Promote you business through personal recommendation.
23rd February 2010

The first two weeks of February 2010 played host to thebestof's 14 Days of Love search for the most popular local businesses across Kent and the UK.

Consumers were asked to pledge testimonials for their favourite local firms, and they responded with gusto. Small and medium businesses throughout the country found out just what their customers loved about them, and competition was hot to reach the top of the league tables with testimonials reaching their hundreds in some cases.

You can see on the Love-o-Meter that Canterbuy's favourite business - a strong leader throughout - is Singles Speed Date, followed by Body Active.

We do hope that the exercise has prompted both consumers and companies to be more aware of the benefits personal recommendation can bring them. It could be in terms of new business for the firm, or incentives for the customers to recommend them (sincerely) to others. And it may be up to the business owner to take the lead in this and promote themselves through their own unique ideas or plain cheekiness in asking to be recommended!

If you don't ask, you don't get, and the 14 Days of Love showed that in terms of testimonials, if you do ask - you most certainly get!
