There are many ways to get your business out so people will know you are ready for business. If you don’t get your name and/or business out there, you won’t get any business, which means your business won’t grow. There are many ways to get this done, but don’t feel you have to do all of them at one time.
The many ways to get your business out there:
- Use freelancing sites like oDesk, Elance, Freelancer, Guru, etc. This can be a great way to get some experience under your belt.
- Social Media – Start a social media page on things like Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn to share about what you are doing.
- Flyers – Put these at sites that will allow you to hang them. Places can include the local library, laundry mat, banks and stores.
- Blogs – If you have a special niche you will be providing services for you might want to consider using a blog. If you use a free one, it will also help you with the cost as well. Also, until you are able to pay for a website, this would be a great way to sell the services you will be providing. For example, if you look at my blog and the pages I have, I have included quotes from clients and will be adding to it. I will be adding a page about the services I offer and how to contact me for services. I use WordPress if you have LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, you can have your blog post show up on those pages as you write them.
There are many ways to get your business out for others to see. It is about how you use it. It is about using the resources you have wisely to be able to grow your business.
