For many small businesses without fat budget, it has become rather challenging to find new clients. Well, all hope is not lost. If you are running a small business and need new clients, there are better ways to go about it for your desired result.
- Change the old way of looking for new clients
The TV promotion still work. I’m disputing that but what if you are like Amazon or google? Well, in that case, you might have to consider trying new strategy than the one you have been doing before. Come to think of it, technology and our way of life is changing every day. Is it not natural that our ways of getting new customers equally adapt to those changes?
I think yes if you ask me.
This is a new economy. Its no longer the way it used to be. Now, you first need to build trust with the people before you start pitching them your goods and services.
You might consider this a little trick but it’s not: go out and meet more people. Show concern, listen to them, care about what they care about and soon they will ask you what you have brought to the table. That is your chance to introduce yourself on how your products and services can help them. Try this out. Care about the people and they will most likely reciprocate it to you.
- Treat your existing clients well and ask for referrals
Remember that this is a client-driven economy and that your existing clients still hold a strong key to your success. I really mean that.
If you have been good in your services, it won’t be so hard to ask your old clients to refer his or her friends. Of course, this should be done through delicately without overstressing the confidence. Referrals are strong leads in that they are easily turned from cold clients to warm clients, thanks to the trusted channel of contact, the old client. Do not underestimate this opportunity and what it could mean for your business growth.
- Become active participant in local gatherings
Do you want people to know that you are there? Hen reach out to them. I know that Facebook and Twitter are out there, but those means of communication will never replace the direct human contact and socialization. This is opportunity for small business owners.
Every week, there are usually a lot of social events taking place near you. Take the time to participate in those events and soon your face and what you represent will become familiar with the local people. For some reasons, people will do business with you if they know who you are and can trust you. Give them the opportunity and your business will be better for it.
