With the new year fast approaching and the economy still at best uncertain, what’s a Quad Cities business to do to prepare for growth in 2011? That is the million dollar question now isn’t it?
If you are going to be successful in 2011 there are three things that are an absolute must:
1. You are going to have to learn how to mine your current database to create recurring as well as referral business.
2. You are going to have to develop an online strategy that engages both your current clients/customers as well as those who may have a need for your products and services.
3. You are going to have to learn about how social networking should play a major role in your marketing efforts.
With an understanding of these things, you can not only maintain your current level of success but you can grow significantly even in a economy with as many questions as the new year will bring.
