A well-planned digital marketing strategy can, quite simply and easily, take your brand to a whole other level. Digital marketing draws clients in, in the hope of converting leads into actual customers. Once you have the customers there, the game-changer is to now build a long-lasting relationship with them.
There are several ways to create a connection and build a relationship:
This one is important. Taking the time to genuinely get to know customers who can make all the difference when it comes to brand loyalty. Obviously, the quality of the work is the most important thing, but after that, establishing a genuine connection is what binds people to your brand.
Treat them well
No matter the client, big or small, treat them with respect and offer the best service, always. Word-of-mouth referrals can make or break a business and let’s be honest, people talk, so give them something fabulous to talk about. Ensure you have an excellent customer service system in place, including after-sales support and that customers can talk to a real person if they want to.
Know the ins and outs
Educate yourself about your clients’ industries; find out what obstacles they face and learn the associated jargon. In this way, you will be able to better understand where your product or service fits in and how you can position your brand to suit your clients’ needs.
Pick up the phone
It may seem antiquated to make a real-life phone call, but sometimes it is necessary to communicate effectively with customers. Yes, emails are an excellent way to communicate, but often, when things don’t go as planned, email messages can be misconstrued and result in dissatisfaction all around. Rather phone the customer to discuss the problem – it removes the confusion surrounding tone and intention which sometimes exists in emails.
