You never go wrong by investing in human beings and the communities within them. The main focus of starting any business is to make profits. Marketing plays a very vital role in making profits. Below are some very resourceful tips on marketing;
Collect Testimonials From Your Customers, Using Them in All Your Advertising
These testimonials are evidence that your service or product delivers the promised results. For maximum impact, use the testimonials which specifically describe results the customer enjoyed.
Handle Customer Complaints Fast and With a Positive Attitude
Strive to preserve your customers’ relationship instead of your immediate profit from the transaction. Repeat sales and referral will be your reward if you ensure this.
Use Content Marketing
Content marketing is unbeatable when it comes to attracting sales leads, new clients, and subscribers. Create a blog, website, vlog, podcast or newsletter, etc. Provide FREE information which has real value to your prospective clients, as you offer them the opportunity of purchasing goods and services which are closely linked to the information you give away.
Make Email Marketing Work for Your Business
It is extremely cost effective and one of the most powerful marketing tools available to small businesses. It gives predictable costs and results in little or nothing to use. Unlike other social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, you will not only build your network but will own it!
Build a Super-Valuable Network of Business Contacts
The size of your network is not what is essential, but the influence of the people who are within your network that counts.
Continually Evaluate and Test Everything You Do or Use to Promote Your Business
It is advisable to dedicate 80 percent of your advertising budget in proving promotions and use the other 20 percent to test new variations. Businesses that use this system continue to grow even in highly competitive markets.
Match Your Prices to Your Promises Research Your Competitors for Better Marketing Results
Know what guarantees, offers, prices or fees you are up against; this will make your offering the most attractive to potential clients.
