Successful home business persons weight in. With so many people having to turn to home business to earn income these days, what would be your top preferred marketing method to help a home business newbie succeed? I'm mainly into network marketing home businesses, with a little affiliate marketing, so my comment is slanted in that favor. Categories: A) Online B) Offline C) Other A) Online: I have to go with forum and/or blog commenting. It has been such a great reward for me and easy to do. Find home business topics and insert yourself in the conversation. B) Offline: Postcard Advertising is a clear winner here. Anyone can do this. Getting your message directly in the hands of ideal prospects can't be beat. Direct response mail still thrives in the internet age. C) Other: I'd have to say word of mouth. Not just family and friends, but local activity and events. This allows for immediate contact and rapport to be able to share your opportunity, product, etc. I believe more people fail in their home business success pursuits do to a failure to consistently and effectively market their business. While this doesn't cover effectiveness, I hope the thread helps home business newbies get ideas on where to start. All The Best!
