Promoting your business is the key to success. And there are some great ways to get the word buzzing about your business. Here are some of the best ways to promote your self. So go ahead and toot your own horn.

Get a blog and direct your customers to it

WordPress and Blogger offer user-friendly options for first time visitors to the blogosphere. Free account options are available for you to engage and inform your readers about all the things that set you apart from other companies professionally.

Design a business card that grabs people’s attention

A well-designed business card is classy, straightforward, and useful. It provides important information about the type of establishment that you run, your business’s name, physical and Web address and a logo or motto to help with branding.

Set up a mailing list and offer your customers incentives for signing up for it. 

Keeping in constant communication with your customers gives you a distinct advantage. Offering sales and promotions from time to time to the people who are considerate enough to provide you with their contact information promotes goodwill and loyalty among your customers.

Implement a referral program

Customers that are willing to go the extra mile to promote your products and services can be rewarded for their referrals.  Keep incentives coming and mix up the offers to help maintain the enthusiasm day after day.

Co-market with another business

Enlist the help of your friends and fellow business owners by implementing a plan that allows you to market their products or services alongside your own.  These entrepreneurs will return the favor by finding a way to get the word out about your business whether it involves linking back to your website via their blog or getting a poster-sized ad on the door where customers can see it.

Send thank you and congratulation’s cards

Keep on top of mind of your clients or friends. Send thank you letter after they have used your services or they have referred someone to you. Remember their Birthdays and any other special occasions.
