Here are some smart tips from guerrilla marketing expert Jay Conrad Levinson:

  • Don't just network--build relationships. Send notes to people you've just met indicating you would like to talk again.
  • Make sure your ads answer every consumer's No. 1 question: What's in it for me?
  • Give something to your best customers. Gifts work best as a follow-up to a sale or a referral, on a holiday or for the customer's birthday.
  • Personalize your e-mail marketing messages. And add an easy-response device, such as "To order, fill in the blanks and e-mail back."
  • Are you using the best ways to reach your prospects? A letter followed by a phone call is best. Next best is a referral, then a cold call.
  • Be sure you're communicating with your customers, even when you're not trying to sell them anything. That's how your build effective relationships.
