5 Ways to Boost Your Marketing Without Leaving Your Desk

Too busy to leave the office this week, but don’t want to lose momentum in your marketing efforts? Try these five quick ways to keep your marketing moving…

  1. Update your social media.

It doesn’t have to be complicated – let people know what you’re up to, what you’re looking forward to, or join in with a popular and/or relevant hashtag. Add a quick image, and you’ve got a simple way of being seen by your customers and contacts.

  1. Ask a customer for a testimonial.

Send a quick email asking a customer for a testimonial which you can then use on literature, your website, social media, etc. It is also a great way of striking up a conversation with someone you may be seeking further business from.

  1. Write an article.

A few paragraphs for your company blog or website are quick and easy to do, especially if you have a topic in mind or question that can be answered. Within thirty minutes, you can continue to position yourself as an expert in your field.

  1. Ask a customer or contact out for lunch, or book to attend a networking event.

Arrange for time away from your desk – get out and get seen!

  1. Recognise an employee.

If you have employees, send them a quick message or speak to them about something positive they’re doing. Recognising what they are doing well is a great and very fast morale booster, which will give them a quick lift in getting you more business and working more effectively.

Grab your coffee and see what you can get done before you’ve finished drinking it!

Time for a coffee?

You may have noticed that this blog has been a little quiet recently…. my apologies! Between a full time job, a toddler, a new baby and life in general, there hasn’t been the time to post as often as I’d like.

With that in mind, I will be uploading a series of short posts over the coming weeks – designed to help you make improvements or changes to your marketing in the time it takes to drink a coffee!

So whether you prefer instant, from a machine, or handmade by your local barista, I hope you’ll be able to use these to make quick and effective changes to your marketing practices. First post coming up later today….
