How to get more customers? This is the top one question that my own customers and my network keep asking me. I spoke to so many talented individuals who dedicate their career to their inner calling. They love what they do, they serve the conscious community, their soul is on fire. One thing still gets them worried: getting more customers.
This was also the number 1 challenge that impact-driven entrepreneurs were facing when I did my market research about 18 months ago. Scaling up your spiritual business needs a key ingredient: more customers. As I’m on a mission to help impact-driven souls scale up to another level, I decided to show you a few ways to help you do exactly just that. Why? Because you can keep on making a positive impact in the world which makes me feel more fulfilled on a soul level.
Here 5 actions that you can implement to get more customers
Cross-promote your services and your products.
If you don’t do this, you might actually lose not only revenue but even the customer. If they’re not aware of alternatives or other services of yours, they might not say yes to you and they’ll walk away. Before you start cross-promoting, I’d also recommend checking out this comprehensive guide that covers the core basics on how to market your spiritual business. Everything you need to know about how to get more customers to keep your impact-driven business running in the long term.
Do not ignore your SEO!
I’m sure you heard about this many, many times, but I’m going to throw this in here as well. Because it’s extremely important that you do not ignore your SEO. Yes, SEO, which is your search engine optimization, is a complex process. Yes it needs technical knowledge. You want to be showing up on Google for the terms that your customers are searching for. If you’re not sure where to get started, you can always look for a specialist. But first I would recommend doing some research and start educating yourself on the basics.
Increase your query to customer conversion.
It’s not as difficult as it first sounds. It’s the journey from the moment you start having a conversation with a potential buyer until they become an actual customer. Know the milestones of this journey and make it as smooth as possible for the client. I talk about tracking your conversion rates here in more depth, plus I’ve pulled together a tracking template for you. You’ll find it at the end of the conversion rates article.
Incentivize bringing referrals.
This one seems pretty obvious, yet not many people are doing it. Word of mouth is still one of the biggest, most powerful advertising tools that’s actually out there. Don’t forget about it! The highest quality leads can come to you from your existing customers. They already know how great your services are. So the conversion (as I mentioned earlier) will be a lot easier & faster. Make sure that you incentivize your existing customers to bring referrals to you. Offer them some kind of a reward or perhaps extend their package or throw in a freebie from one of your products. A thank you like this goes a long way when you are trying to get more customers.
Partner with relevant affiliates.
This is one of my favourites & I’m going to cover Affiliate marketing in a separate article soon (it’s a big topic). Start with finding like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses that COMPLEMENT your services. Reach out to them and start building those partnerships. You can cross-promote each other’s businesses in exchange for a referral commission or custom discounts for your partner’s audience. Without a doubt, building affiliate partnerships will not only help you get more customers but also to find your tribe in the business world & unite.
