Where else can I find new customers?
Advertise online. Advertise
search engines such as Overture, Google or FindWhat. Or advertise
in online yellow
pages or a website specific to your category.
Create your own Web page. High-traffic
websites such as Yahoo or AOL are free and make it easy to do.Learn
Advertise in your local newspaper or yellow
customers who aren't on the Internet.
Get free publicity. Work
with your local newspaper or radio station. Everything you need to
know is in the Publicity Toolkit.
Add your listing info to all your business
a link to your signature at the end of every email you send. Add
your Keen home page address and 1-800-ASK-KEEN (plus your extension) to your business
stationary, business signs and any directories in which your business
is listed. It doesn't cost anything!
What should you tell potential customers?
Your member name. This
is your brand - make sure customers remember it!
Your Keen home page address. If
you don't know what it is, sign in and go to My Account. Look for a link
to your home page under Tools.
Your extension on 1-800-ASK-KEEN. You'll
have a different extension for each listing. If you don't know what
it is, just go to one of your listings and look in the left column.
