4 Primary Business Growth Challenges And How We Overcome Them
1. Most Businesses Rely Too Heavily Upon Paid Advertising
Most business owners feel the only way to consistently grow their business is through paid advertising and managed SEO.
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
New customer acquisition comes at great expense to your business. It requires a lot of testing to get results and constant adjustment to maintain them. It’s not getting any easier and CPA costs continue to rise.
On the other hand . . .
Each of your existing customers is essentially their own platform, each with their own network. Customers as a Platform™(CaaP) is an entirely new way to generate business and more profitable business at that.
In the past, it was very difficult to tap into your customers’ personal networks. But not anymore.
So, why do most businesses still rely so heavily on paid advertising?
The vast majority of business owners gain experience working in an established business before venturing into business on their own. When venturing out on their own, they tend to replicate what they’ve learned in the previous business.
As a result, many businesses simply do what others have done before them. Advertise!
2. Most Businesses Don’t See Customer Communication As A Revenue Driver
If you’re like most businesses, you’re overlooking the value of your customers’ emails and phone numbers.
Most business only use email and SMS for appointments, order receipts and confirmations. Far fewer provide a monthly email newsletter.
That’s just scratching the surface.
You should be communicating with your customer on a personal level on a regular basis. Not doing so is costing your business every month.
Frequent and Consistent Customer Communication Drives More Revenue.
You need to be communicating with your customers on a regular basis. There’s no better communication channel than email. Email marketing produces a higher return on investment than any other form of marketing, producing $36 for every $1 spent (according to Litmus.)
Your communication needs to be aligned with content your existing customers, clients, patients and members can digest on social media. Why social media? Because social platforms are built for sharing. And unlike writing blog posts, social media content is best delivered in short snippets which make them easier to produce.
The emails and occasional SMS text messages you send should reference one or a group of these posts and encourage your existing customers to share them. You’ll want to highlight a piece of content that links to an opt in form or order page that delivers a coupon.
In other emails, you’ll encourage referrals, make special offers and recommendations.
3. They Don’t Correlate Online Reviews To Revenue
They don’t have a system to generate online reviews consistently and lose business as a result.
Beyond the direct impact your existing customers have upon your revenue, one of the ways they contribute to it indirectly is the influence they have over other customers. Traditionally, that meant personal introductions to your business. Today, their influence is much greater.
People look to online reviews. They tend to trust them as much as those personal referrals.
Online reviews carry a lot of weight. People act upon them.
That’s why you need a constant flow of online reviews coming in. 85% of consumers think that local reviews older than 3 months are no longer relevant (according to Search Engine Journal).
The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation includes done-for-you review generation. We implement outreach campaigns that ask your existing customers for reviews. We send them Google’s “magic link” and ask them to leave an honest review. These requests become an integral part of our Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation communication.
Does it matter?
One of our self storage businesses was able to raise their Google My Business review star rating from 3.8 stars to 4.7 stars within 120 days. That was a result of becoming more responsive to reviews, posting more frequently to their GMB page and establishing a process for requesting reviews as part of their new customer onboarding. This resulted in moving from the bottom of the Google 3 pack to the top of it. And that helped lower their ad cost, which ultimately helped them generate more customers.
4. They Don’t Generate Revenue From Social Media And Content Marketing
Social media isn’t as difficult as it may seem. To maximize your efforts, you need to post content consistently. You’ll want to post at least once in the morning and again in the afternoon. That provides an opportunity for customers on different schedules to see your posts and engage with them.
Here’s the formula that’s helped other businesses reduce their dependency upon paid advertising to generate business. . .
When you consistently post a mix of social content (following the INFOFAQ™ formula) to Facebook, Instagram and to your Google Business Profile, you’re sending signals to each of the social networks that your accounts are active and that helps boost your site’s organic search result as well.
There are hundreds of thousands of local influencers around the world, each with a significant following in their local town or city. Some have tens of thousands of engaged followers, but the vast majority have hundreds or a few thousand.
They’re easy to find.
Creating and posting content about your salon, your involvement in the community and providing helpful suggestions and advice can lead to new influencer generated customers.
One business owner we’ve worked with was able to establish a new line of products and services that became so successful over a 12 month period that the owner was able to sell his business for 7 figures. As a result, he was able devote his full attention to the product and service business and replace his income without a single patient visit.
That may not be your goal, in this practitioner’s case he was offered an opportunity to partner with another practitioner to expand their locations. But he decided to cash out and pursue his product and service business.
How The Customer Revivification Method Can Help Your Business
The Customer Revivification Method accomplishes 9 things:
1. Reactivate Dormant Customer Relationships
Reactivating dormant customers is like finding hidden profits in your business.
For some portion of these customers, this represents business that you would have likely generated had you simply been in touch. You’ve already won over these customers, you just need to reconnect with them and “remind them to come back”.
For others, they’ll need a bit more incentive and/or urgency to come back.
We implement a proven email (and optional SMS) campaign that reawakens your dormant customer relationships and gets them doing business with you again. Many will thank you for reaching out and reconnecting with them.
As part of our Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation we implement a 3 step reactivation process:
Step 1: “Miss You”
This introductory email simply points out that you haven’t seen the customer in a while and that you miss them. The email provides a reason why they need to come back. It’s important that your reason be important to them, not to your business. A missed event or a missed special offer are great reasons for them to come back.
This email won’t include an offer.
Make it easy for them to reengage with you with a simple call-to-action
Step 2: “I Thought Of You”
This second email references the first. You’ll send this about 5 days later.
This email makes an offer.
You’ll explain that you have an offer and point out that they might like to take advantage of it.
Make it easy for them to reengage with you with a simple call-to-action.
Step 3: “Moving You To Inactive Status”
This third email, sent about a week after the second, references your previous attempts at reaching them. You’ll tell them that because you haven’t heard back, you’ll be moving them to “inactive” status.
You provide an opportunity for them to correct the mistake by reaching back out to you.
You don’t want to explain the status update in the email, but it typically means they’ll need to spend some additional time bringing your records or their file up to date should they come back in the future (reengaging with you saves them from this hassle).
2. Bring Back Existing Customers More Frequently
An important part of the Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation is communicating a mix of information, education, insight, inspiration, and entertainment consistently throughout each week and over the course of each month. This helps engage customers, keep your business “top of mind” and helps bring existing customers back more frequently.
There’s a direct correlation between the frequency and consistency of your communication and the frequency of repeat customer visits.
Even businesses with full schedules can benefit from consistent, frequent customer communication. Communication creates opportunity. It can lead to new services. It could provide an opportunity to discover inefficiencies and problems.
3. More Business From Existing Customers
Customer Only Offers
To entice existing customers to come back, you’ll need to make “exclusive offers” that are only available to existing customers. These offers can provide quick cash infusions, particularly when combined with customer segmentation. This one-two punch really targets your offers to only those customers that truly want or need them. You’ll often find that this produces higher margins and increases customer long term value.
Customer History Segmentation
The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation segments customers based upon their responsiveness and billing history. This provides the intelligence necessary to present them with service offerings tailored to their wants, need and preferences. We gather this intelligence, analyze it and report it to you transparently, inside your dashboard. Together, our team works with yours to create fresh offers that, based upon their prior history, are more likely to resonate with them and lead them booking an appointment or purchasing a product.
You can’t do this with one-time customers, which is why their Customer Long Term Value (LTV) is so low.
4. Customer Communication - Nurturing The Relationship
Now you need to reach out.
That’s where our Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation comes in. The behind-the-scenes communication nurtures your customer relationships.
This provides a channel, you control, to deliver offers and incentives to them, throughout each week and each month.
It creates opportunities to bring them into your business again.
Because the Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation communication utilizes “intelligent automation”, we’re able to segment these customers by applying “tags” based upon their actions.
5. Increase Referrals
One of the elements of Customer LTV (Lifetime Value) is the number of customers your existing customers refer over the course of your relationship.
Some of your customers will naturally refer their family and friends, but most won’t on their own. Customers referred from existing customers often become the very best customers themselves. Why leave this process to chance? That’s why you need a customer referral system.
Do you have one?
Most businesses don’t.
Happy customers can easily be incentivized to tell their family, friends and peers about your business. Some will do so without any encouragement, but that’s not something you can count on.
A restaurant for example, can offer VIP tables that include premium seating and off-menu items for customers that bring their friends. You could offer special invitations for your customers to present to their friends and reward them with special gifts like a bottle of wine.
Practitioners and professionals can offer free consultations and special invitations to services created for “special patients and clients” only. Free introductory services are also great incentives for existing patients and clients to refer people in their circles.
Frequent communication with the customers on your SMS and email list should include suggestions and incentives for them to refer business and introduce people in their circles to you.
Local Influencer Referrals
Social platforms have become channels for local influencers. Many of them have hundreds or thousands of followers. These local celebrities can recommend your business to people in your town. They have the power to get your calendar booked or products sold in a matter of days, hours and sometimes, minutes. Very few salons are tapping into this opportunity.
You can send special invitations for “existing customers” only. Free introductory services are also great incentives for existing customers to refer people in their circles.
There’s a big difference between referrals and online reviews. Asking for and incentivizing referrals can become a very profitable component of your business. But, be careful incentivizing reviews. That can get you in trouble.
Let’s look at reviews next.
6. Increase and Improve Your Online Reviews
The recency and frequency of online reviews plays an important role in local business organic ranking. Google places a lot of weight on reviews when deciding which businesses to place at the top of organic and Google Business Profile rankings.
People look at and trust online reviews almost as much as personal recommendations.
People have been conditioned to look at online reviews as part of their decision making process, particularly for local brick and mortar businesses. Businesses with higher star ratings get far more calls and direction requests than businesses with lower star ratings. They get more customers as result.
The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation incorporates a review generation process into the customer communication flow.
The Importance of Review Generation
Generating reviews on a regular basis has become an important marketing component. The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation includes review requests as part of your managed customer communication and as a result, we can track the effectiveness of these efforts and impact upon your star rating.
7. Increasing Customer Long Term Value (LTV)
The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation helps increase the average number of orders, visits or sales per customer, the number of people they refer and the average amount they spend. The greater your net margin, the more valuable your business becomes.
8. Reducing Dependency Upon Paid Advertising
Advertising is becoming increasingly more expensive. Relying on it to acquire a new customer makes it difficult to increase your net margin. According to American Express, it’s 6 to 7 times more expensive to acquire a new customer than it is to keep an existing one.
The Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation helps offset these costs by increasing the contribution each customer makes to your business by coming in more frequently, referring others and by spending more when they come in.
9. Adding or Expanding eCommerce
Many businesses have been forced to move online since Covid-19.
The challenge for many businesses is not only managing this new channel, but communicating with customers and prospects.
Ongoing communication requires automation. Without it, it’s very difficult to manage an eCommerce component of your business.
Launching a new service or targeting a new demographic, online or offline, is much easier to do when you have a database of customers you’re communicating with. You get to introduce your products and services to them directly. This provides an opportunity to test the waters and reduce your risks.
If you don’t yet sell online, don’t worry the Customer Revivification Method for customer reactivation makes it very easy to add eCommerce to your business).
