Money saving tips from Deal Jungle

Tweet Away

Leveraging Twitter is just plain smart if you’re a small business on a budget. How else can you reach thousands of customers and prospects with zero advertising costs? We often get asked, “Can Twitter actually be used to bring in leads, opportunities and sales to your small business?” and the answer is YES! We do it and so do our clients, every single day.

Are you serious about growing your business profile on social media? Do you want to take your business to the next level and out do your competition? Many of us realise the potential benefits of using social mediums such as Twitter, however to maximise the returns of using the site ensure you only tweet interesting, shareable content.

Get involved with conversations and freely share things you’ve read and found interesting too. No one cares what you ate for breakfast but they might want to read an article you’ve previously read, found interesting and shared.

By following these tips you will steadily grow your Twitter followers, attract more people to your business and, if relevant, may be able to establish yourselves as experts in your field, and all for free.

Get Out There And Meet People

Whilst dealing over the phone, email, even Twitter has its benefits nothing beats getting out there, meeting people, sharing ideas and talking about your business.

Trade shows and exhibitions are a great way of doing this as you are able to directly interact with a captive audience which you already know has an interest in your field.

There are a wide variety of trade shows out there and so it can pay to be selective, choosing those with the best reputations and audience numbers. In order to save money and maximise your return on investment of attendance look to book space late. Organisers need to sell the space and will be willing to discount should there be some available with the event date looming.

Be savvy, don’t be afraid to negotiate and you could land some prime marketing space for a snip of the advertised price.
