Make sure that you give off the impression that you welcome interaction and integrate a contact form onto your website. The forms vary a great deal and come in all different shapes and sizes and can be used for a number of different purposes depending on what sort of information you wish to gather from your audience.
2) Social Media presence is a must

This is where you can communicate with customers an environment in which they are completely comfortable and free to share ideas and opinions. The next question is where exactly is your target audience?

3) Launch event should be impressive
Take care of the potential customers when they visit your store or facilities. Make sure that there are plenty of opportunities for potential customers to speak to current customers who can vouch for your other products and answer any queries/concerns that they may have. Give them access to some of the flagship products as samples that are available so that they can understand the quality and your after sales services. As obvious as this may sounds, make sure potential customers leave with plenty of freebies such as pens, bags, flags which may go some way to influencing their decision and your brand to be top of mind when they make the decision to buy. As well as this, it’s an easy way to gauge exactly what customers are looking for and what they like or dislike. If you make launch event a unique experience then they can be used as part of your promotional marketing campaign and it may help to influence another potential customer to choose your company.
