  • You can put up an advertisement at the BX or C-Store. You can also advertise in your base paper pretty cheap. What kind of candles are you selling?

  • Hi I sell candles by Scentsy. Instead of burning them you use candle warmers, and plug-ins and the bars last a very long time. I have gotten a lot of great comments and reviews about the products. I just really would like some ideas on how to promote the business to bring in more revenue. Here is my website if you want to see everything I am selling, Thanks for your advice! or

  • scent samples and catalogs help. has awesome ways to grab a potential distributors attention. There is a link to enter for free pack here

    If there is a way to welcome the new wifes on base, you can give them a small candle and a catalog as a welcome gift.. Let them know that you can take care of all thier home scent needs.
