Tips from Thursday, December 18, 2008
The Small Business tips today will be about how to establish a presence in your community.
- Take customers and put them on an advisory board. Publicize it and listen to what they have to say.
- Donate things to represent your business. Not just money but perhaps a product of yours to help a cause?
- Volunteer! Get involved in the community and encourage employees to do so too. It's marketing via involvement.
- Sponsor a team or event. Don't just offer the money. George Washington is the face on the $, you be the face of the involvement.
Daily Overview: Being present is the only way to have a presence. To your community, it's not just about the money.
I post small business tips on my Twitter account each day, Monday through Friday. This is a reposting of those tips.
