So, in a nutshell, how do you find customers for your small business? Let’s look at four concepts which are touched upon in Ron’s books:
- Network referrals
- Strategic alliances
- Event marketing
You all know about advertising. You are all bombarded with it daily. One study suggested that the average person is in contact with over three-hundred advertisements daily, and quite frankly that number sounds low. The ways to advertise are practically endless, from direct mail to television to radio to billboards. But smart advertising is understanding how to get the biggest bang for your buck. It is understanding how best to reach your target audience, something which is crucial for a small business. The last thing the owner of a small business, with a small budget, wants to do is waste money advertising when he/she does not have money to waste.
The Joy of Referrals
“My buddy over at ABC Store sent me to you guys. He said you do the best printing at the best price, so here I am!”That kind of marketing/advertising is called a referral, and it is priceless . . . literally priceless. Referrals originate from networking and forming alliances with other business people, so become active in your business community and the community will work for you.
Let the other guy work for you
Piggyback on the efforts of others and the events of others. Find related businesses which deal with product on the periphery of your business. For instance, a web designer will run into customers in need of content writers. Those are the people you want to be hanging with at industry events.
409 small business events
Mr. Sturgeon has also written a book titled “409 Low Cost Events” that will bring you customers in any economy. Read this book and you will come away with ideas directly related to your business, ideas which will directly affect and increase your bottom line.
