It takes proper budgeting when it comes to running a business. Many people fail because of improper budgeting. You must realize that it takes money to advertise your business. Many people fail because they don't have the budget to advertise until they make a sale and you can't make a sale without advertising. So you are stuck in the middle. So many will give up and not even get their business a chance.
There are many ways to advertise your business for little money. One way is to have some T-shirts or hats made up. You should be able to find someone to make them up for as little as $5 or $10 each. Give them to everybody you know and have them wear them in public so your name will be out there for peolpe to see. You can also volunteer as an "expert" in your area of expertise. For instance, If your a tree trimmer and a heavy storm has hit your area, contact your newspaper and offer precautions for homeowners to take while awaiting for someone to do the cleanup work. Quoted with your name in your local newspaper is advertising that no amount of money can buy.
Most people just starting out with their home business will be tight with their money and they should be. Spending lots of money in a short period of time will gather many prospects quickly, but once the money is gone the people will dwindle too. Marketing your business on a limited or cheap budget can be alot of hard work and time consuming because you will have to do more of the work yourself.
Your local restaurants are a great place to advertise your business. Try talking with a small restaurant owner about working a deal with their placemats. Try gathering several small business owners in your neighborhood to put together an advertising placemat for your group. Depending on your budget you can make them plain or fancy as you like. But each business will have a spot on the placemat with their advertisment. Once you have them printed up give them to your local restaurants to use. Not to many restaurants will say no to free placemats.
If you can afford it, sponsor a local sport team and supply the uniforms, with your name on them of course, and reap the benefits of the advertising. This is a more expensive proposition, but perhaps your can work with the uniform supplier on a bartered deal to exchange some of the service costs for the uniforms.
There are many ways to advertise for very little money. Just keep your eye open for different ideas and you will find plenty of them.
