Word of Mouth Goes A Long Way

Have you been networking? We know that is important for small business owners to get out and share their unique story. Some people tell me they go to local coffee shops and hang out (or work). Others join clubs to meet potential clients. I recently heard one expert tell entrepreneurs to attend city council meetings and talk with lawmakers so that you can learn about opportunities. These are great ways to network.

We have to also tell each other about a new business when we hear about it. Word of mouth goes a long way for those just getting started. Of course, social media sites are a must. There are a lot of them, so determine what works best for you.

Get out of the box. Go rogue! (LOL!) Don’t be afraid to try something new. You don’t have to only offer two or three services. Here is my last piece of advice, ask for help. We all need it sometimes and you’d be surprised how many people are willing to lend a helping a hand.
