Business Juice Boost – How Many Business Cards Did You Collect Today?

Yes, it is great you handed out more than 20 business cards this week, but give yourself a HUGE pat on the back if you collected just as many. Wait, not so fast. What did you do with those business cards? If they are anywhere other than your company database that controls your monthly newsletters and marketing blast, I take the applause back…

Don’t be too hard on yourself though; most business owners do not have an active working database. They too, are leaving money on the table by not securing their potential clients and they leave the door wide open for their competition to scoop in and take their business. 

This month’s Business Juice Boost:

Create a database to nurture your potential clients

  1. Collect as many business cards and contacts as you can. Remember a business card given is permission to contact them. Best business practices for database building are to ensure everyone on the list is there with their permission.
  2. Find a database storage solution that works for your business, sort and get your contacts ready for next month’s Business Juice Boost.

 Business Juice Boosts are quick marketing actions to give your existing business a boost in the right direction toward more profits. Note: One action alone will not make your business a success, but the successful marketing mix, starts with one action, followed by another. Give your business a boost today! (Watch for Angela’s book in 2012 – Your Business on Juice!)
