.Once you have set everything up, you are now ready to promote and sell your products or services. Marketing is an essential aspect of any business, and it entails building a sound and excellent reputation, then researching and locating potential clients.
You should allocate time every day to market your business. In fact, in the early days of your business, most of your time will be spent getting the word out about your business.
Mary Christensen gave this very interesting, albeit unconventional, advice in her book “Be a Party Plan Superstar: Build a 00,000-a-Year Direct Selling Business from Home00,000-a-Year Direct Selling Business from Home” on forcing yourself to make sure that you market your business every day. Granted that you may not be running a party planning business , or your marketing tactics may be different, the quote nonetheless highlights the importance of making sure that you do something to spread out the word about your business each day:
Buy a set of ten shiny bangles. Every morning, place the bangles on your left wrist as a promise to yourself that you will make ten calls. Each time you make a call, transfer one bangle to your right wrist until you have transferred every bangle across.
The bangles will tell you how many calls you must make before you can call it a day. If you are in danger of allowing yourself to be distracted or discouraged, your bangles will remind you that you committed to making ten calls. They’ll motivate you to find the time to squeeze in the extra calls instead of quitting before you reach your target.
