|Goal Setting - Have You Started Yet?
Last month, I encouraged you to set goals for this year – and start working toward them.
How are you doing?
Need some ideas?
Here are just a few ideas you can use to promote your business:
· Offer advice. Share your expertise with your customers. This will help you position yourself as an expert in your field, and it will also keep your name fresh in their minds. Each month, print a few hints, ideas, industry trends, etc., on postcards, and mail them to customers and prospects.
· Promote seasonal offers.
If you own a florist shop, you can send monthly postcards reminding people to give flowers – for Valentine's Day in February, Secretaries' Day in April, Independence Day in July, etc.
· Announce special events.
For example, a bookstore could announce a book signing, new arrivals, contests, etc.
· Promote your successes.
If I sold real estate, I'd send postcards each month featuring beautiful homes I'd recently sold. Each postcard would say, "Your home can be my next success story! When you're ready to sell, call me."
