4 Tips to Increase Your Company’s Traffic This Year

Written by Small Business Magazine on June 19th, 2018. Posted in Uncategorized

It’s time to improve your daily traffic. No matter what kind of business you’re running or industry you’re in, there are always going to be foolproof ways to get more bodies into your store, subsequently increasing your chance of earning higher revenues.

Here are some great tips for increasing your physical traffic on a daily basis:

  • Have high-quality custom banners setup out front – Having quality signs out front of a business make your establishment so much more welcoming. In fact, half of all consumers who enter businesses actually did so (the first time) because of signage.
  • Redesign your company’s website – In order to increase physical traffic, you’re going to need to increase your digital traffic as well. If your website still looks like it was designed in 2003, you should probably have it updated. You can do research online to figure out how to redesign your site or outsource for professional assistance.
  • Schedule special events and offers – If you advertise special occasions and events, people will be much more likely to step into your store. People love new things, giveaways, grand openings, fundraisers, and special events of all kind, so start promoting a few of these occasions with banners out front and watch your traffic increase.
  • Focus on customer service – Since word of mouth is so important, you want to make sure every customer who enters your establishment leaves in a good mood. If there is a problem and a customer leaves unhappy, they’ll likely start spreading negative reviews about your company and your brand will suffer as a result. Do everything you can to ensure that each customer interaction is as positive as can be.

Good luck this quarter and the rest of the year increasing your daily traffic. Even getting one or two more people in your store each day could result in much higher revenues for your company — so never stop trying! If you want to find high quality custom banners for sale, give Buy Green Signs a call today and check out some great signage.

Three Things Small Business Magazines Offer

Small business magazine

When you are a small business, there are many things you need to keep in mind about optimizing your company performance. Many experts recommend reading a small business magazine in order to keep yourself informed about the latest trends in the business world, and so that you are aware of how different government tax and employee policies will affect you. What are some things you might find out about if you pick up small business magazines?

First, search engine optimization is one way small businesses are getting in on a larger online market. Search engine optimization, or SEO, involves the creation of quality content usually in the form of blurbs, articles, and blogs, that appear on or off the website and contain a suitable percentage of keywords and phrases. Many companies now invest in SEO as a way to increase their search engine rankings, considering how important rankings are to web visibility. People often use search engines to find local services, and the majority of people never scroll past the first page of results.

Second, many small businesses are concerned with how the new health care laws will affect their business. Businesses with more than 50 employees, less than 50 employees, and less than 25 employees all have different regulation rules to play by. Small business magazines say that it is a good idea to understand the specifics of the laws that will affect your business as a result of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise you risk being found in violation of the law, and you can be fined.

Third, many businesses are learning to cut back on unnecessary expenditures in order to keep overhead low and profits high. Small business magazines report that many companies are outsourcing labor that is traditionally done in office, such as receptionists, office help, and online marketing. This is especially useful for businesses who do not wish to keep set hours, or who do not experience enough desk or phone traffic to make it worthwhile to hire a receptionist who only has a few hours of actual work.

The expedited shipping service industry is an integral part of many industries.

Machinery, electronics, and motorized vehicles are the three most valuable commodities moved by the U.S. freight transportation system. Even a single drive on an interstate in the middle of the country, you cannot help but notice that this industry is a part of our everyday life. As you drive toward your family vacation destination, you pass a long haul truck transporting a part of an enormous turbine win

If you are reading this, then you have been there. You have finished up school, and for one of many reasons (being a leader rather than a follower, following the beat of your own drum, being too unique for the rat race), you opted to start your own small business. First off, congratulations. This country was built on the backs of small business, and small business is what keeps it healthy in an increasingly global economy. The question, then, is how do you take your small business and make it truly thrive?

Often, running a small business can be very isolating. You may think that you are the first one to encounter some of the problems your business is facing. You should never stand alone, and there are a variety of resources, such as business magazines (including specifically small business magazines) that can guide you as you build your business from a budding dream to a flourishing reality.

There are many potential resources for your business in a small business magazine. Perhaps most useful are the columns. If you know where to look, you can find a column on just about any topic, ranging from supply side issues, shipping tips and tricks, economic theory and how to utilize the digital world in the best way for your business.

The articles in small business magazines are also useful. Perhaps you have not yet started your small business, and are looking for ideas. These magazines often feature stories of up and coming entrepreneurs and how they turned a simple idea into a going concern. Some articles focus on youthful business owners, teenagers who are already millionaires. Other articles look at career changers, who went from the cubicle to the chief executive officers desk by harnessing an idea. Regardless of where you are in your life or career, small business magazines contain articles with stories from which you can gain knowledge and (perhaps most importantly) inspiration.

Small business magazines have adapted to the world that business owners live in. No longer do you actually need a physical magazine gain the benefits I mentioned earlier. The vast majority of small business magazines have Apps for all of your business gadgets. Whether you are sitting in your office or sitting in first class on an international flight, you can easily consult these now digitally portable mines of business acumen.

Small business magazines are also remarkably inexpensive, particularly when contrasted with all of the nuggets of business knowledge they provide. As such, do not fail to make use of these valuable resources. Other small business owners and entrepreneurs are out there, dealing with the same problems with their businesses that you have with yours. They have developed potential solutions to the problems your business has (or may have). Being educated does not always require four years of school and thousands of dollars. Sometimes, the best education has glossy pages and three staples. Take advantage of these resources and watch your business reap the financial rewards.
