Do You Have the Right Materials for a Successful Word-of-Mouth Campaign?

In order to run a successful word-of-mouth campaign, you need to build an arsenal of credibility-enhancing materials.  You should always have these at your disposal to make the most of every networking opportunity.

Below is a checklist of items you may already have available or wish to begin assembling, which can be used as collateral materials in developing your desired image.  These are not ranked in a particular; they are all key components of the toolkit of a successful word-of-mouth campaign.

Note: Please keep in mind that this is not a complete list of items needed to market your business.  The items in this list are focused on enhancing your networking activities which will lead to greater word of mouth and referrals.

For the sake of space,  I didn’t go into much detail here regarding each of the items in this list but I can certainly go into plenty more of an explanation as to what these items entail.

I’ll leave it up to all of you blog readers to weigh in on whether or not you’d like to see a follow up blog explaining each of the items listed above . . . so, leave a comment and let me know–should I write a blog giving the details regarding these items?  Thumbs up, or thumbs down?? . . . Thanks!

  1. The Word-of-Mouth Campaign outline is very helpful. Doing a follow-up blog on each of the items is a great idea, and perfect for BNI educations spots at weekly meetings.

  2. The list is really good information. I’ll be googling some of the items, but I know I would like to see a follow up article (or series of articles) on this topic!


  3. This is a really useful list, especially as not all of the items are obvious ones – I really like the idea of having the logos of key customers, and the articles on trends affecting our markets.
