  • I don't know what kind of shop you have so this might not be appropriate. Promote and advertise is the answer. Maybe you can find a pizza shop that will allow you to cross advertise. That way you can put flyers on all their orders going out. Offer a discount if people purchase. If you sell women's products target women's groups with a flyer or offer to speak about your services. Put up ads on bulletin boards.

  • What are you doing? Are you networking? Do you attend events and meetings from the local chamber of commerce? Are you a good citizen, attending community meetings (like community policing)? Where are you advertising? Are you helping local schools?
