1. Promotional items – Free giveaways such as pens, calculators, t-shirts, etc. are yet another way to gain exposure. Similar to the cross promotion idea, you can ask to put your promotional items in another company’s place of business and offer the same courtesy to them.
2. Newsletters – You can write regular newsletters and email or mail them to current customers. Provide free information to customers that they can use and they will likely keep coming back. Even better, they’ll tell others or forward your email newsletter to others! You can also offer articles for others’ newsletters. It gives them a break from writing another article and also gives you exposure to a whole new list of clients.
3. Cross promotion – Think about your customers, and the kinds of products/services they are likely to use. Then approach these other businesses and ask them about cross promotion opportunities. You can reach more potential customers who might not otherwise be exposed to your business, and you offer the same to the other business.
