Is it because you have excellent customer service who puts the client before the sale? Is it because your brand operates on values that align with your client base?
All of these positive attributes of a successful business and happy clients have one thing in common – YOU.
To maintain your existing clients, they want to feel like they know you on a deeper level. By developing a blog for your business, you are better able to communicate with your clients. You can share about your successes, struggles, dreams and aspirations, company interests and values, and more! The more your clients understand who you are and what you stand for, the more they can feel reassured that they have chosen the right business to work with and that they are in good hands.
