Use the Internet to your advantage
Firstly, you have an incredible resource at your fingertips: the Internet. If you have not already launched your own website, then you need to make sure that you sit down and create a site where you can showcase the products and services that you offer. Make sure that you build a website that is easy for visitors to navigate, browse your products and is also fully mobile responsive, meaning that they can use the site from their cell phone and tablet while out and about or on the go. Be sure to position your contact details in an obvious and easy to access place, and make sure that any contact us forms are linked to your database so that you can capture new, important leads. Finally, be sure to use social media channels to create a constant flow of posts, photos, tweets, and articles to link back to your site and ensure that the number of online followers you have continues to grow, boosting your profile.
As you are growing your business, you will not want to invest a huge chunk of your current earnings back into merchandising. So, it is crucial that any options you do choose are cheap, easy to create and effective. Consider campaign buttons to promote your product or service. You could also create bumper stickers to drop off at local cafes and restaurants, in addition to flyers or product leaflets that you can hand out and reprint easily when stocks are running low. Remember that by being resourceful you don’t have to let your business suffer. In this instance, you need to pick marketing tools that you can produce in bulk to get optimal results.
If you are trying to raise the profile of your home business, then make sure that you are resourceful. Use online resources such as the Internet and social media to raise your profile, and ensure that you boost your followers. You can also get creative and use flyers, stickers and pin buttons as marketing tools so that you can reach more people and ensure that your business presence continues to grow.
