As a business owner, you know that having customers is your lifeline to continued revenue growth and success. Without someone outside of your company taking the time to purchase and consume your product or service, there is no future. To that end, you need to reach a constant pipeline flow of new and potential customers to engage and connect. Luckily, there are a variety of successful ways to accomplish and meet that goal.
The ubiquitous email account has been around for quite a while with few changes. And yet, email is still a powerful and cost-effective way to reach customers – both new and old. There are a few ways to build up an email list. One of the more constructive ways is to buy email lists. When you take this route, you can amass a powerful mailing list based on the demographics that you desire to reach, such as zip code, general proximity to a specific zip code, gender, specific behaviors, and the list goes on. You can tailor your list to what you are looking for to achieve maximum impact.
A seamless way to add more email addresses and contact information to your contact lists is to offer newsletter sign-up options on your website. Add a pop-up window to your homepage soliciting this information. You might even offer up giveaways and prizes to garner more contacts and establish relationships with potential customers. Everyone enjoys the opportunity to get something for free. Use that to your advantage to advertise your brand.
With the vast array of social media applications available for consumers and businesses to connect, it is almost essential for you to have an online presence for your company. You can make Youtube tutorials showing how to best use your product or service that lets people subscribe and keep coming back. Facebook reaches a broad demographic that skews towards middle-aged to older groups. TikTok is the quintessential platform for younger generations to share. Instagram reaches a variety of groups. The possibilities to reach new customers with social media are seemingly endless.
How do you rate the usability of your company’s website? Is it user-friendly? Do all pages have a solid internal link or access point to bring visitors directly to both the home page and the “Contact Us” page? If you answer no to these questions, consider making some essential updates for a more approachable design. Contract with a User Design or UX company to redesign your website with maximum aesthetics and usability in mind.
If you have not made a foray into the world of apps, consider adding one to your business repertoire. They are easy to install and convenient ways to connect people to your product. In today’s technological society, everyone has a phone at hand and connects quickly to information. Make your product readily available, too. Apps are easy ways to highlight your product or service. They allow people to communicate with your company with ease, and purchases and payments are made instantly on the platform.
Go ahead and try some, or all, of these strategies to identify and gain new customers. Innovate, make positive business changes and reach the heights of success in the business that you have worked so hard to create. Your customers will thank you for reaching out to them.
