One of the main things you gain to do get more people to come to your business is as easy as Being Remarkable.

Lots of people can talk about being remarkable but it is a lot easier said than done. 

How can your business be remarkable:

  • Hire people for attitude: Don’t hire people based on experience.  Skill can be learned but attitude is engrained in you.
  • Create a healthy work environment: Have a positive work environment where new ideas and excitement are rewarded.
  • Set an Example: It starts with the leader.  If you aren’t willing to be remarkable than is everyone else willing to be?
  • Have Fun: Being remarkable isn’t so much about systems as it is about making it fun.
  • Think Others First: When you start thinking about how to excite people walking in the door you can come up with all kinds of ideas.
  • Go one step further: Just when you think you have done enough go one step further if you want to be remarkable.

This spring our business has worked at being remarkable.  Rainy days have always been kind of a drag for everyone so we wanted to make them fun.  We went out and purchased some umbrellas to keep people dry.  Just having them available for people would have made it a nice gesture.  But we wanted to be memorable and remarkable.  So when people came we ran out to the cars to hold the umbrella for the people as they walked in.  But we didn’t stop there.  We also did it on the way out.  Was this a little out of our comfort zone? Yes.  Was it a lot of fun?  You betcha.  Will people talk?  I am sure they will tell at least ten of their friends.

How are you going to get people to talk today?
