Beat the Competition with 4 Proven Techniques

You don’t need to be a corporation on scale with Apple or Google in order to provide stellar customer service and enjoy an ongoing increase in sales. In fact, for many small businesses, the advantage is with the people they hire. Forbes reports that 50 percent of all Americans work for a small business and prefer it over a larger company. So how can you make hiring decisions that help you stand above the competition? And how can you earn increased business at the same time?

Here are four tips to success:

1. Be a Match, Not a Company

Some of the best strategies to wooing customers are the same often used to attract the opposite sex. Entrepreneur claims that it’s always best to treat your customers as you would a first date in an ad campaign: be honest and upfront about the product, while demonstrating the customer’s specific needs. Like a first date, furthermore, provide a bit of intrigue to keep them coming back.

2. Offer Security and Peace of Mind

If you sell your products online, some degree of customer hesitation may come with the territory. E-theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the nation, with millions affected each year. To better increase the chances of making or keeping a sale, ensure that your customers know that their data is protected. A service like Lifelock allows your company to maintain a tight hold on your sales data and offers security solutions in the event of a breach. Customers who know that they are in good hands are more likely to return time and time again.

3. Create a Personal Connection

Many companies use some sort of automated response system for their contact method, and the majority of customers dislike it. Small Business Trends puts the individual response high up on their list of advice for new small business owners, recommending that all interactions with customers be done with a personal connection rather than relying on “press 5 for…”. Hire customer service representatives who take this philosophy to heart in order to get better word-of-mouth from consumers. Superior rates of return from your existing market share will follow.

4. Make Sales Mobile

A point-of-sale solution can be the best thing to ever happen to a business. By removing the constraints of the brick-and-mortar store and allowing for mobile sales, companies can bring the product directly to the customer. Entrepreneur notes that a mobile sale can save a small business as much as $10,000 right away while providing a variety of other tangible benefits during its lifecycle. Since it requires little or no training, a point-of-sale solution for your company can effectively turn any employee into a sales agent and further boost the numbers.

Apply these four helpful strategies to your business plan, and cultivate a team of employees who is on board with your company’s goals and the path to get there.

Success Starts in Your Closet: 4 Ways to Command Attention at Work

Several factors lead to success at work, but let’s talk about refining your current wardrobe. It’s likely filled with band tees, crop tops and short skirts, but workplace fashion should start with clean, classic pieces—crisp oxford button-downs, pencil skirts, tailored pantsuits and timeless handbags. Feel fierce at your job by arming your closet with these must-have staples that shout, “Watch out; I’ll be your boss soon.”

Classic Clothing

A white Oxford button-down or French-cuff dress shirt says you mean business. Easily paired with your classic pencil skirt or favorite slacks, a crisp shirt seals the deal.

Black pants are essential to your professional wardrobe. Sleek, formfitting black trousers pair with just about any blouse in your closet. Cover with a sleek textured blazer from a complementary color palette, and you’ll be walking tall through the office.

A classic tailored suit will be useful when interviewing or visiting a client. Invest in a finely constructed modern suit; it’ll be your go-to outfit when you need to step it up. This look will tell everyone in your office that you know who’s in charge—you are, lady.

Dark-washed skinny jeans are perfect for casual Fridays. You’re not careless if you wear denim the right way. Paired with black pumps, a timeless blouse and a handbag that kills, it is anything but improvised. Sport some refined style, and you’ll show up your informal peers who use casual Friday as a reason to slack off.

Polished Handbag

Whether you choose a classic satchel or a designer shoulder bag, a sophisticated handbag is essential to your professional wardrobe. Go with a color that defies the rules of season for unnamed4your staple bag. A polished leather piece that embodies the purity of design will be the best choice for your staple workplace bag.

Accessories That Won’t Quit

There’s no shame in adding a secret undergarment that sucks it in and pulls it up. Invest in quality shapewear that’s slimming and comfortable.

Silk scarves add elegant, lightweight warmth to any professional outfit. Wear them knotted, wrapped or draped for a vintage style that oozes cool.

Unfilled belt loops are a huge no-no in the professional world. People notice when an outfit hasn’t been completed. Pull the look together with a sleek belt. It truly ties everything together.

I Love Shoes

Every on-the-go professional can use a pair (or two) of stylish flats, so add these to your closet when building your professional wardrobe. Another must: a pair of designer black pumps. Leather pumps go beautifully from office daywear to your happy hour outfit.

If you have to, build your professional wardrobe piece by piece. Assess your current businesswear situation and purchase pieces that upgrade what you already have. When starting out, it can take time to fill the hangers with clothes and accessories for work. Use these wardrobe building blocks as a framework to the ultimate closet that empowers you to be a working woman of grace, poise and fearlessness.
