Competition among businesses gets tougher as time goes by. It doesn’t matter if you’re already an establish firm or you’re just starting up. Both are struggling to get to the top and those already on top are also struggling to maintain its standing.
So how can a startup business compete among the large firms to increase its market share?
You have to find your own place
If you want to have your own spot at the market, you have to establish how or why you are different from the rest. Establishing your unique selling point—how you fit in to that particular niche—will attract customers to you.
Establish the specific type of customers you want and work on how you will gain their loyalty
Create a model of your target customer’s demographic. Get to know what she wants, what her needs are, her fears, motivation, hobbies, manner of thinking, etc. Then focus your marketing efforts around those things. Make them see how your product or service will help them and let them see how special they are for you.
Create your marketing plan
Everything has to start with a plan. You need to set your targets and study your plan of attack. Your efforts should have direction, otherwise, you will go nowhere. Marketing your product is an essential part of establishing your business and making your customers feel that you exist. If you don’t have a budget to hire a marketing expert, you can ask your friends and relatives to do it for you.
Make your customers purchase more.
Make it easy for your customers to transact with you. Establish yourself as their most dependable go-to shop. Connect with your customers frequently and make them want to go back to you by reminding them of how your product or service will benefit them.
Increase the value in every purchase of your product or service.
You can offer your customers deals which will not only excite them but will increase the value of they paid for. It could be in a form of buy one, take one, gifts with purchase, raffle or contest, and many more. The point is, there should always be an additional perk for them when they patronize your product or service. So that when they are faced with a decision that they have to choose between you and your competitor, they will have to consider that extra something you have and you win the competition.
