    Have you asked your existing and past client base for referrals? So many people skip this step when looking for new business, and it`s a free and easy way to drum up new clients predisposed to love you.

    I couldn`t agree more. It sounds like you have a bunch of satisfied customers. Being in consistent communication with all of your present and previous customers is good for two things:

    1. You make them aware of new offers/services/promotions that they otherwise would not be aware of. They have chosen you in the past, they will most likely choose you in the future.

    2. You remind them of the good experience they have and motivate them to tell their friends. Maybe there`s even some incentive or reward for them if they make a certain number of referrals. Referrals are great because it`s as if the sale is already done for you.

    Using a CRM makes tracking and communicating with customers a breeze. A good free one is Chili Sales. Google it.

    Many of our designers clients exhibit at local and national home improvement and design shows at convention centers.

    We are doing that too.

    It is only $2-3k but the exposure is massive.

    You also have to sound and look excited about your product. 

    Don't get suckered in by the online ONLY. Diversify by real world tactics.

    If you can't exhibit, go to every show you can and learn from others. Also leave your business cards and freebies.

    Every business has a sales and marketing plan because every business owner knows that without sales they have no business. But if you know that sales are important, why is it that you still feel deep down in your soul that you are wasting money every time ...

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a small home design and remodeling company. My business has been steady for a while, but I`m really looking for more growth. I`ve tried advertising in newspapers, sending out mailings, "warm" calling possible clients, Google, but nothing is really working. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas?

    I`m not so concerned with  online advertising because I`m based in a relatively small market. I would be interested in finding a way to drum up more referrals. I`ve asked my current clients for referrals, but I generally have little response. How can I get more from them?

    When you are looking for increasing your sales and get more ROI, you should look to target the audience at a Global scale, so that whatever % response you get will always be high, since Global audience is high.

    A couple suggestions for you:

    One of the most effective methods for finding home improvement prospects is door-to-door canvassing. Few people like to do it, but if it`s done properly, it can yield far better results than direct mail or cold calling. Pick your neighborhoods strategically. For instance, if you can drive through neighborhoods and find homes having work done, go to the neighbors of that home and the homes across the street. "Herd mentality" sometimes causes consumers to want to keep up with their neighbors, so if Bob down the street is doing this or that to their home, there`s probably someone else on that street that will have an interest in doing some kind of project, too. When all your neighbors are having work done, you want work done, too.

    Do you have your truck / vehicles wrapped with your company name? (not just a sign on your back window or on your truck doors, but your whole vehicle wrapped. If possible, park your vehicle at times in parking lots at busy intersections or other highly visible locations.

    Growth in business is itself a steady process and should start with a little attention to finding new techniques to attract or say bind up customers to you that they cannot think of anyone else when it comes the chance of suggesting someone about home. The promotion of any business is not possible just by only one way of advertisement many more sources have come up that can promote your business.

    You can make the use of social media for approaching your targeted customers. Get an idea about your competitor and try to follow their approach if possible. Be active in social groups and forums.
