Times are changing; there are so many ways to let someone know you are thinking of them. This Mother’s Day, try sending a special tweet.
Good Wishes – For ALL Mothers
On Mother’s Day we always remember to wish our own mothers a “Happy Mother’s Day” but tend to forget the rest of the mothers out there. This year remember to send out a good wish for all the mothers around us, Grandmothers, friends and even colleagues.
A mother’s job is never done; every day is a new adventure or challenge. Whether it’s your career, home, or you children (child) life can be hectic and stressful. Remember this Mother’s Day…breathe deep and take some time for yourself to relax and unwind. For some it can be as simple as 15 minutes in a comfy chair or it could be a day at the spa.
Unfortunately not all of us are able to see our mothers on Mother’s Day, but the good news is that when it isn’t necessary to purchase prior to this very special day, don’t. All those “gifty” ideas are usually less expensive after Mother’s Day, if you can, keep more money in your pocket and purchase after. Remember, your mother doesn’t care how much you’ve spent on her gift.
Happy Mother’s Day!
“Referrals! Referrals! Referrals!”
Don’t be afraid to ask for referrals. When building your business the rule of thumb is “word of mouth” and there is no harm in asking a satisfied client, a friend or colleague to assist in the growth of your business. According to the New York Times, 65% of new business comes from referrals.
“Join Forces “
Stay on the lookout for a product or service that compliments your own, it benefits both businesses involved and significantly increases sales. For example, if your business is a residential cleaning company it would work to everyone’s advantage to connect with a residential carpet cleaning company or if you sell health products perhaps consider joining forces with a personal trainer or a gym.
“In a Package”
When you can sell one, why not try for two..or even three? Instead of only offering one, package multiple products or services therefor increasing the size of each sale. Searching and signing new clients or customers can sometimes be a lengthy process, so by grouping or “packaging” with one client you’ve increased your sale and profit.
