Post your five best marketing tips. We need everyone's participation.

1. Hand out business cards
2. Have a sharp looking website (yours or your companies)
3. Incentivize purchases (specials, featured products, home parties) Something to get people to order (or sign up now)
4. Get yourself organized. (This is my weak point) I lose sales for not having quick follow through sometimes.
5. Offer your opportunity (product to everyone) (you never know who is interested)

Good post Patty!

Let's see:

1. Word of mouth-tell people you know that you have a business, not so that they will buy from you, but so that they will tell their friends!
2. Have a siggy in your email with a link to your site.
3. Send business cards out with your orders so that your customers can give them to their friends.
4. Post on message boards that let you have a link in your siggy (ie Justmommies!).
5. READ THIS EBOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I am a huge fan of it, can you tell?)

1. Get your product in front of as many people as possible. Set up at fairs even if you can't sell at them. It's great publicity.

2. Always carry a product with you / use your product. Be your best customer.

3. Get to know people. They are more likely to buy from someone they know and trust.

4. Put an ad on your vehicle.

5. Wear company attire or badge.

KC, a couple of ?'s for you. How has having the ad on your car worked so far? Where did you have it made? I think I might do that eventually...

Oh and then I wanted to say great ideas. I def like the one about using your product. I use my seat covers always at the store and always have biz cards with me!

Mine are pretty much the same as everyone else.

1. I dress Ben in "my mommy works at home" t-shirts, with my website on them.
2. I will be doing at least 2..hopefully 4 craft shows this year.
3. Always carry business cards!

I am also thinking about getting the car banner, but 6 x 36 looks sooo big! I think I may break down and get it anyway! I love the pic of yours kc!
