There are new businesses starting every day and you can never be sure which ones will come to be a major competitor, as opposed to those which will fall behind. Unfortunately, even major businesses can fall into the latter group if they don’t find a way to make their customers fall in love with their business.
It’s your goal as a business owner to make sure your customers have an amazing experience with you so that they’ll come back again and again. When a customer doesn’t have a good experience, it can seriously cost your company.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled eight tips to help you make a big impression on your customers so they’ll not only do business with you, but they’ll keep coming back.
- Grab their attention where it matters. Many businesses focus on digital advertising using platforms such as YouTube and Facebook because those are the social media sites millions of people visit every day. However, not many people absorb the advertisements they see online. Users will skip ads, pull out their headphones to ignore an ad, or just scroll past the ads that blend into their Facebook feed. That’s not to say that advertising online is bad for your business, but it’s not a good idea to have the internet be your only play for advertising.
- Use vehicle advertising. One of the best ways to grab someone’s attention is by advertising where your potential customers’ eyes fall. Consumers look out their car windows, stare at sidewalks, look at store windows, and check their mail. That’s why vehicle advertising, signage, and direct mail marketing are still going strong in the digital age. They advertise in places where consumers aren’t already looking for something.
- Be the go-to business for something specific. One of the first things business experts will tell you is to find a niche in your industry. That’s because, when you’re the go-to business for your niche, you’re easy to find for potential consumers. Even if the niche you’re in is on the bigger side, there’s always something you can do that makes your business unique. Find what that uniqueness is and use it to your advantage.
- Provide legendary customer service on all fronts. Many businesses make the mistake of only improving their customer service in certain areas to make their company customer-focused. Rather, you need to make sure that everyone is on board in every department. Every employee you hire is a brand ambassador for your business. A bad experience with one worker is a bad experience with every worker in your customer’s eyes. That said, consider conducting customer satisfaction training for everyone in your company when they first sign on to work with you.
- Admit your mistakes, fix problems, and build on. Consider the reviews your customers have left you in the past. Were they angry or disappointed? Did they have a great experience but something was lacking? Don’t just apologize for these problems and move on. Make sure you’re admitting to your company’s mistakes and that you’re coming up with ways to fix those problems. When you create solutions for these problems, you’re helping your business grow and proving to your customers that you care.
- Fix any communication problems. Communication is key, not only between your management and your employees but also between your employees and customers. You want to streamline communication in your workplace so your employees can accurately and efficiently provide customers with the information they need when they need it. This goes for anything from holidays hours to sales. The better the communication, the better your customers will feel about your company.
- Have authenticity. Consumers are naturally skeptical when it comes to a new company because they know you want their business. The solution to their skepticism is authenticity. When you’re authentic in how you act and behave with your customers, they’ll be more likely to trust you. Granted, you don’t want to be so overly authentic that you become unprofessional. But let your customer service team be real enough that your customers feel they’re being helped by people who actually care about them.
- Offer your customers a guarantee. Customers like a guarantee because it tells them that they can definitely expect results from your business. Just be sure that the guarantee you give them is actually something you can guarantee. Examples of this include two-day shipping, great customer service, and full refunds.
