Profits on Wheels

You’d like to see your courier service grow fast. Here are six insider secrets that get your courier service growing faster than you ever thought possible.

1. Press release

Write a press release about your business. A press release lets people know just what your business can do for them. Talk about the services you offer, and why your business is the one everyone should call. Share any success stories, and the things that separate your courier service from the rest. Next, send this press release to your local newspaper. You might have to make a follow-up call, but you could soon have an article written about you and your business. A positive article in the newspaper will bring a lot of attention and free publicity for your business.

2. Custom notepads

Custom notepads are a fun and easy way to advertise. Hand them out to prospective and current customers. Everyone needs a notepad. It’s the perfect place to write down a grocery list, a to-do list, a phone number you don’t want to forget and various thoughts and ideas. Put your business’s name and contact information at the top. Every time someone uses your notepad, they’ll be reminded of your business, and you’ll be the first one they call when they need a courier service.

3. Web site or blog

A web site or blog is a great way to make your business look good. A well-designed web site will help establish trust and respectability to your business. On the web site or blog, mention what services you offer, what your rates are and how you can be contacted. Share any success stories or pictures. Like a press release, talk about what makes your business the only courier service people should call.

4. Networking

You need to get out there and talk up your business. Let people know about your service. Talk to bankers, lawyers, architects, medical professionals and more. Talk to anyone and everyone that could use a courier service. Make it a point to meet people. Networking is an important way for any business to grow.

5. Magnetic signs

Magnetic signs are another fun way to advertise. You can buy one for around $60 from Vistaprint.com. You put the signs on the side of your car, and your car becomes a 24-hour-a-day advertisement for your business. As you drive around town transporting items, people will see you in action, and see your business’s name as you drive by. It’s a great advertisement that is very affordable.

6. Do great work

Sounds obvious, but it’s simply the best way to see your business grow fast. Do a really great job. Go the extra mile, and then keep on going. You will make mistakes. Try to fix them the best you can. Learn from your mistakes. And above all, just keep doing a great job. Soon enough word will spread about your business, and you will become the one to call.

You can help your courier business grow fast by writing a press release, handing out custom notepads, putting a magnetic sign on the side of your car, networking with any and all people, putting together a web site or blog and above all, just doing a great job. Soon enough your business will be growing faster than you thought possible. To learn more, read How to Start a Courier Business.
