Being Approachable As A Business

Being approachable as a business is extremely important. There are many ways to achieve this goal, and you shouldn't take it lightly. So what can you do to make sure that your business is take seriously and that you seem aproachable and friendly. It's not all about making your office interior snazzy, and it's not about getting some bespoke gating for the outside of the building. It's more about trying to take things to the next level.

 

Online Presence

 

Your online presence and branding is the most important thing to worry about. You don't want to seem like every other business that just silently continue to trade. You want to come across as transparent as possible. This means being active in the online space. You can do this by using social media and also by creating a blog. Blogs are a great way to keep people updated with whats going on in the company. You don't want to make the mistake of leaving your blog and social media accounts inactive for decades.

 

Your social media presence is important too. Making sure that you remain friendly, helpful and social is a great way to put your business into a good light. Everyone loves a company that they can talk to, and if you're actively online and answering questions then good for you.

Bringing Traffic To Your Website

Getting Traffic To Your Website

Having a website is all well and good but actually creating a buzz around it and gaining popularity is it's main purpose. If you're not interested in putting the work in to achieving this goal then there is no point in having a website in the first place! To gain extra success you must market your website to market your business but how do you do this? Well, lets take a look at a few simple steps.

Determine Your Target Audience

 

Determining your target audience is the first thing you should do, if you're a furniture company for instance, have a look into your products and past sales and see what clientele you have been dealing with. From this you can work out the kind of people you are targeting and use that information to reel in more people. Usually this should be done before your website is built, but I suppose you could make minor changes toward the clients you have discovered.

Get Peoples Attention

Your website should be one that really gets people's attention, with the sheer over saturation of websites it is quite important that your website stands out. Having a creative design and bright colours can really do this for you, animation is also something that makes a website stand out.

Information Information Information

As somebody who works for an Exeter website design Business I have in past experience come across clients that just don't have any engaging content. I just don't really see the point of putting up a website without really trying to engage customers. This is one of the most important aspects to draw attention and attract new visitors.

Having A Successful B&B Business

B&Bs and hotels are required all over the country, but people don't have to choose your accommodation if they don't want to. If you've just started your own Bude bed and breakfast then its time to be competetive. There are several things to plan out before you actually start your Bed and Breakfast business. Here are a few tips.

 

Choose A Sparce Location

 

This is key, make sure that your location has little to no accommodation around. This will make sure that if anyone is in that area on business or for any other opportunity, they are going to have to choose you for this one.

 

Quality Of Service

 

Making sure that the accommodation is clean and meets the needs of all visitors and service is up to par. Going beyond the call of duty for service and presentation can really impress customers. This in turn will give good word of mouth.

 

Market Yourself

 

Get yourself onto the internet, you want people to use your facilities when they go away on business, how are they going to know that you are there when you haven't told anybody? Get your site in Tripadvisor, and any other directory you can find. This will help big time. It is also a good idea to get a website built for yourself, this can then be linked to from all of the directories that you put yourself in.

 

So there you have it, a few ways to get your business up and running.
