    What is the Best Day to Send a Business Mailshot?

    Sending a Mailshot out on the correct day can make the difference between a successful campaign and a failure.

    Some days of the week are better than others, for example people in a business environment tend to be more busy at

    What is the Best Day to Send a Business Mailshot

    What is the Best Day to Send a Business Mailshot

    the beginning and at the end of a week as they are trying to catch up on or get work finished ready for the weekend.

    If the mailshot is going to someone’s personal home then they are more likely to read it at the weekend as they have more time.

    Business Mailshot.

    • Best day – Wednesday.
    • Second best – Tuesday / Thursday.
    • Avoid Monday and Friday.

    If posting in the UK send out on a Monday.

    Personal Mailshot.

    The best days are a Friday and Saturday.

     

    Time of the Year

    The best time of the year to send a mail shot tend to be mid January to mid June and then mid September to mid November. The reason being that to maximize the chance the right person will see your literature you need to avoid both national and personal holiday periods.

    How to Attract Local Customers to your Business. 

    The internet is a wonderful thing it allows you to speak to and find people, information and businesses from all over the world.
    If you have a business website it’s possible for you to attract a world wide audience, with visitors from all four corners. Which is a fantastic thing, but if you own a small shop in a village or you service a limited area, you don’t want really want to attract visitors from the other side of the planet, as there is very little chance they will spend any money with you. You need to attract local people to your website, shop or service as they are much more likely to spend money with you.

    Below are some of the most effective Strategies for attracting loyal local customers to your business.

    6 Strategies for attracting local customers.

    1) Local Keywords.
    If you have a website you should make sure that it has been “Localised”. I.E. if your business is located in A and you cover B, C and D then you need to mention these areas on your website, they need to be in the Page Title, Body and in the Alt tags on your images.
    If you don’t do this then not only will your potential customers not know if you cover their area but the search engines won’t associate your business\website with your coverage areas..
    2) Local Directories.
    Make sure your business details are entered and correct in any available local printed directories. They are often free or very reasonable and delivered to your target audience in your target areas. It’s worth remembering especially if your business targets older people that they tend to still use directories instead of looking on the internet.
    If they are web based then make sure you supply your website as it will help your search engine rankings.
    3) Google Maps.
    Add your business to Google Maps. It’s totally free, you don’t need a website and it will increase your visibility on Google.
    4) Signs.
    They might sound old fashioned but they are cheap and very effective for attracting passing trade. Swing signs and banners are amongst the best types as you can place them outside your business as direction/location finders but you can also move them around if needed.
    5) Swapping Adverts.
    Speak to other similar businesses about doing an advert swap, if you have a shoe selling business then swap adverts with your local shoe repairer. You could recommend each other verbally and or swap adverts on your literature or website.
    6) Get Involved in Local Events.
    Donating your time, expertise and even your products can not only make you feel good but it can bring in lots of free advertising. Normally when you donate to charities/events etc they will allow you in return to have your name on any brochures, signs and websites. This will not only bring your business to the attention of local people but it will associate your business with giving and make you more attractive.

    Free Business Advertising – 6 Strategies to Help You Attract Customers for Free! 

    In today’s recession hit world every business owner needs to get the most from their advertising strategies and budgets.
    There is nothing wrong with paying for advertising, in fact in most cases it is an essential way of attracting new customers. Whether it is buying space in magazines, getting experts to optimise your website or using Pay Per Click services on the major search engines.

    But business owners should not forget about all the types of free advertising that are available. Free advertising can bring in just as many new customers as paid, often with higher spends and higher loyalty.

    6 Strategies for attracting customers for free.

    1) Word of Mouth.
    Word of Mouth advertising is not only free but it is the most important way to attract new business and customers. As no matter how much money you spend on PR and how high end your advertising medium. People will always trust the opinions and recommendations of their friends and colleagues over any advert. Give your customers incentives (e.g. discounts, money back, free postage or free gifts.) to spread the word.
    2) Google Maps.
    Add your business to Google Maps. It’s totally free, you don’t need a website and it will increase your visibility on Google.
    3) Use Facebook and your Friends.
    Setup a free business Facebook page, and then use your friends to spread the word. Jut think if every one of your friends tells 2 of their friends and each of them tells 2 of their friends, your business could be swamped in no time.
    4) Swapping Adverts.
    Speak to other similar businesses about doing an advert swap, if you have a shoe selling business then swap adverts with your local shoe repairer. You could recommend each other verbally and or swap adverts on your literature or website.
    5) Put your business name and website on your packaging.
    You are already paying for your packaging and shipping; why not gain some free exposure by putting your name and website on the box or packing tape.
    6) Plug your business in online reviews.
    Have a search on the internet for people looking for similar businesses, services or products to yours. Reply to them and subtly recommend yourself. Not only might they buy from your business, but other people searching the internet will find your review.
