If you're determined to spread the word about your work at home business, you've got to push the envelope. Literally. Here are some general basics that I've found very useful: 1) Word of mouth (Of course and definitely a MUST) 2) Business cards - Hand them out, not only to friends/family, but stick them in all your mail - even when you're paying bills! (I've received several business cards this way - and have used their services) 3) Create some flyers and hit the parking lots - It works too. A little legwork can bring in customers - so start walking. And yes, brochures work. Send them out after every order/job completion, perhaps with an offer of a discount on next purchase/service. 4) Email name signatures are also recommended, but personally, I don't usually click out of my email program to check something out. I will write the addy down and then visit - maybe. 5) A website is a must these days - You can go global without having to leave the comfort of your living room. 6) If you work for someone else; a high work ethic is a must. Go over and beyond what you think your employer wants of you. It pays off in the long run. 7) If you work for yourself; patience, patience, patience. Don't expect something for nothing. It may take months or even years to start making a profit in anything you decide to do. Just hang in there and don't give up.
