When you run a small business, half the battle is getting people to notice you. Getting people to notice you is the first step to getting them to walk into your business. Attracting attention is the key to increased sales and growing your business. Here are some simple ways that you can get your small business noticed.
Keep your business clean and appealing. Keeping your business clean may seem like an obvious thing to do but some people still don’t get it. It’s more likely that someone will be interested in coming into a business that is neat and clean inside and outside. They call it “curb appeal” and businesses who know how to use it can drive business into their establishments. Step back and look at your storefront and think about how others see it, what would make it more attractive to passersby. You may be surprised what a little effort can do for your business.
To get noticed in the community, you must get involved with the community. Getting involved with the community is a grate way to increase brand awareness. There are many ways you can get involved with your community. Sponsor a local sports team is one good way to offer support and it will get your logo out there for people to see. Go to your chamber of commerce and see what other ways of involvement there are.
Use direct mail to get your name out there. Direct mail may sometimes have a better chance of being looked at than electronic mail. Direct mail is something tangible that people can keep around for reference.
Try getting together with another business and cross promote each other. Cross promoting is a great idea as it can help you and your fellow businesses out while creating more business all around.
Getting you business noticed will help you turn your small business into a big business.
