Another 3 Great Marketing Tips To Grow Your Business
I just wanted to share a few more tips to get those wheels turning and creative juices flowing on how to get your small business out there are create some revenue!
Social media is without a doubt a valuable and inexpensive way to market your small business and keep your brand on your consumer's mind, this includes: Instagram, Twitter, FourSquare and Google Plus. However, it's not the ONLY affordable and effective way to extend your client base and inform them of your products and services. My tips here really focus on revving up potential business locally by getting involved in your community. It's good to keep an eye on the bigger picture, however, it's not a bad idea to start small.
Put together a group of local business that are all related but not competing and agree to cross-promote! Put together a package deal or have corresponding web links, fliers, etc. You’ll all expand your client base by reaching new people! Those looking for one service through one of your connections, could be made of aware of your product or vice versa. Working together always creates positive results for a small business community.
You don’t have to reach people 1,000 miles away to expand your business. Get involved in your local community by sponsoring a little league team, or an event such as a local 10K race. Find common ground between you and your clients and come up with creative ways to get your name in front of them.
Make a Presentation
There are MANY organizations in your community that you most likely are unaware of. They’re all looking for informed, qualified people to present to their group. Public speaking can be daunting, but practice makes perfect! As long as you have good information to present, you’re being helpful! This also puts you in a position as a credible authority in your field.
