Local businesses showed-off their products and services at the annual Statesville Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, held Thursday at the Civic Center.
WSIC asked exhibitors how they turn passers-by into customers.
(AUDIO). “Give-aways for oil changes and other things and we get their information so we can put them in our database and maybe call them and e-mail them. We also give them our promotional items and just tell them about our business and what we have to offer.”

It wasn’t just businesses. Michael Hotze is with Iredell County Parks and Rec.
(AUDIO). “We just like to actually … (start up) a conversation about what we have to offer, kind of see what they’re looking for. We also like to give away cool stuff like frisbees, so, you know anything fun and enticing can kind of bring those people in.”
