From the Seeds of an Idea: Growing Your Small Business

From the Seeds of an Idea: Growing Your Small Business

So, you have a business, and you are ready to start selling your product. The problem is, how do you a) create a consumer base, and b) grow it at the same time?

 

When starting a business, there are a few questions that should be answered. The first of these is “How can I be different from my competition?” You are not likely to succeed if you are establishing a brand under the premise of trying to lure customers away from somewhere else. Simply put, you need to look at your competition, find out what did not work, and make sure that you do not make the same mistakes. This is also important when it comes to your own presence on reviewing sites (Yelp, for example). If you get a negative review on one of these sites, use that criticism in a constructive way, and fix what is causing a negative review. By the same token, accentuate what is being said that is positive about your business. This is key to getting off the ground and into the marketplace.

 

Another part of establishing your brand is having a voice on social media. This means creating pages on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn to start. All of these sites have nuances to them that are beneficial to you. Businesses today are operating in an age where engaging customers is paramount to retention and expansion. If your customers feel like your business cares about them, they will most likely become a returning customer, and will also recommend you to potential clients.

How GiftFly Can Help Your Business: A Guide for Merchants

It is no secret that innovation is what drives the marketplace in business. The most successful companies are the ones that stand out from their competition. They have the “it factor” that brings in consumers, and more importantly, their money. Over the past 15 years, gift cards have become an increasingly prominent piece of commerce. In the age of the Internet, e-gifting has cornered its own section of this business, growing from $300 million in 2012 to an estimated $3 billion in sales in 2013. At GiftFly, we have come up with a way that allows you to sell gift cards in a way that was impossible before. It also provides you with new and innovative ways to market to your customer base. With GiftFly, you can truly set yourself apart from businesses that are vying for the same spot.

 

So, what exactly is GiftFly? We are an online gift card solution that allows your customers to buy gift cards to your business at all hours of the day. Consumers will buy a gift card in any amount, and the receiver will get his/her digital gift card via email, Facebook and/or text. They will then come into your business to redeem their eGift card, at which point you will scan it using our free QR-scanning app for merchants. We also set you up with an online merchant dashboard that allows you to track transactions and access customer information in real time. Finally, we provide you with the GiftFly widget so that you can embed a custom button that allows your customers to buy & send online gift cards from your own website as well as various signage materials to promote your new product.

Father’s Day is Coming Up, Celebrate with a GiftFly!

It is commonly known that a baby’s first word is usually some form of “Dad.” Every June, we celebrate our fathers, who taught us how to throw a ball for the first time and took us to our first sporting event. When Father’s Day comes around, our dads usually have a new pair of socks or a tie to look forward to. This Father’s Day, how about you turn the tables and send him an online gift card? Give him something that he will love and enjoy!
