WOW……I own a home based business and its been interesting to find ways to
promote and advertise without overspending. My most effective tool is good ole
fashion word of mouth. Its forced me to think outside of the box when it comes
I’ve been going through a local paper to find information on local networking
groups, also Meetup.com is user friendly and there are many groups that will
surely share your interests….meet people, network, find business, make money.
Thats just one of the ways I’m discovering it does not take a million dollar
budget to effectively advertise your business. Another is flyer’s, for less than
$10.00 I printed 350 flyer’s at Kinkos, 2 invitational sized flyer’s on one page
more bang for the buck.
And last of my 2 cents, do not forget if you own your own business you can write
off mileage ladies and gentlemen with gas prices climbing it would be nice to
get back 48cents per mile think about how much you drive then do the math. Even
if you don’t “own your own business” my accountant showed me how to become an
independent rep for very cheap and use this as “my business”. I did it for the
write off because I’m a Independent Contractor, its completely legal and I have
made some extra income by it. Talk about Win Win……
If anyone is looking for more info on how to market your business on a budget
please let me know, Ive become a queen on finding sites that let you create free
web-sites, gathering free leads for your business and legitimate ways to make
That’s my 2cents….more like 10cents 🙂
