Staying in Touch With Clients

Ten Easy Ideas



Staying in touch with clients doesn't have to be difficult. I know it can seem complicated with all the messages thrown at us everyday, but focusing on a few things that you enjoy is the key.

Here are ten ideas that can help you to stay in touch and land more work in the process.

1. Publish an ezine. - This is my number one way to stay in touch with clients as well as market your business. This platform allows you to share information in a relaxed way. Plan a regular schedule and make sure it's useful to your readers.

2. Share helpful articles. - You can either send it as an attachment to an email or drop it in the regular mail with a note or a card. Be sure your client knows your sending it because you thought it might be useful to them.

3. Share a success story. - It's a nice idea to show perspective clients how you have helped other clients solve a specific problem.

4. Ask for a testimonial. - This is a good idea after you have heard that they are happy with your work. Be sure to let them know it can be simple to do or it will be put off.

5. Invite them to coffee and buy. - Just having a face to face meeting can remind them of projects coming up so doing something nice, without any expectations will keep you on the top of the list.

6. Join their industry association. - knowing what they are interested in goes a long way in showing them your dedication to their industry and business.

7. Visit their website frequently. - Know what is happening with their company and send congratulation cards or other relevant correspondences.

8. Offer discounts and specials. - Let your clients know when your having some type of special so they don't feel like they "missed it." They will know you are making sure that they are at the top of your list and want to help them.

9. Connect with them on social media. Linked In is a great way to connect with business professionals.

10. Send thank you notes. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Sending a thank you note in the mail tells them that you took time to think of them, write a note and send it.


If you'd like to implement any of these ideas but just don't have the time, I'd love to talk. Please give me a call.

To your success!
