There are many ways to get your business looking fresh and modern. The main reason for doing this is to make it stand out and get it noticed. You will be surprised at how the eye gets used to seeing things that do not change for a long time and how the brain learns to ignore them. By giving your business a new look, whether it is a new logo, a different style of uniform, or a company swag item for your employees, what you are aiming for is to get noticed and get those eyes pulling back to your business.
Make your website totally user friendly
It is important to make sure that your website is totally user-friendly and is accessible to all that may visit it. Not only do you have to make sure that it is easy to navigate, functions well, and has all the correct information held on it, but you will also have to make sure that it abides by the ADA. Websites are available that will provide information on the ADA and give you valuable insight into what is expected of your business and your website; this guide is fully comprehensive and informative.
It is all very well paying out huge sums of money on advertising and SEO, but if your website is not user-friendly when your visitors get there, you are just wasting your money, and they will simply click away.
Another important point to remember is to make full use of social media platforms and be sure to link any postings, articles, promotions, and videos back to your website. This is so that anyone interested in what you have posted can just go straight to your website without having to click away. This is very beneficial, as those who click away from your article, etc., are unlikely to look for your website later on.
Offer your customers promotional swag
Offering your customers and potential customers promotional swag, especially if it is good quality useable items, is a good way to keep your business in your public’s eye and keep it current. There are many different items of swag available, from hats, t-shirts, tote bags, and thumb drives, mouse mats, and water bottles, to name but a few.
Be sure to add your business’s logo on each item and make sure that it is big enough to be seen easily but does not make the item look unwearable.
You may find it beneficial to offer this swag to your employees and encourage them to give you feedback before offering it to your customers.
Train your employees
It is always important to train your employees. This gives your business the advantage of offering your customers the best possible service that you can, as well as keeping your employees up to date with any changes with regards to their job roles.
It can also be beneficial to offer your employees support for out-of-hours training by way of university or college courses for them to gain more knowledge in their chosen fields. By offering them support by way of paying for the courses via your business, you will be getting an employee with superior and up-to-date knowledge but paying a lower wage for that knowledge up until the point of qualification.
Training employees can help your business in other ways too. For example, it can give your business a much higher reputation with your customers, increase your employee morale which, in turn, can boost production and quality rates, aid confidence levels within your workforce, and improve your business’s employee retention rates. You may also be able to ask for more money for your business’s products or services if all your employees are trained to a specific level and enough for them to be known as experts in their job roles.
Give your business a makeover
To make your business eye-catching, you may need to have a bit of a makeover. First, think about how your business logo looks; if you have one, you may find that it would benefit from being revamped to look new and modern rather than old and dated. If you do not have a business logo, then perhaps it is time that you invested enough within your business to get one. Businesses available to you will help you think up and design a logo perfect for your business needs.
When you have achieved a new look in nice new colors, make sure that all your business information, headed paper, automated email header, and footer, along with your website and social media profiles, all marry up and look the same. This way, all your customers and suppliers will see the new business you are promoting.
It is important to get your website moving with the times and make sure that it is totally accessible to all who wish to visit it. Making sure that it is user-friendly does not stop at its loading time, although this is very important but also includes things such as the language used, whether it is easily understandable and whether it can be easily translated into another language if it is desired to be so.
Be sure to link any social media platforms as well as any posts, articles, or videos back to your website so that your potential customer is not lost to you due to them having to actually go looking for your website or products for them to visit your website. You will find that if they have to go looking for your business, then they probably will not bother.
Look to give your business a new look by revamping or obtaining a business logo. Offer your customers, potential customers, as well as employees items of swag with your new look logo on to give a good fresh feel. Also, ensure to update all your paperwork, email software, website, social media profiles, and signage to get the most of your new look and get your business noticed again.
