Here are a few ways you can keep your business in front of your customers:

  • a newsletter that includes useful tips, information and coupons
  • a text message list that is used to deliver coupons
  • greeting cards that are sent out on birthdays, major holidays or any other occasion that is important to your customer that you can use to put your business name back in front of them while wishing them well on their special occasion
  • run a contest
  • run daily or weekly specials that are only for people that are on your list
  • do Google Hangouts on a regular basis to give your customers a chance to ask questions live
  • make YouTube videos that show how to use your product or service for maximum effectiveness
