Get it together People!!
Advertising your business is one of the few things that seems to be on most Business Owners “need to do” list. However it is also the one thing they cut from their budget or decrease the $$ value on when times are tough.
I will never understand how a Business Owner can complain about not having enough business, and they do nothing to promote their business other than opening the doors. It just seems like they have been lost in the 60’s way of doing things. Ya know, a time when there was only one maybe two stores in town and people shopped there just because everyone was like family.
Ok lets come back to 2012.
The Internet, Computers, iPads, Tablets, Smart Phones…
You can’t turn around without seeing someone with modern technology. These “Lost in the 60’s” Business Owners are closing their doors one by one and it could all be prevented if they would just listen to what other’s have said.
It’s not rocket science people. There are thousands and thousands of educated people who can help you market and advertise your business. Many are affordable, a few are outrageous, but there are people that can help you stay competitive with your competition. Let’s face the facts, you are not the only person in the world selling products, promoting clothing, etc… so you have to do something different if you want to continue to compete in today’s marketplace.
Find a person or a company that does online marketing and let them help you.
If you need a website, get one! There are places where you can get a website for free and they make it simple to build.
Find someone who can set you up for mobile marketing and start a venue that promotes your daily/weekly/monthly special. This is a great way to get that message out to the age group you are trying to reach.
Have a profitable day!
