Do you want more people to know who you are and what you do in your local community?

In this blog post, I will be sharing six basic ideas of how you can start growing your local presence.

1.) Order and Pass Out Your Business Cards

- A simple and convenient first step to spreading your name. A business card should include your name, title & logo as well as your phone number, email and social media handle. Whenever you meet someone new at a coffee shop or networking event, youʼll have everything you need to stay connected with them moving forward.

2.) Advertise on Billboards

- Capture potential clients or customers attention while they drive around town. Digitalized billboards are becoming quite popular and itʼs a creative, eye catching way to marketing your brand.

3.) Hang up Flyers

- A classic advertising move. Your local, family owned shops and community centers will probably have a community board where you can pin your flyer or poster.

4.) Speak at Local Events

- If you want to quickly increase your credibility, get booked to talk about your area of expertise! I would reach out to your local community center or business alliance to see what opportunities are available. If there arenʼt many, create your own local event!

5.) Run Targeted Facebook Ads

- When setting up your ads, you can get specific with your demographic settings and choose to run your promotion in your local area.

6.) Advertise in Local Media

- Is there a news show specific to your area? How about a radio show, local magazine or newspaper? Reach out for an interview opportunity or the chance to run an ad.
