An Open Letter To Business Owners,
You’ve started your own business. Woo hoo! It’s been a long time coming. Lots of planning, saving, financing, and maybe even tons of stress.
But now, you’ve started advertising and you’re making your way into the marketplace to reach potential customers. Voila! New clients are starting to come in. Before you dive in too deep, have you automated any processes?
Do you know what can be automated? Let’s take a look together and break it all down by customer cycles.
There are tasks within the marketing cycle that can be automated or at the very least, semi-automated. Doing so will leave you with more time for lead engagement. Of course, lead engagement is crucial because that involves the sale, which means you’re earning more and growing your business.
So now that you’ve engaged that lead, we hone in on the sales cycle. It involves the opt-in or purchase process, thus developing some automation here will give you back more time for new customer onboarding and engagement. You don’t want to get new clients just to inadvertently disappoint them from the start.
Okay. You’ve got clients to onboard. Streamlining the new client process could be incredibly beneficial to the growth of your business. Now you’ll have more time for… Can you guess what? Relationship building!
This takes you to the customer service side of things. Which, if you’re not careful, could become detrimental to your time because here is where you really need to start thinking about circling back around to getting new clients, instead of managing the ones you have now.
