Then What Do I Do?

Well, you've just started a business and you need to get it up off the ground. You'll likely be interested in a logo design, outdoor sign, business cards, a brochure and a website. These things cost money that you might have available or not. In either case, I recommend the following:

  • Introduce your new venture to the people that you know and that you believe would be likely to do business with you, such as; family, friends and those you do business with. Why? Because these people know you, and, as a result, are more likely to do business with you.


With this effort, you'll probably find some work. Believe it or not, you've just utilized direct marketing to initiate sales.


  • When you're hired be sure to ask for a testimonial, such as a written statement explaining how happy your new client is with your work and referrals.
  • AND -the simple question, "Do you know anyone who might be interested...?" Asking for referrals can bring in thousands of dollars in business in a short time.
