INDUSTRY BASED BLOGS
A blog is a great way of sharing your knowledge with your customers or prospects that are looking into working with you. you could post these blog on industry based groups on social media sites, or the groups your target market would be in to better educate them. It is also important to connect these blogs to your website as it lets google know that you are a credible source who is active in his/her community. People often tend to buy from people that offer them credible information and educates them rather then enforcing a product or service on them. It also leads to long lasting relationship your audience would love to visit your site again for more quality information to better their decision giving your business returning customers. A gateway to attract more customers.
Which I call the “GIVE TO GET” approach, often times giving without the hopes of any return or gratitude will pay you more and lead to a healthier relationship. A gift of reference has more monetary value as it costs you nothing but it means a lot. It leads to many future opportunities, as people tend to remember the favours and they will vouch for you when your services or products are mentioned.
