Step two! You are now Incorporated had have done your research, so where to now? Marketing and Networking. While getting ready to open a store front, or make your mark on the world with whomever you are, you need to Market and Networking everywhere. Even while you are growing your company’s voice (branding) it is essential that you constantly marketing and networking. There are free avenues to market, while there are also free avenues to network. Take a look around your town, newspapers, listen and take note to events. Go to these events and start working your magic.
Have some business cards around to spread the joy of your company’s name to anyone and everyone. Most of these events are free, though, since you did all your research and know your marketable area, you can concentrate on that. Take time to talk a little with each person there. Make sure you exchange cards with anyone you happen to talk with. Remember their cards as well. Grab and place and follow up no more than 3 days after and just say “Hi, it was nice meeting you the other day. Let’s meet up one day next week.” Then follow up on that too.
You just Marketed and Networked a little. By having your card you have marketed, by being nice and following up, you just networked. It is that easy. The hard part is keeping up with it a little everyday. If at first you are not comfortable with your new way of life working everyday, then work every other day. Or even once a week, just to get your social and business muscles working hard for you! Take note to one other thing, newspapers have free set ups for their calendar. Utilize that, make up event names to help push your company’s voice! I have faith in you!
