  • There are many ways to go. If you are looking at internet options there are Free & Paid Ads, Ad Exchanges, Site Trafficers, And plan ol' networking. Where you just chat with people looking for options. Remember that your business isn't going to be for most, and that you hve to work hard to find the 1% that it is right for. So don't give up just because you can 't find people right away. The more you work the better you'll do.

    Also, Send me a message. I have a site where I help others get some ad time, but I only do one person per company so let me know who you're with. Here's the site

  • I have some articles which might help you do this.  There is one about How to Promote and Advertise your Product, and one that is How to Find FREE Advertising For Your Website.  They can all apply to any business.

    You can check them out in my Journal here at Cafemom:

  • The best form of advertising is word of mouth. That is how MonaVie is built. Sharing the product with friends and family. Keep talking to people you come across on a day to day. You can advertised as well on cafemom and other free sites, but the number 1 is word of mouth. Good luck.

  • The simple answer is networking. Start by writing down the name of everyone you know: the people on your block, friends, relatives, your book club, the entire PTA, etc.. This is your current network. Contact everyone in your network, and let them know what you are doing and why you are doing it. Now join networking groups appropriate to your products and your target market; this may be your state chamber of commerce; this may be a lead-sharing club; this may be a business person's breakfast club; your local chapter of Toastmasters; etc.
    There is a wonderful book called The Accidental Salesperson by Chris Lyttle; you should be able to find it at your local library.
