Courier driver jobs are readily available and ready for the taking but you need to follow some really basic principles in order to find them and obtain repeat custom. Repeat custom is the “lifeblood” of any business as this is how you build up your customer base and increase your profits. In this article I am going to include some simple tips for all of you who are new to the courier driving business or just starting out.
Give these four methods of growing your courier work business a go and see what results you get.
1) Find more customers
2). These customers need to use your business more than just once
3). They need to hire you for the profitable jobs
4). They need to hire you for regular, contracted work.
These tips are very, very simple but if you follow these steps they will help focus your efforts. So each time you find a new customer make sure you can implement step two to four.
You need to get more customers in order that you can build up your client base but if you fail to turn these new customers into “regular” customers then you will always be stuck on the starting blocks. There are only so many customers you will attract and if you do not convert a high enough percentage into “regulars” then your business will fail…
Marketing and how it can help you obtain more 租旅遊巴 customers.
Research everything – do not get lazy and think oh well I can miss this bit out. You might as well build a house with no foundations if you do this and you will be in for one BIG shock.
Draw up a proper marketing plan, not some iffy list that you stuff in your back pocket…. If you have no idea how to do this grab some information of the internet – take your time and get it right.
Try and grab hold of customers who you might not otherwise have been able to reach – by this I mean change something, does not have to be huge, in order to get a certain section of the market. Do this by looking at certain areas of your business that you might not have been marketing as well as others. Is there a part of your business that has a great niche potential that you have not targeted?
You must implement solution marketing and make sure any advertising or material is linked into this.
The Importance of a Target Market in Small Business
Please try not to imagine yourself (well not in the beginning anyway) as the next world brand who is going to have so so many customers. This will not happen and trying to get loads of customers and prospects from all over the place is a complete waste of time.
The deal here is that only so many people actually need your services so it doesn’t matter how fantastic you think you are – this is the truth. Your marketing efforts need to be aimed at the correct niche and where your profit will come from. If not you might as well go and sit in the park!!
OK so we have ascertained that you are a small business and do not have a huge marketing budget to blow!
Well look on the bright side this is actually a bonus when you are first starting out because it makes you actually get off your butt and get creative – because you have to. Also when you don’t have huge resources and have to do the majority of the work yourself you learn so much and avoid costly mistakes.
