|Tips for Your Home Business|
© Terri Seymour of www.seymourproducts.com
1. Get biz cards made up and have them with you
always. Leave them at restaurants, send them with
your monthly bills, post them on bulletin boards, hand
them out to people you talk to. Always be aware of
2. Along the same lines, always have catalogs or
brochures in your car. You never know when
someone might ask to see your products.
3. Do Not Forget to label all catalogs, brochures,
order blanks, etc with your company name and
address and URL (if applicable). You can either
stamp them on or make your own labels. You can
get inexpensive adhesive labels from Wal-Mart or
other stores as well.
4. Get out there and get yourself and your product
known. Talk about your products as much as you can
to as many people as you can. Make it a part of your
daily routine. Make your new business a part of every
single day. Always be watching for opportunities.
They are everywhere!
5. Make sure you always have the latest catalogs.
6. It helps also to have some sample items available
so people can see the quality of the products. This
can increase your orders.
7. Keep track of everyone who you give catalogs to
or who orders from you to start building your mailing
list. Get addresses and email addresses if possible
to build your list. Stay in touch with these people
and go the extra mile for your customers or potential
8. Online marketing is great, but should be used in
conjunction with other marketing methods such as flea
markets, catalog distribution, home parties, mail order
9. Study, research, and learn marketing techniques, how
to sell, advertising ideas and tips. We recommend some
of these books to start:
They are filled with great ideas and advice.
10. Print out flyers and mail them out to local stores
and shops. Let them know what you are offering and
give your phone number. Flyers can be passed out in
parking lots as well. Make sure you have permission.
11. Contact radio stations and offer your products as
prizes for contests for some great exposure.
12. Talk to schools, churches, and other organizations
that might be interested in using your products for
13. Have your catalogs and biz cards with you at kids’
sports events. You could easily get orders just by
arousing interest in your catalogs.
14. There are so many things you can do. Everytime you
get or hear of an idea that interests you, write it down
in your planner or notebook. Organize your marketing
and advertising efforts and ideas.
15. Local Papers - Run your ads in local newspapers.
You can usually get these at very reasonable rates. Ask
your local paper if they would consider doing a story
about your business. Local papers frequently do a
write up for local business owners.
Building a home business takes time and effort and then
some, but do not give up. Have passion for your
business and for your customers. You can succeed!
