It’s no doubt that clients are the lifeblood of every business. It is also obvious that no clients equal no business. But what if traditional methods of attracting new clients stop working and B2B SaaS company is getting stagnant?
One more fact is that the competition in the B2B SaaS world is intensifying. Even if you’ve built an easy-to-use tool that automates different business processes for online store owners, that doesn’t guarantee that your business will be successful. It won’t survive if you’re not good at attracting new customers.
We’ve prepared some creative tips on how you can attract online store owners to your B2B SaaS solution. Check out them and quickly start applying if you didn’t do it before!
#1. Provide educational resources
Educational content, valuable tips for using your B2B SaaS tool, product academy, guides, and other similar resources are what can help you become an authority in your industry. For that, you will need to make a research, choose reliable sources, and the format you want to present it in.
With the help of such resources, you can also explain the business logic of your service and some technical information that will considerably save you time in the future.
#2 Offer discounts or something for free
Providing some services or products for free or with a discount is also a good idea to drive new customers. Customers today are looking for value and deals.
What is also important is that discounts are attractive not only for new customers but can also bring back previous clients. However, it is recommended to ask something in return. It may be testimonials, case studies, product feedbacks, etc.
#3 Start a blog
A blog allows to promote service in an organic manner online. If the valuable content will help to solve the problems people are looking for, then it is a high chance that the followers can convert to customers. Position yourself as an expert in your field and people will trust your business more.
#4 Create helpful videos
Over 40% of people say they prefer consuming content in a video format. It is engaging, easy to share, and effective at convincing potential clients to convert on your solution.
When you create videos, you send valuable and easily consumed information to your audience. 90% of customers say that videos help them make buying decisions.
#5 Get Listed on Popular Directories
Registration on popular directories is a good way to promote your company around the world. Usually, it is completely free to get listed on them.
Business directories also allow to improve your SEO. These listings appear in SERPs and can generate you more traffic.
What is also important is that your potential customers look through many tools similar to yours. That is why you need your listing to be competitive in order to win customer attention. Customer review features can help you strengthen your reputation.
#6 Host a Free Webinar
Webinars are also a powerful way to reach and engage customers. They allow to nurture leads and educate them on why you provide the perfect solution to their problems.
For that, you can use a free webinar tool like Facebook Live or buy professional webinar software.
#7 Use a pull marketing strategy
“Pull marketing” is an approach that allows to draw customers with the help of whitepapers, infographics, blog posts, and other content. Today this strategy is considered to be more effective than “push marketing”.
In general, pull marketing strategies take longer than push marketing to drive results, but that strategy ensures long-term customers and growth.
8# Have the support of popular eCommerce platforms
