  • Do you have a Web site? Put a link in your signature line so it appears on all of your outgoing messages. You can do this within most e-mail programs.

  • I am doing that already. I also have it set up here people can text my code to a certain 5-digit number and get in contact with me, fb fanpage, twitter and tossing older brochures. But from there I am running out of ideas

  • Meeting people is free. Wearing a T-shirt with your logo on it is free. You could get a car decal or magnet very cheap on Vista Print.

  • Create a free blog on Blogger. Use social media to post updates on new products or info on products. Get out and meet people. Meetup.com social groups are a good way to meet people. Magnet car decal is also worth it.

  • What are you selling? Look for events where you can pass out business cards or samples.

  • For Avon, bridal shows are an option. Does Avon still publish its catalog? I used to get those and actually bought that way a few times, but haven't seen a catalog in many years.

  • gdiamante---they still publish the catalogs. We have not only cosmetics but also still have fragrances, shoes, clothes, kids items, and more. Check out my website hon and let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

  • Craft fairs/expos and things like that. Definitely get a car decal. I have a huge one on my car for my business and it attracts a lot of attention. Always wear clothing that represents your business.
