How to attract your first customer


How to attract your first customer at your product catalogue? Most of the new businessmen got stacked in compulsions at their first experiences to get a customer for their products. A good customer always wants to see its supplier with good deeds. There’s enough potential need to get your first customer on B2B Portals (AliBaba.com, GlobalSources.com, TradeKey.com and TradeFord.com). It is quite hard to catch your business at reputable position in very short time period. For example, there are two barber shops. One is full of customers and other has only scissors in the drawer. No one will notice you in the market if you not in a state of sacrificing. Here, sacrifice means to spend some money on marketing to get first customers.

You may find most of the ways to attract your first ever customer. You may attract customer by only following such steps: talking, walking, showing and telling. It is quite necessary to follow right method for marketing your product. The method will be cost effective and reliable according to your business.

Again, if you are ready enough to get your first customer so read further! Customers don’t know that you really on the web to sell something. So, you should be a good marketer to show your presence. Firstly, you need to ensure your social presence. You should add your friends and community on social networks and spread the message about your product. It is one of the cheapest formulas to show off you! Secondly, you need to distribute flyers and pamphlets among community. It’s a best way to show your trade presence.

If you are selling something which is expansive to purchase so it is possible that Importers will hesitate to invest in that. Now, you need to polish your products by offering free catalogues of your products. These catalogues would be a CD-ROM or E-Brochures. This trick is not cost effective because you need to pay postal charges and courier expanses but it generates the interest in your customers. This way is very special and often used by big companies.

If you are not from Suppliers so there are more possible chances to introduce your company. You might be a software company and need to sell your software which would perform necessary operations for big companies. Now, you need to design software with full features but stuck it on trial period. Offer that trial version to community. It is obviously a cost effective trick to attract a customer.

“Introductory price” helps most of the companies to make attractive business. It may not a cost effective and it may be a challenge for your product’s original price but remember that sacrifice word I’d mention before!

It must be a part for savvies! Your competitors may help you most in some cases. You are offering such products with extra ordinary qualities that your competitors don’t! So, you should take advantage of it!
