1.) Offer Something New. In a field with numerous competitors, customers will be looking for how you’re different from them. Research what the competition offers and see how you can stand out from their service.
2.) Respond. Communication is the best connection you can have to your customers. When they comment on your blog, take part in a surveys, or give you positive feedback, give them a response! It shows you value them and are willing to take time from your busy schedule to acknowledge them.
3.) Create Compelling Content. Sometimes advertising is as easy as writing a blog post. If your blog has exciting yet informative content, it will intrigue readers. Photography as well as video marketing really catches attention these days, so make sure to add plenty of symbolic and meaningful pieces to your blog as well.
