TIPS ON INCREASING YOUR BUSINESS
Happy customers are your best sales force. The most successful way to attract more business is to share the experience of your existing customers, adding credibility to your marketing message. After all, they’ve experienced your product or service and are happy enough to tell others about it. Prospects are more likely to believe what other people say about you — than what you say about your business.
If you use the power of testimonials in your advertising — you will increase your business. This is a proven method that gets results. Take the time to either follow up with customers who send you glowing comments or ask them if they would give you one. Then call or e-mail your newspaper advertising consultant and let them show you how to put your testimonial in print, so your next potential customer can read about your great business. The power is yours, take charge.
Again, three easy steps: Find a happy customer; write down what they love about your business; call your ad consultant to share it with your future customers in the newspaper. Powerful, yet easy.
