So hopefully as you previously discovered in part one of this ongoing series, the right type of small business marketing tips, can and most definitely will, help you grow your business and or service.
Without spending the proverbial fortune, on dismally performing, outrageously expensive, traditional advertising campaigns.
Remember, any novice and or aspiring or cash strapped, and resourced challenged entrepreneur, can waste a ton of money on non productive, traditional advertising campaigns.
And these often, dismally performing, glitzy ad campaigns, can quickly drain your bank account, to the point where, you may not even be able to afford, to initially test, some possible marketing alternatives.
This is no way to try and run and or grow your business and or service, correct?

Quickly picking up where part one left off. Let’s say after several months, your exotic beverage distribution business,now has at least three, local, non directly competing businesses, who are officially cross promotional partners.
And they agree to allow your business to set up a demonstration booth inside their shop, and offer their customers or clients, free large sample cups, of some of your most popular beverages.
And you’ll do so, at least once every other week, both during the brutally hot summer, and bitterly cold winter months.
In exchange for this rather exclusive insider access, you agree to provide the owners of these businesses and or services, with monthly free, 10 lb. bags of the exotic beverages of their choice.

On certain days of the gear, like Mothers, Valentines and or National Secretaries day etc.

Plus, you’ll also provide these potential first time customers, with some extremely time sensitive, first time customer only discount coupons.
