A great way to get on the radar of a company you admire is to give them something they need. Sometimes, though, it just seems like your beloved business has everything it needs — how can you find an area where you can stand out for them?
1: Stalk them on social media. If you don’t already do this, keeping an eye on a company’s online presence can be a great way to find where you can begin helping out. Companies that are always connecting and interacting with their audiences are the winners in today’s world, and you have a unique perspective as part of the audience to show the business what you, and others, want to see from them.
2: Find out what others love about them. There are tons of review platforms out there, and chances are some lovely reviews have been left by customers that the company you adore could be utilizing. One of the first things potential customers want to know is how satisfied existing customers were, so brainstorming ways the business can display good reviews is a great way to provide value.
3: Know their potential audience. Businesses need customers, and are always on the lookout for a new audience they can serve with their product. As part of the audience, you have an insider’s view of how the company’s product or service benefits you, and how it could benefit others. Finding other businesses, groups, or individuals who might love the company and then connecting them is a great way to show you really know how to bring value to a business.
