You’ve done it! You’ve raised your pre-seed round and now you’re ready to take your business to the next level. Congratulations! But now what?
This can be a daunting question, but don’t worry, Rainfactory is here to help. In this article, we’ll discuss what comes next for your business and how you can start acquiring new customers.
One of the most important things you need to do after raising your pre-seed round is to focus on customer acquisition. This means creating a plan for how you will reach new customers online and grow your business. The top 3 areas to focus on are:
• Social media marketing – This involves using social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to reach new customers.
• PPC (pay-per-click) advertising – This involves paying to have your ads displayed on websites or in search engines.
• CRO (conversion rate optimization) – This is the process of improving your website’s conversion rate, or the percentage of visitors who take a desired action such as subscribing to your email list or buying a product.
Another important task is customer retention. You need to make sure you are doing everything you can to keep your first customers happy and engaged. This includes building systems to gather feedback, providing excellent customer support, and staying in touch with them regularly.
Your lead investor will likely do a kick-off meeting with you. Here’s the most important question to ask: “What do we need to accomplish to achieve our next fundraise?” This will definitely lead to some enlightening conversations.
Finally, remember that it takes time and hard work to grow a successful business. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results immediately. Keep working hard and stay focused on your goals, and you’ll achieve success in no time!
