Top Dog?

February 25, 2013

best of

In the super modern, high tech marketplace of 2013, small businesses, with their puny advertising budgets and low-key “brand presence”, need all the help they can get in wooing customers.

There’s a few small (and some free) things that you can do that could have a dramatic effect in ensuring the long term health of you favorite shops:

1) Bring cash.Β  Credit card fees are BRUTAL!Β  3% may not sound like much, but if your profit margin is 10% or less it’s huge.

2) Write a review on Google, Yelp, etc.Β  It’s difficult to over exaggerate the effect a good (or bad) review can have on walk-in traffic.

3) Vote for your favorites in the Independent’s Best of the Triangle contest: http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/BestoftheTriangle/Page
