How Can I Get Customers For My Online Business?

How to attract customers for your online business is straight forward. In fact, it's simply a matter of timing.

Timing

(1) You’ve got to be ready to help customers.

(2) You’ve got to take action that attracts people you can help.

Equally important!

So you can help people transform their lives. Change is difficult. Transformation requires encouragement and new habits.

Your helpful attention and encouragement changes lives.

Go beyond problems! Change lives.

Systems

Help people put systems in place for solutions. That's what it takes to get transformation that sticks.

Yes you can and will include products! But your process has got to include imparting you yourself.

Habit

Stuff sticks when it becomes a habit. For example, my exercise only became a habit because I use walking to get to Mass each day.

Online habit

Be active online. Choose places to hang out where you enjoy being.

It's not about getting customers directly. It’s just a reality that people actively searching for a solution are going to find you exist because of you hanging out.

Social proof

It’s more a social credibility thing. Before you're ready to help people you need social proof that you’re a person people connect with and get value from.

People who feel you’re a fit for them will seek more contact.

Content of value

One way to get customers for your online business is to place valuable content so people find you. Search engines and organic traffic are part of finding you. You'll also find a focus related to where you hang out.

For example, you may publish guest posts on your blog written by folks you hang out with. Or you may choose to interview people and pull together a variety of excerpts from your interviews.

Sound bites! Readily created using video, audio, written copy from transcripts.

Teaching Lessons

As you get closer to being ready to help customers it makes sense to offer more of value where you hang out. When you're recording some lessons invite guests!

Or not! But record anyway so you're ready to give copies to customers right away. That's because you'll find that some recordings give an exact insight to a step your customer needs to take.

Live events deliver value. Prepare an outline and prepare to teach as part of doing business online!

Contact information

Another part of the answer to how can I get customers for my online business is to gather contact information. That’s what allows you to invite someone specific back when you have a live event that'd get them one step closer to a solution to one of their problems!

Cynthia, I really like how you remind people to create systems, develop habits and being social in order to obtain customers. Once you find what works then developing a system with this approach is crucial. No need to break the system as long as it continues to work. Like any other business system, creating good online habits will take you a LONG WAY. Nice article! Jay
