Let Others Jazz Up Your Sales

Think of the vendors and suppliers you employ in your business. Some examples are:
  • Accountant
  • Attorney
  • IT company (people who fix your computer problems)
  • Janitorial company
  • Distributors
  • Parts suppliers
  • Website developer
  • Shipping company
  • Answering service or phone mail provider
  • Office supply provider

All of the businesses above have customer bases of their own. If your vendors enjoy working FOR you they will be more likely to refer you to their customers as well. So keep this in mind when dealing with businesses that you employ:

  • Treat your vendors like you would a customer
  • Pay on time
  • Thank them for the work they do
  • Don't scream and yell when they mess up
  • Remember them at the holidays
  • Refer business to them
