According to S. Fling, Internet marketing expert, large companies pursue the local market with a passion because they “know that people spend 80% of their income within 20 miles of their home…and that consumers are turning to the Internet to research products and services before they buy." Being on-line can be an excellent customer relations tool.

Imagine it...you run an eye-catching, business-pulling ad in your local newspaper...an interested reader sees your domain name in the print ad and decides to visit you on-line. While they are at your site, they join your e-mail list and subscribe to your content-rich e-newsletter. 

To let them know that they’re subscription has been processed, an automatic responder sends a thank you note from you along with a copy of an information-packed report that your company has prepared for it’s current and prospective customers.

A couple of weeks later, they receive their first copy of your e-newsletter and are excited that someone decided to add value to their life. They can’t wait to do business with you and then they find it, the 15% off coupon that’s an exclusive offer for your e-newsletter subscribers. 

They redeem their coupon in-person, love their purchase and smile when they see another ad on a local cable station. Minutes later they’re at your website buying a gift for a friend...cool.
