#8 – Volunteer Your Services or Products to a Non-Profit: If you have a favorite cause, contact the local office of organizations involved with it to see how your business could help out. If your company is product-based, you may be able to donate an item to a silent auction or other fundraiser. If you offer services, see if the organization itself could benefit. For example, if you’re a graphic designer, offer to update some of their marketing materials. This not only allows you to give back but could also lead to a good press opportunity.
#19 – Say Thank You: Send tokens of appreciation to previous clients or to those who have purchased a certain amount of your products. This act of gratitude could help you get considered when the client has another business need. Think about what your customers would really appreciate and cater to that, such as a handwritten thank you note, a gift card, or a buy one get one free coupon.
#40 – Print Calendars: Mail them to your clients at the end of the year, and ask to leave them in local stores. Make sure to include your contact information, including web site address. Potential customers will see your business info every time they check the date.
