Organize an Event
Think about a cause that is close to your line of business. It can be a charity event, a sports event or anything that you ca think off that will turn heads and newspapers your way. Sponsor it and don’t be too pushy but let your logo and your company name be visible and clearly responsible for the good deed you are doing. It really doesn’t have to be much, but it will help you build your brand. 2015 will be big on small businesses and local businesses, so make sure you are visible and known in your local area.
Make Excellent Promotional Products
