How to find new customers for your business
Remember how we talked about offering trial versions of your product or service, that’s the first place to start from when seeking new customers for your business.
Why are they the first port of call? because they have tried your product, they saw the flaws and they asked you to fix it,hopefully you listened and acted on their suggestions hence you are on good terms to ask them to buy from you.
Some of them will become your customers, while some will not be willing to pay for your products, you don’t have to worry about those who won’t pay, they are not your target market.
2-Friends, Familiy and some good Foes-
Hopefully, you have these in your life, some family members will be willing to buy from you, some will not. Don’t push it, you don’t want to quarrel with your whole family, because you will need their support all the way.
A little word here, the greatest of your disappointments will come from this quarter.
Some will support you with their time, energy and even money. Others will be the naysayers that will discourage you all the way. But pay no heed to your naysayers, because they will also change when the results come pouring in.
Here is a wall art I designed for you in times like this. You can get it from my blog shop.
3-Blog about your product:
Nothing has influenced the power of buying in the age we are in right now like the power of blogging. In fact, statistics have it that businesses with a blog will do better than those who do not blog about their products.
You see, people don’t want to be sold to but they want to be educated on how your solution will solve their problems. That is where the power of the written word can act as a persuading agent that will convince your customers to buy from you.

Partner with people who are already in your niche and run promos and giveaways that will benefit you both.
When you run giveaways, you have the opportunity of expanding your brand to new customers. You also give them the opportunity to trust you, since they can see you are partnering with someone they already trust.
7-Facebook Groups, Online forums
Be part of Facebook groups that have to do with your business and offer helpful suggestions, this will help to expose your expertise and also snag you a buyer. The same applies to online forums too.
