...by using flyers, business cards, catalogs or postcards (biz cards and post cards are free at vistaprint) And getting them out to homes in the area as well as bulletin boards, beauty salons, laundrymats, libraries, dr office waiting rooms, etc. etc. The same can work if you offer a service locally as well as a product you make.
If you make a product, for example, cloth diapers in stylish designs, it's something Moms here on cafemom and many other message groups sites could want to purchase. You can advertise by replying to messages and making a website. Getting a myspace page for the business and linking it in your signatures on groups works well too and is allowable. But posting specific ads on these groups here is not allowed (unless the group is designed for ads)! Craigslist, ebay, Buy & Sell Yahoo groups, craft shows, flea markets are all places you can get products out there!
