Having no marketing budget is no excuse for not marketing. Here are three ideas you can use to promote your business, and each of them cost less than $10.
You might laugh when you see the list. But it's my belief that many of the businesses we see closing their doors these days might have been saved by the diligent application of $10 marketing tactics.
1. Call every one of your past customers on the phone and ask them if they need help with anything. Listen to their answer.
2. Write a letter to every one of your past customers and ask them if they need help with anything. Watch for their response, or be ready for their phone call.
3. If you send out any kind of billing each month, include an offer inside each envelope. It can be a simple one sheet description of a product-but it must contain a call to action. Ask for the order.
Now, you might say that some of these will cost more than $10. It's true, if you're going to mail all your past customers and you have 100,000 of them, it will cost more than 10 bucks. But my guess is, if the title of this post caught your attention, your problem is not having 100,000 previous customers and not knowing what to do with them.
