    SHOP LOCAL BUSINESS SEMINAR

    Sponsored by the Giddings Area Chamber of Commerce

    The Voice of Business

    Miracles on Main ™

    BARBARA WOLD

    International Business Speaker, Expert and Consultant

     

    The Power of Partnerships

    Using Your Neighbors to Grow Your Business

    Today's smart businesses understand that the sharing of ideas and resources among like-minded businesses can lead to new-found success. This seminar will give your attendees the ideas and tools to develop and plan for long-term partnerships that will help grow their business for years to come.

    • Find "Business Buddies"

    • Learn from Case Studies

    • How to start Partnership Roundtable's

    • Discover creative cross-marketing ideas

    The opportunities for these little kinds of partnerships are endless. No matter what city you're in, your business shares customers with other businesses. Discover a business buddy or two, how to pass customers around and keep them spending in your community.

    Getting Your Community to Shop Local

    Businesses and service providers need to understand which kinds of shopper experiences create trust, and what falls short in terms of customer expectations. After this presentation the attendees will be able to examine their physical business environments, product assortments, promotions, associate knowledge, services offered and customer service standards from the perspective of creating trust.

    Businesses must win consumers over and gain their trust by anticipating their behavior, preferences and engaging on the consumers' terms. If they can do this, they have the opportunity to develop a new generation of brand fanatics and harness the influence of today's dynamic and empowered consumer.

    • Customer satisfaction is worthless – customer loyalty is priceless

    • Short-term & long-term strategies for gaining & keeping customers

    • Improve your bottom line --effective customer-driven strategies

    • Prioritize customer experience touch points

    • Turn customers into advocates

    If we think longer term, stay close to our customers, it will be a good tomorrow.

    Fun, interactive programs packed with fresh and easily applicable ideas to put into action immediately. Information to help the attendees create additional and repeat business.
