In the past I have found the following items to work.
1) Scratch-off Lottery tickets used throughout the day are EXCELLENT.
2) You would be surprised how cheap a small TV is and how heated a month long raffle for that TV gets. Trade sales for tickets, etc.
3) Lunches always work.
4) Movie tickets to the top five sales people.
The list goes on and on but maybe these help you.
Oh, take balloons and put different items in there (written on paper). Every sale, every other sale, most sales for the day, etc. gets to pop a balloon and claim the prize. Adds good energy to the room and you can have 30 balloons filled with lottery tickets and $1 slips as long as you have a couple of $5's, $10's and maybe a $20 or so.
