How to Make My Business Grow

Making more money requires work.

Made available by
Every business can have a better earning potential, but you have to do the work in order to see results. How many businesses are there in your area that are in the same line of work as yours? If there is more competition, you will have to use a nontraditional approach to get noticed. Some ways include advertising, word of mouth, expanding to the Internet and networking. With a little guidance and a self-starter attitude, you can get your business noticed, which will enable you to expand.

    How to Make My Business Grow

  1. Step 1
    Contact old and new business associates and friends via mail, email or phone to let them know what your business has to offer. Once they are aware, they will be more likely to recommend you to other people since they know you.

  2. Step 2
    Research your line of business online. Find out what the various websites for these businesses look like, and develop one for your business that is more user-friendly. Your website address should be on all business cards, letterheads and invoices. If you are Internet challenged, pay someone to set up the website or create a simple one using GoDaddy.

  3. Step 3
    Create fliers advertising your business, and post them in local coffee shops and cafes. Make sure you speak to the owner for approval, because this will give you some extra exposure and show that you're professional.

  4. Step 4
    Promote your business online by posting comments on forums and even create a profile on popular social networking sites such as MySpace, Twitter and Facebook. Comment on articles related to your line of work, and suggest your business as a solution. Also, write up short press releases, and submit them to online directories.

  5. Step 5
    Work with local businesses that relate to your business. For example, if you own a hair salon, ask local bridal shops to keep your brochure/flier on their counter and do the same for them. This is an easy way to reach your target audience and promote any specials or discounts your business is offering. In addition, it supports your local economy.
