Encourage People to Join Your Email List

Ask your customers to sign up for your email newsletter. After a few days, you can send out a sale or promotion. This is great because the more emails you have stored, the easier it will be to reach new customers!

As an added bonus, ask people if they would like to share their contact details on your website as well. This way, when they refer their friends to your company, you can get even more customers.

It’s not that hard to create an email list. In fact, many people will sign up for newsletters and promotions without much coaxing. You could try ads or mention them in your blog for added appeal.

Start a Blog to Attract New Customers 

Most blogs are free to set up. Get yourself a blog domain after picking your blog name. Then, edit your main page with some relevant information about your business or industry. There’s no need to be fancy – if you have something interesting to say, that’s enough!

Most people that visit your blog will be interested in what you have to say. That means they’re potential customers.

If someone is about to buy from you, they can always leave their phone number or email address for you to contact them later.

Create an App

With some spare time and some basic coding experience, you can create an app for your business. In fact, these days you don’t even really need coding experience.

Check out this blog post on Monday.com for more information on no-code app development. An app will allow you to reach customers that wouldn’t normally visit your website or social channels.

Encourage Reviews to Attract New Customers – How Does Amazon Attract New Customers? 

Reviews are gold to e-commerce companies. It’s estimated that Amazon makes around 40% of its sales from repeat customers based on positive reviews alone. That is how Amazon attracts new customers!

Encourage people to leave a review by offering them a reward or discount code for your store. Then, other customers will see these reviews and buy your product or service.

Ask for Referrals

When a customer is happy with your product, ask them to refer you to their friends and family. You can make this easier by giving them free things like a discount code or gift certificate.

Use it as a reward for referring someone. This is a great way to attract new customers through your existing customer base.

And of course, be sure to promote the referral online as well like this example below:

Conduct a Survey or Poll on Social Media

You can write a funny or interesting survey or poll on your Facebook page or other social channel and watch as it spreads like wildfire. You’ll also reach new people who haven’t been following you yet.

Plus, they’ll enjoy your page more because they see fresh content regularly instead of the same old stuff. This survey or poll is a great way to get potential customers to engage with you.

You can then contact them via email, Facebook messenger, or even phone call if they entered that information.

How Do You Attract New Customers?

Did you know that acquiring a new customer can cost five times more than retaining an existing customer?  The success rate of selling to a customer you already have is 60-70%, while the success rate of selling to a new customer is 5-20%.

So don’t get discouraged if it takes a while to attract a new customer.
