The transitioning period between the hot summer season and the cooler winter months is a great time to reevaluate the aspects of your business that could use some improvements.
What better time than now to ramp up your business and build up anticipation for the busy holiday season among us?
That’s why today were sharing a few quick and easy ways to instantly improve your business. The tips provided below are so easy to do that you or your employees, in the office or on the go, can do them. Can’t you feel the stress of the holiday season already subsiding?
1. Update or remove any outdated contact or business information.
Checking your website, your social media accounts, your business cards, and any other marketing materials you have from this year for outdated or incorrect information can provide a tremendous impact on your business.
Are there any promotions that are no longer active and can be removed? Has any information regarding office location, hours of operation, telephone numbers, or email addresses changed recently? Are there any events, promotions, specials or offers coming up in the next few months that your current or potential clients are unaware of? These little details can easily be forgotten and can wreack havoc on your business operations once the busy season arrives and you’re in over your head doing real business stuff.
2. Inform everyone on those changes.
After you’ve made the correct changes needed on your marketing materials, inform your clients and prospects of these updates by email and various social media updates. Not only will this help improve the relationship between you and your buyers, it can also help drive traffic to your website by directing users to find out more information — All of which will improve and increase your brand awareness.
3. Continue to improve by asking questions.
If you find yourself wondering what more you could be providing your clients or what improvements they feel should be made that you’re unaware of, reach out and ask them!
There’s no one better to ask than the direct source, right?
Improve the engagement of your target audience by asking questions through polls, surveys or fill in the blank questions. Improve your social media engagement by posting it as a status update or improve the quality of your email list as it can help determine which contacts are still active and engaged, and those that are not.
The key is to evolve just as naturally as the seasons do throughout the year. Continue to engage clients by asking for more feedback, or their input on a new idea, recipe or an event coming up. Your clients are what make your business what it is today, and it’s their influence that will help improve it tomorrow.
