In our modern age, there are a huge variety of marketing tools that you can use to market your business. There’s social media, email marketing, Kickstarter campaigns, pay per click advertising, blogging and affiliate marketing and so on.
Yet what works best?
All of these forms of marketing can be very useful, yet there is one form of marketing that cannot be beaten. Referral based marketing.
‘A satisfied customer is the best advertisement.’ That’s a saying that we have all heard, yet many businesses don’t apply it. The reason that this saying holds true is that we will always trust the opinions of our friends and family over an advertisement, no matter how good the advertisement.
What really determines whether or not a business will last is the sort of experience that they are giving to their customers. When we have an excellent experience, we want to share it and tell our friends. When we have a terrible experience, we want to warn our friends about that business.
That’s why referral based marketing is so powerful. It’s based on trust, because we trust the people in our lives more than strangers trying to sell us something.
If you overdeliver, exceed your customer’s expectations, and create an exceptional experience, then those customers will refer you to other potential customers. You don’t even need to spend a cent for them to sell others on your business.
Other forms of marketing are still important, but what will save you a lot of time and money is if you always ensure that your customers have the best experience possible, so they’ll let others know about you. That’s the secret to a good referral based marketing strategy.
