Great advice, Corrie. We oftentimes overlook or discount “offline” opportunities to introduce ourselves and our business to others. We all have to buy groceries and visit the bank and pump gas, etc. Why not make these prime time occasions to leave a business card or flyer with the people you do business with in your community?!

Now there’s some awesome advice which no one ever tells you!

They are all so logical when you think about it like that.

Though, do you have any tips about how to talk to somebody in line? I mean, I’m probably more shy than a japanese school girl, so talking to someone I don’t know in line while waiting to pay for groceries …. eh, yeah….. I’m sweating just thinking about it!

Any tips on that?

Melanie – when a business is run online a lot of people forget about offline marketing. It should be done both ways for any type of business.

Piotr – talking to someone in the store can be difficult if you’re a shy person. I’ll write a post later this week that will help you get through this process.

I have a blast when I am out in my community. That is because my heart is to help my local community grow. I have made one active website for a local business and three others are looking at my offers for them. Right now I am adding content to the active one to make it complete.
When I talk with people it is always about how what I can do to solve problems they have in their own lives. I like how Pastor Joe Magee sees it: “We are s’posed to be out there fixin’ things”

Tony – that is awesome. Working at home with local businesses is a great way to reach new levels of success and help others that are local. It’s also a great way to get your name out there.
