Marketing strategies can make all the difference to your home business. If you are seeking to compound the profits of your home business into several home businesses, how you run your first business and how you market your first business could be crucial. This article outlines three easy ways to begin to get the word out about your business. These are not the only ways to get the word out about your business, but they are simple and quick, costing little, and netting you much.
First, use the power of your network! Make a list of all of the people you know. Consider your hairdresser, babysitter, soccer coaches, and anyone else you make come into contact with either through your work and social life, or your children’s, or partner’s. Allow this list to grow and grow. You should know no less than one hundred people. As you run into these people, begin to introduce your business idea casually, and let them know what you are doing.
Second, use the power of the written word. Make up a business card you can begin to hand to your list of people. The card should be eye catching, but concise. Give details of your home business, without going overboard. Give each person you meet your card, and consider writing a short note on the back so they will remember who you are. You may reference the location and date of your meeting.
Third, as you get to know more people, begin to give out multiple cards and ask that they give your cards to others they know. In this way you will be networking with hundreds more people, just in utilizing the people you know! These three easy steps cost little more than the amount you spent on the business cards, but got your name in front of many, many people.
