November Marketing Days - Opportunity Is Waiting!

Small Business often finds itself wondering what is the path to marketing success.

For most small businesses, competition doesn't only come from those in their same niche. Today most competition comes from businesses outside your niche. Consumers have a limited cash flow and when they spend it on something they won't be spending at your business.

But it's not about competition, it's about opportunity. Every second in every moment presents opportunity to do something new. And each of these opportunities allows you to create a marketing event that will stop your customers in their tracks. Check out the varied list below for a bunch of marketing ideas and themes.


National Sandwich Day - November 3rd

Celebrate National Sandwich Day with an open house at your business. Offer a free sandwich bar to customers. Invite people to try new and delicious sandwiches that they've never tried before.

This is a great attraction for an open house at your brick and mortar location(s). People will stream in to try the sandwich bar and this will give you an opportunity to get to know your customers and potential customers.

Your business may only have one small store or it may have ascended to be a regional or national chain, but the size of your operation doesn't matter when creating an open house. It's the size of your willingness to explore new ways that'll connect with your customers, that matters.
