What constitutes a successful company? Is it a good product? Is it dependable customer service and after-sales? Is it aggressive advertising?
Well, those are indeed good parameters to measure a successful company. But the biggest achievement a company must obtain for it to be considered successful is the ability to convert one-time buyer into a customer with hard-rock loyalty to your brand. A dedicated customer is one that has been head over heels with you and your products and they would not find it hard to spend anything to get your products. This, in turn, becomes a source of profit for you.
One thing to make people fall for your branding efforts is by catering to what they essentially need and whatever whims they have—within reason, that is. If your startup can meet these, there is no way they would turn to others because they are not being given any reason to.
Design a product that everyone needs and make sure that the product comes with an added bonus of the inclusion of things they could possibly want.
Maintaining a well-established relationship and communication with your customers is also another important thing to keep in mind. Engage your customers via any social media platforms out there. If you must, hire a social media celebrity to lure even more potential customers. Do anything to stay connected with your audience. Establish within your own company a strong and knowledgeable customer service. This is the most effective way for you to let your customers know that you do care about them and wish to help them in any ways possible.
Learn from the brands that have had success ahead of you, especially in this regard: How they treat their customers after selling them their products. Remember, this also has a lot of things to do with how professional you will appear in the process.
