    Don`t forget, your advertisement has to speak directly to your target customer`s emotions.  Something like direct response style ads work very to grab your prospect`s attention.  Especially if your industry isn`t saturated with that kind of advertisments.You`ll stand out, the viewers of your advertisments will take notice and you attract more customers.  Just remember to state the benefits to them.

    When it comes to building your client base, there’s a wealth of advice from other professionals out there, but it’s hard to always know what will work best for you and your unique business. What if I were to tell you that there is one GUARANTEED way to attract new customers to you at outings and events? And it’s so simple, anyone can do it. 
    All you have to do is… Smile! Yes, you read it right- SMILE. A smile is one of the easiest way to build your business. Smiling isn’t just something your face does. It communicates your state of mind. Putting a smile on your face is 100% free, and yet it makes you look like a million bucks. Even if someone doesn’t sign on to be your client at the event, you want to make a positive lasting impression so they can find you again later when they are ready. No matter what event you’re attending, be sure to pack a smile. Wear it before, during, and after for best results, and watch your client list skyrocket!

    I believe after work on advertising and promoting your brand on social media, only thing left is you can put some discount on your product or promotion like buy 3 get 1 free.

    This question is equal to the question about chicken and egg.
    People for all the time from the emergence of such a concept as the economy try to understand how to attract more customers to them and entice them away from competitors.
    Times change, ways to attract the same. And in a modern fast flow of information you need to "keep your hand on the pulse" all the time.

    If you ask a general question without any supporting information, you will get only general answers. What is your industry? What products do you sell? Who is your customer? Where is your business located?

    It’s easy. No matter if you’re a local business or already a company with few clients, the following steps will help you find more clients.

    1. Save part of the monthly budget for online advertising.
    2. Use essential social media and official company channels to attract the right customers/clients. Don’t worry, they’ll start coming if you’re willing to invest time and money in these channels.
    3. Use discounts, special offers, etc., to attract more people for fewer profits. Remember, this is all part of getting recognized.
    4. The clients/customers you worked for/served are now your brand ambassadors. Good, affordable services and products are often heard about in the community.

    You can announce discounts coupons for new customers or give 20%-30% discount on first purchase. Announce 1 or 2 luck winner in a month and give them any free service

    Before executing any strategy, you need to have a structured and well thought out brand in place. Most importantly a visual brand identity.

    Then you'll be able to establish familiarity amongst your audience and all other strategies will become that much easier to execute.
