effectively. I have come up with 8 ways to do just that all low

1. If you work outside of the home as many of us do as well as
running a home business, you can post your business cards or
flyers on your company bulletin board where company news is
displayed. You should check with your Human Resources department
first before tacking your information on the board, most HR
Departments require you to check with them first.

particular are the best way to market your business. Before
handing out the order you have collected put together a flyer or
business card pack that explains briefly what you do, how you can
be reached. Make sure you have a packet tacked, stapled or placed
in a bag on each order.
3. Most of us have answering machines or voice mail, what
could be a better way then to market yourself than to have a
brief message as part of your greeting with your website address
or email address so people calling can learn more about your
business. Add a little twist to your greeting by changing it once
a week or when you have discounts, special promotions or
discontinued products or services.
