Motivating Employee Advocates to Supercharge Your Internet Marketing Efforts

Motivating Employee Advocates to Supercharge Your Internet Marketing EffortsIf you are a local business owner who has employees, and want to get more from your marketing efforts, there are many ways you can get staff to help. In this edition of the SmarterLocal Marketing Podcast, James Martell talks with Scott Gray, a local “Customer Acquisition Specialist”, about “Motivating Employee Advocates to Supercharge Your Internet Marketing Efforts”.

Business owners are super busy with many everyday aspects of their business, but need an online presence. Scott and James brainstorm some ideas where staff can be put to good use with little effort.

Scott says that having an email list, where you have permission to contact them, is a very simple method to promote your business with a promotion or offer to get them back through the door. It is much easier to sell to an existing customer than getting a new one, and James gives real life examples of promotions a local pub uses and the success they have had.

When it comes to motivating employee advocates, it takes no time at all to teach them ways they can interact and promote as part of their duties.

Why is An Email List SO Important
