You booked your office movers, started the packing process, and designated a moving manager. The checklist is miles long, but you’re making progress on every item on the to-do list. Before you get too far along into the moving madness, you should make sure you aren’t leaving out some of the most important stakeholders of your business — your clients and customers. Moving offices is not something your business can do silently. You need to inform clients and customers of the move as early as possible.
Here are some ideas on how you can inform clients and customers of your upcoming office move.
How to Inform Clients You’re Moving Offices
Your tactic will vary depending on your business type, so keep in mind your specific needs and what would be the best fit for your company. Keep reading to find out the best options for informing clients, and decide which method(s) will work for you.
1. Sign on the door
If you’re a retailer or service provider, a simple sign on the door of your old location may be sufficient for informing your customers. Be sure to include ways to get in touch with you and suggestions for reaching you while you’re closed. You can even consider hosting a grand opening celebration at your new location.
2. Send an email blast to your mailing list
Send an email to your contacts informing them of the move. Let them know your new location, moving date, and what to expect while you’re moving. For example, will you be slow to respond during the week of the move?
3. Website banner
Add a banner to your website informing site visitors of the move. Make the notification highly visible and easy to find.
4. Send postcards to your clients
Send a simple postcard informing clients of your new address. It’s not a bad idea to follow up the direct mail with an email or phone call, depending on how busy you are and the amount of contact you typically maintain with your clients. You don’t want this important notification tossed in the trash!
5. Announce on social media
If you have a lot of followers on social media, this is a great, easy, and free way to announce the move.
And of course, don’t forget to change your address on all of your communications, business listings, utilities, and more. You can use a combination of the tactics listed above to inform clients and customers of your office move. You know your business better than anyone and can choose the best fit for you.
