If You Have 5 MINUTES to Spare!

The staff at Graphically Deb is as diverse as we can be. We each have interests in many projects and activities with our own unique perspective on how things might work. That is a wonderful Think Tank recipe. It works well for us, and for our customers. One thing we all agree on is -- the importance of Marketing & Advertising.

It's the one thing our customers often push back on. We get it... because marketing and advertising is OUR PASSION, not necessarily the customers.

💥This is IMPORTANT! When you had the first idea that moved you toward building your business, you probably thought about some Great Service that you did, or Products that you loved or built, or Skill that other people needed. There is probably a large investment to get where you are, it costs a lot to get those things into your business space.. perhaps it was Retail Stock Items, maybe you invested in Talent to provide the Services you Know Are Needed, maybe you bought Equipment to Build and Manufacture items for wholesale? What ever it is.. it is part of your Dream but, the most important piece of success is USERS!




Example #1: I just found out, one of my favorite restaurants has a Drive Thru-- for over a year! I had NO IDEA!!

I mentioned staff projects, I am lead admin on a community Facebook Group that has over 6,500 members. The restaurant I mentioned, is in that area. Our Group members; often ask for recommendations, includes drivers for pick up and delivery services, and does not allow members to make negative comments about businesses (there are pretty good standards for a business to be looking for). I often pick up posts I stumble on and share them to that large group of perfectly targeted customers, and share, because I know that the group is always hungry for info about local businesses. But I didn't share this (because I didn't know), and neither did the restaurant. That is a lot of FREE EXPOSURE to a prime audience that takes a very small amount of time and effort. What business doesn't ever have some down time???





The restaurant I am talking about has expressed an uncommon situation in that-- they don't want to grow any further. They are comfortable, making money, and understand that growth will require additional staff, square feet, wait time for customers, and extra food items, which are not shelf stable. If you are in that situation, then don't worry about it. When staff leaves, or a change happens in the market, you can think about it then. For the rest of you, including Graphically Deb...

...I often see people that use the downtime to check their phone, take an extra break, talk sadly about "How Dead it Is!" We encourage you to Use that Downtime!
