THREE WAYS TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS

Small business is the heart and soul of Bennett. We can take a chapter out of the books of knowledge and experience of several longstanding businesses in the Town, and find ways to grow business in Bennett!
 
Adapt New Technology
Small and local businesses must adapt to new technology and marketing strategies in order to remain current. Costs for new technology have become more affordable (due in part by the constant changes in choices).  This technology offers, flexibility, mobility, and contributes to a creative marketing atmosphere of your choice. 
 
Leverage Your Community
Use your community to get conversation flowing about a product or service, and you will be able to build a community of users that can answer customer inquiries on your behalf.  Volunteer, get assigned to a project, support a local agency or school, sponsor a community event, and use your community as a network for business growth.  The best part about it, is that you will feel GREAT having contributed to the Bennett community.
 
Never Skimp on Customer Service
You can't afford to skimp on customer service.  Lead by example and demonstrate exactly how your customer should be treated.  Your product or service may evolve over time as trends change, but if you stay consistent in your service efforts, customers will reward you with their loyalty and become your greatest marketing tool in growing your business.
