Are You Utilizing These Low-Cost Ways To Promote Your Company?
In addition to your advertising campaigns and time-consuming
promotional programs you can reinforce your company's name and
increase sales through vehicles you already have in place.
Here's a look at some opportunities to pursue that don't cost much,
but have been proven to be very effective for many entrepreneurs.
1. Voice-mail messages: Remind callers to
visit your web site, or take advantage of upcoming seasonal
promotions. You can also use your company's tag line or slogan in
the message to reinforce awareness.
programming: Use on-hold time to communicate to a captive
audience. Instead of playing elevator music, use that valuable time
to remind customers about special promotions or relay useful
3. Phone manner: Be sure
whoever answers the phone at your place of business is upbeat and
helpful to callers. This person is your vice president of first
impressions! Employees fielding phone calls should be able to answer
questions or know where to get answers ... especially when a
customer or prospect calls.
4. Business cards:
Consider printing information on both sides of your business cards.
The backside of your card could include a description of your
company, hours of operation, a map, your mission statement, or other
5. Occasion cards:
Send birthday cards, Thanksgiving Day cards, and congratulatory
cards — they're great ways to let customers know that you care about
6. Signage: Look for other ways to use signage such
as at community or business events, or even on your vehicle. When a
magnetic sign is affixed to the side of your car, everywhere you go
you are promoting your business.
7. In-store venues: Your
windows, countertops, reception area, walls and other on-site areas
should be considered when planning business points of interest.
Frame your advertising campaigns, and hang them on your walls.
Create mini-signs for your countertops. Adorn visible windows with
appropriate displays or graphics.
8. E-mail signatures: Put
your contact information, a description of your web site's unique
selling points, and a tip about what's new at your site. This will
help customers find needed information easily and will also help
facilitate media interviews.
9. Charities: Teaming up for a good
cause — whether by donating your products or services, or
volunteering your time — on a non-profit board of trustees will
foster goodwill within your community.

Every time you lower your purchasing cost, you're making your
company stronger. And barter is a proficient business tool that
helps you accomplish this feat.
