Hi. How do you make a profit when you're providing your product for free
? Are you providing free coffee machines as a way to advertise your coffee business? The way I look at it, you can't make money out of providing free stuff to people. I hope you had made it more specific.
I have built a database and have been sending emails to prospective clients. What else can I do to get new clients?
Regardless of what you're in the business for -- providing free stuff or paid ones-- it would be awesome if:
(1) you built a website where you can post your products and create a blog page where you can discuss anything about coffee while using SEO
(2) Created a Facebook Page
and made use of FB ads to reach your target audience.
(3) You can also post a Craigslist
ad on a weekly basis about what your product or services is all about and what you can do those other businesses under the same niche can't.
