Interested, right? Then let’s get started
1. Make It Personal
All companies in the market are trying to make it look as though they are offering a personalized service. But, most do not have the time or money to offer customers a personal treatment. Instead, they offer the illusion of this type of treatment. One way to do this is through automated call handling. The customer is left with the impression they are speaking to an employee but they’re talking to an automated program. However, this is just altering perception and there are ways to show customers you do care.
We think a great way to do this is to send out e-cards. Christmas is approaching so why not start by sending out some business holiday cards. These can be anything from saying “thanks for being a loyal customer” to a simple “season’s greeting.” Don’t forget that these cards aren’t just for Christmas. They’re a great, cheap way to show your customers that you care, all year around.
Or, if you’re looking for a personalized marketing campaign, what about personalized merchandise. You can get this made in bulk by a company and then sell it to consumers. Many businesses believe this type of marketing pays for itself. It’s also great for making your business stand out at trade shows and you can even give it away for free with a purchased product.
2. Hold An Event
If you’re trying to catch the interest of local clients and customers, why not hold a party. This can be a simple celebration, letting customers get to know the people behind the company. Or, you can set it up as a fundraising event. Showing your company cares about more than just making profits is a brilliant marketing strategy. It will separate your business from the pack. By throwing an event, you’ll be wining and dining the customers you need to stay loyal when times are hard.
3. App Tastic
If your company doesn’t have an app, you should speak to a developer as soon as possible. An app is a brilliant way to market your company as a business that is more accessible to consumers. You can set up the app to do anything from giving more information to other ways customers can make purchases. These days consumers love having the services they use right at their fingertips.
So, let’s wrap up this post by asking that question again: is marketing your business really difficult?
As you can see from the above all you need is some creativity. There’s a hundred and one strategies and tactics out there already but if you can put on your thinking cap and be ready to tweak things a little you can do wonders.
