In conversation with Abiodun Atoyebi, we found out what makes Vendora Visuals work and how does registering as a professional on VConnect help him.
Question 1- Tell us something about Vendora Visuals
Answer 1- Vendora Visuals is an audiovisual solutions company servicing clients in the corporate as well as personal space. We have practical experience producing photographs, documentaries, movies, commercials and many more mediums of visual marketing. It is my brainchild and took its humble steps as an act of passion.
Question 2- Why did you choose VConnect to showcase your business?
Answer 2- In my line of work, it is extremely difficult to find clients. More than the cost of acquiring a client is the cost of retention. Add to this the marketing costs to boost my business. I left a cushy job to pursue a dream and VConnect helped me realize it. It is a trusted brand that understands my niche market and unique proposition. It gets me clients who I can trust to pay me the right amount at the end of delivering the work.
Question 3- How has your business been affected by VConnect?
Answer 3- Signing up with VConnect has improved my visibility and discoverability in the competitive market that I work in. For instance, I was in a meeting with a new client and just a simple act of Googling about my company-Vendora Visuals, lead to getting the project. Thanks to VConnect I was easily discoverable on Google search and the client could check up references easily and quickly. VConnect got my back!
Question 4- What other mediums do you use to promote your business?
Answer 4- Word of mouth and client referrals work well for me. Although it is a slower process to get clients, it still fetches me business. It really helps that VConnect as part of the registration of a professional, asks for client referrals and seeks testimonials once the job is done. It helps to have the referrals and client’s encouraging words on a platform. I also use social media platforms like Instagram, Linked-in, Facebook but only upon the verification stamp from a trusted organization like VConnect has made my social media platforms profitable.
Question 5- How do you address customer complaints?
Answer 5- It is important to add a personal touch while addressing customer grievances. I make it a point to reach out to the disgruntled customer myself and try to sort the problem to the best of my ability. Representatives from VConnect also help by sharing pointers that are useful in talking to a customer.
Question 6- How does launch of market.vconnect help you?
Answer 6- It creates a mall like an interface for businesses to connect with customers, instead of the other way round. It gives businesses a chance to amplify the business by being proactive about looking for customers.
Question 7-What suggestions would you give to other professionals looking to register on Vconnect?
Answer 7- I would ask them why haven’t you registered yet!? My suggestion to ANY type of business is to join VConnect as soon as possible. It is so worth it and honestly, there is nothing to lose!
