HELP your clients FIND YOU!
I have been meaning to write this blog for over a year now. Please know you may find typos as you read. I have never claimed to be a writer, but a balloon professional with a passion for helping others grow their business! And I don’t want to wait another minute to share this message with you!
If you are in business to make money from balloon decor it is Important that people know:
- You have a business
- Where you are located
- What area you serve
- How to contact you
- Website to see your work and services
- Social Media links to become a fan or follower
With the wonderful world of the internet, no need for the Yellow Pages, a prospective client looking for your services is going to go online and GOOGLE, or search for you online!
I am shocked daily at how many websites and Facebook pages I go to of Balloon Professionals that I cannot figure out the above information!
STOP what you are doing right now…and GO LOOK at all you Online listings. (OK so I might be a little hasty if you are in the midst of setting up an event take care of you client, and then as SOON as you can get on a computer check these things out and FIX what needs to be Fixed!
YOU ARE LOSING BUSINESS RIGHT NOW…if you do not have these vital pieces of information listed.
*** Do Not use a Personal Profile page as a business page..if you do not know what I mean here is a past mini webinar on the topic. With Facebook, you start with a Personal Profile with FRIENDS and from that you create a Business Page with FANS.
Here is more info if you need help with this Part 1, Fans vs Friends
Part 2, Facebook for Business
Make sure this info is listed and clear:
#1 Phone Number Some people do not believe in listing a phone number for clients to contact them, they prefer email. Then you need to state information and have an email address listed and a form Contact Us area is great to gather all the data that you need!
If you do have a business phone number – make it bold so people can see it.
#2 Email Address
#3 Located In City and State, possible country and the Area you serve!
I live in Lakeland, Florida, USA people need to know that I will travel in Central Florida to Tampa and Orlando, I don’t want them to think I’m in a different state that has a Lakeland.
#4 List of services, what do you offer to your clients?
#5 Website linked on your social media
#6 Social media linked from your website
The power of the internet is people being able to find you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! If you do not put this very important information on your website and social media, the people searching for your services in your area will not find you!
