TGIF! I hope you’re doing good with your UK home business. If you’re still looking to improve it, here are two tips to increase engagement. This is in continuation of the infographic just this Wednesday, which is about starting your business at zero cost. (If you missed it, click here to catch up).
It isn’t enough just to have a lot of customers or a pool of loyal customers. It’s also important to interact with them, as well as to allow them to interact with you. The more personal your business feels, the more your customers will trust you. And with trust comes word-of-mouth recommendations, bringing you even more customers.
So how can you drive engagement to your UK home business? Two simple steps.
Because of the internet, it’s easier than ever to connect with others.
Utilise the many social networks available to you – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, you name it – to maximise the lines of communication available. You don’t even need a landline phone these days, thanks to Skype, WhatsApp, and other voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) apps. Let people know that they can contact you freely, and of course respond to their queries promptly. Businesses who don’t respond fast enough will turn many customers off.
Another good way to drive engagement is skill exchange
This is more of a business-to-business (B2B) method. Basically, just find someone with the skills you need, and offer your skills in exchange for his skills, and vice versa. This way, you’ll be filling in each other’s lack of skills, so it’s a win-win solution. He pays you for your service, and likewise you pay him for his service. In the end, both of you end up making money. It’s a really helpful thing, especially for a UK small business keeping costs down, as you don’t have to hire permanent staff just for that. And since you can do that online, you don’t even have to meet face to face.
