Marketing Tips to start off 2012

Get the New year started off right by offering your customers a new Email or web based News Letter. Where you can offer new products and upcoming sales before you offer them to the general public. Call it “Get a Jump” (pick your own name of course).
Host a weekly Google+ hangout to talk about timely issues and topics in your market.
Review products/services/books you like. This can help your customers to get to know you better. Help build that KLT (Know / Like / Trust factor) into your business.
Speak at your local Chamber of Commerce. Create a PowerPoint presentation to go along with it and then post it on your website.
By the way if you don’t have a website, START one and make it mobile friendly.
Create a video interview series where you chat with influential people in your industry or community and post the videos on your website. I will be starting this one myself this month.
Send out a direct mailing thanking your customers for their patronage in 2011 and sharing what you hope to bring them in 2012. This will help in making sure you’re top of their mind as the New Year hits.
Get other local business owners together and hold a workshop on a hot issue in your town. Or, get together with other business owners in different towns and talk about how any of you have used the Internet / Facebook / Twitter to increase business.
