Growing our own business. That's what we're all in the business to do, right?! Obviously! I figured we could have a forum in which we could brainstorm ideas, help each-other out, solve problems, and possibly even network! What I'm interested in doing is promoting myself. Networking. Advertising. Selling in different ways than one would usually do. However, I'm completely new to all of this! I'm used to having a supervisor, a manager, his manager, their manager, and then corporate managers above and beyond. Now? That's all on me - I'm responsible for my sales, my appointments, my customer satisfaction ratings, my growth, etc. etc. First off, a little about me and my own business; I just moved to Orlando, Florida within this last month. I work for a company called Cellular Sales - they are the largest and most profitable Verizon Wireless retailer in the United States, and in my state they actually out-perform Verizon corporate! Previously, everyone were independent contractors within the company. Now, with the massive growth of the company, we are now "employees" - different class, all the same responsibilities. It's 100% commission, I have a set schedule at particular retail stores in which commission from random foot traffic is shared, but everything I bring into the store is obviously my own. So what do you guys think? What are some creative ways to get your name and business out there? To sell in a creative way, and to bring you some more money?
