Your business wouldn’t run without the support from your customers, employees, investors, vendors and outside advisors. As the economy gets rough, many of your valued relationships may be struggling. This may be the perfect time to reach out and see if you can lend a hand.
How can you help the people you value most who support your business? Here are three things you can do:
1. Create exclusive content
Everyone needs something, you just have to find that particular interest. You may be able to create something that people need that can help strengthen your relationship with them. Introducing a valuable and exclusive product or service may show clients you can provide for them. The more special you make your customers feel, the more likely they’ll stick around for a lifetime – and refer others your way.
2. Ask for feedback
Business relationships are a two-way street – you have something people want and in turn, they provide their service. If you don’t reach out to your connections, you may be missing key investment strategies. Your relationships might be stronger after getting feedback on a much-needed feature. Take your feedback and use it to create alternative product offerings and capture untapped market shares.
3. Advertise mutual success
You realize your business wouldn’t be where it is today without your vendor and business relationships, but do they know? You may consider showing just how successful everyone is by working together as a team. When times get tough, the best thing is to stay together. You can also parlay that into cooperative events or partnership advertising that will benefit you all.
