Empower Your Employees

TIP OF THE WEEK

 

Encourage your employees to brag about you as the Company of Choice. Give your employees total permission to promote your company. Help them to appreciate the value of powerful marketing and promotion. Discuss new promotional ideas with them and get their feedback. Explain your marketing strategies to them so that they feel involved in the process. Give permission to your vendors and trade partners to boast about your company as well. Reassure your employees, vendors and trade partners that when everyone promotes your company, everyone earns more money.
