5 Ways to Beat Your Competition

1. Define Yourself: Treating your business like it’s one of a kind is the key to defining your brand. You want your brand to stand out from the crowd so that potential clients will know what you bring to the table. Definition can also bring to the light what you want your future clientele to remember you by; how you wish to be remembered.

2. Advantage: What brings the clientele back to you each time? Is your price lower than the competitors so that the prospective client won’t need to look anywhere else? Or is your service so top notch that the client never wants to leave? Figure out what will be your hook that keeps them coming back for more.

3. “To” & “With”: Better known as a customer database, this helps with being more involved with your customers and being able to know their needs and wants first hand. The “to” is known as the advertising component and the “with” is known as the market research component of this useful formula. You need to reach out to potential customers but you also need to know how they think and how they feel about things as well.

4. Exciting Promo: Everyone loves a good promo! Innovation is key when it comes to business, whether you are just getting started or you have been the game for years. Customers love when business move forward and excite them with change. It gets them hyped up and talking about you. Promotions are a highly innovative way to grow customer excitement and Five Tier could be a place to look if you need help getting started.

5. Forever Customer’s: Business are always trying to gain new customers every hour of every minute of every second of every day, but sometimes they tend to lose sight of the customers that they already have leaving that customer to feel neglected. Customers are hard things to get, but they can be even harder to keep if they are not treated well. You want to make customers that you will have for a long time and not for a little while. Building a long term relationship could lead to a profitable relationship for you.

5 Ways to Improve Your Social Media Presence

1. Know Your Goals: Before you start posting anything for your company on social media, you need to be aware of what you aiming for. What type of tone do you want to have? What kind of people do you want to attract? Make sure that you are aware of how each social media platform operates, so that you start off strong.

2. Virtual Interaction: Nowadays on social media, there are so many online accounts that are computer generated and aren’t a real person. These sorts of things can lead to potential followers feeling skeptical about your account. How do you fix it? Maintain your social media often and interact with your audience. Show them who you are and what you do, so that they will feel more comfortable allowing you into their virtual space.

3. Public Sharing: Simply make your account public and share with the world. Share your other social media accounts and intertwine them. The more social media interaction you have the better your chances are that others will share your content with their followers.

4. Hashtags: Even full blown companies are not above using hashtags to get their posts across to their followers. Utilizing hashtags can actually help get your content out there to people you would have never thought of. Use them well and appropriately though, the overuse of hashtags can make you less popular.

5. Reasoning: Give your potential followers a reason to follow you. Post about your company, what you do there, the benefits employees get working there, anything to generate a buzz and make people want to come back to your page often.

5 Ways to Improve Your Business

1. Reevaluate: Improving your business is all about figuring out what works best for your company and what doesn’t. Reevaluating your strategies is a good step in the right direction. Look into the details of your business and decide what needs fixing and what needs to be taken out altogether.

2. “Wow” Factor: Every company needs a way to gain business and earn new clientele. Sit down with your entire team and consider your options and the customers your business is geared towards. Find things that will keep your customers’ attention and have them talking about your business. You always want to find ways to go above and beyond when it comes to your clientele’s expectations.

3. SEO (Search Engine Optimization): When searched on the internet, companies want their link to be the first one that people see. A common way to achieve this goal is to hire someone to do it for you, like Five Tier. There are also websites out there that can help you optimize your company on your own.

4. Delegate: As your company develops over time, so will the responsibilities and duties around the office. Learning to delegate could offer up better efficiency within the company and benefit everyone involved.

5. Automate: Manually trying to do everything within your business just doesn’t cut it anymore. It will pay off in the long run if you convert the processes that you do manually into automatic operations.
