  • Anon 7:21 that is ignorant. Everyone has to start somewhere. Juvy13 - you don't say what your business and so I don't know how relevant this will be. Make sure you get a nametag that says what you do, and where is everywhere. Business cards are essential. Vistaprint.com offers you free ones. You company may also. Hand out two at a time, say "one for you and one for a friend". A yard sign is a good idea if you live in the suburbs. Message me if you need some more ideas.
