7 Ways To Effectively Market To Your Existing Customers Without Seeming Needy
1. Send Direct Messages On Social Media
Using Facebook direct messages to reach out to your customers is more powerful than you may think.
Not only is it a great way to communicate with your customers but the way Facebook works is the people you direct message with are going to be more likely to show up in your newsfeed, and your posts show up in theirs.
Ryan Stewman has closed hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales via direct messages, and in this THC Podcast, he shares how he does it.
2. Recommend Them On LinkedIn
If you are looking to stand out on LinkedIn, you need to stop just congratulating people on work anniversaries or their new job. That is what everyone does, and nobody pays attention to it.
Instead, try recommending them and writing a review about their business or service. That stands out, and that gets you attention on LinkedIn.

3. Utilize Client Groups On Facebook
Every single person you have done business with and every single person you hope to do business you should have them in a Facebook group. If you do not, you are leaving stacks of money on the table.
This Facebook group doesn’t have to have 50,000 members in it. Just need to have the right members.
So what should your Facebook group be about? Ryan Stewman has been using Facebook groups since they started and had had huge success with them.
In this THC Podcast episode, Ryan will talk about why you need a Facebook group that all your past clients are members of.
4. Share And Retweet Their Posts
Liking a post is the lowest form of social engagement and gets the least amount of attention from the person that made the post.
If you want to get attention from your customers on social start sharing and retweeting their posts. Everybody notices when someone else shares their post.
