Any suggestions on how to advertise?

I do in home designer jean parties and its a new company. I want to get my business name out and about and help ladies earn extra income and be able to stay at home with their kids. I love being able to stay at home with my daughter and would love to help others do the same.
Does anyone have any suggestions on online advertising where I can do it cheap or free?
Please let me know
THanks

  • craigslist maybe. Also, Meetup.com - you can ''sponsor'' a group and advertise w/them. I don't know if that is free though.

  • You need to get out and network. Contact everyone you know, and ask them for contact information for everyone they know. Join a lead sharing group.

  • Try setting up a Merchant Circle account. You'll also want to join LinkedIn and network on there. It's a much more effective online site for business networking than Facebook, Twitter or Cafemom. Everyone on there is a career or business person.

  • Hi Get Excited & Stay Excited™! Marketing is actually one of my specialties :0)  I've been working from home/ running my businesses for a long time 8 years.  There is a lot you can do, but the key is to start with one and master it before you move on to the next.  I've helped 1000s on one of my teams of 5000 reps with online marketing training.  I provide free trainings on my blog site: http://kantresesmith.com I am in the middle of preparing a new facebook marketing course that I'll be giving away for free on my blog as well as hosting live webinars training those needing to know more ways to market.  Feel free to connect with me by peeping out my profile here, it'll lead you to all my other networks. Hope this helps! Blessings...
