Don’t Make these Mistakes with your Customers

For any business, it’s important to know what your customers want and need. It’s what gives you an edge over your competitors. Offering targeted deals is one of the best ways to connect with your customers and show them you have what they need. Sounds easy, right? The concept of targeted marketing is simple, but implementing it is a big challenge for most companies. Avoid these mistakes when offering your customers targeted deals. 

What Are Targeted Deals?

In an era of online retail and easy price comparisons, most customers are looking for big savings when they shop for goods and services. Companies that personalize their offerings can provide additional incentives to their clients. Reaching out to customers requires showing them you have exactly the types of deals they’re looking for. Companies do this to a greater or lesser extent through traditional advertising. The advent of big data means that more information is available at your fingertips than ever before. Businesses now have greater access to the actual purchasing and shopping habits of their target audience. Reaching customers is easier thanks to the multiple ways that companies can communicate; through direct mail, email marketing and social media. However, customers can be turned off by poorly executed messaging.

Take Control with Facebook’s Newest Update

Many people depend on their Facebook news feeds to keep tabs on everything from coupons to current events. It can be irritating for them when they miss important updates. Now Facebook has announced a solution for users who want more control over their news feeds. The See First feature helps you personalize your Facebook page for better results. 

Customized Connection

People use social media platforms to connect with groups as varied as friends, public figures and local businesses. However, for most people, not all of the stories and updates are relevant or meaningful. In the past, the only option for customizing your news feed was by the process of elimination. Users had the choice to unfollow groups whose information they didn’t want to see in their news feed. This all-or-nothing approach left much to be desired. For starters, it didn’t take into account one’s preferences for seeing certain people’s status updates before others’. Thanks to Facebook’s algorithm, this led to missed posts or seeing posts late. Now users have the option of telling Facebook exactly what they want from their social relationships.
