The simple truth remains that there are many UCaaS providers for which a company can choose from. With a myriad of Big Brand and smaller competitors, it’s time to focus on how you can stand out as an excellent communications solution provider. The following 4 tips can help you turn your leads into customers, and help you create a stronger relationship with your current customers.
1 – Focus
An easy and fast way to set yourself apart from other UCaaS providers is to focus on one niche. To figure out your target market, list out your current customers by vertical. If there are any verticals you would like to service, write them down too. Once you have figured out your target market, you can assess your solution’s strengths and how those strengths cater to your target market or markets.
As you match your solution’s strengths to your target market, you can begin to focus on your preferred niche. Become an expert in that industry. Go the extra mile and learn everything you can to help service those customers. When you can answer a customer’s question without hesitation, you are creating a trusting relationship and bringing your customers value your competitors do not. Offering your clients friendly, knowledgeable interactions can help your business stand out in a positive way.
2 – Put Customers First
Big Brands have a torrid reputation for bad customer service. You can use this to your advantage to create great customer relationships by providing excellent customer service that the Big Brands dare not waste time on. With a more intimate customer base, you can give each of your customers a tailored experience. When you are focused on your specific customer’s industry, you can equip yourself with the tools you need to fix any possible problems before they are even noticed.
3 – Local Ties
When looking at your competition, there is one thing you have that Big Brands just can’t compete with. That is your local ties. If you are active in your community, you create a brand recognition Big Brands and other competitors will not have. Businesses owned by your clients and possible clients will start to trust you when you let them know who you are and how the solutions you offer can help them. With the correct community involvement, your brand will be the first they think of when looking for UCaaS providers. Just remember, it is important to become active in a sincere way. Give back and become active with those local to you and your bottom line will improve.
4 – Product Pricing
Many UCaaS providers base their pricing off their costs. Stand out from the competition by offering a value-based pricing model. When your pricing language is focused on the benefits your product delivers, you reinforce the trust in the relationship you are building with them. This is hard for Big Businesses to replicate, as they cannot tailor their offerings to individual customers.
As you are incorporating a value-based pricing model, you will need to avoid making these common UCaaS provider product pricing mistakes:
- matching the competition’s pricing
- engaging in price wars
- pricing based on volume
- selling everything to everyone
- charging for multiple devices
