How To Generate Word of Mouth Traffic and Create Super Fans of Your Business
The Internet is amazing. Unlike any other time, it makes it easy, not only to reach new customers from all round the world, but also to be able to communicate with them directly. It opens up so many opport
unities that simply weren’t possible before.
Internet marketing has created a level playing field. It helps you to build a rapport with these new customers, so much so that they will become a loyal customer and be a big fan of your business and company without the need to spend a fortune on advertising.
By engaging with them by building trust and passion for your brand and business your aim is encourage them to tell absolutely everyone who is even remotely interested in your niche to visit your website, follow you on social media, and invest in your products. This happens via word-of-mouth marketing.
You can’t force word-of-mouth marketing, but as we’ve just mentioned, you certainly can encourage it.
The first step in doing this is forming great relationships and getting people really excited about the things you’re doing.
People are a lot more likely to check you out if they heard about you from a friend or trusted advisor. You can have all the ads, articles, and other content out on the web you want… but the unfiltered words of other people who really love your product or services will always be more effective than all of those things combined.
Internet marketers often concentrate on trying to drive search engine traffic to websites, which is very important. However, when you focus on relationships and really helping people, word-of-mouth marketing will provide you with many targeted visitors who are eager to buy from you. By concentrating on building relationships, you’ll have already proven yourself as an expert and as someone who delivers on your promises.
In addition to forming relationships so people naturally talk about you everywhere on the web, you can also actively encourage word-of-mouth marketing.
How To Encourage Word of Mouth Marketing
It can be as simple as asking people to pass your free book around or share one of your before and after photos. You can ask them to share your newsletter content or Facebook post with a friend. In marketing, we learn that we have to give people a call to action – it’s part of human psychology. Sometimes, all you have to do is ask.
Another part of word-of-mouth marketing is differentiating yourself from other people in your niche. There are no doubt other great businesses just like yours, who are also trying to drive traffic to their properties. Because of this, you have to stand out from the crowd.
Be creative and try new things. This will get people talking about you and will help spur your word-of-mouth marketing. You will naturally start to get links and have people searching for you on social media and in the search engines.
Word-of-mouth marketing is perfect because it’s something that’s pretty hands-off for you, as long as you’re actively building relationships, creating content, and doing things people want to talk about and share.
Share facts and tips people aren’t hearing everywhere else. Develop products people really need but haven’t yet been served by in the marketplace. Focus on the potential for word-of-mouth marketing with everything you do for traffic.
Creating Loyal Raving Fans
Getting people to talk about you to others is great. What’s even better is having a slew of brand evangelists who are incredibly loyal to your brand and products.
