Name Recognition: 5 Ways to Get Your Business out There

Name Recognition: 5 Ways to Get Your Business out There
  • Opening Intro -

    When you start a business, it's crucial to have your business's name out there to the public as soon as possible.

    For those who have a lot of competitors also offering the same kind of product or service, this is especially true.


How do you get your company to stand out and truly shine? You need people to know why they need to come to your business over the others. To help your business reach its target audience and leave a lasting impression, you should consider these five tips.

Throw a Party

Whether it’s a grand opening, a remodel, or even just a party, you can have people talking about your business by inviting everyone through your doors. Offer food, prizes, games, music, and a good time, and you can be sure that people are going to show up.

You should also make sure that you have some small party favors with your company’s name on it that they can take with them when they go home. If you make sure they’re thinking about your business after they leave, they’ll think of you later on as well.

Attend Events

Whether your business is product or service based, you should attend festivals, fairs, and conventions where you can show off your company. This will allow you and your employees to get to know your community and industry face to face. Or, at the very least, you can offer a few handouts to event attendees—everyone loves free stuff.

This is another great way to get your name out there. Looks for events that are industry specific. If you show yourself off to people who are already interested in what you’re offering, your conversion rate will likely be higher than if it wasn’t industry specific.

Help Host Community Events

One way that marries advertising and being part of an event is to co-host a marathon, tournament, or another event in your community. The best way to build a solid business is to start at home.

You can give out merchandise with your logo on it, pass out water, provide complementary snacks, or just be there to help supervise the event in general. Getting involved lets the community know you’re there to stay and that you actually care. If your community trusts you, they’re more likely to turn to you when they need your services.


One of the best ways to introduce your business to the market is through audience targeted TV advertising and commercials. Humans are visual creatures, especially when it comes to buying and selling. They want to see what you can offer and how products would improve their own lives.

A well-thought-out commercial can tell your audience everything they need to know about your business and help convince them to give your service a try. If your commercial convinces your audience they’re better off investing in your product or service, they’ll be more likely to sincerely look in to your company

other valuable tips:

Social Media

You should never underestimate the power of the internet and social media. For one, it’s a great place to garner interest and a following for your business. You can directly speak to customers and answer any questions that they may have in a more casual space. This allows you to build trust and display knowledge in your industry while making personal connections with your customers. If your audience feels you are knowledgeable and trustworthy, they’ll turn to you in their time of need.

Name and brand recognition is important to running a successful business. If people can’t find your business, your business won’t grow and continue to help your community. Use these tips to help get your name out there.
