Keeping your startup business connected with the world and your customers is the best way to start it off; often, many startup businesses don’t have as much connectivity with the outside world as it should have, meaning that it starts off slower than it should, so what can you do to make your business more connected and therefore more successful? Well, if you read on you’re going to learn what you can do!
Have A Social Media Account
Social media is like a wildfire that has spread around the world with it’s popularity. There is an estimated 3 billion active social media accounts being used in the world today, and this is a fantastic base to find and interact with customers. A lot of people use social medias like Facebook, and are much more comfortable using them to get into contact with a company because it’s easier to do so! Thinking from a customer perspective, would you rather have to write a formal email to a company to find out some simple information, or drop them an informal message on social media? It’s going to be the latter, so get on it to up your game!
Call Answering Service
In businesses and in life, we often just don’t have the time to answer a phone call, and in the hectic filled days of the startup business owner, you’re going to find you have very little time to spare, which is why it’s good to hire a 24 hour answering service for our company. This will mean that any calls you cannot answer will be answered by this service, which is useful not only for when you can’t pick up the phone, but also for international callers too that will be ringing from different timezones when you may be asleep, making sure you don’t lose out on any potential business!
Have Your Details Advertised
Your business’s details are the way that people are going to know what your telephone, email and physical addresses are, and they are very important if someone wants to get into contact with you! If people can’t find your details then you’re going to be losing them as a customer because they’re going to give up on the interest that they have. If you display all your details clearly on every technological presence that you have, customers and businesses will get into contact with you because they can follow through on their interest!
Doing all of these things will mean that your business stays connected all of the time so that the people you want to talk to can get a hold of you! Having your details displayed means that everyone can contact you, having an answering service means you’re never going to miss a call and so you’ll not lose out on any business and make use of social media to getting in touch with you that little bit easier. Like anything, owning a business comes with it’s own set of myths, so read this to see which ones are real and which ones are fake!
