Posted by iCarryalls on 9/4/2014 to Business/Workbags

Does your business entail you to constantly travel? Do you live a fast-paced lifestyle that keeps you on the go most of the time? Well, keep in mind that wherever you are and wherever you're headed, there are always opportunities for you to market your business.

Here are some simple tips to help you promote your products and/or services even while on the go:

Tip #1: Always Be Well-dressed

A big part of all sales trainings always deals with power dressing. Not only should you be knowledgeable about the right clothing and accessories to wear, but you ought to apply such learning at all times.

Don't just put on your best marketer outfit when you're meeting a client. Remember that at any time, you may actually come across a potential new client. Hence, you have to look presentable even when you're just going out for an errand.

You have to also make a good impression whenever you're traveling. This is why you've got to invest in high quality leather travel bags and luggage, like what we have in our collection. You need to pile up your power clothes and also invest in a remarkable watch, mobile phone, and other visible material things you might be bringing along with you.

Tip #2: Hand Out Your Business Card

Whether you're waiting at the airport or you're riding the hotel shuttle, there's a chance you might run into a possible business contact. Thus, it's important that you always have a stack of business cards ready and easily accessible.

For instance, you can make use of one of our business tools and gadgets organizers. With these innovative folios, you'll have your important tools in one package, including your cards. They're all ready to be put to use at any time.

Some people think that business cards are totally outdated. But guess what? There are still many entrepreneurs who end up getting new clients because they often hand out these cards to those they meet when they travel. They make it a habit to even attach their cards to documents, bills, brochures, and more which may end up in other people's hands. After all, you never know.

Tip #3: Wear Your Business Logo

When you wear your business logo, make sure to be a bit discreet. You don't want to appear like a walking advertisement, which is bound to drive people away.

Instead, you can settle for a classic polo shirt or for corporate long sleeves with a small yet significant embroidery of your logo. This way, when you converse with someone, they'll catch a glimpse of it and most likely retain the image, especially if you mention your business casually without actually giving a sales pitch.

Moreover, aside from a logo or two on your apparel, you might want to have a custom luggage tag or key chain made. You may want to go for a personalized cellphone case too. These items are usually readily visible and may catch others' attention or be drilled in their minds unconsciously.

Tip #4: Be Friendly And Polite To Everyone

Let's say somebody accidentally bumps into you as you're rushing in the streets. Rather than rambling curses or yelling at the person, you should train yourself to be very patient, friendly, and polite every time. No matter what, it's vital to keep your best foot forward whenever you are dealing with others.

Don't dare make the mistake of letting steam off or showing your negative side, because this will reflect badly on your business. What if the person you encounter is a potential big client? What if there's someone videotaping you and the next thing you know, it goes viral on YouTube? There are numerous conceivable scenarios. This is why you have to be extra careful of your words and actions. Always remember that you represent your business.

Tip #5: Try To Exhibit Your Branding

Many expert marketers will often emphasize the importance of branding and of keeping to it through different media. As you travel, also do your best to exhibit this branding.

Is your fashion company fun and quirky? Then you must dress this way too. Does your business slogan talk about good health? Then you should probably not be caught munching on fries and junk food. Is your home décor business centered on earth tones, with a clear advocacy on eco-friendly materials? Then don't go around smoking.

You probably get the point by now. If you want successful marketing of your business even while on the go, think of yourself as an enormous, live billboard!

Tip #6: Be The Product Of Your Own Product

This statement may be a cliché, but it's very true. Tried and tested for so many years, this tip means that you go beyond just the branding or image of your business. You actually have to prove to people that you're using your products and/or services.

For example, if you are selling beauty products, then your appearance has to show that these products are actually effective on you. Or if you're marketing a particular brand of shoes, then it goes without saying that you have to travel wearing your own shoes.

Take note that visuals are much more powerful than words. When you tell stories about how great your product is, people are not likely to remember. But when you show them or let them experience it, there's a better chance they'll not just recall but want it too.

Tip #7: Show Interest In Others

What kind of conversationalist are you? If you find yourself talking to the person sitting beside you in the plane, are you the one who always shares or do you also ask sincere questions?

When people feel that you are actually interested in them, all the more that they will get drawn to you. Hence, you must practice questioning and also hone your listening skills. Show genuine interest in the person you are speaking to. This will also provide you with information that will allow you to tweak your approach in order to gain his trust and interest him in what you could possibly offer.

Traveling doesn't have to be a waste of precious time. You can make the most of it by marketing your business subtly. Check out our selection of travel items, business organizers, and more. They are all stylish and functional at the same time, as well as durable and classy.

Bear in mind that there are tons of new people you might possibly run into and some of them could be future loyal clients. Some of them may have needs that your business could fulfill. Hence, always be ready.
