3 Out-of-the box techniques to Get New Customers.


A business without customers is like a house without habitants. Regardless of how great or special your product or service is, if you don’t have people demanding it, it’s more or less valueless–unless of course you created it as a hobby. When our products or services are demanded, it implies that we are fulfilling people’s needs or wants. It makes our businesses alive, and our minds enthused with purposefulness. It is simple: without customers there is no business.

The question is; what do you do on a daily or weekly basis to recruit new customers? Below are 3 techniques that I’ve successfully used to get new customers.

  1. Volunteering.

Volunteering, especially for causes related to our products or services, is an easy way to get your name out there. For instance: I offer free group counseling sessions to women in public libraries every two months. When the libraries are advertising my events, they create flyers with my name, qualifications and contact details and post them everywhere in the libraries, and on their websites. This doesn’t only build my SEO since my contact information is included on their big websites, but it’s also free advertising for my company.  If you have a LinkedIn account, sign up for volunteermatch.com and start volunteering at these big organizations. Even if they don’t hire your services, if you do your job well, at the very least you will get a good referral.

  1. Blogging:

I’ve discovered that so many businesspeople resent blogging. However, blogging is simple especially if you have a passion for what you do. All you have to do is write weekly on subjects related to your business—such as this one for my business. As a success coach, I offer sales success strategies to especially small business owners. What I’ve done in this blog is offer you some tips that could help you recruit new customers. If you get interested, which I know you will, you will check out my website (www.tapthegood.com) for more resources.  And that’s how it all begins.

*When you blog, remember to connect your blog to all your social platforms.

  1. Host a “Wine and Peanuts” party.

People love free things. People love wine. Men love peanuts. 🙂 Host a party and include a raffle for guests to buy tickets to win complimentary services or products. However, don’t give away too much. If you are a service provider, offer no more than a 30 minutes complimentary session. Also, remember to have a guestbook to record their contact details. Ask them if it’s okay to email them periodical offers and/or free tips. Trust me; they will be okay with that. You’ve wined and fed them, and the law of reciprocity will naturally take effect.

6 Questions to ask Before you Speak on Any Stage.


Being a Professional Speaker requires of us to be organized, captivating, and most importantly, memorable. However, before we achieve the preceding goals, preparation is paramount. If we don’t take care of the small things that one could consider irrelevant, chances are that we won’t achieve our speaker-objectives.

Below are some questions I have asked myself before I go on any stage. And don’t get me wrong; I’ve learned the hard way. I hope you can take advantage of the questions.

  1. Are you clear about who is in the audience and their connection to our organization?

  2. Do you know  how long you have to Speak?

  3. Do you need a signal to wrap up your talk?

  4. Do you have all the equipment and aids you need to deliver your talk?

  5. Have you met the person who will be introducing you?

  6. Will  you be taking questions from the audience?

Three Steps to Ignite Your Inner Drive:


Organization mishap

Often, we are faced with the challenge of tapping into our inner drive to take action. These are times when we feel like working on our goals is wastage of time especially when the results we’ve anticipated for our projects are not yet in sight. However, take note that inner drive is not contingent on our external circumstances. It’s our negative thought associations that corrupt our decision making inner portals.

When I recently researched on what successful people do to ignite their inner drives, the following three steps stood out for me.

1. CLARITY

clarity

When we are clear about what we want, and have the desire to embark on achieving our desires, we automatically tap into our inner drives: because then, nothing presents reasons strong enough to distract our determined minds. The idea is to get very clear about what you want to achieve; the emotional benefits; the people you need to help you, or work with to achieve your goals, and the positive changes that your achievement will introduce to your life.

 2. OPPORTUNITY COST.

Opportunity cost is the loss of the potential gain from other alternatives when one alternative is chosen. In regards to inner drive, this simply means that when we realize that not taking action costs more than the contrary, we tap into our inner drive to move things. In any case, before we take any action, we have to evaluate if taking action will add value to our businesses and/or life.

3. ORGANIZATION

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Being organized simplifies our action-taking process. When we un-clutter our lives, offices and minds in general, and develop simple but organized systems to support our projects, taking action becomes easy. Organization can be as simple as developing daily plans; to-do lists, getting focused, and developing a positive attitude.
