I was reading on some offline marketing strategies and I had a realization... Though we all run an online business, we are still part of our community of local business owners. Online marketers need to embrace this community network and possibly do partnerships with other local business owners to promote their services as an attempt to utilize a new customer base. I have been doing online customer support for 7 years, and I was wondering, are there local business owners out there that have a web presence and offer their services online? If so, do they need help with there customer base online? Is there a possibility here to share my services with local business owners to also help them stream line their online sector? Also as a side note, imagine the potential list building that could occur in fresh markets. What are your thoughts on this approach? Any input recommendations or hesitations about this technique? Have any of you tried to utilize local business owners and their customer base? What were the results.
