How to grow your small business video

Here is a video we show at Small Business Networking seminars we put on every month in collaboration with our subscribers.

Here is the transcript.

Hello my name is Mike Oliver.  I'm the founder of Explorer 4 and Open for Business Online and I have some tools I want to share with you in the seminar. I'm gonna show you how to grow your small business.  Lets get started. How do you grow your small business? You need more customers right? You have some customers now, they already know you.

Most of the customers probably come from people walking by. If I don’t walk by I won’t know you exist and cannot buy from you.

I can find some businesses by searching the Internet with my smartphone. But if that business is not listed on the Internet you cannot find them.

So what can we do? Let’s see. Hmm, are we having fun yet? You can take advantage of the World Wide Web to reach all around the world. You just get a domain name and create a website! It just takes a bit of programming, graphic design and knowledge, oh and don't forget hosting and maintenance and monitoring.

Okay what else can you do to grow your small business? How about business networking? In Business Networking you bring together a bunch of business owners and you get to know each other. The more people that know you the more business you’ll get. After you connect with other business owners their customers may ask about your kind of business and get a referral. They will give you more business. Your customer is happy to find a fish store and your new friend is happy to have a new customer. Simply put, business networking is the lowest-cost way to grow your business!

How else can you grow your small business? Have you got one of these (smartphone) How about all those smart phone users. They're everywhere wherever you go you can be with them. They just go to the Google map application and search for what you want. It will list all of those around you that match.

I love Mexican food. If I'm in Makati and I search for a Mexican food Google maps will show me all of the Mexican restaurants that they've listed. You know what all the Mexican restaurants in Makati  don't show on this map? The reason they don't show is that whoever put them on the Internet didn't do it properly. We know how to do that.

What else can you do to grow your small business. Social media like Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn are all factors in getting the word out. If you don't know how to do all of these things who's gonna help you? Explore 4 and Open 4 Business Online, that two. In fact, you've already started the business networking. It is going on right now. We can do all these things for you.

  3. I've been speaking to people, and I don't know if it's because we're in the first quarter of a new year or if there's more confidence in the economy, but I've realized that many more people are looking to start their own businesses. As a business owner and social entrepreneur, I think that's a great thing. I'm often asked about my thoughts about starting a new venture, and candidly, I love the adrenaline rush, vision driving and strategy development of a new business opportunity.
