What This Means To You
First impressions are very important and not just your physical ones. Your digital persona is the gateway to your business. Over 80% of customers will do research before making a purchase – a large majority using digital tools to do so. So how your site and your social sites are presented are very important. One other thing to consider is your communications with customers. Loyal customers love to receive information from you. Those who make not have a loyal relationship with you – not so much. Consumer’s definition of SPAM is not the same as the legal definition. Anything unwanted (even if they might have signed up for it) is SPAM to them. They key to staying out of their perception of SPAM is making sure your messages and offers to them are valuable. It’s a good idea to look at who opened your email lists. If consumers haven’t opened a message in a few months, it may be time to cull them from your list. If they are opening them and not acting on them – maybe increase the offer to see if you can spur sales. For more information on growing your business and developing loyal customers,
