What do you do to get the work out about your business?
What works and what is just a waste of time?

I found that joining the local Chamber of Commerce has been good for me. That may not be everyone else's experience, but our Chamber is very helpful here in Silverton.
They have a large event called "Girl's Nite Out" each year in April, and that has been a great way to network with lots of ladies in the area.

Also, going to Chamber functions keeps you around other adults, which can be a challenge at times if your kids are young and not in school during the day. You might even find ways to network with other business owners to promote both businesses - I have worked with a hair salon in the area to promote Arbonne's holiday products last year during the Christmas season. I am planning to talk to a local store that specializes in chocolates about teaming up to offer Valentine's Day specials next month.

Other than that, just staying active with school committees, sports team parents, etc.

I am a part of several networking groups. I am actually an Area Coordinator for The Heart Link Network which means I am the one who runs the one in our zip code. That has been incredible for my business. I find that my product creates such a buzz I really don't have to do much other than talk about it a little as the other networking groups. Sometimes I am amazed because that has not been my experience before.

I also use Facebook & Twitter as well as blogging. The Facebook especially has helped with my warm market.

I have started trying a few Expos. I think you have to be careful with those though because they can be a waste of time & money.

Other than that just staying active in the community.
