If the first week of this year is an indicator of the level of business we can expect for 2010, then things are definitely looking up here at buzz4biz. We are answering the phone, setting up appointments and establishing relationships that will be long-term. January looks like it will be a good month. Most of these new projects are repeatable so they are not just one-off projects.
It is no surprise to me that the seeds I have been planting for the past several months are now bearing fruit. For my business, as a sole proprietor, the most effective marketing tool proves to be face-to-face networking. I cannot underestimate the added value of an appropriate digital profile that goes a long way to enhance my credibility.
Networking at every possible opportunity will remain my modus operandi for this year.
