Tips for attracting new clients

Attracting new customers is one of the most difficult challenges for starting a small business.

First, before you find new customers, you need to understand who your customers are, what you offer customers and what your competition is currently offering in the market. In other words, you need to do some market research, contracting a company to do this research or try to do it yourself.

Listed below are some tips to attract customers:

• Offer discounts and incentives only to new customers. Offers can entice new customers by providing a way to try out your products or services. If you have sold products or services that need to be purchased consistently, consider that the first discount depends on the customer signing a contract for one year of service.

• Reconnect with old customers. Go through your contacts with customers and contact customers, who have no longer been active, with a special offer.

• Improve your website. These days, customers find new businesses mostly by searching online. Make sure your business is fully optimized for mobile.

• Collaborate with businesses that have a similar customer base but are not directly competitive. Collaborating with businesses that offer complementary services offers you the opportunity to take advantage of synergies, which can be very effective in building a business.

• Show your professionalism. Attending discussions or webinars, holding training sessions or workshops will impress potential new clients with your knowledge. Full knowledge of your sector and your product or service is essential to being able to attract interested customers.

• Use online reviews to your advantage. Social media proof is powerful and new customers are more likely to try your business if they see that others value it.

• Offer 2 on 1 deals, "buy one, get one for free" or "bring a friend", to your existing customers. Offer price reductions on future purchases or even commissions if your existing customers introduce you to new customers.

• Let them know that you care about your customers. A reliable way to attract new customers is to show them how well you care for your current customers.

• Combine different marketing tactics. The easiest way to combine different marketing tactics is to use online and traditional marketing strategies.

• Build a list of clients and potential clients

1. Personal contacts: Your friends and family are more likely to buy something from you, even if they are not your target market.

2. Internet Search: If you know the ideal client or client, you can go online and search for them, and then contact them. Social media is another great way to connect with potential businesses that you want to work with, especially LinkedIn.

3. Fairs: Fairs are a great way to connect with other businesses that may fit your market or generate customers. Even if you do not make a sale, events can allow you to create your own contact list.

4. Social Media: Many service-based businesses find social media one of the best places to connect and build relationships with existing and potential clients.

5. Use SEO to attract new customers. Through search engine optimization (SEO), your online store ranks higher on Google.

Your business would be anywhere without your customers, so make sure your customer service is excellent.
