Recognized quarterly, each third Thursday (January, April, July, October), there is a Get To Know Your Customers day.

This year, it’s January 16, April 16, July 16, and October 15, 2020. It is a day that reminds business owners to reach out to their clients to gain a better understanding of what they need to grow.

  2. Distribute a VIP video or photo about a new product or service with contact information to learn more.
  3. Promote a coupon for one product to see how well it sells compared to when there is no sale.

  7. Highlight a customer’s success story (with their permission).
  8. Ask multiple-choice or open-ended questions about how to improve your service or product.
  9. Dig into your data to know who’s visiting; what they are buying/looking at; where they come from, etc. Then, build your next promotional campaign based on your findings.
