Customer-Involving Signage and Selling
Here's some easy ways to create signage that will attract, not annoy customers (and local government agencies that regulate signage):1. Since movement always attracts attention, any banner, sign set of a pole that might move with the wind or electrically-turned sign will stand out from the static messages around it.
Do Your Business Cards Say Who You REALLY Are?
Here are a couple of tips for creating an eye catching card: Use some color - not too much - just enough to grab someone's attention and make them want to read the card. Use a font that's easy to read. Don't fill the whole card with type - it looks crowded and people don't read it all. Consider using a fold-over card - I have found these to be extremely effective for a number of reasons: a) If a handful of business cards are dropped on a desk only the fold over cards stand up above the rest. b) The fold over card is still unique - not many people use them. c) I use mine as a mini brochure - inside it tells about my qualifications, services I offer and skills I have, the front has my name, phone #'s, email address, URL and postal address. Another popular addition is your photo - this makes you seem more approachable and friendly (if your business is one where you deal directly with the public I suggest you consider adding a photo)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------How to make sure your cards are really working for you? Have a goal to give away AT LEAST 5 CARDS A DAY to build your network: Leave one with a tip for a waitress. When you "check in" at the doctor or dentist reception desk don't spell your name - give your card. Carry them in your pocket when you walk the dog and hand one out to people you stop and chat with. Make sure all your children's friends parents know what you do and have your card. Ask someone else for their card and give them yours (you can build your mailing list and get some exposure at the same time. Enclose your card with each bill you pay. Each time you buy something (even at the drugstore) leave your card and say something simple like "I design Internet websites if you have any questions about how you can make money on the Internet please call me". Put the cards on community bulletin boards. When you attend trade shows drop your card in EVERY box - yes you will get put on lots of mailing lists, but you'll also receive some business too - you'd be surprised. Give a card to the gas station attendant, grocery store clerk, video store worker, hostess at a restaurant when you give your name for a seat reservation. If you overhear a conversation about your industry say "I'm sorry but I couldn't help overhear part of your conversation if you ever need more information on the topic, here's my card". Offer to speak at your school's career day and give each student a card - they do have parents who may need what you have to offer. Leave some cards with your stationery store manager - very often they get requests from small business people for different kinds of help - if you leave your cards you'll be first on the list to be called. If you ever go anywhere there is entertainment leave your card with the entertainer - and tell them how much you've enjoyed their performance. While some of the ideas above may seem "silly" you won't know until you try if they'll work for you - and all of the people listed above may not want what you're offering BUT they all have family, friends and co-workers who just might.
