The internet has completely and totally transformed the world of business in ways that most of us couldn’t have ever expected, anticipated, or are even able to fully appreciate right now – in large part because the internet continues to change the world of business on an almost minute by minute basis!
Never before has every business – large or small – had the opportunity to market and sell products as well as services to customers all over the world. Businesses built in the back of someone’s bedroom have gone down to make millions and even hundreds of millions (or, like Facebook and other technology startups, hundreds of billions), something that just wasn’t ever possible before.
At the same time, not everyone is taking full advantage of all the opportunity and all the leverage available to build and grow your home business OFFLINE. The internet might have transformed the business, but since everyone is pouring online you have unique opportunities you don’t want to miss off-line.
If you’re looking for some tips and tricks that can help you kick things into high gear when it comes to marketing, you’ve come to the right place!
Business cards are still important
Business cards are an incredibly important part of building your home business off-line you need to give your business cards a bit of a modern facelift to make them a powerful part of your business building repertoire.
Today, business cards need to have your critical contact information, but they also should have some kind of USP (Unique Selling Position) that differentiates you from the rest of your competitors as well. Premium business cards are less expensive today than ever before so you can increase the quality of your card without spending a small fortune, though you’ll want to invest in quality graphic design to get the kind of credibility you are looking for.
Networking is a big piece of the puzzle
Networking is going to give you a unique opportunity to meet people that may not only become customers and clients, but it also gives you an opportunity to meet like-minded entrepreneurs, marketers, and home business owners that you can learn from, bounce ideas off of, and help to grow right alongside you.
Networking is a powerful form of off-line marketing that can help you grow and build your business a lot faster than you would have been able to otherwise. In business, sometimes it’s not just what you know but WHO you know.
Press releases and direct mail
As our email inboxes and social media feeds become overcrowded and cluttered our traditional mailboxes – the ones that used to be stuffed with all kinds of “junk mail” and advertisements – are becoming less and less so.
This gives you a unique opportunity to capitalize on more traditional or “legacy” marketing (like press releases and direct mail, for example) in a space that is a lot less crowded as well as a space that is paid attention to buy the overwhelming majority of the population.
It’s easy to ignore an email that you don’t want to read – it is a lot harder to ignore a press release or a physical letter/mailing piece that has been delivered to you.
