Reach New Movers!

Welcome to the TerryWilson3.com podcast, episode 608! Today, we’re tackling a topic that every local business owner needs to pay attention to: reaching new movers in your area and turning them into loyal customers. Whether you run a church, school, restaurant, service business, or retail store, new residents moving into your area represent a golden opportunity for growth and community engagement.

In this episode, we’ll explore practical strategies to connect with these new movers effectively. Here’s a rundown of what we’ll cover and some actionable tips to get you started.

Why New Movers Matter

New movers are in a transitional phase and often seek new places to eat, shop, and engage with services. This makes them highly receptive to discovering new businesses. As a local business, you have the chance to make a lasting first impression, positioning your services as a cornerstone of their new community.

Strategies to Reach New Movers

1. Personalized Welcome Packages

Creating a personalized welcome package is a fantastic way to introduce your business. Include items like:

  • A welcome letter introducing your business and its history.

  • Discount vouchers or coupons for your products or services.

  • Small branded items, such as pens or magnets, to keep your business top-of-mind.

2. Partner with Local Real Estate Agents and Moving Companies

Form partnerships with local real estate agents and moving companies to get your information directly into the hands of new movers. Offer them incentives or commissions for every new customer they refer to your business.

3. Targeted Online Advertising

Use targeted online advertising to reach new movers. Platforms like Facebook and Google Ads allow you to target people based on recent location changes. Create ads that welcome new residents and offer them special promotions.

4. Host Welcome Events

Host events specifically for new movers. This could be an open house, a free community BBQ, or a networking event. Such gatherings provide a welcoming environment for new residents to learn about your business and meet other community members.

5. Community Involvement

Get involved in local community activities and events. Sponsoring local sports teams, participating in community fairs, or hosting charity events are great ways to boost your visibility and show new movers that you’re invested in the community.

Gift Ideas for New Movers

As mentioned in our podcast, here are five thoughtful gift ideas to consider:

  1. Welcome Basket: Fill a basket with local artisanal foods, crafts, a map of the area, and discount vouchers for local businesses.

  2. Gift Cards: Provide gift cards to popular local restaurants, coffee shops, or grocery stores to encourage new residents to explore local favorites.

  3. Essential Kits: Offer kits with everyday essentials like cleaning supplies and toiletries, along with a branded reusable shopping bag.

  4. Local Event Tickets: Give complimentary tickets to local events such as theater performances, sports games, or festivals to immerse new movers in the local culture.

  5. Service Discounts: Offer coupons or discounts for local services like house cleaning, lawn care, or handyman services, potentially in partnership with other local providers.

Reaching new movers in your area is an excellent way to grow your customer base and foster community connections. By implementing these strategies and offering thoughtful gifts, you can make a positive and lasting impression on new residents, turning them into loyal customers.
