Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a start-up, an established small business, or if you’re thinking about venturing out on your own, growing your business and increasing revenue are key benchmarks every business owner seeks out.

What do you want people to think and say about you and your company? What makes your company stand out from the rest? What’s your niche? What need do you fulfill? That is your company identity.
Company identity and brand can be communicated through your website, logo and other promotional company information, as well as the quality of products or services you provide. And a well-designed, cohesive identity can help establish your business.
Steve Jobs once said that good design captures the essence of a product or company, and then expresses that essence in outer layers. Do your website and logo and other marketing pieces communicate that powerful message?
A blend of online strategies and print materials are essential to getting your company name out there.
Once you’ve built a solid website, know that it’s simply not enough to launch a site and hope that people will see it. Implement Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies that will drive traffic to your website.
When people Google, looking for a company with products or services that you provide, you want your company name to appear toward the top of that list. Grow My Small Business can help you create your ideal key-word list and help you create an effective back-end description.
When people visit your site, capture your visitors’ contact info, and build your contact database. Express Email Marketing by GMSB is one of GSMB’s simple, but Powerful Tools to capture information so that you can contact your target market on a consistent basis.
Blogging, articles, getting your link on other websites and other strategies can maximize exposure and get more viewers to your site. Reach out to your viewers by social media as well. Find out which social media platforms are best for your audience. Once you do, you can attract followers who will then share your news feeds.
Even in this world of all things digital, some professional-looking printed materials are essential and useful in marketing your company. You’d be surprised at how many entrepreneurs have no printed materials. A tangible piece – perhaps distributed as a direct mail campaign or simply used as handouts at a productive meeting – will leave that little extra impression. Building on your logo and web site, have some brochures, postcards, and of course business cards professionally designed and create a cohesive look for your company.
Put in place a few basics to keep everything organized, so that you can continue focus on growing your business.
Build your brand identity and professionally communicate with customers with business class email displaying your domain name.

An online calendar will help you keep track of your deadlines, meetings and other important dates and make it compatible with your business class email.
For peace of mind, consider a secure backup system, outside of your home desktop or laptop. Storing data on a cloud allows you to access your information from any computer with just an Internet connection and offers an additional measure of security.
For the old-school customers who still use a fax machine, consider setting up a fax system in which you receive faxes via email. Except, you will not need another dinosaur piece of equipment taking up space in your office. When a person sends you a fax, you will receive a scanned document by email, saving you a lot of paper.
