Whatever business you are in, either online or offline,
you’ve got to constantly generate business/product ideas.
Far too often we see small businesses rush into doing things without planning and preparing. Unfortunately, marketing is a great case in point. Many small businesses set up shop and then hurry to get a brochure made up, develop a web site, and get out and start networking without much planning or preparation. And then they wonder why their results are so poor.
Forget what you know about your business Your goal is to see your Yellow Page display advertisement the way a directory user sees it. You can’t act like you know anything about your enterprise that isn’t there, on the page. Look at your ad without pride or being identified with your operation. If you pretend it’s someone else’s, you can spot the flaws you’d otherwise overlook. Mentally put the competition’s name on your ad. Does what you say apply equally well to them? If it does, you haven’t effectively set yourself apart.
Web Presence gives your business a distince edge over your competitors, especially when you want to expand your current customer base.
