Bob Steward at Activerain challenged all of us to write about local business and he offered a mess of points for doing so. One of the business' I wrote about was Jan's Place in Elkhart Indiana, and I have been there for a total of 3 times now, enjoying breakfast each time I have gone. Take a look at the photo from my first visit to that from yesterday...Notice anything different?
August 18, 2009:
Now, I am not trying to take all the credit for the cars and trucks parked all around Jan's Place, but it does make me wonder. Could I, Evelyn Johnston with Prudential One Realty, have increased their business just by taking a few minutes to talk to them, snapped some photos and put them online? Could it be that ourj efforts can turn around a business or increase the clientele so much so that they stay in business?
I am not concluding that Jan's Place was in any way shape or form about to close. I am merely comparing the photographs that I personally took when I visited.
You be the judge.
- Do you want to be a hero in your market?
- Do you want them to know you by name when you walk in?
- Do you want your local market to succeed?
- Do you want to be influential
