1. Set goals for attracting new customers.

Write down short-term and long-term goals for attracting new customers.

Start by working towards short-term goals, which can lead to achieving your long-term goals.

Set SMART goals:Specific: How many new customers do you want to acquire? Using which channels (social media, referrals, Google searches, offline etc.)?

Measurable: Establish the metrics you’ll use to determine whether you’ve accomplished your goals

Attainable: Analyze each goal and determine its feasibility

Relevant: Determine which goals are the priorities for your business
Time-bound: Set a time frame to meet every goal.

2. Know your customers

You cannot succeed in the market if you don’t know your customers. Before moving ahead with any plan, it’s helpful to develop a buyer persona. Buyer personas are simply a profile of your company’s ideal customer. While it’s important not to create too many buyer personas, having one or two buyer personas in mind can improve the way your business targets its market and attracts leads.

3. Determine your best channels to attract new customers

It’s best for businesses to meet potential customers on the channels they frequent most. Are they on social media? Would they prefer email? Meeting in person?

You can determine how your customers prefer to be contacted by gathering data from your existing customers. However, don’t put all your eggs in one basket – customers joining several new platforms every day, and a multi-channel marketing strategy is always best for attracting new customers.

4. Understand the buying process

Figure out how your customers are reaching you to purchase your product. Once you know these inbound channels, you will be able to pinpoint where to focus your efforts (as well as which channels might need some work). Here are some questions to help determine your customer’s buying process:

How are customers arriving at your website? Is it via social media, organic SEO, or other methods?What page do they first land on?What do they do once they land on a page?What content or pages do they go through before making a purchase?

5. Leverage social media

By focusing on building relationships through social media, you can better magnify your marketing plans and gain a loyal following.

Here are some guidelines to attract new customers through social media:

Identify which social media sites your existing and desired customers are using.

Create company profiles on those sites
Post engaging content related to your business and industry
Focus on other interesting or trending topics, as well Use relevant keywords and hashtags relevant to your company

Listen and respond to feedback.

6. Offer something for free, or at a discounted rate

People love getting something for free, or at least less than the asking price. Consider implementing an introductory offer to draw in new customers.

7. Form partnerships

Consider forming partnerships with other businesses in your niche or that have the same audience as yours (although aren’t in direct competition). This allows you to build a larger network of potential customers, and refer leads and prospects to each other.

8. Start a referral program

Your existing customers are your best advocates. They already know the benefits of your business and if they’re happy with what you have to offer, they’re probably already sharing you with their friends. So why not use your existing customers to attract new customers using customer referral marketing?

Existing customers get a reward for every successful referral, while new customers are also incentivized to make their first purchase. 

9. Formulate a quarterly strategy

Once you have all the resources in place, it’s time for you to create a  researched quarterly strategy focused on how to attract new customers. Three months will give you enough time to progress and track results, but not overwhelm you to achieve those results in very short periods. Frame every step in your plan in a way that supports the goals you wrote down in step one.

10. Stick to your plan, and learn from the results

What if you seem to be behind on your quarterly plan? If things seem like they aren’t going your way, still stay positive and stick to your plan throughout the quarter. Keep in mind that uncertainties are bound to happen, and don’t be discouraged by the lack of results. Don’t let a small hindrance keep you from going forward with your plan, because getting results from a detailed strategy often takes time.  After the quarter is over, you can always evaluate your results and chart a new and informed path forward, based on the data you collected.

Bonus Tip:

Use direct response marketing

Direct response marketing gets potential customers to complete specific, quick actions on the spot. Use direct response marketing to get potential customers to opt into your email list or give other contact information through a lead capture form. This allows you to reach them through methods and nurture them towards making a purchase.

Conclusion

Thankfully, there are many ways to attract new customers and keep them coming back. Start by targeting the right prospects, offering them something informative and engaging, and applying some of the many tips offered.
