Tell more people about your business, and therefore sell more, whether you are a ….. Butcher, Baker or Candlestick Maker
Don’t be shy. Be more visible. This applies to any self-employed business/service, such as a beautician, chiropodist, handy-man, gardener, painter/decorator, plasterer, caterer, yoga teacher, tutor, tearoom – the list is endless and growing daily.
Especially in these Coronavirus Covid-19 times, very often enterprising businesses work from, or are at, home providing a fantastic service but it can be hard to get the message out to the locals. The more people you ‘Tell’ the more you can ‘Sell’ yourself.
If you have a great business and people need to know about it, why not give more exposure about:
- your opening hours
- your telephone number and postcode
- the name(s) and photo(s) of your team
- the latest news or events
- special offers
You can do this three ways with Tell More Sell More.
1. Advertise 24×7 in my shop window on the High Street in Crick with huge amounts of passing local traffic, in an A5 frame, including a strapline that sums up who you are.
2. Advertise 24×7 on my website, here at www.No7Crick.com, via the Tell More Sell More Crick Small Business Directory. You can include valuable and comprehensive information and photographs representing you and your business. This option is ideal if you don’t want the hassle of setting up and maintaining your own website.
3. Gain exposure on my Facebook page, A&A @ No.7 Crick, https://www.facebook.com/number7crick Not only does A&A represent Art & Adornments but Ask & Answer for the Crick Business Directory.
The three options above are cheaper than relying on printed advertising in local news publications, that is so last century, and a gamble as to whether a) it gets read b) whether your small advert is spotted or c) if it is binned or composted without a second glance!
There are brilliant small initiatives/businesses, just like yours, that are waiting to be discovered more widely – all you need is more exposure to “tell customers near and far about how good you are”.
“Help me get the word out about what I provide” I hear you say. Tell More Sell More wants to help.
Start with a simple/low monthly cost to advertise both in the shop, and on this www.no7crick.com site as part of the Crick Small Business Directory.
It’s amazing how much extra business can be generated 24/7 from an informative entry on a website or exposure in a shop window – it is working for you whilst you are ‘off duty’ relaxing.
It is the equivalent to continually handing out your business cards in villages, towns and cities.
For information on how I can increase the awareness of your business phone Jeanette on 07932 999192, email [email protected] or visit me at No.7 High Street, Crick, Northamptonshire, NN6 7TS.
I have been living in the village of Crick, Northamptonshire since 2012 and countless times I have been asked for recommendations about local trades and skills. As social media has increased, especially Facebook, I’m continually reading how locals are asking for recommendations for dog walkers, baby sitters, places to eat, carpenters, car mechanics, tearooms the list is endless.
The village is filled with experience but it is hard to easily locate names and contact details – there is the Post Office noticeboard or Facebook, but not everyone is signed up to Facebook’s ‘Crick Noticeboard’ and even then the post giving answers to recommendations is yesterday’s news and lost until the next request is posted.
Your display in my shop window or an entry on this website and Facebook page represents you all hours of the day and night.
