5 Holiday Business TIPS to Glue Business Relationships

Tis the season for all you business owners to get creative with an opportunity to build your business! To renew old acquaintances, glue business relationships and celebrate with clients and other business owners that have helped you in business all year! Here are some HOT Holiday Tips:1. Make a List…check it twice! Pull out all of your business cards for the entire year that you have collected. Put it into your database. Be sure to put them in categories…Most important possible client, Maybe’s, Not Likely.2. Make a Newsletter or FUN Holiday Card that you can Email out to your database. You can find a Marketing company that will do this for you, if you have no idea how to put it all together. Getting “one new client” will pay for itself.3. Put a Networking Event together inviting your database and asking them to bring a friend. Find a restaurant that will give you FREE food or use a FREE venue, since they will be getting all the exposure and visibility from your marketing efforts. Have FUN Holiday Networking Games that will help each and every person remember one another. If you have never done this type of event, you can contact Marketing and Event companies that will give you a detail “How To List”.4. Take a picture of yourself and your business and send out a THANK YOU to all those potential and existing clients. If you don’t have time to do this, there is companies out there that will do it for you. Remember…what is your return on the investment? If it costs $200 to have them send it out, if you get “one or two clients from the efforts”, it is well worth the cost. Keeping your name TOMA “Top Of Mind Awareness” will get these new clients5. Have a Deck the Walls party in your office or home. Decorate for the holidays and have a contest! Create a contest, by having all of your clients participate. Get a group together to be the judges, as you go to each of their offices and vote for the best dressed holiday office.The holidays are about “relationships”… LIVE to GIVE. Why not find out what your clients favorite hobbies, habits or interests are, and give them a gift that they will remember. Tickets to a Play, Sporting Event, Free Dinner for Two (you and your client), or a FREE Membership to a Networking Group that they can participate at for the entire New Year. Your potential clients and existing business clients will remember your efforts. You are doing something different than the average Joe! It will pay off!
