The 38 tips you’re about to see are contained in my two e-manuals called, “How Your Business Can Survive And Prosper In A Recession.”

NOTE: I interviewed 38 top experts in business, sales & marketing. Each expert revealed the common mistakes most businesses make, 5-10 methods that they’d use to survive and prosper in a recession, and money-making opportunities available to business owners during this time.

You are about to see just ONE method from each of their interviews. If you would like to see more, then you can go to the site and check out a free preview of two of the interviews or grab both e-manuals for one low price.

Now here is your 27th tip…

(Vol. 2 Tim Knox – Method To Survive & Prosper)

“Implement creative and inexpensive methods of advertising and marketing to increase your customer traffic, like employee referral bonus programs, customer referrals, in store specials, drawings and give-aways, flyers, articles, etc.”

If you let it, a recession can force you to be more creative and strategic in the ways you draw prospects and customers to your business.  It can force you to look for the methods that prove to have maximum results for minimal cost as opposed to just throwing your money at any advertising that you THINK should work.

My challenge to you is to come up with one low cost (or no cost) method that you can use to get prospects and customers to your website (or place of business). Once you come up with this method then begin testing it (and tweaking it) next week. (By the way, if you have trouble thinking of a method, then just use one that Tim listed!)
