  • Here are some cheap and free advertising places from a post on the Mommy Movers and Shakers group-

    BuySell.com, Craigslist, My Town Ads, Penny Saver USA, The Recycler, Thrifty Nickel

  • Not to be mean, but you need to work on your spelling and grammar because if someone sees you're spelling things incorrectly they're going to be turned off by your business. Just my opinion.

  • Contact the Chamber of Commerce or Small Business Administration they offer free seminars about this topic in question.

  • All I know is Craig's list but of course use common sense... I do flyers, local papers, advertise in places where people are going to look like the laundry mat and the grocery store. also get business cards made up and toss them around to people...for instance my dh was in line at a store and the guy behind him said he had quite a tan for this area and my husband said he just finished a roof and that opened the doors to this guy needing a roof done and his neighbor does too. my exbf is also a contractor and he goes into business's and hands out his cards to cashiers and store owners just on a whim. you have to have that charm and ability to be around people, have people skills. also word of mouth and building reputation

  • Well you ask where you can spread the word ONLINE that's free. Do you have a facebook account? Personal and for the business? Do both if you haven't and then friend everyone you can think of. Same with twitter. On Twitter you get a decent amount of people who will return a "follow"! Everyday I follow 50-75 more people and roughly 30-50 follow back!

    You can also start a blog and then join sites for sharing and voting for blogs to help get followers. You can also "brand yourself" and create a youtube channel and create videos talking about the products, give reviews, testimonials, talk about how to grow your business with the company, etc. etc
