Here’s How To Increase the Reach of Your Small Business
If you are looking to expand the reach of your small offline business there are several ways you can achieve this. While you can use the internet to reach out to customers, you can also just become more active in your community.
Let’s take a look…
While it is a great to have a small local business you may be dependent upon local traffic only. This method uses word of mouth marketing from your customers and relies on people just walking into your store. This can work really well but what happens when you encounter a slow period, how can you still attract customers to your business?
If you become an active member of your community you will quickly become more recognized. This means that as well as your business name, people will know, like and trust you. This is a great way to attract new customers to your business.
There are several ways you can become more active locally. You could attend trade shows and conferences. You can sponsor local events, help out at a local school or join local business groups.
Take a look around your community and see where you could lend a hand or donate equipment or supplies of some kind. Even just helping raise awareness for local events is a good starting point.
Are there any kids teams that need new team shirts, or have never had any! Your local animal shelter may need help with fund raising or could benefit from using one of your products or services.
Your donations don’t have to be huge, it is just important to help out whenever you can. Helping promote a local fair or trade event is another option. You could help distribute flyers or even sell tickets for the event.
By doing these things you will easily start reaching more potential customers. This can help when you hit those slower times of years, you can offer discounts and special offers to help increase your sales.
As you become more active in your community other businesses will also start to suggest your business to their customers. Just by putting a face to
your business name, you will start to become well known in your community. Again this will help attract new customers and help to turn them into repeat buyers.
Yes, it does take time and effort to get active in your local community. But if you want your business to earn a good reputation then it is vital that you become an active and supportive member.
