Marketing Tip #2: Tell your existing customers

Well, we’ve talked about getting the word out to the digital world (if you missed Tip #1, you can read it here), and today we’d like to cover some ways to share the news of your freshly minted app with your existing customers.

Ever heard of the concept of starting with the low-hanging fruit? That’s the idea here. Tell the bidders and sellers already on your mailing list — or coming to your auctions — about your new tech tool. Although you don't need to work to convert them into customers, it's worth your time to make them more engaged customers (i.e. get them to download and use your new app).

You’ll find a useful letter to help do that in your Dropbox 2 folder. Personalize and use the .doc to announce your app to your customers in letter form. Make sure to use your stationery for the printing.

We have a couple other tools our clients have found effective. We'd be happy to create them for you if you think you'll use them.

PHONE CARD Designed to look like a smartphone, you can hand out this eye-catching piece at auctions or your office. We'll send you a print-ready .pdf along with instructions on how to get it produced to best effect. (Or we can place the order for you, with permission to use your credit card on file.)

APP LABEL Set up to look like a standard Avery label, this .png file can be placed on your existing flyers and ads to let folks know about your mobile bidding app. Think of it as a digital sticker.

If you decide you want either of the above resources, just contact us and we'll create the files and put them in the same folder along with the letter. We want to make sure you get the most out of your app. Let us know if there are other ways we can help you succeed.

Happy marketing,
