We all hear about it! People say there’s little sense of community here in Las Vegas. And that sentiment spills over into Las Vegas businesses. But your business doesn’t have to be that way. Work with your local Las Vegas printing company and other businesses to join forces! After all, two heads are better than one… or more heads for that matter.
In today’s economy, Las Vegas businesses need to be creative in their advertising, marketing and promotion efforts to stay afloat. For those businesses that are on skin-tight advertising and marketing budget, or can’t afford quality Las Vegas print services, challenge yourself to try something new. Actively seek out other local businesses where your products and services compliment each other. Then get to work cross-promoting!
If you can assist other business owners in your community, all the while reaping your own rewards through shared marketing and promotion – there’s not a lot of downside. You’ll probably find that this kind of cross-promotion is a great way to generate quality referrals, build your reputation and generate new business.
Consider how many times you’ve personally relied on the referral of a business you work with for other products and services they don’t offer. If you really stop and think about it, it’s quite common. A Las Vegas printing company refers you to a Las Vegas web designer. A real estate agent refers you to a home inspection company. An accountant refers you to a local attorney. Cross-promotional opportunities work and are everywhere!
Look at the bigger picture. Start doing some research on other products and services that people might purchase when also buying from you. Then make a list of other Las Vegas businesses that already have a solid reputation and reach out to them. Review this article with them if you have to! Explain the mutual benefits you’ll both receive by partnering up to cross-promote each other. Propose an ongoing working relationship with your target company.
Once another business has agreed to cross-promote your products and services, work with them to understand what marketing materials they might need from you. What features and benefits are customers looking for when talking to your cross-promotional partner? Then, work with your local Las Vegas printing company to design and print brochures, rack cards, business cards and any other marketing materials you need.
But don’t stop there! Keep going. Continue reaching out to other businesses and looking for opportunities. There are so many different ways to cross-promote your business. Once you know what businesses in your community have to offer, you can refer your clients to them if they express a need for their services and other businesses can do the same for you.
Always strive to break the status quo and think outside the box with your advertising, marketing, promotion and Las Vegas print services. Creativity goes a long way, and when you use your imagination, you’ll find new doors open to you, your business will thrive, and you’ll start building a sense of community – even here in Las Vegas, Nevada!
