Business Card Sample
One Powerful Referral Method: When a client expresses that they are happy with my service, I pull out three business cards. On the first one, I write my cell phone number. I tell them specifically that I do not give this number out to everyone but that I want to make sure that their every need is met. Therefore, if they have any questions, they can call me personally. Next, I hand them two more business cards, the backs of which have a space for them to write down the name, email and phone number of a referral.

VOIP, Cut the Phone Bill
One piece of technology that I changed during my 2008 review of business expenses was my phone carrier. I was using one of the big phone companies. We had five phone lines and a fair amount of long distance calls which meant I had a monthly phone bill of $300. Today, I pay less than $100 a month.
