Attracting Customers To Your Business 2018 Style!

Being a business owner in 2018 is no easy feat. After all, the competition is quite high. Here are a few excellent tips on attracting customers more suitable for today.


Always Have A Target Customer Group; And Know Who They Are

This might seem a little confusing, but one of the smartest ways to attract new customers, is to get to know your existing customers. By identifying your target customer group, and their general age group gender etc. it makes it easier on you to provide what they want. Thanks to the internet, this is not going to be a problem at all. But if you want better, more honest opinions, such as to identify products that truly resonate with your clients, provide a limited discount for purchases if they do a review.

Provide A Confident Front

Know your business inside out. Know it’s every fault as well as every strong point. If ever a customer approaches you with a question, be that it’s at your physical store or online, always have a solution or an alternate option for it. Never seem clueless. Train your employees and staff on this as well. Customers of 2018 are generally fast shoppers with tight schedules, who don’t have time to wait until your employee “check it with the manager” so being able to provide instant solutions is vital. Remember, having reviews of “clueless and time wasting” staff is never a great thing.


Be Seen On All Platforms

It’s 2018, people expect you to be seen on all platforms. If you haven’t already done so, put yourself on the google map; giving yourself a legit identification. Once you have done this, it’s also important that you set up a few social media platforms. Yes; “Few”. Use these social media platforms to connect with your customers, and keep them updated on your business’s current trends. Make sure to employ a social media manager who knows how to be efficient as well as charming. This doesn’t mean bombarding your customers with posts though¾be smart about how much you post.


Make Online Shopping An Option

Like we mentioned above, it’s 2018, and people expect you to be seen on all platforms. providing them the option of shopping online is always a great idea. If possible, offer them the option of home delivery. If that is not possible at the moment, or even if the nature of your business (such as service providing) will not require you to put your products online for purchase, it’s still a good idea to have an updated website for your business. It just makes it more “real” to today’s customers. If you can’t do it yourself, employ a website design company for this purpose.

Create Meaningful Partnerships

Have you heard of friends with benefits? Well, this is something like that¾only for businesses. Create meaningful friendships with complementing businesses. Have discounts and sales that will connect the two business’. This is a great way to introduce each other to new customers; plus, the current day customers really like collaborating events like this. Remember to use your social media platform to create the right hype for it!
