Every business owner wants their products and services known and purchased by as many people as possible. Products and services will be constantly purchased if customers really love them. Do you always go for iPhone or Tesla car? You love it, and you can’t deny it.
Similarly, as a business owner, even though it’s small, you should let your business be loved by potential customers so that they’ll pay for it.
Stay Active on Social Media
All posts for business on any social media platform aim to attract people’s attention and interests. You don’t have Oreo cookies every day but you must be amused by its posts on Twitter. That’s how Oreo gains popularity among customers. Whenever a person selects snacks by a shelf in a supermarket, Oreo must be picked up just because of a funny video clip posted on Twitter that occurs to him or her someday.
Your posts around your business aim to remind potential customers of your products’ or services’ high quality or reputation in the corresponding industry. In addition, user cases can be also shared on social media as the best evidence.
Before marketing on social media, some tips should be followed. First, find the right social media platform where most potential customers like to stay. If they cover multiple social media platforms, your posts should be equivalently shared on multiple platforms as well. Second, try to use multiple types of content to attract potential customers including funny videos, coupon giveaways, or resumes. Third, analyze your post insights in time so as to post similar high-quality content to gain more followers. The more followers, the more potential customers. Finally, communicate with followers on time and politely so as to get knowledge about customers’ real thoughts.
Establish Your Own Community
Communities have different meanings when it comes to different industries. For a pet shop owner, the community refers to the people living near the shop. For a Uber or Lyft driver, the community refers to all his or her old passengers and restaurant owners if they also run delivery services. In a community, you have multiple roles and responsibilities other than a business owner. When the community calls for public affairs, you can support it in some way as well. That’s also a way to brand and market your business. Compared with direct ads, such behavior is beneficial to quickly push your products and services to the public. The more you participate in community activities, the more the locals will remember and love your business.
Be a Listener
What do customers need most? Trust me, they don’t need your products or services but your feedback and accompany. Being a good listener to your customers leads them to trust you in an easy and comfortable way. Listening is part of the action to help potential customers to solve their issues. Most people will feel relaxed when they are well listened to. You don’t need to agree with them in all aspects but help them analyze their issues in an objective way. Moreover, the issue customers complain about can have nothing to do with your products or services. Perhaps they just need you to repair their home appliances. The essential principle is to be available whenever they need.
To be a good listener, try to talk with potential customers as soon as possible. Use a business number at a low cost for unlimited calls and texts.
