8 Creative Ideas to Promote Your Business

It can be hard to generate new leads and increase sales, that’s where we would like to help.  Below are 8 Creative Ideas to Promote your Business:

Idea #1: Advertise all of Your Social Media Handles

If you really want to pump up your follower account, it’s a good idea to make sure your social media handles are on your email signature, your business cards, your website (all pages), your email blasts and anywhere else you can think of.  You may even want to consider creating specialized business cards with just your handles on them to hand out at different events.

Idea #2: Creating Infographics is Great Information For Viewers

Since people who view social media and websites love visual content, creating Infographics is a great way to drive traffic to your social media and website. Try using the templates on Canva, they are easy to customize and brand.

Idea #3: Hashtag-ify your contest and all of your social media and posts

Always add relevant and unique hashtags to your social media posts.  They are great to be able to keep track of which posts are doing well and hashtags also help you turn up in top searches.

Idea #4: Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Interviews

Blog posts that feature industry leaders or popular or local bloggers are a wonderful way to build traffic to your social media pages and your websites.

Idea #5: Try Different Contests

People love winning free items, so trying different contests on your social media pages and website is an awesome way to build brand recognition, followers, website traffic, and potential new clients.  Try to ensure the prize they win is branded with your companies logo.

Idea #6: Offer Rewards for Sharing

Try coming up with a good referral program.  For instance, if your followers share your post, they will get 5% off their next purchase or if you are referred some business that turns into a sale, offer 10% to the person who referred you (meaning they would get 10% of what your fee is).

Idea #7: Commission a Mural on the Side of Building

This is a great idea for a marketing campaign, and if you use a local artist you will also have the benefit of helping your community as well.

Idea #8: Post Deals to Deal Sites

People love deals, so try to come up with a service or product that you can offer a good deal and/or discount on and post it to the various deal sites that are out there (like Groupon or Slickdeals).
