Take The Free Way To Push Your Biz

Posted in Synergy Suggestions on 20.10.11 by John Meloche

In yesterday’s blog, we discussed the benefits of handing out promotional gifts to your customers in an effort to increase your client base. At Synergy Marketing Consultants, our expertise lies in increasing your sales without having you spend a fortune. In addition to handing out our great gifts, we do recommend a list of other promotional tactics.

And these ones, you can implement for free! On eHow.com, it is explained that there are a number of resources out there that some business owners simply neglect when it comes to advertising their businesses. Many of them we have discussed in past blogs, but they are definitely worth reiterating.

Using Craigslist is one of the suggestions on eHow.com. We, here at Synergy, do this ourselves. Completely free, the Craigslist website allows you to post an ad in a specific region of the country. Your ad should be concise and clear about what it is your company does. Of course, it should include your contact information and a link to your website so that potential customers may get directly in touch with you.

Work for credit, says eHow.com. The website insists that doing so will help you to build both your connections and your portfolio. It is also one of the best ways to build references for future paying clients. Doing such work will help others to spread the word about what it is you do. After all, increasing your client base is the name of the game.

It is not uncommon for us to recommend the use of social networking websites around here. Many of our past blogs have championed the use of such sites as Facebook and Twitter, as they too are free avenues that allow you to promote your business online. Practicing what we preach, Synergy does its part in keep its social media profiles regularly updated.

Writes eHow.com: “Create your own flyers. Post them wherever you can. Make sure you get permission before you post!” Even kids know how to do that! How do you hear of most garage sales? A sign posted on a fence or light post somewhere usually! And while you want your signs and flyers to be professionally crafted, getting them out there simply requires effort, not money.

Finally, don’t forget to join a networking group. On eHow.com, we are reminded that when you attend meeting and distribute your company information, you are showing the dedication necessary to take your business to the next level. After all, these meetings help you make more connections in your industry while providing the perfect places to pass along your great promotional gifts!
