Offering a deal for your local business online can be a powerful tool for drawing in more customers. However, it’s not only useful for finding new customers but also helping you maintain regular ones. If you share a great deal, and the customer’s experience has been positive then the next time they need a similar product or service your company will be in the front of their mind. And if someone has found a really great deal it can help create more business through word of mouth.
There are a huge number of different deals you can offer to your customers. If you are looking for some inspiration on deal types you can offer we’ve put together a handy list for you:
A Free Gift Deal: Offering a free gift with the purchase of one of your other products or services is a great way to give potential customers some extra value. When used right a deal entices customers to bulk up their order and maybe even increase the sales of your other products and services.
Discount Deal: A discount deal is the most popular deal that businesses use, and that’s for one simple reason – they work. A discount deal can offer either a percentage or dollar discount on the regular price of your services or products. These deals allow your customers to see that they are getting a quality at a cheaper price. If your competitors are offering the same services or products and a potential customer see’s yours at a discounted price, they are more likely to get in touch with you. It makes them feel as though they are wasting money if they don’t use you.
Prelaunch Deal: If you're opening a new business, opening an additional store or servicing a new area, then a prelaunch deal can help to build some excitement around the upcoming launch. Getting people to talk about your business before you’ve even started to sell starts you off on the right foot from the very beginning.
Referral Deal: When looking for a product or service people often take the advice of their family and friends. Why not use this to your advantage? Create a deal that encourages your customers to refer you to their friends and family to help increase your sales.
As a business, you are always looking for more customers, but you also want to keep the ones you have. Why not reward customers for using your business? For first time users of your business, a deal could be just the thing they need to convince them to buy your products or services.
At the same time, rewarding those regular customers helps to build a stronger relationship with them while creating stronger standing in your local community. If you can keep repeat business it means a regular revenue stream. Rewarding those loyal customers can only help your business.
