So how annoying is the popular ” DM FOR PRICE” response to potential customers & how is it currently affecting your business?
Aren’t we all tired of the DM FOR PRICE response or is it just me? It dazzles me every time I reply to a certain product post on social media that interests me just to get the DM FOR DETAILS response.
Al be very honest, 98% of the time I immediately loose interest because truth be told like most people lack the time and the possible patience required to go all the way to someone’s DM to discuss a product that I may not possibly need as much.
The other 1% I may be willing to DM you but I might either postpone or forget because as I said before just like any other individual am navigating through a busy day.
The remaining 1% is when am really interested in what you are selling if not desperate that I will actually slide in your DM to discuss it. This mainly happens when I find either something I have been looking for quite a while or maybe you’re selling something uniquely gorgeous and irrestable.
WHY YOU EASILY LOSE CUSTOMERS OVER IT
Most customers are busy and may lose interest when they don’t get a direct response.
They might find it a bother & choose to ignore your product.
A PROFFESSIONAL’S TAKE
Post a picture with a proper description of the item including price and other specifications.
This will reduce the amount of time a potential client will spend getting to understand your product.
You will appear transparent & prevent disparaging comments from those who cannot afford it or are not in your target market.
In case of the need to privately address your customer for whatever reason we recommend you DM them yourself. While this may seem tedious it will attract more interest from the customers since it not only gives you a professional look but also makes it easier for that particular customer.
HOW YOU CAN USE YOUR DM TO LARGELY PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS
Networking – Businesses get a chance to build relations with potential customers, followers & business associates.
Promotions – You may be able to customize your products / services & promote your work
according to the needs and preferences of that particular client.
Customer service – You are able to privately address customer’s needs, complaints and suggestions to improve customer experience.
