Is the need to get more customers keeping you from taking a vacation? Are you putting in longer hours instead of celebrating a holiday weekend or doing what you love best? Here are three ways to get more customers and take a break from the business of doing business.
Word-of-mouth marketing doesn’t require your presence. Offer a reward for referrals. Let your loyal customers and satisfied clients benefit from praising your product or service, and you will benefit with new prospects.
Add fresh content
People, and quite possibly your ideal customers, are constantly searching the Internet for answers. Match your keywords to their search terms and you don’t have to be present to win. Increase your online presence by pre-scheduling new articles, blogs, e-zines, tweets, and other online updates. Provide valuable information and you increase the likelihood of doing business together.
Hire a virtual assistant experienced in content creation
Leave content creation in the capable hands of your virtual assistant. A VA who is also a wordsmith or ghostwriter knows how to take your ideas and create content that answers the needs of your target market. Articles, autoresponders, blogs, e-zines, informational products, opt-in giveaways, social networking updates, and Web pages can all attract customers in your absence so go enjoy a well-deserved vacation.
