So, you have a great business and a good audience, but you’re looking for more. Success can make us see that there is more to achieve, and it’s one of the beauties of being your own boss – you can see where you can expand your business and you go for it as a result. It’s a gift to be able to see that your business is currently so successful that you can take it further. Some companies fail in their early stages because they have failed in their attempt to reach their target audience. These early stages are some of the most important for a business, but if you’re at the stage in which you want to increase your reach, you need to follow the tips that we have for you below.
- Go Digital. Along with where to offer your business around the world, you need to be able to showcase your skills and talents as a business. The best way to do this is to go digital with your offerings. When you go digital with your website, you can also go digital with your online shop and you can start to set up your overseas branch as a result. This can include the easy ability to transfer money to China, where your new business operation will be running from. Everything can be done easily when you go digital with your website, and with a worldwide audience at your disposal, you can reach out to new audiences.
- Invest in Promotion. So you want to go global – that’s great! Let’s not forget to market your new changes. If you are headed to China with your business, tell the current audience your plans. They’ll share your news on their social media sites and they can recommend your business to known contacts in the area. You can organically promote your business, or you can do it with paid ads and promote your business that way. You need to have a website and social media site dedicated to your business, but make sure that you add a translation page for your new overseas clients to see, too!
- Add CTA’s. Interactive calls to action (CTA) on your website is going to help any interested parties to get involved in your business and interact properly with you. Making it clear how people can contact you will change the way that you do business, and if you know how you can market to lure your audience in, you’re going to be popular before you even arrive. Use CTAs for email marketing sign-ups and for social media buttons – you’ll see them coming!
- Add Testimonials. As an established business on your home base, you don’t need to keep telling people why they should trust you – they already know. Your new location? They have no idea what you can do. Ask your clients to leave testimonials on your site so that new customers can trust what you’re offering.
Expanding your business needn’t be difficult, so take the time to do it right and you’ll see how quickly your business grows.
