It’s important for any business to reach out to their customers to inform them of anything going on with the company. However, it’s just as important to not overwhelm customers with so much information that they get annoyed. The key to having a successful relationship with customers is to be on their minds, but not always in their face. 

Many times, businesses think that the best way to get a customer’s attention is to bombard them, whether that’s through email, handouts, or with never-ending social media posts.

  2. Don’t try to sell a service or product too much
  3. Be honest
  4. Be Aware
