Get involved in speaking engagements

A good way to establish your authority and reputation as a business leader is to speak at industry events or get featured by reputed publications. Though it may be challenging to find time for such activities when you’re working at higher positions in the organization, if you make an effort to be “seen” at a few high-profile industry events, it will be well worth your time. You could also target local media channels and even the radio!

Ensure your business cards reach the right people

LinkedIn and Angel aside, often, a physical business card can add immensely to your market presence. So go the extra mile to ensure the right people at every chance see your brand name. Not just when visiting clients at industry events, ensure to leave your business cards at other promising venues as well. For instance, ask the people in your organization to pin them on the bulletin boards of the different offices, eateries, and other businesses they visit.

Have you considered free giveaways?

Agreed, you can’t do this everyday, but at least on certain pre-decided occasions like contests or trade fairs or fests, try distributing your company’s products for free. You could opt for donating them as prizes to get that extra spotlight! You could even consider free-of-cost disbursement of merchandise printed with your organization’s name to generate brand awareness and goodwill.

Get your company events featured

Even though people love reading success stories over the web, photographs still make for the most widely used marketing tactic. So whenever you engage in speaking engagements, free giveaways, or community activities, make sure you share the photos of your involvement not just on social media, but in local newspapers as well. This can go a long way in making people familiar with your brand name.
