Internet Marketing is always evolving. There are always new social media channels to explore, additional changes to Google’s algorithm, and updated “best practices” for online marketers. So you may wonder how Internet Marketing can help your business when nothing ever remains the same.
To really win online, you need more than just a solid paid advertising strategy. You also need to lay the groundwork for your entire company’s online presence, from your website to your local listings to your social media pages and be accessible to your customers. By making sure your business shows up and tells a consistent story across the web, you’ll soon have a presence that convinces your prospects to choose you over the competition. And when your web presence shines, your paid campaigns will work that much better.
Good customer service has grown increasingly important in this aggressive business climate. No matter how perfect your product is or how well marketed, if customers feel that you don’t care about them, they will look for a company that does. So take some time to reassess how reachable you are and use the following advice to take steps towards becoming more accessible to your customers.
The first piece of advice is, in some ways, also the most obvious one: Provide a contact number on your website, your business cards and (if applicable) on your product packaging. If you signal to your customers that you are able and willing to receive comments and suggestions, they will sense a level of confidence and credibility in you and your products. Inserting a solicitation for feedback will make you appear more accessible to your clientele and can, in turn, make them more loyal to your product and company. Like Facebook, Twitter allows your customers to reach you anytime from anywhere.
Looking after your customers helps build customer loyalty. Selling more to existing customers can be far more cost-effective and profitable than finding new ones. If you have the means (i.e. requisite IT support, personnel, and budget), providing a live chat feature on your website is a perfect way to make it easier for your customers to contact you. With a live chat, customers are able to interact with customer support over the Internet, in real time, through instant messaging. Services like live chat instill a level of comfort in your clients, as they will feel that their questions can be answered at any time.
