In today’s competitive market place how do we stand out in a sea of sameness? There are lots of people doing what we do, how can we make sure people see us?
The first thing is you can’t sell a secret, so if you are not putting yourself out there in the social media world, or directly connecting with your clients through your own form of a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system, then you may be losing valuable connection.
Business is tough. We have competitors who are constantly trying to do it better than us, but while they are doing it better, have they perhaps forgotten the one important thing that we all still love, the human touch. Being thanked, being recognised and appreciated for spending money with your company. We need to look seriously at how we are staying connected with our clients/customers on a daily basis.
If you have a service-based business, how well are you looking after people that shop or work with you. Are you staying in touch, keeping them up to date on what you can do for them, sharing your ideas and thoughts with them, making them feel important?
If you have a brand, and you have a very clear understanding in what that brand can do for others, then sing it to the world! Be loud and proud and willing to share and build long lasting relationships for business survival.
How do we do this? There is so much to talk about in this area but here are 3 important ones
We need to start thinking differently. Experiment, try different things, until we work out what works for us. No point standing there talking about how tough times are, that is not going to change anytime soon. Learn to adapt and make the changes needed so people want to do business with you.
Look after people, loyalty still does exist.
After being a business owner for 25 years I have now sold my business to concentrate on my mentoring clients. I want to help people to find their WHY and their HOW to make the necessary changes to improve their business and personal lives. Taking control of where you are, but more importantly where you want to be, is what it is all about.
You need to work out what is stopping you, what changes need to be made or improved on, so you can move forward with gusto and determination. Go get the life you want, it’s ready for you. I would love to help you. Please get in touch for a chat via this website, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
