Default Handmade Card Business - How to Promote?

Hi everyone! Ok, So I have a website made. I have little labels that go on the back of my cards to show where they came from. I have a blog that is linked to my website.

Now granted, I just started selling my cards a little over a week ago. So far, I have had 18 cards to sell this month.

Now I'd like to know what you suggest to promote my business. All ideas are welcomed and surely appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Brandy

Nice idea Nice website!!!

If I were you I'd start selling some on ebay.


I'd try a few business people in town that you are acquanited with and let them know of your service. You might even let them have their first 1 or 2cards free. That way word would get around and they may actually feel an obligation to order a few because of your donation.

A business associte of mine once told me - "sometimes it's better not to charge someone, rather it's better to obligate them." Sounds a little screwy, but it's great marketing!!!

Also, you might want to make up some flyers or cheap cards and distribute them to realtors offices.

Just my 2 cents......

good ideas! I especially like the realtors ones. I'd have to make "new homes" cards. Thanks for the input...
