  • Great tips, its certainly worth a try starting a business online, the costs are little compared to other sectors!

  • Absolutely, LOVE IT!
    I am new to my business and decided to work from home to cut cost from daycare, transportation and others. I have been using some of these strategies but you just confirmed what I was doing was on track. I picked up good pointers, which I feel will compliment my plan of action. Thank you for sharing.

  • I am glad I found your site...and have found someone who agrees is it hard to market!! My business is growing...but getting the word out about something new and exciting takes time. As a consultant ...I need to maximize exposure within a tight budget...and you have some good tips. My only problem is that my website does not allow links on it because I am a consultant for a larger company. Do you think Facebook or LinkedIn would work for cross promotion in other ways. Thanks again!!!

  • To Karin--I just discovered a great way to promote a book. It's called a Blog Tour. You can hire a company like for $200 and they set you up with 15-20 blogs that then interview you or review your book. I'm going to try it in January for Katie & Kimble.

  • Thank you Nataly, that is some great advice. I have been a little discouraged about not having much of a budget to work with for marketing. Marketiing is hard work!

  • Love this article Nataly and thanks for the great PR tip- I will have to look into that company. I wanted to add that article marketing is a great way to get targeted traffic. When you write articles send them to article directories like and other people can pick them up for their sites/blogs and spread the word about your site.

    I have to say this doubled my traffic and even provides me with media opportunities from them finding articles.
