Web 2.0 Marketing Tip #28: Build Your Reputation with Charities
By Ralf Skirr.
What do you think about your business? Is your business continuously growing? Are you getting more customers? Is the profit you get stable? Well, what do you think about charities?
When it comes to becoming a good businessman, being knowledgeable is good, but having a heart is better.
How to Sincerely Build Your Reputation
If you want your business to flourish and if you sincerely want to help others as well, then you should consider doing regular give-aways or charity events. You can either:
- Give your product to someone who needs it but cannot afford it
- Hold a firesale and give a portion of the proceeds to charity
If you are sincere in sharing your blessings, it will surely come back to you, more than you would have probably expected. As they say, “What goes around comes around,” and when it’s good karma you will get, then why will you avoid doing it? Besides, doing such acts of charity will make you feel good about yourself–you are helping people become better, personally and financially. It will also help demonstrate what kind of person you really are and how well you will treat your customers.
In the eyes of your customers and those you help, your credibility will be boosted and your business will be seen as reputable; it will give you a good social standing. So, why not try doing it today?
