    10 Steps To Promote Your Business - Cold calling can...

    (Page 3 of 3 )

    7) Cold calling can send shivers down your spine! However, it is a highly targeted way to promote your business. Donít expect to close a deal over the phone Ė again this is about finding out information as much as selling. Use phone calls as the first step to getting to know your prospective clients better. Donít make a full pitch but arrange an appointment or ask permission to send on further materials about your business. And remember to speak s-l-o-w-l-y! For a Cold Calling Crash course to get you over your fears and anxieties, take a look at Do Your Own PR.

    8) Referrals are a valuable and inexpensive way to find new clients. Itís not about being pushy, itís about building long term business relationships based on trust. Start by asking each of your clients or suppliers for three contacts of other people who might like to find out more about your business. You could offer to reciprocate and provide three useful contacts in return. Make it a regular habit to give referrals as well as ask for them.

    9) Press releases must be targeted. There is little point sending round a generic press release to hundreds of newspapers. Start by focusing on five publications ideal for your target market. Read back editions thoroughly Ė understand what kind of stories they like to publish and the style of language they use. Find a relevant news hook and tailor your press release specifically for each publication. The first paragraph is key and must provide the who, what, where, when and why of your story. For excellent tips on writing press releases visit Bizhelp24 .

    10) Patience and persistence are the most important tools to promote your small businesses! If you try each of the strategies above and build them into a regular marketing plan, you will certainly boost your profile, without a doubt!
