Whether you’re just starting out or have been running your business for a long time. Are a small company with a handful of employees or a larger multi-site corporation. There is something we all have in common, the need for new customers.
These days, every business has to work hard to attract new customers so, we have gathered a few ideas that you could try to help you bring in new business.
1. Word of mouth works
If you’ve already got a number of customers, give them an incentive to recommend their friends. If each current customer recommended one friend, you could double your customer base very quickly! The “recommend a friend” idea is widely used from small to large businesses. You could offer your customers money off their next purchase when they recommend a friend or you could always reward them with a gift to say thank you. Gift Cards are a perfect incentive to get referrals if a cash discount isn’t right for your business.
2. Make your website customer friendly
If your online presence doesn’t compare to those of your competitors, then it needs updating. Fast. If there isn’t a good journey for customers to follow on your website, then chances are they will leave and carry on searching elsewhere.
