Asking your customers what they think about the product, packaging, shipping, price, service, and more is a fantastic way to foster a strong relationship with them. We recommend that you place a Flowcode within the packaging of your items or in the invoice of your service that links consumers to a feedback survey. This survey should be simple, quick, and direct. This way, you can hear their thoughts on the interaction, and thus you make the relationship more than just a transaction!
QR codes are perfectly designed for anydistributed paper materials . This is because they can reach large audiences and instantly flow from the physical world (a brochure, flyer, poster, etc.) to the online world– their smartphone! Include a Flowcode on your paper materials with a direct call to action, like “Learn More,” “Sign up for our mailing list,” or “Scan for 10% off your first order!” These simple and direct messages help instantly connect your customers to your online storefront, review platform, social media profiles, and anything else you want.
Business cards may already seem archaic to some businesspeople. However, lots of business deals can still be made face-to-face. The simplest way to stay connected with prospective clients still is by exchanging your contact information via business cards. Choose to modernize yours byincluding a QR code that instantly scans to your mailing list sign up, a contact collection form, or a landing page that houses all the ways to reach you, including your phone, email, address, Linkedin, and more.
Every year, consumers are seeking out more information about the businesses they support. The average consumer is more informed now than ever, which creates an opportunity for your business to stand out! Create a QR code that links to an “Our Story” page, and place it in each order that you send out. This is a modest and direct way of showcasing your unique background, mission statement, and value.
Social media is a great way to drum up business, but it works best when your followers are engaged. This means your best bet is the get actual consumers of your products following the account. Your goal should be to immediately connect people to your social media platforms after they place or receive their order. Create a Flowcode that links to your social media platforms and include it on your business card, in your packaging, or in the newsletter. This will keep the most engaged subset of your consumers aware and active on your page.
Customers may want to order your products later, read the full ingredients list, search for customer reviews, and more. By distributing QR codes for your products, you provide customers with an visual reminder to check them out on their own time, when it's most convenient. This gives them much more freedom to make an informed decision, and hopefully fall in love with your product!
Loyalty rewards are an excellent strategy to build strong customer relationships. With each sale, you could send customers a"point" towards a goal, a unique coupon code, or whatever you decide. The best way to give them access to this reward is with their own unique QR code that leads them directly to your Etsy storefront. This can also scan to a third party site where they can accumulate rewards under their profile.
Expiration dates create an incentive to purchase sooner, so they are great to promote loyal customers. These customers– who likely already plan to shop with you again— will see the added value in shopping sooner rather than later. The added ease of scanning directly to the promotion from your unique Flowcode will encourage them to return to your online storefront and make the purchase before they forget.
Reviews are becoming a more powerful way to get sales each day. With the ever-growing number of Etsy sellers, customers seek out positive and specific reviews to decide where to shop. Simplifying the reviewing process is the smartest thing you can do to create visible credibility and support for prospective customers.
