Growing your business means consistently gaining new clients. See how you can leverage social media presence to broaden your clientele base. Here are 4 easy steps.
Check where your clients are located
It is quite easy to check where your clients might be staying. This info is available through social media, online, or mail, to name a few. If you have done this, try sending them a message without appearing too pushy.
The type of business you are in plays a crucial role when locating clients. Many business owners go to online forums and communities of competitors apart from visiting those of their own business. Social media can also be your source of upcoming events related to your industry. Although most events and conventions charge reasonable fees, attending these events present an opportunity to interact with potential clients.
Be the solution
Once you have done the initial contact with possible clients, you have to make them realize that they need your product or service. In other words, you can be the solution to their present concerns, issues, needs, or even challenges of daily living. When they realize this, they will more likely agree to sample your wares. But how can you convince them? First, try to understand what their concerns are. By listening carefully to their pressing needs at the moment, you can at this point relate their needs to your product or service. You must be able to explain how your product or service can help with their present dilemma. Now how can social media help? By simply creating valuable content or helpful blog posts, you are spreading the good news that you can be a solution. But you shouldn’t stop there. You must also boost online presence with physically getting in touch with clients. Connect with them physically after engaging them online.
Be your industry’s guru
More clients will take notice of you if you know the ins and outs of your business. You also display deep and thorough understanding of your industry. When you can talk about your business, product, or service the way a guru does, then you will come through as someone who is an expert in the industry. Who wouldn’t want to seek the advice or opinion of a master or guru? Virtually, everyone will. People don’t want to waste time. They want a fast response and the only way for you to quickly respond is to know your business and product by heart.
Volunteer for a cause
You can reach out to potential clients by inviting them online to be part of a cause. Why not choose a charity that may somehow benefit from your business. Pick organizations even small foundations that are in sync with your values and commitment. This is one way of increasing your clientele base while enhancing your business image.
By following these simple steps, you will soon attain your goals of growing and positioning your business to where it should be.
