  • Actually I just finished up my new website: The Ad on the Wall.   You can advertise for as long as you want for just $5.00 per site.  It's a great new idea!

  • First answer - there is a special place on clubmom to advertise, so don't do it here LOL.

    Would be good to know the type of business to know where to advertise - can support charity events and get your name out, flyers on people's doors, signage, twitter, LinkedIn, lots of cheap options.

  • Networking is huge. In my area there is a Group that meets different locations to meet / greet and exchange possible contacts, leads to other networking opportunities. Look to see if your city or county has an active Chamber of Commerce Business Network. Also, belief it or not Facebook, newspaper ad but be timely...i.e. Christmas is coming so include that in the Ad if you are selling a product. Do home sale promotions - get a friend to have you over invite others. And the old door to door Business cold calling never hurts. best of Luck .... courageous to start own business good for you.

  • Well first it's important to determine who your target market is so you can narrow down when and what to do. But there are a number of things you can do from free ads and a car magnet with a domain name website to putting business cards in goody bags for halloween, you just need to be creative and think about doing things other people aren't as likely to do so you stand out from the crowd.

  • Set up a Merchant Circle page, a Facebook page and a Twitter page. Set up a LinkedIn profile, join groups and network. Write a blog if you can. The ways you advertise beyond that will be determined by your business. You can do cold calling or visiting businesses. You should have business cards, brochures and other marketing materials. You might want to try direct mail.
