Our business is one of reputation and referrals. We strive to keep the customers we have, and make new ones. From a marketing perspective, Collab Space is yet another great chance to make new contacts.
How do you get the majority of your leads or clients now? Any tips you can share?
Our customers often seek us out on our website (or the sites of our supplier partners), due to the market being very niche. That said, there are many people who do not yet know of us that could greatly benefit from our service, and thus word of mouth and referrals are invaluable to us.
What is your favorite business-related quote and what does it mean to you?
“Failure is a natural step to success… be sure to keep going until you get there”. It is important not to get too disillusioned after a failure. Skills are learned, not inherent.
