New Year Offers on purchase of new two-wheelers
With just over two weeks to the Nepali New Year, domestic two-wheeler dealers have started announcing offers and schemes to target potential customers. According to them, customers are mentally prepared to buy new goods and services during the festival period and such offers and schemes help nudge customers into making major purchases.
Domestic two-wheeler dealers are targeting strong sales during the upcoming Nepali New Year. They make nearly 75 percent of their annual sales during festivals like the Nepali New Year, Dashain and Tihar. Nearly 25 percent of sales are made during the Nepali New Year alone, said Ramesh Danekhu, assistant manager, corporate communications and marketing at MAW Enterprises.
He said that sales of two-wheelers generally decline during the winter season, from mid-December to mid-February as most customers wait for the Nepali New Year to buy a new two-wheeler.
Cash discount is the first thing that most customers look for when looking at schemes and offers, said two-wheeler dealers.
The advertisement industry also sees an uptick in business with the announcement of different offers and schemes across various newspaper, TV and radio outlets.
