The service we have. and continue to receive. from both Chris and Diane. is exceptional to say the least. Chris has gone the extra mile on more occasions than I can easily name to be sure we are satisfied with his service. Diane takes our many questions in stride, and always provides exactly what we are looking for. even when we aren\'t even sure what it is. After a thorough review of the available companies and copiers. and several interviews and presentations, it was decided to go with Yuma Office Equipment, utilizing the State of Arizona Contract. Since we made the switch in copiers. we are experiencing no errors in billing and great service. Before the change, it was a monthly issue. with lost invoices and late charges. Service was slow and at times. did not handle the problem. With the new contracts. we can bill everything to a Purchasing Card which also gives us the option to split out the individual charges to multiple accounts. We are a very large organization. with many campuses. spread out from San Luis to Parker; Chris has never once indicated that the immense amount of time and travel required of him in the set up and continued handling of the accounts was any kind of issue. He is an amazing representative to work with, and we count ourselves lucky to have him handling our accounts.

One of the simplest ways to spread the word and expose potential customers to your product or service is by giving some of it away. It’s a way of coercing someone to sample what you are offering without any risk. Once they try it and see there is value in it for them—i.e., they like your product or service—they’re more likely to pay for it in the future. Consumers enjoy finding new businesses to patronize, and who doesn’t love free stuff?!
The Yellow Pages used to provide small businesses with a way to be listed in directories where they could be found by consumers in need of what they were selling. Local directories still exist; they just do so online. Yelp, Google Places, Yahoo Local, and Bing Places are just a handful of the options businesses have to list themselves locally these days. They enable your company to be found with an online search, and the free cost makes utilizing them a no-brainer.
While it may be perhaps the oldest form of marketing for businesses, word-of-mouth still works wonders. Ask your existing clients or customers to spread the word about your business. A satisfied consumer is a powerful advocate for your product or service, and they usually are willing to refer your business to their friends and family after a positive experience.
