Marketing is important to every business. The way you market sometimes needs to be very specific to the type of business you run. Not all marketing champagnes have to include billboards and ads. Getting your name out there by helping your community is a great way to promote your business. We’ve put together a few ideas to get you started.
Sponsor a little league team. Sponsoring a local little league team is great for the community and shows people that you’re involved. It is great for kids and families.
Set up a 5k for charity. Runs are healthy, and they help charities. You can choose any cause that touches your heart and get the whole community involved. The event can be sponsored solely by your business or co-sponsored with other companies. With the right marketing, the event can not only be fun but also make an impact.
Offer a scholarship for a local school. Many cities have nearby colleges or community colleges. Offering a scholarship will help students achieve and let your community know you care.
Set up a meet and greet. A meet and greet can help you and the businesses around you. You can partner with local businesses and set up a community gathering. This helps people get to know businesses in their area while finding opportunities and helps the businesses involved.
Plant trees. It helps your community and the Earth! Let customers purchase “in honor of” plaques or donate and plant trees at your local nursing home.
