Businesses communicate with their clients in a variety of ways, but some methods are more effective than others. In this blog post, we will discuss 4 different ways that businesses can improve client communication. We will explain why each method is useful and how to use it successfully. Keep in mind that not all of these methods will work for every business, so you should choose the ones that are most appropriate for your company.
1) Social Media
You’ve probably heard that your business needs to be on channels like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok and Instagram (just to name a few). And each one requires several posts per week (or per day in some instances) to align with best practice.
Whilst these channels are a great way to communicate with your clients, you don’t need to spend hours a day creating and posting content. Keep it realistic, if you are new to social media, pick 1 or 2 channels that you think your clients use often and aim to post once per week. You can post updates about your products or services, answer customer questions, and give them a place to provide feedback. It’s important to use social media effectively, though, so make sure you are active on the platforms and respond to messages in a timely manner.
Emails are a great way to communicate with clients, but use this method carefully. Too many emails and your clients will feel bombarded and will start to ignore them. But, if you send out well-written and informative emails, your clients will appreciate the effort. Try sending out a monthly newsletter with updates about your products or services.
3) Direct Mail
Direct mail is often disregarded due to the high cost, but people love receiving parcels, so they are typically well received. If you choose to use this method, make sure you are sending out quality content that your clients will appreciate. Direct mail can be used to send merchandise, product information, or even just a simple thank-you note.
SMS is a great way to communicate with clients because it’s quick, easy, and most people have their phones with them at all times. In Australia, SMS messages have an open rate of 94% and 86% are opened within 30 minutes.
You can use SMS to send reminders, updates, or even promotional offers. Just make sure that you don’t abuse this method of communication and only send messages when necessary.
