning on selling something.

    Hey, when I sold my TV my craigslist post read “Cheap TV + 2 batches of your favorite cookie!.” Two days and two batches of oatmeal raisin cookies later, the TV was gone for a hefty profit. Great strategy!
