How to Change the Way Customers See Your Business

If you are looking to engage with your customers and grow your business, you need to change how customers perceive your business. You need to help them see that you solve real problems in their lives. Not only that, but you also want to help them see that you are a positive influence on society. Bringing out this change in perspective can take work, but the process is fairly straightforward.

Rebrand Certain Aspects

If there is a promising part of your business that isn’t rising to its full potential, you may want to consider rebranding it. The first step to rebranding is determining who your target audience is. That means figuring out who is most likely to use the product or service and why. You also need to figure out why they may choose to not use it or what may cause them to stop using it. Once you know these things, you can go about crafting a new brand for this segment of your business that speaks to your audience. Redesign your product logos and names. Change up the color palette and fonts. Most importantly, make sure that you align your message with the values of your customers.

Manage Reviews

Every business is going to present itself positively. Because of that, prospective customers rely on past customer reviews to determine if you are a good company to do business with. Half of adults will consult reviews online before they make a purchase. You need to make sure that you have positive reviews.  How do you do that? There are two basic parts to managing reviews. The first part is obtaining positive ones. You do this by sending emails and other messages to customers asking them to fill out a review. The second part is reducing the effect of bad reviews. You can do this by replying to the review of the customer and seeing if you can come to a resolution.

Social Initiatives

In today’s society, there is an expectation that companies should use their influence for good. While politics can both help and hurt a business, there are ways to get involved in your community that are sure to give you some positive PR points. One of these ways is to set up a charitable donation. People like to think that the money they give you goes to a good cause. Some people will choose your company over a cheaper option if they know that you donate to charity. To have the greatest impact on your customers, choose a charity that fits their values.

As you work on improving yourself in your customers’ eyes, you’ll come to realize that the best ways to improve aren’t about painting a brighter picture to your customer. They are about changing how you do business to better serve your customer. A rebrand isn’t about making things shiny and alluring, it’s about communicating more clearly with your customers. Review management isn’t about sweeping bad incidents under the rug, it’s about showing your customers that you care. Social initiatives are about putting your company values into practice.
