You have opened a business, and you got a few customers with a reference or without reference. The owners themselves know that there wouldn’t be a steady footprint of customers in the coming days because there are competitors and they would eat the shares. The majority of business owners faces few common questions such as “How can I have more customers? How can I make my business steady? How can I grow my business to the next level?”. Here, the most important thing is to get the name out there. Either your customer does it for you or you yourself. When you want to do it for yourself, it’s all about marketing & advertising.
