We’ve been discussing how and where to grow your business. We’ve touched on the places that Carlos started out at the beginning to market himself, and the approach he used to show his authenticity in those places.
My education in advertising my business started with a fish house on the bayou. Let no stone go unturned, my friends! Advertise EVERYWHERE you go! I invite you to watch this week’s video, and be ready to take some notes. Trust me! You’ll want to remember this.
So, how do you get your name in every business? Advertise, advertise, advertise! Wouldn’t it be great if we had entire businesses coming to see us? It is possible. You just have to do the work!
Get yourself a consistent spot in your community newspaper. Put your kind smile on a billboard. Partner with a local restaurant. Get involved with the radio station. Get to know people in your community. Keep it local, and advertise where you are.
Do you have a business in mind already? Okay, great! Remember to go in with that mindset of truth we’ve been talking about for the last couple weeks. You’re not soliciting business. You’re MARKETING. Don’t go in there trying to sell them a car. In fact, don’t talk about yourself at all. Talk about them, and keep showing up!
When it feels right, let them know that you and your dealership want to thank them for all they do. Just try it, and offer one or two of the perks listed below.
“Because we appreciate so deeply the impact your business makes in our community, we would like to offer your employees…”
“I’ll be happy to create a flyer specific to your needs that you can put it in the envelope with their checks.”
Do this, and you’re one giant step closer to your next level. You are not only immediately marketing to a whole lot of people, you’re marketing to a whole lot of people with a job! Brilliant.
