Easy Step to Turn Followers into Customers

This article is for you if you are struggling to convert your social media followers into customers.

Are you ready to start building up your customer base? The number one marketing strategy you need to employ to do this, is newsletters.

Hopefully, you’ve managed to get great interaction with your social media followers, as this will give you fantastic results from a newsletter strategy. And, results are what we want, right? The next step is to give precedence to interacting with consumers away from social media, particularly if you sell goods and services on your site.

One technique companies employ to turn followers into customers, is by offering something for free. You offer consumers free gifts and offers and in return they subscribe to your newsletter. Through your newsletter you can continue to offer them great deals and information on new products.

It’s important that you don’t exclude email newsletters to selling your products but as a method to continue to build relationships as well. Send your subscribers valuable information that solves the challenges they face and your company is expert in solving. This will help build trust.

Consider providing your subscribers exclusive offers, such as  first access to discounts or content not provided on your blog and social media profiles.

If your customers are receiving  and reading your emails, the chances are stronger that they will make a purchase from your company.

Linzi Shoes use their email campaign let their new customers,  who are students, know they’ll get 10% off their orders giving them even more reason to stay interested in the brand. Again they use call to actions to encourage a purchase.

Why  you need an email campaign

An email campaign is so important if you want to turn your social media followers in to customers. It means you can build relationships outside of third party platforms with your own online real estate. By keeping them up to date with news and discounts and showing them how your business solves their problems you increase your chances of building your business. When you rely on social media to build your business you are not building your brand.
