Want more customers?
What’s your area of sales? Let’s say pet products.
Go on twitter and Pinterest and in search pets, names of breeds etc..
On Pinterest leave friendly comments. Like Pins.
On Twitter search by hashtags & engage in a similar way being brief using a few words. Retweet. Be nice. Be friendly.
What you’ll find is people will follow you. They will respond to your comments by favoriting them etc..
It’s about creating relationship and community.
They’ll see you sell products and if they’re interested they’ll come take a look at your products. Nothing wrong with your mentioning them while you’re also busy liking their posts & retweeting their comments.
Be friendly. Have fun. You will gain far better results than sell sell sell. You’ll also have more fun. Fun is contagious. Hard sell is not.
