Collaborate

Want to try and grow your business’s brand image away from the Internet? It’s a good idea. Sure, the Internet is super important these days, but it is also crucial to take care of your brand image away from the Internet too. After all, it may be hard to imagine, but there are still people not online yet! So how exactly do you increase your brand’s reach away from the web? One of the best ways is to collaborate with other companies who are in a similar line of work to you. By collaborating, you will find out there is a lot of truth in the saying ‘two heads are better than one’! Initially, the collaborative project will introduce the other company’s customers to your business. This can lead to a big boost in your sales. But eventually, once your project becomes more public, you will find that your sales are given an even bigger boost!

Referral Programs

Another great project that can help increase your brand’s reach is a referral program. This can take a few different forms. But by far the most common goes as follows. You will need to generate a code that can be used in your online shop. You should then hand this out to customers who buy your products or use your services, and they can pass the code onto their friends and family. When someone uses the code, they will get a discount, and there will also be a discount available for those who refer them. So it’s a win-win situation for everyone! Your customers who refer you will get a discount, their friends who they give the code to will also get a discount, and your company can add some new customers to its database!

Free Merch

Everyone loves freebies! And one great way of spreading the love among your customers is to give out free merchandise. This merchandise can come in many different shapes and sizes. For instance, how about some pens with your logo on them? Or you could go for personalized mouse mats or t-shirts. Your customers will love using all the merch that you have to offer. And this then gives you some free advertising! After all, they will be showing your name off whenever they use the merch. This is a great way to increase your customer base: you may be surprised at just how well this method works! So when should you give away all this free merch? Many companies hand it out when they first open in a bid to try and attract more custom. You could also include a free pen or t-shirt with each order!

There are plenty of ways you can get your business’s name out there into the world. Are you ready for all the extra orders?!

Here Today; Here Tomorrow: The Vitals For Giving Your Business Longevity

Nostalgia is the one thing that never goes out of fashion. Pick up a local newspaper and look in its entertainment section. Chances are, there are ads for a local 80s or 90s theme night. Fashions, songs and even drinks that we remember from 20 or 30 years ago. If they’re done right, they rake in money.

Do you know what was big in the 90s? 60s and 70s theme nights. And in 2036, there will be DJs playing the hits of today. That’s the thing about nostalgia. We don’t have it for things that are still around. You don’t need to make a comeback if you never went away.

Having success is one thing, and a lot of people and businesses (small and large) can do it in the short term. But if you want to really make it, you need to stick. Do you know why 90s artists are playing the comeback trail now? Because they need the money. Short-term success doesn’t sustain an expensive lifestyle. You need always to be looking for ways not to be forgotten.

Do You Want To Be Cameo Or Aretha Franklin?

There is a difference between being known and being remembered. And perhaps the biggest part of that difference is being set to transmit and receive at the same time. If you just put a message out there, you’ll gain some traction. But if you put the word out, hear what comes back and adapt, you’ll keep climbing the ladder.

You see it in the difference between a normal blog post and interactive content marketing. People who feel they are being sold to might buy, once. Individuals who believe they are part of a conversation will become customers.

Identity Is Everything

Harking back to the 90s again, do you remember how every new group, singer, actor or show was referred to as “the new” something? That’s effective in marketing for as long as it takes not to be new anymore. If a band was the “new Beatles,” then once the initial novelty wore off, people would just listen to the Beatles instead. You have to carve your identity, and that can only happen by speaking to your public. Be social, use Twitter, use Instagram, but do it right.

Some major brands have already embraced this, bringing them bang up to date even if the brand has many years on the clock. For example, Coke have existed since the 20th century, but their modernity is guaranteed with their social network use. They have created an entire “Hub Network” to make sure they stay on pace with trends.

Understand What You’re Working With

Entrepreneurs today have more tools than ever before to work with, and to establish a business. The ones who do it successfully are the people who know how to use it. It’s not enough to get your business a Twitter account. Are you just reposting your blog posts on there? Then you’re not building a conversation. These days, everything happens on social networks. Be on there reacting to things and engaging. That’s how you establish your voice, but be careful. The list of brands who have made horrible errors in social media engagement doesn’t need another to add to the list.

The phrase “here today, gone tomorrow” can apply to you very quickly if you’re not in control of your story. Don’t be the new anything – be the one and only you. Stay visible and adapt – that way you can be here today, and tomorrow, and the day after too.

Get Feedback

Finding out what customers in your general field want can help. But the best way to adapt to your particular customer base is to get feedback from them directly.

You should collect feedback from your own customers so you can find out what your business should be doing. You can gather information about what your consumers like, dislike, and want from your business in particular.

There are many ways to get customer feedback. Companies often send customers feedback forms through email after a purchase. This way they have the opportunity to tell you exactly what they thought of your customer experience.

Social Media

Social media is useful for businesses today in a plethora of ways. Most importantly, it can get companies in close contact with their customers.

Companies should always have social media pages on sites like Facebook and Twitter. It allows customers to send them questions, complaints, and ideas directly. Businesses can find out what their customers are thinking and change their business to suit them.

Make sure your company is active on social media. Also, ensure customers know they can contact you on these sites with any problems or feedback. That way you can get more information to help you deliver the perfect customer experience.
