There are many ways to get your business name out there. However, one form is sure to attract potential customers more so than others. What is this? By engaging your clients now, and making them want to share your business. Do you, yourself, ever wander across something so great that you must share it with your friends? This should be the approach you take with your business and FGmarket has a few tips and ideas to help market your business this way.
First, ask yourself a question. Why do you think you share or anyone else shares anything for that matter? They find your content interesting, entice them with an incentive, competition and again, having eye-catching content. You must always keep these in mind when you are developing a marketing strategy for your company. Why? You want your current clients to share your business with their friends, then their friends will share it with their friends and it’s a constant on-going cycle.
How you integrate sharing into your marketing plan? There are many ways that you can do this, however, think about how you see other businesses doing this. You can create a refer-a-friend program where you ask them to refer your business to their friends and if they shop there, both you and your referral will receive a discount.
Another way to get your customers sharing is by creating a unique contest for them and their referrals to participate in. Create an entry form, this way you can collect data from them and generate leads. Also, don’t forget that there has to be something enticing to enter your contest, like a $500 shopping spree. Think out-of-the-box and from your customer’s point of view.
However, if contests aren’t your thing, you can always create a fun poll for your customers to engage in. Ask them what they would like to see in your store, what trends they are looking forward to for the upcoming season, what are their favorite gift items to buy; engage them. They will feel as if they have a role in your business and that their opinion truly does matter.
These three things aren’t the only ways to get your customers sharing your amazing business with their friends. You could also develop giveaways and come up with great deals that are only happening on a certain day or for two hours in your store.
Sharing is a great way to market your business. You can promote it all you want, however, when a consumer hears about your great business from their friend, they want to check it out. Sharing is a great way to spread the word of your business.
