Grow Your Business by Getting to Know Your Customers

What matters most to your customers?

If you want to know how to increase your business, just ask your customers. Asking for customer feedback is one of the most important elements of doing business. Developing lasting customer relationships and customer loyalty requires an understanding of their needs and the reasons behind their buying decisions.

Survey your customers and ask them what they expect from you, what features of your product or service they most enjoy, what they think about your customer service, and what you could improve.

Listen to your customers, discover their pain points, and bring innovative solutions to market to address their issues and challenges. Paying attention to what your customers are saying can give you better insights to what matters most to them and gives you multiple ways to engage with them and build stronger relationships.

Move Beyond The One Size Fits All Approach

Now is the time to take your email marketing program to the next level, and move beyond the “one size fits all” model, and strive to customize products and services for individual needs. Segmentation can help.

A company that treats all customers and prospects the same speaks to everybody, and thus nobody. Rather than a “batch-and blast” approach, identify the most likely targets for a product or service.

Instead of viewing customers/prospects as single-minded groups, all with the same wants and needs, consider how wants and needs might differ among them, and how those differences might influence their purchasing patterns and behaviors.

I’ve butted heads with more email marketing tools than I can remember, and a lot of them barely scratched the surface of what Message Studio can do.

B2B Email Marketing: It’s All in the Timing

Scheduling EmailsUse the five buyer decision stages to optimize your message.

We B2B marketing professionals think about our target audience practically every minute (It’s kind of an obsession). We know their revenue, number of employees, titles they hold, their budgets, their hobbies, and most importantly, their decision roles. This is static lead info, and we try to know as much as we can.

But what about dynamic info, that changes over time? For instance, when are people ready to buy?
