Connecting with your customers is the key to building a real relationship with them, and above all it means that you are making the effort to get to know them. The personal touch is more important than it ever has been, but understanding how to connect with them is important.
Is it possible for you to find the balance and be professional while making a personal connection with your customer? Today I’ll share with you how you can make this connection while building your business and earning respect.
Why Connecting with Your Customers Improves Their Lives
Commercials and other types of ads bombard you every day, so it’s no surprise that you often wonder how your marketing affects your customer. Is your marketing getting them to take action?
The ability to entertain your customers is great, but it’s also ideal that you get your message across. The message has to be relevant to them. If you can create marketing campaigns that are interesting and educational for your customers, then you’ll be able to connect with them on a personal level.
Here are some things to keep in mind as you build a marketing campaign to start connecting with your customers.
1. You need to know your customer inside and out.
2. You need to know where your customer lives.
3. You need to know where your customer works.
4. You need to know what your customer likes to eat and drink.
5. You need to know what zip code they live in.
6. What type of car does your customer drive?
7. Where does your customer prefer to vacation?
8. What is their favorite color?
These are all relevant points to make because they make up the ideal person that will be buying from you.
You have to add value but you won’t be certain of where you can add it unless you study your customer inside and out. You can have a wonderful product that offers all of the bells and whistles under the Sun, but keep in mind that none of it matters unless it’s going to solve your customer’s problem.
What is your customer looking for? What do they want most? Is your customer seeking to solve a problem about what to eat? What to wear? What is it that you want to accomplish?
One of the greatest things that businesses miss today is getting the customer to say “wow”. There should be a sense of urgency in any marketing campaign to not just entice someone to buy from you but there should be a sense of urgency to give the customer an experience.
While the goal is to make the experience unforgettable for the customer, it takes time to build a marketing campaign. You won’t be able to build something that attacks all of the problems overnight. You need to get to know your customer but you also need to focus on learning more about their life and what other problems they face.
Giving the customer an experience is the best way to approach running your business, but connecting with your customer is an absolute must.
