Twelve Simple Ways To Promote Your Business

One universal small business goal is to sell the business's products and services. This is usually best accomplished by positioning the business in front of the target audience, and offering something they can't refuse or find elsewhere.

Update your business cards.  Make your business card stand out from the rest.

Create or update your brochure.  Create a digital version of your brochure for your website.

Get creative with promotional products and give them away at your next networking event 

Rent a booth at a trade show.  Create great handouts.  If possible have free samples or at least a discount coupon as your handouts.

Launch a multi-piece direct mail campaign.  Include a clear and enticing call to action on every direct mail piece.  Use tear cards, inserts, props and attention-getting envelopes to make an impact with your mailings.

Get started with social media for business.  Start a daily blog about your business or service. Create a Facebook page.  Get a vanity URL or username for your Facebook page.  Create a Twitter account.  Reply or retweet someone else on Twitter.  Upload a video to YouTube.

Create an email opt-in on your website and blog.  Offer a free download or free gift to make people willing to add their email address to your email list.  Send regular emails to your list.  Start a free monthly email newsletter.

Send out a customer satisfaction survey.

Ask for referrals.  Make a referral.

Help promote or volunteer your time for a charity event.
