3 Tips For Advertising Your Business While Your Building Is Still Being Built

Construction & Contractors Blog

If your building is still under construction, you are probably anxious and excited about it being completed so that you can open your business. However, you may not have thought much about trying to get others excited, too. It is actually a good idea to start advertising your business now rather than waiting, though. These are a few ways that you can start doing so now, even if construction is still going on.

1. Put Up a Sign at the Building Site

Contact a sign company, such as Inland Petroservice Inc, and consider having a "Coming Soon" sign designed for your business. Add your company name and logo if you have everything worked out -- this is good because it can allow you to go ahead and start establishing your business as a household name. Plus, it'll help prevent all of the questions around the community about the construction that is being done.

2. Create a Website

One of the best ways to start marketing your business now is to create a website. When people see your sign, one of the first things that many of them might do is an online search for your company name. By establishing a website, you can go ahead and answer all of their questions about what your business is and what it will provide for your community. Provide as much information as you can, including the types of products or services that you will be providing and an estimated date for when your business will be open. You don't have to be too exact, but giving people a ballpark estimate -- such as the month or season and year -- can give them an idea of when to check back to see if your business is open.

3. Get Started on Social Media

Building social media profiles on sites like Twitter and Facebook now will give you one less thing to do later, and it can allow you to start building a fan base. You can also use your social media accounts to keep people posted on the progress of your construction and about the things that you will be offering.

You shouldn't wait until construction has been completed before you start advertising your business. Instead, give these three tips a try so that you can start building up a base of customers before you have even opened your doors -- or perhaps even before your doors have been installed!
