Effective Marketing Tools You May Be Missing: Part 2

overlooked small business marketing tactics in Milwaukee

A few weeks back, we posted a blog covering a few marketing tactics that tend to be overlooked for small business owners in Milwaukee. Oftentimes, people think you need to spend a great deal of money to bring lots of customers through the door. Though they’re small, simple tactics like these are a great way to get your brand name out there! Here are a few more options you can try for your business.

Join or lead an organization

Your local community likely has a number of clubs or organizations tailored to business owners or professionals. Joining one of these clubs is a great way to network and get your name out there. Even better is taking it a step further and eventually running for a board position. Doing this can help expand your role in the community and, in turn, grow your business.

Offer free consultations

Many people want advice. Giving it to them for free will show them you’re committed to helping them further their knowledge and understanding, not just selling them things. Whether it’s a free workshop for a group or a one-on-one meeting, a free consultation may just be the best thing you can do for potential customers.

Place your logo on your car

You’d be surprised how much exposure you’ll get just by placing your company’s logo and/or contact information on your vehicle. Drivers may be curious and take down your number – or, give you a call right away. If you don’t want to commit to full-on graphics for your car, you can get decals or magnets made for a decent cost. It’s at least worth a try!
