Today those who are starting up a new business online or brick and mortar use the social media to get customers. I thought it interesting to build up ways to gain new business by using links that usually work. Try some of these link ideas for your business

How to find customers in your area

Today it is very important for local business owners to get links to other websites in their areas. This is one of the best ways to get new customers. Many times a local business uses the links to find customers that they can email or send out mailings to contact perspective customers in the area. You will find many cross references to the same customers but there are businesses that will help you filter out the duplicates so you can keep an updated list of clients. It is important that you use a data base system that will mark your duplications if you are not going to use a company that will do that for you. The list should be kept updated in order to save you time and money. The following strategies help you get local links.

Use the above links to grown your business

The above list will give you access to just about everyone who lives in your city and the surrounding areas. The link building strategies only work if you keep them updated. This takes a lot of work on your part but a good data entry system and data entry clerk can cut down on your work. You will be able to keep your mailings to a minimum using email for a lot of your notifications and advertisement. Most people prefer email however there is still a multitude of people who do not use the internet. You find that it is to your advantage to still use mail outs to contact some people in your community.
Once you have gotten your links then you can make a strategic plan of action where you contact some clients on a regular weekly basis keeping them updated via email. Some of your clients you will only want to contact on a monthly basis via email. Then there are those clients that you can only reach by regular mail. These clients might need more than one mailing a month if you have coupons or special offers. Use your links to clients wisely for great results with a happy ending for business success.


Business success today depends on the strategy used to get links from other websites that will make it possible to get new clients. It is a different type of method because of social media. Many people work from their website instead of using mail outs and the newspaper. Today it is possible to send out different coupons, advertisements, invitations etc. through the email. It is not only quicker but cheaper. The bulk mail outs are expensive because you have to create, copy, make mail out labels and pay for postage. Today a person can create a flyer and send via email in bulk form. Local link building strategies might be time consuming in the start but it pays off time and again for the business owner.
