Grow Your Business Overnight for Under $50

May 24, 2012

Cheap marketing that is also effective might seem elusive if you're a small business owner, but the fact is that you can start growing your business overnight for under $50 with business card printing.

Design your business card fast, easy and free

Get started by creating a professional business card design. You can do this in just 15 minutes when you use the PsPrint Design Marketplace, which has thousands of free designs you can customize to your business. Search for the perfect business card template, each professionally designed by graphic designers, and then use the online editing tool to add your own text, photos and other features. Consider adding value to the back of your business card to increase customer retention, brand recognition and direct sales. Ideas include sports schedules, calendars and coupons.

Print your business card cheap

Look for business card printing deals that allow you to maximize your return on investment. At the time of this writing, for example, PsPrint offered a 50 percent discount on business card printing. That means you could print 200 business cards for under $50. Keep an eye out for deals such as this, and you'll be able to make your marketing dollars go farther.

Distribute your business cards

Once your business cards are printed, you have to get them in customers' hands. Place them on counters and tables in areas your target customer base is known to frequent. Look for bulletin boards and business card racks in which your business cards would be a good fit. Get creative and insert your business cards in books your customers read, or tape them on mirrors, doors and other unexpected areas. Of course, always keep several on hand to give to everyone you meet. You never know who might be a customer.

Follow these steps, and for less than $50 you could have your business cards in the hands of 200 potential customers. The best part is that with the right strategy, you can turn that $50 investment into sales worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars - a great step toward growing your business overnight!
