I was speaking to a shop owner friend the other day and he was complaining that car counts have been declining. I asked him how often he gets out in the community. He told me he is too busy to leave the shop. He comes to work, works all day and goes home. He has been doing this for years.


Then he revealed to me that he does not even know the names of the store owners around him. I said to him, “Don’t you think you should know your neighbors?” After a few seconds of silence, it dawned on him that there are dozens of local businesses, schools, a hospital and shopping centers; all with potential customers.


We get caught up in our own little world. Our shop dominates our existence. We often forget about the potential right around us.


What forms of community based marketing to you engage in?
