Two Things You Can Do Today to Promote Your Business

Implementing a promotional strategy doesn’t have to be difficult.  Start small.

Here are today’s quick ideas to increase your sales turnover and word-of-mouth…

  • Cross-promote with non-competing businesses who have similar clients.  (Example: A Hair salon might team up with a local boutique to promote each other.  Be creative. Offer a discount to each other’s business, make referrals, or create an event…)
  • Ask for referrals immediately after delivering quality, satisfactory results.  Do not waste time.  When customers are pleased, remember TO ASK for a testimonial and a referral.
