Winning Ideas For Your Busines Growth
Time, effort and creative ability will help you get the word out on your business without spending a large amount of money. And, you will need to use each of these wisely.
The best and most reasonable way is good placement on a search engine for generic searches. You can achieve that with a web site designed by the Coach at Web Sites Buddy.
Also, never underestimate the power of referrals. A satisfied customer is your best advertisement. Call or write to your customers and ask them to refer a friend. Or you can ask your long-time customers to give you the names of three or four of their friends who might be interested in your services and write a note to those people introducing yourself.
There are companies offering cash bonuses or discounts to people who refer customers. I don't like these types of arrangements. I used to go to a gym that gives its members a $50 rebate for each referral. But when I asked the management how the sales were going I was told the system didn't work well. I think they might get more people if the $50 discount was offered to the person signing up. Plus, I am uncomfortable with the idea of encouraging my friends to join me in something while I get a financial gain from it. So try to avoid offering to pay your customers for referrals.
Consider cooperative advertising. Sometimes newspapers and radio stations offer this option. Or, try pulling it together yourself. Invite several small businesses that complement your business to join you in an advertising campaign. You could invite a sporting goods store, a chiropractor, a massage therapist and even a small health food store to join you for a fall and winter health campaign. Once you pull the other businesses in make sure to hire a professional advertising person to help you make the most of the campaign.
Don't shy away from asking other successful business owners what they have done to grow their business. Perhaps you might want to give those things a try. Growing a business is all about testing, testing, and re-testing to see what works. Never underestimate the power of even the simplest idea. The very thing that you might consider to be ridiculous could be the thing that has the biggest impact for growth.
