This can be a perfect way to keep customers up-to-date, so long as your keep these emails attractive and informative.

06. Distribute leaflets, flyers or menus

Directly reach customers through printed material distribution. Use the high street or local events to hand-out flyers to potential customers in person, with the opportunity to give personable chats explaining your product or service. These could even be used in a postal campaign, sent to customer addresses giving updates on your business or with a price list of products/services.

Almost everyone in the UK will listen to the radio, or watch a TV channel today. Get your brand in front of potential customers with a TV or Radio campaign. This is another option which will rely on your customer demographic, understanding which channel or station they would be most likely to access. This can be a more costly platform, but will typically offer a very large reach. There are even local radio stations or region television channels which can narrow the market for you.


08. Engage with an online community

Another free way to promote your business is to join an industry-specific community online. Build a reputation for your business, connect with members and generate a rapport. Customers are more likely to use someone they know & trust. Comment on posts, or offer advise to questions written by members. This helps boost your credibility whilst also expanding your network in the field.
