A MEME is a simple way to communicate an idea. For small business, it could be a visual sign, a verbal sign, or an action. Examples are the Green Giant, the Michelin Man, the Marlboro Cowboy Pillsbury Doughboy, Energizer Bunny, and Aunt Jemima. Note: there are not necessarily logos. Theme Lines can come from memes. For example, “You’re in Good Hands with Allstate.” “In the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant.” Businesses should be run for the convenience of the customer. The most valuable marketing for small businesses is word of mouth. Fusion marketing is when two or more small businesses advertise for each other. One says they will put your ad on their website if you will do the same for theirs. Or you will put their business cards on your tables if they will do the same for yours.

Direct selling Convenience trumps quality. We are not always going somewhere because it is the best. We often go somewhere because of the location. You can pay an analyst to tell you whether or not your location would be beneficial. On N. Main, there was a Wendy’s, a Bank and a Kroger. They would often get held up and robbed. Area in town talked “Scary Normal”. Instead of paying analysts, go into local businesses in the area that you are looking into. Don’t ask sales people, since they will tell you what you want to hear so they can sell it. Aroma Therapy Businesses fill store with a scent that will make people more willing to buy/shop. Ex. Lexus dealers have their stores smell of Chocolate Chip Cookies, since people are more likely to buy cars when smelling Chocolate Chip Cookies (who knew!) Closing Remarks: When we come back after Spring Break, we will be forming project groups, where we will have the opportunity to adopt a small business that currently exists. rd Exam is Thursday, March 3 , 2016.
