How do you maintain good cash flow during the slow times?


Cash flow is the key to driving the business in its growth pattern. We usually have good cash flow during our peak seasons, and then the transition periods are kind of “hold on, buckle up and keep saving what we created during our peak period.” So there’s a number of issues...

December 2012, Event Marketing

Back in December 2012, we surveyed contractors on event marketing. Below is the result from one of the questions we asked.

On Average, How Would You Rate The Return On Investment Your Company Sees When It Exhibits At Events?

We wanted to know what type of return contractors were seeing on their event marketing investments and the majority 53% we surveyed said that they typically see a small positive return on investment when marketing at events. For those who find ROI lacking, it’s important to remember that producing a compelling exhibit is only half the equation toward achieving a positive return on investment. The other half is dependent on executing an effective follow-up strategy following an event. You can have the most informative and eye-catching exhibit in the world, but if you cannot convert the leads you generated at the event into paying customers your efforts have been wasted.

The days when you got a referral from over the fence are going by the wayside. Now when people want to know if they can trust your business, they take the word of a stranger on sites like Yelp or Google. These sites can be a huge hurdle to grow your business, because people that write these reviews tend to skew negatively and don’t necessarily accurately reflect the quality of work you provide. Enter RevuKangaroo, a system to help you grow your business by increasing positive reviews on 3rd party review sites including Google, Yelp, the BBB, Angie's List, Facebook and many others.
