4 Ways To Get Extra Attention For Your Business
by Arina Smith Business Development 18 September 2018
You know you’ve got a great business. You know you’ve got a great product. One of the steps that people miss out on, though, to make their business successful, is that extra little bit of attention. And that’s where giving a close look to details is going to get you the best payoff.
So where might this attention come from? You could improve your online web presence. You could purchase some physical signs to go outside or inaccessible locations. You can start improving the quality of your social media conversations. Also, you can talk to people face-to-face, which is so often missing from business transactions these days.
Online Web Presence:
Many people are going to find your business by looking online. So how good is your website? Does it compare with people who are industry, leaders? Is someone going to look at your site and think that you have high-quality products, or are they going to believe that you’re still an amateur? By improving your website design and functionality, you’re giving people a more natural way to have an excellent first impression of you. Think about the times that you’ve browsed for different services. Does it make a difference to you how well a company presents itself online? If the answer is ‘yes,’ then that should give you a clue about what your own plan should be.
If you have a store, do you have high-quality signs? There’s a vast difference between a store that looks good from a branding and aesthetic standpoint, and one that does not. If you have cheap-looking signs, people are going to relate that to cheap products. If you have compelling designs and excellent printing, people are going to relate that to the quality of your business and the quality of your product as well. Which direction do you want people’s minds to go when they see a physical representation of your brand?
Social Media Conversations
When you work with social media for business purposes, it can be a distinct benefit to your company and your brand. However, there are conventions that you should follow, and you do need to recognize that it’s the changing landscape. What worked last week isn’t necessarily going to work next week when it comes to advertising and promoting online. You have to work with current trends to figure out how to talk with people online in a way that seems non-promotional but also works to give your company a better presence.
Sometimes it feels like a lost art when it comes to talking to people face-to-face about your company and your products. So many people hide behind screens and keyboards that those personal interactions are sporadic. If you want to get customers and clients for life, and you want to get that extra attention to what you’re selling, then being in the same room as the person and talking to them while picking up body language and visual cues can make the difference in competitive advantage.
