It’s that time of year again. Most of us have already planned a nice summer getaway both from work and from school. When it comes to your business, this is also the perfect time for you to do some networking and have fun at the same time. The best part is doing all these just around the neighborhood!
Here are some ideas for you to consider:
1. What to do where?
Search for various activities such as festivals and summer fairs in your area. Use your AccelerAgent™ Website and email the list of events to your contacts. To get additional contacts, create a simple summer calendar that includes all the events that you found. Walk around your neighborhood and distribute the copies. It’s a great way to reintroduce you as the local expert.
2. Let’s do some BBQ.
Encourage your neighbors to bring their food and grill for a fun BBQ event. Note that you do not need to provide the barbecue for everyone. You can conduct a drawing instead. Prizes may include a new BBQ grill, family tickets to a water park, gift cards, movie tickets and more. Create a lead capture form on your AccelerAgent™ website and tell them to register for the event for a chance to win a prize. Your website automatically adds them into your contact list. Not in the mood for BBQ? How about a yard sale event? This is a great way for everyone to make some extra cash and have fun. Follow the same steps from Tip #2. Don’t forget to include your event on the calendar that you send out. Be creative and have fun!
3. Business for business.
How about those small and usually family-owned businesses? Get your smile ready and start building your pipeline. Get some small jars filled with cookies or candies. Drop one jar on each small business (be sure to get their permission). Do not forget to attach your card on the jar, including your website. Ask if you can leave some of your business cards next to the jar. If you want to go the extra mile, you can come back every month to refill the little jars. It’s a great way to keep in touch!
4. Become an Avon® or Tupperware® Rep… or not.
Remember that person who constantly ask you to buy an Avon, Mary Kay or anything similar? We say find those sales reps and hold a ‘Hosted By’ monthly meeting. Invite your friends and family. Pick your date for hosting. Be sure to have that sign in sheet for the visitors, collect those emails and use your AccelerAgent™ Website to keep in touch!
5. The family that plays together wins together.
Ask each family in the neighborhood to submit their favorite family summer photo to you via email. Make them go to your website to find the best picture winner. Whoever wins gets a prize. Tell them that the complete contest rules are on your website. Create a custom page on your AccelerAgent™ Website for the rules.
