What are the best ways to get people remember you and your company?
Making an impression plays an important role not only to entrepreneurs but also to ordinary people. If you want to be remembered, you must be sure that it is for the better, so it won’t affect you and your business in any way.
Can you give some suggestions on how to get people to remember you, as well as your company?
Give every client important ,get his e mail add ,if possible ask date of birth not year than send them birth day card and also send card on every occasion ,email them and tell them how important they are for there business
The reason my clients always enjoy working with me is because I have excellent communication and I always follow through with what I say or promise.
It sounds so simple but so many companies have lost that personal touch. Follow through on your promises and treat people right and they will never forget you for it.
Maya Angelou said, “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” While it's important to showcase your abilities to demonstrate your skill as a professional, I've found one of the most impactful ways folks remember you is how you make them feel. The sense they get from you will stick with them, long after the lingo and jargon of your meeting or presentation have faded. So be genuine and knowledgeable and helpful, and they'll remember you for that. It speaks volumes!
In my own experience, the best way people remember me as well as my company is that I am doing an animated video for my business and have it stream on my business website. In that way, people will able to remember what I do and what industry I was in. =) Also having a great commitment to my customers and helping them succeed to their business.
IMO if you want people to remember your company you have to do things differently. Even if that means treating each customer as an individual and showing them that you actually care what they think and provide a service that they are not used to from run of the mill companies. Something as simple as a thank you message goes a long way. Of course it also depends on the service provided but in most cases you should be able to communicate with your customers. So in short, reaching out and making their experience personal will definitely put you on their radar for standing out above the rest. I hope that helps :)
In order for people to remember you, you must be able to provide a product or service that sets you apart from other businesses. The marketing of your products or services must be unique and innovative. Branding is also essential.
You have received some very good responses. I would like to add that human behavior in itself provides some good advice. Other than "Smell", the number one thing people will remember is how you made them "feel". Yes, as Coach Wooden explained, he treated everyone as if they are the most important person in the world to him at that moment. Your team should be the extension of such a culture, so that the client experience is consistent.
When done with empathy and sincerity, this is sure to have lasting effects.
So, maintain good hygiene and show people you care.
Always remember that the first impression is a lasting impression.
In introducing yourself or your company, what you say about it in under two minutes will determine if you will be remembered in the midst of all the words that are spoken with your intended recipients by you or by anyone else. Think about it this way, if you were at a cocktail function and there was a crowd of 100 with business cards being shared all over and people pitching to do business with each other despite the wine, what would be so memorable that someone would call you the next morning?
1 - Have a clearly stated company Mission and Values and live that Mission and Values every day when you conduct your business. This is what you become know for.
2 - Be first, different or cheapest.
3 - Be a great story teller, with your customers leading the way (social media).
This is the easiest question to answer:
Play it straight, be respectful, polite
Be on time...all the time.
Be well prepared to answer all questions quickly and frankly., don't play games.
Get back to them promptly on anything they asked for/about.
Give back in abundance, always give beyond expectations.
Fix anything you screw up immediately and make up for it.
Memorize their names, their wife and kids' names, their favorite sports or hobbies, birthdays, pets. In other words have plenty to talk about besides business, it shows you care and are smart.
You never know, they may refer you to others or even hire you.
Stay away from politics and religion.
Communicate in the fullest sense of the word.
Always say thank you.
