Know what your prospect customers need.

You may probably have an idea about promotions and advertisements done online, but that’s not doing you any good if you are not aware of what your customers need. Are you even sure they are your prospects? Do take note that you may be plugging and promoting your products and/or services all you want, but if it’s not what the customers need, then you’re just wasting time and money. If you regularly frequent Facebook groups and online forums, see what the members frequently talk about.

Deal in a way you wanted to be dealt with.

Your sincerity as a concerned seller/merchant/service provider matters. Know that whom you are marketing, advertising, and selling to will be detrimental to achieving your goals. Treat people, not only your customers but your own employees, the way you would like them to treat you. Your subscribers, buyers, and distributors are key to your online success.

Listen to your Market

Ask and participate.

This is oftentimes not taken seriously. Asking your customers, holding polls, and getting their feedback on your product or service will be very much helpful in reaching your aims. Chat up with people on Facebook groups that matter to you and what you are offering. Talk to them. Reach out to them.

Offer something attractive.

It’s not just about the headlines of your marketing site nor its interface itself, but it’s also about willingly giving something for free — may it be ebooks,  trials, discounts, or the tester itself —  that would entice them to buy your own product or avail of your service. Create promotions and giveaways that would generate more traffic as they link back to your site.

Connect with your clients
