Utilize the most important element in your business – the Internet!
With the rise of technology, we are seeing more and more people go online to check their bank account, pay a bill, read the news, watch videos, and of course, determine what companies to do business with. For this reason, it is absolutely essential that your business has a strong online presence. While it was once an option to have a website and certain social media pages, it is an imperative for every business these days. Quite simply, if you don’t, you will miss out on regular business. Much of what people find about your business online will determine whether or not they want to do business with you.
It’s a wise practice to provide people with an option to submit a quote request online for a service or product. If you can create a portal that instantly provides rate quotes, that’s even better! With this feature, it is essential that you respond to these online quotes right away. If you can respond to a quote within minutes, regardless of the time the request is received, your chances of closing that deal go up as much as 70 percent. Remember that this can be outside of normal working hours as people will be at work during the day and then browsing the web in the evening.
Your website should reflect that you recognize and celebrate the people who make your business special – your clients! Highlighting your clients will show that you truly care for the consumer, and have nothing to hide in terms of reviews and ratings. Many companies have opted to have pictures of clients on their “About Us” page, claiming that their business isn’t about the employees; it’s about the customer. Alongside the customers, it’s a good idea to feature the charities or causes that are close to the business’s heart. Establishing your company as a supporter of a local charity will earn you bonus points when clients are looking for community-based businesses.
In addition, contacting the business must be possible at any time. A phone answering service is a great way to keep clients in contact when they need it the most.
