In today’s business environment, customer relationships are everything. Any company can offer a killer product and employ a strong marketing campaign–one might argue this is the bare minimum to generate profit. But even the most robust business plan is irrelevant unless your idea resonates with your target market. Whether you are a B2B or B2C, an engaged audience and loyal customers can bring your brand to the next level.
Standing out in a crowded market isn’t easy. Customers have the luxury of choice. They can find multiple products or services that meet their exact wishes. Internet-savvy consumers seek something unique. How can your business stand out?
Streamlined purchasing, thoughtful promotions, and community connections are strong possibilities. While this may sound like a lofty goal, it is easier than expected. In fact, your payments provider can support this endeavor. StrongholdNET not only improves your business but also transforms your customer experience.
Payments Don’t Have to be Painful
Payments are among the least exciting but essential parts of setting up your business. They don’t typically offer the customization or creativity of your website, social media, or marketing. Still, there’s a lot to remember while selecting your payment provider. What forms of payment do you want to accept? Does your business have an online component? Are there particular industry regulations to monitor? Finding solutions can lead to hours spent scouring comparison sites or listening to sales pitches.
StrongholdNET exists to take the pain out of payments. We offer card processing and checkout systems to keep your in-person payments running smoothly. Simultaneously, we connect you to virtual payment networks and ACH transfers to keep your business thriving in the e-commerce age. Thanks to our user-friendly open APIs, integrating StrongholdNET services is quick and easy.
In return, your customers receive a simple and efficient payment experience. They don’t have to download external apps or receive mysteriously named charges on their bank account at the end of the month. StrongholdNET delivers payments that look and feel like yours, backed by the most cutting-edge and trusted technology.
Run Promotions without Hurting Your Profits
Running promotions is a popular business tactic to increase customer satisfaction. But over-using markdowns or buy-one-get-one-free offers can have serious consequences for your business. Customers expect lower prices, and your product loses its worth. People will only buy during sale periods. The last thing you need you should worry about is sales working against your bottom line.
Instead, credit-based promotions, like $5 off a $25 purchase, combine the best of both worlds. They are a great starting place for small businesses to enter the world of discounts and sales. We’re expanding StrongholdNET to include promotions that leave your customers and your profit flow happy and healthy.
