Stop blowing off the “follow up” with your clients and buyers. Just because no one is complaining does not mean that they like your product. Don’t be too quick to gloat. Putting aside a few minutes and making sure that your clients are okay is not a hard thing to do. If you do business online, then an email will suffice. Do it no more than a week after your customer received your products. Don’t only think about what you can get -also think about giving. Businesses are naturally created to make money, so the focus tends to be on oneself and becoming more profitable. Sometimes, though, you should give something to someone else. If someone needs help with something that you’re good at, offer your assistance. These things help endear yourself to your market and to your fellow entrepreneurs. Even as you are helping others, you are also helping yourself as others will be glad to do business with someone who goes out of their way to help others. So start looking around for people you can help out.
Make up a few words that will let people know about your business. This is known as an elevator speech which is basically a few sentences that you deliver in the amount of time that a elevator ride takes. The speech normally takes around 30 seconds. Definitely don’t let it go on for more than sixty. It can consist of a few sentences that describe you and your company. If you have an long elevator speech, most people will not be too interested if they do not know you. If someone wants to get additional info, they will ask you for it.
You can easily get bad habits when you do not pay attention to everything that you are doing. For anyone who works in the internet marketing industry or has a business, this gets done all of the time. You are basically trying to get new clients so that you can grow your business and become profitable. You are not really paying attention to the little things. If you really want to build a successful business, though, you will address these “little things” and develop great, productive and professional habits instead.
