How to get more clients to use your services/products

So you have started your business and you expect that clients will be knocking at your door begging for your product or service…but sadly it doesn’t happen. Here are a few helpful tips that will help you get more clients:

  1. Get Social

Meaning, use social media to your advantage. Set up a Facebook page, a linkedin profile and a website. And if you are into retail an Instagram and pinterest page will work wonders. Post often and post great content. This will build trust and will encourage people to come back for more.

  1. Get Out and Socialize

After you have set up your social space, it is time for you to socialize. Go to networking events, go to different functions. Browse the local newspapers to see what’s going on around the country and get moving. Remember to walk with your business card!

  1. Talk about your business

Every chance you get, try to talk about your business. Not just about what you do, but listen to people and then share with them how you can help them. Remember, it’s about the client! Try to talk to at least 3 new people every day about your business and how it can help them or provide them with a service.

  1. Know what your business is about

Simply meaning, on social media and when you socialize, you should be able to sum up your business in 1 to 2 sentences. Anything longer than that and you are babbling and your potential client has lost interest. My business can help you with ___________________________________.  Know what your business is about and practice saying it so that you know when an opportunity presents itself.

  1. Follow up

One way to lose a potential client is not to follow up. Either via email or telephone call. When you network or attend any social event, sure you are sharing your business card but chances are you also collected some cards and these persons may have been interested in your service. Drop them an email or telephone call extending the invitation to talk more about how you can help each other. Follow up and then follow through.

  1. Ask for referrals

Ask for referrals from family, from friends, from acquaintances. Ask people you know to refer your services and when you snag that new client ask them to refer you to at least 5 new people who they think can benefit from your services. Ask you just may receive.

It’s all NEW

It’s a new year, a new month and a new beginning for so many of us. Over the last week alone I have heard many persons say that 2016 is going to be the year that big things happen to them. I do not know what makes so 2016 so special or why this sudden surge of enthusiasm (maybe I am attracting it because I am also excited) but what I do know is that there is no better time than like the present to make new plans, set new goals and design a brand new life.

2015 was a rough year for many of us. We lost loved ones, businesses closed down, lost jobs or business just did not seem to grow. But I am here to tell you that you are not alone and that with the right mindset, the right team and the right resources, 2016 is going to be awesome.

This year, we are going to focus on positive thinking, creating the right mindset to run an uber successful business, strategies and promotions and building a fabulous team. So hop on board the 2016 train and let’s make our mark in this world. Who is with me?
