Welcome to Goody Lady, please join in and enjoy the many conversations we are having here. Today’s post is all about how I find your customers. I am out of my house just about daily, except Sunday, that is my lazy and family day where I do not do much of anything else. I do look at my blog and do things with it, at night when everyone’s asleep. Back to how I find your customers.
I see people as a connection in some way. It is an interesting challenge to learn how I can help them. I like to watch people, their body language, their facial expressions, their tone of voice even. Even when online, I watch what they post, I take note of how things are going for them. Some people I send messages to, to help them come back to center if I have noticed they have veered off to one side or the other. I have even sent messages to some people giving them the link here to my blog that allows them to request a free gift. If I see posts or replies that offers an opportunity for me to share that I can get them a bag of goodies, of course I share it with them.
While I am out and about, I am always looking for an opportunity to share your business with them. I have a business card, but it surely is not your traditional business card, as I am not your typical type of person as you may have noticed. My business card tells them to head to my website link and request a free gift. people love to get free things. People like to learn and experience different things, even if it is the same product, but shown by a different person it can give them a different experience even though it is the same thing. It is all in how the product is presented to give a person that experience.
That is what Goody Lady is about… An Expeience
So how else do I go out and find people to grow my prospect list for you, as a business owner? I do it in many ways. I came across How To find Customers, if you have not read it, now is your chance. So as a business, how many on that list do you do – on a regular basis? I mean let’s get real and honest here. What kind of mindset are you in when you go to any event? I hear so many businesses complain about things are slow, or some other thing that is happening. I see some of them continuously doing the same thing, but want better results, how does that work? I hear the I don’t have time, money, or other resources, but have any of them sat down and wrote down all the negatives? How about putting positives next to those negatives. I do truly understand about no money, or not enough money, it even happens to me. I take that same “excuse” of no money, put it on one side of the paper or at the top, then brainstorm how can I turn that around, you would be very surprised with yourself what you come up with. I know I surprised myself when I recently did it. How are you reacting to your negatives?
Back to Customer Finding.
While I am out and about, I see some people with business attire on, some I can tell it is a small business or like a home/small business I wait to see if they chat with anyone around them, no … nothing! umm why? I know it comes easier for some people, but for others it can be hard to strike up a conversation with a stranger. The more you challenge yourself starting at baby steps, the easier it gets. I find different ways to chat with people, there is always something going on within the surrounding that can spark up a small chit-chat. I started with challenging myself to talk to just one person a day, then moved it on up and for every three people I chatted with, I was handing them this free gift offer. Now I hand them out more effortlessly, I have not seen anyone turn down a free gift offer as of yet.
How else do I find customers besides the things listed on the how to find customers link. In addition to attending many events both business and for fun, I advertise on other websites, I even barter with a couple of people as well. I have a couple of places where my business card is displayed, though when the cards finish there, I will be changing how the card looks so it is more flashy. I post on the different social medias and get anywhere between two to ten different people requesting Goody Lady bags – daily, that does not include event planners or places that would like to have a take one basket in their office or place of business. So far I have been doing minimal advertising and promoting and yet the prospect list keeps growing. I am gearing up for some major advertising, promoting and marketing campaigns to get your company even more exposure. Now I am in need of companies to step up, put on their Big Business Hats and get added to these fun amazing bags and get yourself some new customers! There are only 10 spots per bag, the minimum of bags to participate in is 200, this gets you into direct contact with a minimum of 200 people… offline! This gets you in front of countless amount of people online! You have so much potential by using Goody Lady.
I want to give 1000 people a Goody Lady bag by September. Will you be one of the companies that will be a part of that?
I do many things behind the scenes to give your business as much exposure as possible. When you see yourself in the blog post, that is not the only time it gets in front of people, I have a system so that each blog posts gets circulated throughout the social medias multiple times.
Now let Goody Lady do all the work for you! Have more time for yourself and your family, after all isn’t that why you started your own business, to work smarter not harder?
I find customers for you both online and offline.
This is a direct approach to finding customers. Give customers an experience they will not forget.
