Hello, my friends & business associates. So this year, I’m doing something a little different for the end of the year. I’m doing a Holiday Story Promo for all my fans on the internet. And no, I’ve never done this before, so it will be interesting to see how it works.
Here’s how the Holiday Story Promo will work:
Write your favorite holiday story on a word document or in an email. Send it to me Here. This is my email address. The deadline for the Holiday Story Promo submission is January 25th, 2023. After I’ve read all the stories, I will select one (1) winner. The winner will receive a $50.00 gift card to Amazon.
Holiday Story Promo Submission Rules:
The deadline for submission is January 25th, 2023, no later than midnight pacific time.
It must be emailed to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
The story must be at least 3000 – 5000 words long.
The winner will be announced by February 1st, 2023, by email.
In your submission, you must include your correct email address so that your gift card can be emailed to you if you’re the winner.
That’s it! I hope you are the lucky person picked for the winning submission for the Holiday Story Promo. Remember…it’s all up to you to make it the best story! I can’t wait to read them; oh, and one more thing. The winner will also receive the Amazon Gift Card, and the story will be shared here on my blog for everyone to read.
That is going to be amazing!! I’m so excited to read all the beautiful stories you write, my friends. So get your stories written and submitted by the deadline. It’s January 25th, 2023.
Learning to listen to your customers is essential to go above and beyond with your customer service. When you know how to listen, you’ll begin to hear about what they want and need from your brand. Getting your customers to talk isn’t as hard as you think.
You can use the ideas below for inspiration.
You want to send out a survey to your customers at least once a year. This allows you to track your industry’s growth, predict trends before they become hot, and see gaps in your niche that no one else is filling.
Be aware of the timing when you send out a survey. A survey sent in the middle of the holiday season isn’t likely to receive much attention, and you may only get a handful of subscribers to participate. But a survey sent out in the middle of January when the holidays are over will get a much better response rate.
Keep a form on your website open constantly just for suggestions. Your customers might suggest content ideas, feedback on a current product, or questions about your services. When customers take the time to fill out your suggestion box, it means they care a lot about your business. So let them know you value their thoughts and periodically remind them that you have a suggestion box if they’d like to share their ideas.
Set up a form on your website with questions to help you write a case study. Start by asking for some basic information from your customers. Ask for their names, ages, marital status, and location. Details like these help set the stage for writing your case study later.
Then go deeper by asking customers to describe their life before trying your product or service. What was their business, marriage, or life like before your brand? Were they happy? What was bugging them?
Ask your customers how their lives have changed since they implemented your product. Did they get out of debt thanks to your financial success product? Did they finally have enough for that dream vacation they always wanted, thanks to your work-at-home product?
Don’t forget to ask for a picture of your customer. Your case study will interest more people if you include your customer’s vision.
Case studies tend to be longer and more in-depth than testimonials. Both are good ways to generate interest in your product or service. But due to the transient nature of testimonials, it’s easier to gather these from customers than case studies. Customer service and your clients can provide you with referrals that will exponentially expand your business.
Make a testimonial form on your website. Ask open-ended questions that encourage more than simple ‘yes or no answers. For example, ask customers about their biggest fear before buying your product. Ask them why they chose you over a competitor or what other products they’ve tried previously.
Make It Beautiful
When a customer gives you a testimonial or provides a case study, turn it into a beautiful image. At the bottom of your image, include your website address. Then share the image on your blog, in your social media circles, and with your mailing list.
Your customer will be so proud to be featured that they’ll share it, too. This exposes your brand to even more potential customers and can help you grow your business in new ways.
Customers are eager to share their opinions when you give them the opportunity. Feedback forms like surveys and case studies show your customers that you care about what they want.
No Excuses! It’s time to take your customer service above and beyond. Do that now by downloading your free workbook.
