Sponsor Community Goodwill After The Grand Opening

Put Structure to your Marketing

Each year, community organizers struggle to produce public events and this is a golden opportunity for a new business to provide Goodwill to a community by sponsoring entertainment.

Sponsoring entertainment allows a new business to get their name out to the community through the event marketing. Events usually have a website, fliers, and brochures that are distributed throughout the community and, for a fraction of the cost, your business information can be distributed to thousands of residents.

How to sponsor entertainment or activity

  • Call the Mayor’s office, police department, library, and park district and ask them for groups that have public events. Let them know you are looking to sponsor entertainment or an event, or to contribute to a community cause.
  • Set a budget that you want to spend and remember this is a goodwill gesture to the community and this is a long-term investment in the community.
  • Research producers that will provide quality entertainment that you can submit to the event committees and can brand your product into the production of the show.
  • Reach out to your network of business associates, and bring in a proposal to the event committee that is complete, thorough, and is fully funded.

Things you should include when dealing with entertainment

  • Entertainment should acknowledge you onstage as a sponsor
  • Sponsor logo should be visible onstage
  • Entertainer should promote the sponsor to its fan base

Building a relationship with the community, other local businesses, and in the political environment will help a new business grow in areas that you never imagined were possible.

A Viral Video Drives Customers To Your Grand Opening

Viral Video Generates Business

Viral video can give your business the jump start it needs in this competitive world we live in. It is hard to generate publicity special for a grand opening.  Just telling people that you have a new store or service does not  mean they are moved to become promoters and share the information.

What you want to do is create a video or slide presentation that drives them to your Facebook fan page.  Convert these people into excited fans.   Once they become a fan, you can provide them with your store grand opening activities.  Explain to them why your business is better, more efficient, convert these people into loyal customers.  Tell these people how your business helps the community and encourage them to share the information.

This is free advertising.

Do you realize, that if your family shares your viral video, it can reach hundreds if not thousands of people, in just a couple days.

Have a contest among employees to see on whom can create a video that goes viral.  Set some guidelines about how they represent the company and give an award to the person who gets the most videos.  Just imagine, you have 20 employees working for you and five of them make a video.  You have the potential to communicate thousands of views and you did not do anything but create the contest.

Just recently, a group of entertainer‘s made a friendly wager on who can get the most YouTube video views.  At the end of the video, we are promoting our Facebook fan page.  Hundreds, now moving into the thousands, are seeing these videos, and it only took us a couple hours to do it.

Remember to  promote the viral video on Twitter and LinkedIn. Use all the tools available to you to get the word out about your grand opening.

Here was my submission.  Again, the goal is to draw attention to your business.  Give people a reason to join your Facebook page then once they join start telling them about all the fun and excitement that is happening at your grand opening.

Creating Successful Grand Opening Flyers

grand-opening-flyer Grand opening flyers have been used to generate excitement along with a flood of traffic to a new business for decades now. You have the ability of spreading the word about your products and services to each household in your community in a relatively short period of time. However, there are critical steps you need to take when advertising grand opening flyers. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Branding

There has been many times where I seen a new business trying to advertise their grand opening flyers using some lame “copy shop” type of printing method. Not only does this portray you as being cheap, your potential customers will wonder how the quality of the product or service will be when they make their first purchase. Remember, when you advertise your selling your brand. Take the time to hire a professional graphic designer. Create a logo that separates you from the competition. After all, you deserve a better flyer than one that has been printed on bright orange paper with no graphic images of your gorgeous products.

Consistency

You have weeks to celebrate the grand opening of your business. Take advantage of the once in a lifetime opportunity and advertise your flyers each week for as long as you are legally permitted to do so. There is a reason behind this strategy. Consumers have no idea who you are or what you have to offer. In addition, you are trying to convince then to choose your new products and services over your competitors. It will take a while before people are convinced enough to take you up on your offer. Think about this when your estimating the budget for your grand opening flyers.

Background

You are the new business on the block. No one knows what your specialty is, who you are, or where you come from. People like to buy from people they know and trust. Leave some space in your grand opening flyer to talk about your self. Are you from the city or state you are conducting business. What type of skills do you have that make you better than the competition? Talk about these things in your message to give people a brief introduction and don’t be scared to show a picture of your gorgeous face somewhere in the flyer. Remember, people respond to faces.

These are the basic elements you need to know when creating grand opening flyers. Keep it simple by hiring professionals to do the job. Not only will you feel better about the image you are creating for your new business. The results will show up in your sales year-after-year. Here’s to the successful launch of your new business!

Google typically scans the Yellow Page to obtain business information. However, Google does allow business owners to enter their business information free of charge using the Google Local Business Center.

All you need to do this is have a Google Account.  Sign in with your username and password and follow the simple instructions to create a listing. You can enter details including business name, address, contact numbers, Web site, e-mail address and a 200-word description of your business.

First then will Google publish your business information on all the company’s relevant applications once verified. Google claims the entire process should take “a few weeks”.

If you need to edit your business listing, simply use the editing tools inside the Google Business Center. The edited information is only displayed after the verification process is completed. Every time you change your business listing, Google will need to verify it before displaying the new changes.

Once listed in the Google directory, customers will be able to get directions to and from your business along with searching for nearby points of interest (POIs).  Included is the capability to view your business using Google Street View along with adding comments and reviews, which in turn helps generate a Web presents. Business owners can use Google Local Business Center to contact customers with Google profiles, which allows businesses to contact these individuals to ask follow up questions or request feedback on services or sales.

Grand Opening Sales

Make the Grand Opening Sale Special

No matter if this is your first or your 100th store grand opening; people will expert some type of sale.  In fact most store grand openings use sales as a tool to lure in customers, but be creative in your sales marketing and reap profit and create loyal customers.

Many businesses try to discount the entire store thinking this will give them the greatest

exposure and the largest variety of customers.  This works great if you’re a convenience store and not specializing in a horizontal market. If you’re a specialty store, you want to make sure you attract customers who will use the products you’re selling and develop loyal customer base.  Understanding your consumer demographics is as important to your grand opening, as well to the success of your business.

Sale items should be clearly marked and should show savings.  Make it easy for the customer to see the saving you’re offering.  If you offer repair services, show a comparison chart of your rate compared to competitors.

Become creative in your grand opening sales.

  • Offer useful products on sale that will brand a particular product or service to your store. The goal is to generate sales, but also create loyal customer base who will retune for future sales.
  • Offer discounts on multiple product if purchased the day of the grand opening.
  • Offer discounts on related products purchased together – Snow shovel, salt, and door mate reduce greater if purchased together.
  • Offer free assembly or delivery on large ticket items, if purchase at grand opening.

Making your store grand opening profitable is not difficult, it just take serious planning.  The sales planning you do now; will pay off in future sales.

Marketings Greatest Secret

Do you know what the best type of Marketing is for your company?

How about a Yellow Pages advert? Pay per click? Maybe some direct mail followed up a telemarketing campaign?

Well whilst each of these are perfectly valid marketing routes and one’s any forward thinking company should at least test the very best type of marketing for all types of business is the type that is FREE!!!

That’s right Ladies and Gentlemen, if you’re working with a tight marketing budget (or indeed with no set marketing budget at all) then you can now get exposure for your product, service or company in the form of PR (or Public Relations).

For large companies PR is big business. They will think nothing of employing staff with the sole intention of getting the name of their company in the media (be it written press, television, radio or online). And because the PR market is seemingly dominated by the larger companies small companies shy away from using PR in their marketing mix.

If this applies to you then good times could well be ahead as PR is a vital part of the marketing mix for smaller companies in particular as they often don’t have the time or money to spend on often expensive advertising or other marketing.

Successful businesses of all sizes use PR to promote their business, build their reputation and become a recognised expert in their particular field. And the beauty of PR is that everyone is an expert in something. And by passing on your expertise in a particular subject in the right way you become newsworthy.

And that is the real secret when it comes to good PR. It has to be interesting and newsworthy. Nobody cares that you’ve just launched a new website or that Mrs Jones in Accounts has just become a Grandmother for the second time (both subjects I’ve seen in press releases and both subjects I’ve seen in journalist’s bins!!). And if you’ve ever attempted PR only not to have it published then I wouldn’t worry too much about it as you’re amongst the 99% of companies who send out PR that isn’t newsworthy or interesting.

Here are a few words on Why PR is important.

Communication lies at the heart of today’s modern society. Be it on the internet, television, pod casts or whatever medium you choose. And with so many firms competing for the same business as you, how do your customers differentiate between you and your competitors?

The answer lies not particularly in the size of your Yellow Pages advert but how you project yourself and what your firm has to offer.

PR has a huge sway in the minds of consumers as the perceived third party endorsement that comes from editorial coverage can be substantial, maybe even more so than advertising that can cost hundreds or thousands of pounds.

PR done well can result in increased exposure, increased business and increased profits. And if you want your business to be the best it can be then becoming good at PR is something you want to do.

And remember, it’s FREE!!!!
