Just some words to live by that you can control 🙂 Embrace your day all!
Okay so I am going to be really honest here…..I used to pride myself in staying close to my long distance friends and extended family, you know? The people who mean the most to me. But the last few years I have really been remiss. Holiday time comes around so quickly and reminds me all to much about how I need to step it up.
Yes, I use my Send Out Cards account and send cards once in while to just to let those people know I am thinking of them. But this last year, again I have been remiss on that part also. Life gets in the way right? Well…I am vowing to not let it anymore!
Yes the cards are awesome……BUT the best way just sometimes is to reach out and call, or take the drive to go see them right! Hey even Skype is so much fun! I did this with my oldest daughter, husband, and their 6 kids who live 14 hours away. It was crazy and noisy most of the time, full of laughs, jokes, serious conversation, and yes some tears. It was WONDERFUL! ***BTW ….my photo used here is my youngest grandson looking up and making sure he can see the cool waterfalls***
All too often we get caught up on FB messaging, or texting, that we forget to pick up the phone and call, or get in the car to drive. Let’s just not let this happen anymore, are you with me here?
So let’s stop putting off those coffee dates with friends. Stop putting off those phone calls with family members and only waiting for special occasions to connect. Let’s reach out today okay?
Let me know your thoughts – I’d love to hear from you!
1 – Maintain an engaging presence on social media.
If you don’t already have an account for your business on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linked In or Pinterest. So go do it now 🙂 Being active on social media not only lets you chat with your customers and attract new ones. Put yourself out there!
2 – Know your customers
Follow up after a sale….send a FB message or email them. What do they think of the candle or makeup, or pair of cool shoes they just bought? Let them know you’re available to chat if they have any questions. After all …you are interested in more than their money, right? Send a Birthday Card, Thank you Card...any kind of card (well you know what kind of card not to send…..)
3 – Ask questions, Ask for feedback, Ask them for their advice, Take them to lunch, Give them a ring…..(no not that kind) …
Now tell us, what are some ways that you stay in front of your customers?
