Offering services is a great way to increase your internet income. Many social situations are great opportunities for networking and finding new clients. Here are a few home business supplies that no business should be without.
Communication through Print Supplies
Some small business owners or freelancers have a hard time pinpointing exactly what they do, in thirty seconds or less. I read a book once that talked about practicing your elevator speech. Simply practice saying exactly what you do and have to offer in thirty seconds or less. Memorizing this statement is the key to effectively communicate what you do. But is that statement alone enough?
It may open a conversation with an interested person, or keep you image in their mind when the problem you solve comes up. Most businesses, contract services, and consultants are simply paid to solve a problem or provide something. The need for it may not be immediate.
Handing someone a flyer that explains in detail everything about the business can be referred to at a later date, and even passed along to one of their friends.
Businesses that provide a service inside of the home may benefit from street traffic. Examples are beauty salons run out of converted rooms in the home, direct sales businesses, home daycare centers, and computer repair. The sign can give the desired method of making contact, and even have a display for people to take flyers.
Magnet printings for personal car magnets are a great way to be seen. Many people would love to work with someone in their neighborhood or with a business they see once or each week while they are out the grocery, in traffic, or out shopping. Many supportive friends or families will have no problem putting the magnets on their cars to help out.
If you make instructional dvds or cds never send them in a blank case. Including a printed sleeve that directs them to sign up for a newsletter or send them to the main products page of your website. This one step can help you keep a customer that may be truly enjoying the product.
Business cards are easy to always have on hand. Writing down business information is not professional. Those small scraps of paper are often thrown away, even if the note resulted in a sale or a that person receiving a service. When it is time to patronize the business again or refer your services to a friend they do not have a business card to refer back to.
