One of the best ways to market yourself is by providing a free give-away to potential clients (and even current clients).
When you can provide a free item that is actually valuable to the end-user you have the best of both worlds.
The hard part is finding a product that fits the bill. You need one that is cheap to purchase yet valuable to the end-user. At the end of the day you must be able to AFFORD the product you are giving away.
Jon-Don Custom Label Program
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll recognize the name Jon-Don, as they are a company that I freely recommend for those that need carpet cleaning and janitorial products and equipment.
One of the cool things that this company offers is the ability to have various size bottles of specialized solutions plastered with your company name, phone number and even a coupon in some cases.
I made use of this program by purchasing cases of carpet spotting solution with my company information on it. These cases have 24 bottles inside and make for an awesome give-away. Currently a case is only $31.00 (shipping can even be free in certain circumstances).
This works out to only $1.29 per bottle, which is PERFECT for a free give-away. I would keep a case in my vehicle so that I could give them away. If I went on a bid, I brought a bottle with me. If I met someone on the street who inquired about my service I gave them a bottle.
In short, I gave them out whenever I could. Once someone became a customer of mine, I told them if they ever ran out, simply call me and I’ll deliver another one for free. This would help KEEP THEM as a long-term client. My customers loved this product, and loved ME for giving it to them!
