In today’s world of business everyone is trying to get the best bang for their buck whether it is purchasing online ads or becoming a sponsor at mainstream event. However there are so many small businesses that can not afford to be a part of these great opportunities. As a business owner I know this first hand, this is why I still use these 3 Old-Fashioned Tips To Market My Business

By Ayasha Roberson

Tip 1: Create Business Cards

I can’t begin to tell you that business cards are an excellent way to market your business. Other than yourself, it is second presentation of your business people see. Create a business card that has a logo of your business along with all your contact information such as Your full name, email address, phone number, website address and social media. I always include social media onto my business cards which is an amazing strategy to connect and increase my social media following.

Tip 2: Networking

Networking is essential to growing your business. I love to talking to people that I connect with. In order for me to hold a conversation there has to be a connection, which allows me to fully engage with the person in a candid dialogue. Some people will pass out their business cards and marketing material to random people they come across. I don’t think this is a good way to network your business and I actually I think it is a higher chance for the person to throw out whatever you have given them in the trash. I would suggest for you to just be yourself and you will eventually gravitate the right people to connect with you. I use this approach at networking events, conferences, seminars, and even with holding general conversations at church, work, community events and festivals.

Tip 3: Free Festival and Events

Look for free festivals and events to become a vendor. If you can participate in a festival for free that would be perfect, however, if the event require for you to pay I would only suggest to be apart of maybe one or two festivals as a paid vendor costing you between $25 to $30 to vend for the day. If the event cost, more than $30, then I would suggest not to participate in this event and find another free festival to participate in.
