Community Involvement Tools From Your Tampa Freelance Writer

All of your electronic marketing is underway. You’ve enlisted the professional skills of a professional Tampa freelance copywriter to write web content, custom blogs, your LinkedIn pages, YouTube scripts and more for your business.

Now it’s time to take your marketing campaign directly to the people by getting out of the office and into the community to make the people aware of your new business and how you can help them.

It is time to meet new people and establish new networks to expand the potential of generating new business. It is important to listen, learn and remember facts about those you meet for future reference and to pinpoint common bonds you may share with them. One tip to remember who’s who is to maintain a detailed client database which can be very valuable in maintaining long-term relationships.

There is no substitute for a good reputation. You know who you are, what kind of person you are, what you are capable of and how your business can assist people in your community, but what is the best way to let others know this important information and earn their business?

By establishing your reputation in their minds before you talk business through becoming involved in your community.

Sign Up, Take Part and Market Yourself

There are many ways to become involved in your community, thereby building relationships and name recognition. By joining and participating in area clubs, organizations, sports teams, etc., that follow your interests, you are taking an important step toward establishing your reputation as an asset to your community. You’re also helping your community at the same time. A win-win.

But before rushing out and joining every club and organization in town it is very important to realistically consider the areas in which you are most interested. Beyond the demands on your time that extracurricular activities can create is the sincerity other members of the organization should feel about your true motivation to join their group. If they think you joined just to sell your services to them you may eliminate any chance of future business (unless it’s a leads-type club, etc.).

Think creatively about your opportunities in your community. Service clubs offer high visibility but may have specific membership requirements. Civic groups, such as community volunteers for local arts or community clean-up, are available.

Other groups include sports teams (either playing, coaching or volunteering to help), fund raising efforts for charity, the PTA and religious groups. Use your imagination and find organizations that interest you.

Make the Personal Connection

There is no substitute for a good reputation and it’s up to you to prove to others who you are, what kind of person you are and what you are capable of. Pressing the flesh and making personal connections is one of the strongest, longest lasting marketing tools at your disposal and you are establishing your reputation in hearts and minds before you talk business.
