People will print only when they actually feel the need to do so. Most of the people are going to search the keyword “online printing services” on a search engine like Google and then follow the top links from the search page. For this reason it is extremely important that you invest heavily in search engine optimization and targeted Google ad words. Doing so will make sure that you stay relevant and on one of the top positions in the results generated by a search engine.

  • Educate your customers:

You need to inform your customers about the different types of printing services that you offer. For this your website must be as informative and specific as possible. Display informative pictures and information related to different types of prints. It is a possibility that someone who was just looking to get his/her business cards printed might also end up ordering some prints on a coffee mug. You need to make sure that your customers are well aware of the different types of printing services that you offer.

In order to attract customers to different segments, you can also provide one complimentary demo print from some other segment with a bulk order.

You might complete the order well in time but if it reaches the customers with some lag or delay then it can result in some bad reputation. For this reason it is extremely important that you tie up with a major and reliable shipping company. Also make sure that the shipping company has the tools and provisions for real time tracking of your shipments. This will increase the added value of your service and will also increase the customer trust.
