Small Business Owner Advice from the Scooter Maven the DJ at the Crepe Maker

My friend another small business much like MRP, asked me how she could help bring people into the store. Yesterday I started my volunteering as the new DJ in the window at the Crepe Maker in Coral Gables Florida.

So I thought this would be a great chance to help a friend plus a good story for the small business blog 
This is much like selling scooters, you need the pink scooter in the window. How do you get your clients attention when there are 1,000 food choices on the street. Lights! Music! Fun! 

As a small business scooter shops have to do whatever it takes to bring in cashflow. 

I eat dinner at the Crepe Maker at least once a week, but how does the average passerby know how good the food is? They don't! You have to tell them, show them, give out samples, and make it the coolest corner on the strip.

What brings in a crowd? Sometimes its a good spokesperson, model, or some young girls. 88% of the walks ins to scooter stores are guys. Women are a growing segment, but it never hurts to have ladies to hand out flyers or do co-marketing with another local business.

So if you have a plastic surgeon around the block from his office, have him put some of his work on display at your motorcycle store. It will get attention.

Stay tuned to our blog for more ideas on how to run a better shop, be it a Scooter store or even in this case a Crepe Maker. 

Stop by and visit Dory tell her you came because of the Scooter Maven.

Since January 2008 MRP has expanded by acquiring 10 closed US scooter parts distributors who have left the American market.
