Market Information

No one wants to experience what’s called “buyer’s remorse.” “Buyer’s remorse” is defined as the regret that someone experiences after buying a product. The disappointment could come from the product costing too much money or just being an impulse purchase that was unnecessary.  Consumers typically like to do a lot of research or read reviews before buying a product. Make sure that you offer potential clients concise, information that they can download, read on your website, or find on social media.

The trick is prompting the client to enter an email before receiving the information. Marketing should always include a call-to-action. Then, make sure to follow up on your customers that put in their email address. Just make sure to follow-up on the leads that you get.

Upsell and Cross-Sell your Current Customers.

If you have 100 loyal customers that already spend “x” amount of dollars, why not just get them to spend a little more? Training your employees how to cross-sell won’t break the bank and is an easy way to increase revenue. Plus, if your current clients already value the organization, then they won’t regret investing more money into products and services that they find to be trustworthy.

Follow-Up with Current Clients.

Don’t be afraid to nudge those who already have made purchases. Your small business should be memorable. Don’t let them forget about what your business offers. It is often easier to narrow in on consumers that have already bought from you before than targeting new buyers. Send them emails that advertise new products or remind them to reorder products that they have already purchased.

Businesses often get stuck in the same old way of operating. Nothing in life is constant but change. Think about those morning meetings that you may hold each week. Some information needs to be sent out in an email so that employees can spend more time on other tasks that will help the organization, such as bringing in more sales.

Are you spending too much money on the items that you need to keep your company afloat? Negotiating with vendors about their pricing is possible. Should you go digital? Printing (especially in color) costs a lot of money. Maybe some of the reports that your employees are sending you could be formatted into a PDF.

Enhance Employee Satisfaction

Customer retention matters along with employee retention. If your employees are satisfied, then you won’t have to take the time or money to hire or train new people. Competitive pay is essential, but typically job satisfaction ranks high on why people do not leave their jobs.
