Just wondering what other home business owners are doing to advertise their business and reach new customers. What method of advertising works best for you? Thanks.

I get good responses on Facebook and Linked-in. My business is more of a word of mouth business. So, if any of my local customers have Facebook or Linked-in I ask them to join me and leave good feedback for me on those sites.....Had a few from Manta as well.



Since I am in energy deregulation I do a lot of person to person marketing that works wonderful:) I would suggest this for any home business owner.....You never know who will be interested in what you have! (You MUST come out of your BOX)

I tried paying for advertising but that didn't work nearly as well as contacting past customers for upgrades/accessories to what they bought. My newsletter earned me $40 sitting on my duff this week in 2 days. Nothing beats reservicing. Craigslist has worked for bookings.

I think the best advertising is face to face. You sharing with people what you love to do. That way they can feel how passionate you are about what you do...best of all it's free.

I think people answer in spurts. My family has a home business and we operate soley on word of mouth. We network a lot around town and form strategic alliances with with people that feed our business. Example - we sell health and life insurance so we partner with people that sell p&c and refer clients to one another. What are you currently doing for advertising ?
