You could do a search on Google and find plenty of ideas to market your small business. Or you could keep reading and get three ideas for what you could do today in about 15 minutes.
- Share 3 posts on social media
- Reach out to 5 potential clients
- Create something that uses your talents
Share 3 posts on social media. Pick your platform: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn etc. Find three people within your field and share something they created, giving them full credit. This does two things: it promotes their work (helping them) and it promotes something useful to your audience (helping you).
Next, reach out to 5 potential clients. Write a two-sentence intro and close it with “how can I serve you today?” If they write back, great! Keep the conversation going. If you don’t hear back, try again in a week or two. In the meantime, write to 5 new people tomorrow.
Finally, create something using your talents. Whatever you do, make something. Write a blog, record a podcast, create a video; just do it. Spend 15 to 20 minutes on it and put it out for the world to see what YOU can do. Create an asset that you will benefit from down the road.
Try these out and let me know how they work for you. If you need any ideas, write to me (tell me what you do) and I’ll give you some ideas to start with. Sound good?
