18 Ways to Create Opportunities

You want to grow your business, but how?  How do you promote yourself and what you do?

At a recent Mastermind Meeting, for one of our newer students we made a list of ways to create opportunities – some take your time, some take your money.  Which do you have more of?  And maybe that changes.  Here are some things we came up with.

  1. your website. Do you have one? You should.
  2. social media – Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in. How are you connected?
  3. blog – pretty big time commitment. Do you have the time?
  4. email signature – great place to describe what you do or add links to your sites
  5. business cards – get them and hand them out!
  6. bandit signs – know your local laws before you put them out
  7. post-it notes – requires going door-to-door
  8. flyers – inexpensive and easy to distribute
  9. postcards – more expensive but more targeted
  10. handwritten letters
  11. craigslist
  12. networking – in person, not just online
  13. newsletters – create your own or write for neighborhood papers
  14. magnetic car signs
  15. vinyl letters or wrap your vehicle
  16. door knocking – may need solicitors license
  17. google places – great place to advertise
  18. HOA newsletters / websites

What can you add to our list?

I do or have done all and can honestly say that most work except print, at least for me.  There was once a time when print was all you needed, but now I feel as if stuff like postcards just are not worth the trouble.

That's so interesting.  For us, postcards are working great because we like to target specific neighborhoods.  But other print, I agree.  We have not used newspapers in years!

Back again, fascinated by the post-it notes.  I guess they're big, like the UPS ones?  Do you have them custom printed?  Who does that?  Thanks for the information!
