3. BE A KIND LEADER
Leading by example is a great way to create returning buyers! When customers know that you not only care about your product but are mindful of the way you are treating others, they are more likely to return to your business again and again!
Think about a business that you know and love. What makes them a company that you enjoy buying from? How do the company’s leaders treat their customers and workers?
4. SAY THANK YOU
Chances are, you have heard your parents or teachers remind you of the importance of saying thank you! When it comes to running a business, these two words become even more important. Think creatively about ways you can thank your customers for purchasing from you. Could you create an email that is sent directly to a buyer’s inbox? Will you print adorable thank you flyers that you designed yourself to include with orders? The options are limitless!
5. ASK FOR SUGGESTIONS
Your customers are the ones who will ultimately determine your business’s success, so it’s no surprise that their feedback is a valuable tool! Listen to your customers and ask for their recommendations on ways you can improve. Not only will this help you to continue evolving your product, but your customers will also feel important just by the act of you asking them for their opinions!
