8 Simple Ways To Market Your Business
It’s not impossible to spread the word about your business. Here are some quick tips on how to get the word out!
Give Them A Taste!
If you aren’t in the food business, Don’t worry this STILL applies to you! Give your customers a preview of your services and explain the benefits of what you do. Customers want to see results and know they are in good hands.
Network Network Network!
I’m a huge networker. I love meeting new people and try to attend local events in the area. Meeting new people allows me to get my business name out there and also allows me to recommend other local businesses. It’s a nice team effort and definitely pays off. I’m lucky to say I barely do any paid advertisement and most of my clientele comes from recommendations. It works, go meet people!
Not Many Events? Plan Your Own!
If there are not many events going on, It’s advised you create your own. This may seem like a lot to do but rest assure this easy task can be accomplished within a few days. Plan an auction, Do some volunteering, or maybe plan a night out for potential customers to get to know more about you and your business! Again get to know your target market and allow them to get to know you.
Start a Blog
Blogging can be extremely useful. With the help of our content writers, we can ensure that you are always at the top of your market with the most up to date news on your line of work. Offer some advice, help, and offer some tips and tricks your customers can do themselves. Again this is a great way to be more personable with your customers and will result in your business growing.
Be as helpful as possible. Customers will go where there is good customer service and with a company that goes above and beyond. Host a live twitter questionnaire where your new and existing customers can ask questions about services and tips they can do on their own for an hour out of the week. This is a very effective and fun way to gain new business and gain more content online!
Send a Weekly Email
This is a great way to stay connected with your customers. Give them something useful to read to keep you in mind. Your weekly email doesn’t necessarily have to do with your business, Maybe just a little Monday Motivation, either way, this is a great way to keep your business fresh in your customer’s mind.
Use Social Media
Using social media is so important this day and age. Something as easy as a quote, a little helpful tip or just something to brighten someone’s day can result in a new or repeat business customer. This will also turn into brand awareness and really get your business out there. People share and a few days later your Facebook following of 200 has been shared to thousands of people!! Use the internet and social media to your advantage. Not only is it the quickest form of advertisement but it’s also effective. People listen to their friends, use that to your advantage.
Create a Cool Giveaway
We mentioned earlier to give a little piece to your customers but what’s better than the whole pie! Getting your customers excited about a small give away will also show you who is most interested in what you have to offer. Spend a little more time getting to know these customers. If you are a marketing company try offering a free month’s worth of drip marketing. This not only allows them a taste but to start seeing results as well! The customers who see the benefit in this will end up continuing this service. For the customers who did not win it sparks an interest and they start asking questions. It’s a win-win!
