1. Participate in local events
Attending local events provides your business with the opportunity to network with clients, industry professionals, investors and other potential business partners while building brand awareness. Actively engaging within the industry also allows your business to get ahead on upcoming industry trends and incorporate these into your future business strategy.
As a solar business you’re provided with an abundance of opportunities to participate in local trade shows, community fairs and green energy conferences. If you’re from South Australia, take a look at this upcoming solar conference by Energy Spurt, supported by Risen Energy Australia.
2. Stay updated on industry trends
Aside from participating in local events, you can also keep up with renewable energy news through industry-relevant newsletters, social media channels, podcasts and analytics tools (such as the highly popular Google Trends). Pay close attention to thought leaders in the industry as well as your main competitors and leading technology developers within the field to ensure you are always ahead when it comes to your product and service offerings.
3. Revitalise your marketing and advertising approach
Increasing your marketing investment or changing directions with your brand or strategy can help revitalise your business and provide a leg up on the competition. Carefully review your current marketing channels, budget expenditure, brand image, messaging, and overall strategy to find potential areas for improvement and increased audience engagement.
4. Provide exceptional customer support
Don’t end your customer relationships at installation. Offering ongoing support and maintenance to your customers ensures that you retain high quality relationships that encourage positive company reviews and word of mouth. Post-purchase support can include regular maintenance, troubleshooting assistance, or a dedicated team to provide further product information and assistance to your customers.
5. Build relationships with local partners
Quality, local partnerships are going to provide your business with the support you need to provide an outstanding service that moves you ahead of the competition. With opportunities for future cobranding, collaborative marketing, and joint value-adding partnership projects, a valuable industry partnership can provide your business with increased returns on investment across a range of business activities.
